At dawn or at dusk, we lift near the most interesting castles of Loir-et-Cher (Chenonceau, Amboise, Chaumont-sur-Loire, Blois), depending on the seasons, at the time when the light is most beautiful. The lift takes place only if there are good weather conditions (no rain and wind at less than 20 km/h).Our activity lasts three hours : unpack and inflate the balloon, one hour flight, landing and return to the original lift site. If you desire, you may take part in the preparation of the balloon, which is always an exciting and surprising experience.At the landing, the passengers are always very happy; they are charmed by this wonderful escapade. As you embark thrilled by such a pleasant journey and because such happiness should never be celebrated alone, a flute glass of "Pétillant de Loire" and a certificate are presented by the pilot and his crew just to comfirm frienship

Truly magical. I enjoyed learning the mechanics of getting a hot-air balloon up into the air; indeed, I was enlisted to help get the balloon inflated. But the flight itself was one of the highlights of our summer through Europe. The Château de Chenonceau from the air was truly extraordinary. But the remainder of the trip was equally magical --...

What a wonderful experience! Everything was well organised and on time (overall experience lasted 2 1/2 hours). Pilot was really friendly as were the rest of the aerocom staff. It is such a lovely way to experience the castles of the Loire Valley, stunning views and it is soooo calm up in the sky! We took off in Amboise and... More

Trip was well organised, staff very helpful especially as we are elderly and not very agile, we were lifted in and out of balloon by caring staff. Views were fantastic, wonderful experience followed by Champagne and a Certificate to show our grandchildren and great grandchildren, who think we are "cool"

We took the early morning flight originating across the river from Amboise. The weather was perfect. The experience isn't just the flight; it's preparing the balloons, the flight, the landing, assisting in gathering the balloon and the breakfast of croissants and champagne. This was our first hot air balloon ride and any apprehensions we had disappeared as the professionalism of... More

We took an early morning (6am) flight from Amboise, what a unique way to see the beautiful countryside and hidden gems of houses and chateaux. You really feel like a bird, bar the noise when the burners are on, there is total silence. The pilot was very experienced and gave good descriptions of everything, albeit in mostly in French, adding... More

Balloon rides are expensive, but they are a great experience. Our guides were knowlegeable and spoke both French and English. I chose Aerocom over some other providers because their policy for bad weather is that you don't pay unless they fly. Others offer only a raincheck for a later date which is not useful if you have travelled internationally or... More

Because of weather conditions, we had to reeschedule the flight to the next morning, but the flight could not have been better! We recomend it very much, it was an indescribable exerience! And we only payed on the day we took the... More

It was an Awesome experience. The guides were very friendly and on time. The ride lasted about an hour, we flew next to Chenneoceau castle. We saw five deer. The landing was exciting, it is something you need to experience. After the ride is over champagne for everyone. Well worth the money

Ten years ago I promised my wife a balloon ride over the Loire Valley for a land-mark birthday. Having read the reviews from Aerocom Montgolfiere, we felt comfortable booking with them because of their good reputation, excellent reviews, as well as their unique policy of "no deposit" or "no charge" until the flight takes place. Everything about our experience was... More

We have wanted to take a balloon ride for years and are so thrilled we waited until we were in such a beautiful location. There's no guarantee what you will see as you go where the wind takes you, but everything there has beauty. Aerocom staff were extremely professional and we never felt unsafe. There equipment is in excellent shape.... More
