It was a fantastic experience. The team is very professional and kind. It was really important for them to provide a great experience. Take-off and landing was much smoother than I expected, and it was much smoother than with any other airplane. It was really great that during the fly the captain showed the different local attractions, mountains, and as the ballon was slowly moving around (in circles), everyone had the opportunity to see all of these. Noone missed anything. By the time we landed, the transfers are already arrived. So after the ceremony ended we were heading back to our hotel. Hopefully we can repeat this experience in the future as well!

Fantastic view of Lake Balaton and the surrounding hills! I was there with my children and had to go back next year. It is breathtaking to see everything from above in a so slow flying balloon! We were lucky and crossed the lake for the first time. The second landing was close to Sümeg (a city with a nice castle on a hill). After landing we drank the Champagne and were transferred back to our hotel. I think we go back again this year!!!

We planned hot air ballooning over the lake Balaton for a year, and now we have been lucky to try it. Even when booked it is still risky because of the weather which can not be controlled. We booked our trip to a Tuesday and on Monday we got a text that it will be cancelled due to bad weather, so had a choice for another day of the week. Luckily on Wednesday weather was nice and we went to that trip. The company comes by their bus for us within 30 km area of the departure place and later took us back.Very professional team, constant radio contact with the car (they followed us on the roads) and air traffic controllers. 18 people plus the pilot, 1300 km height, huge silence around and to be honest it was hot- because of the gas and hot air. But it is a very unique experience, and definitely worth to try once in a lifetime. The wind did not allow us to fly over Balaton only over small Balaton( a smaller lake), Heviz spa and Zala river, we turned around always that everyone could see everything. Also they took professional picture and video of us with a long assembled selfie stick, and people could buy these videos(we did). Be careful after landing, because the area is full with mosquitoes (thousands of them:) Then we got champagne and a diploma to prove our balloon flight. It was a very special sunset from the balloon and a special evening. Highly recommend.
