Picked up from hotel to the takeoff site. When arrived at site, there was coffee/tea and croissant served for breakfast. The pilot then gave us a safety brief preflight and we watched the inflation of the balloon, hopped into the basket. The flight was amazing and the pilot gave us a nice commentary of where we were at and explained to us the locations as well as many of the flight procedures and landing sites. After the end of the flight, we had champagne, fruits and a souvenir. We were also offered a go-pro recording of our flight, at a cost. Overall, my girlfriend and I were very satisfied with the whole experience. Very professional! Highly recommend!

WONDERFUL experience♡ I am glad I chose the flight with them. From start to finish they have made it a unique, beautiful, impressive and emotional experience. A moonlight breakfast with candles, punctual pick-up at the hotel. All the staff are super friendly, but if you allow me and without underestimating the rest; The pilot was the best. Finding a Spanish pilot so many kilometers from home made us feel at home ♡ Thank you for your love. Ah! and they give you a little gift at the end of the flight that I will keep with a lot of love. Thank you so much; We will see us again.

Awesome experience 10/10, every thing was perfect from beginning to end. Pro tip bring your own usb stick if you wish to keep a free copy of the go pro video ( otherwise you can purchase one from them). I would highly recommend booking with golden eagle balloons.
