Myself and my partner came here on our first day in paris, it is set a a very beautiful park and you can see for miles! The balloon goes up to around 150m. I'm not a fan of heights but I felt very safe in the basket Would highly recommend this at just €15 each!

We had some time to kill waiting for our river cruise to leave from the Port Jeval Bas, and saw the balloon in the park right next door. It was totally worthwhile! Just a short wait to take off, then we took off and enjoyed the view from 150m (about 500 feet) above the city. Good views of the Seine, Eiffel Tower, Les Invalides, Montparnasse Tower, etc. Great fun!!

It felt so quick because it was soooo beautiful, but definitely worth the price! They said that the balloon will fly 150 metres from the ground and the staff carefully instruct us both in French and English, if you dont speak French just let them know that they need to instruct in English too just to be safe. You have to hold on the handrail on take off and landing and also stand on some order to keep the balance, but when you are up you can walk anywhere you want. The position with the view of Eiffel tower will always be semi-crowded but you have to speak up to get your turn. It was nice and definitely a great way to enjoy Paris!

Yes it's not as high as the Eiffel Tower but it is a much more relaxed experience, there's no cheap tack being sold, and the surroundings are lovely. The view is great and it's also nice to see the Eiffel Tower from a height. The queue was about 40 minutes and the journey itself is 12 minutes which is just enough. The Andre-Citroen park in which the balloon is located was undergoing some works but it is still a lovely location, especially the fountains which are great fun for the kids (bring a change of clothes for them!). Overall, I maybe would not travel far to get here but if you are staying in the area it is a highly recommendable and enjoyable experience.
