The whole experience has seemed very good EXCEPT that the place where you check-in before taking the balloon and waiting is not equipped for the winter months. It is in the middle of the desert, more than 2000 meters high, in January at 5:30 am. It is terrifyingly cold and even if you wear warm clothes it is truly unbearable. There are 10 stoves outside, in the open, for people who smoke. It's truly horrible and everyone was complaining about it. Then breakfast at 9am same story. In a very beautiful patio in the open air where everyone is uncomfortable because of the horrible cold it is. For the rest, the pilot and the flight itself are very good, although I would prefer that they not ask for tips.

Exciting experience! As soon as we arrived, breakfast of biscuits and fruit, at dawn we were divided into groups and assigned a hot air balloon: the view from above is really crazy! the only negative note is that there is no effective presence as a guide, who perhaps can illustrate what you see from above. The duration of the flight was about 20min, but in my opinion it could last at least half an hour. At the end of the flight there was a rich buffet based on eggs, tacos and other typical dishes. Recommended experience but value for money is not the best.

It was a very emotional and great experience and will be remembered forever. Everything was right from start to finish. We were picked up at our accommodation in the city and brought back later. Bear in mind that it's very cold and you should bring enough warm clothes - but it doesn't take anything away if you really want to do it!
