If you come with your own vehicle, to the meeting point at the Recinto Ferial La Peraleda in Toledo, here is where we will meet.
And now that we are all here, let's get the hot air balloon ready for take-off!
With the whole group, we'll meet our pilot. Before starting the take-off, and following the usual procedure, he will check all the equipment and when everything is ready, we will get into the basket.
Today we will get to know the Historical City of Toledo from a different perspective.
The balloon launch will be very smooth, you will hardly notice that the flight has started. The exact route of today's flight will depend entirely on the wind, as balloons cannot be directed.
Depending on its direction, our pilot will choose the exact takeoff point to fly over the city of Toledo and get the best scenario at our feet.
We will ascend above the town, allowing us to see the entire historical centre delimited by the city and embraced by the Tajo River.
From the air, the Cathedral and the Alcazar will take on new proportions.
Toledo was declared a World Heritage city in 1986 thanks to the great sample of the history of Spain that it represents, offering a Roman, Visigoth, Muslim, Jewish and Christian legacy.
Today we will see this sample of different cultures from a bird's eye view.
Landing is one of the most fun and exciting moments of ballooning in Toledo.
The approach flight will allow us to enjoy the landscape through the eyes of a bird, and even once we reach the ground the experience will not be over.
Flying in a hot air balloon is much more than a simple trip, around there is a tradition that will be repeated wherever you fly and anywhere in the world. After the flight, we will pick up the balloon following our pilot's instructions.
And once on the ground, toast! Once in the airfield, we will enjoy with the crew a glass of champagne and a picnic lunch with local products.
The first aeronauts were Jean-Francois Pilâtre de Roziers and the Marquis d'Arlandes. After their flight over Paris in 1783, they celebrated the happy event by toasting with champagne.
Since then, anywhere in the world where you fly in a balloon, this tradition is maintained and a toast is offered to all travelers.
With a full belly after tasting different local products and a glass of cold cava in hand, we will put the finishing touch to this unique experience.
You can never forget this day: here is your air baptismal certificate to remember it.
Should we set a date for the next ride?
If you have selected the extra transfer from Madrid, once the activity is over, we will meet the driver and start our way back.
You will arrive at your accommodation in Madrid between 13:00 and 14:30. The exact time will be confirmed that day with our guide.
