Private guides for individuals or small groups: Loire valley castles by hot air ballon
You will be whisked from your hotel early in the morning, or after lunch, and driven to Maintenon, 70 km west of Paris. In the summer time, flights have to take off with the morning currents of air. In the winter time, flights can also happen in the afternoons. You will enjoy a scenic and exhilarating one-hour balloon flight over the Château of Maintenon, the Aqueduct and the lovely green countryside of France. You will feel lighter than air as you float noiselessly over the beautiful scenery: castles, picturesque villages—don’t forget to bring your camera! When you land, you will enjoy a champagne toast to celebrate your flight. After the flight, you will be brought back to your hotel in Paris. The flight is confirmed the night before by the pilot depending on weather conditions. (Do give us a mobile phone number to reach you). If there is a sudden change in the weather, he may rarely cancel on the day of the flight, because your safety is paramount. If the flight is cancelled due to bad weather, you will get a full refund. It is best to try to keep two days open for this excursion. You will be insured for the flight. Children under 10 and handicapped persons not allowed. Please be dressed sporty and warm. This will not be a fully private flight. There may be other persons in the balloon with you. We can arrange lunch in a lovely garden restaurant in the countryside or in Paris for 50€ per person.
