My communication with Lionel throughout the pre-ballooning day was superb. There were two balloons on this pristine morning. Our pilot spoke very little English, and so the commentary was minimal. However, the views spoke for themselves. The entire crew was efficient and polite. I would...More

Our pilot, Lionel, launched the balloon perfectly to fly over the chateaus at Beynac, Castelnaud, Feyrac, Les Milandes (Josephine Baker's chateau), Marqueyssac, and Montfort. What stunning views of chateaus, ancient stone manor houses, the Dordogne River, rocky cliffs, dense forests and verdant farm fields! It's...More
