San Miguel de Allende: Hot Air Balloon Shared Experience

1. San Miguel de Allende: Hot Air Balloon Shared Experience

Rise with the sunrise for an amazing experience on a hot air balloon. Listen to a safety briefing and then set off for a ride you'll never forget. Take in views of the whole area of San Miguel de Allende. Top it all off with an American breakfast. Head early to the meeting point and get ready to watch the landscape unfold in front of and beneath you. Find your captain at the meeting point, where you'll be provided with some safety instructions in order to get you ready to fly. Then, you will be taken from the meeting point to the balloon port. At the port, watch how the experts build the hot air balloons with fire and set them up for your flight. Hop in the nest and get ready to soar. Once in the sky, admire beautiful panoramic views of San Miguel de Allende: the downtown from far off, the Presa Isabel Allende, the open fields, and the other hot air balloons decorating the landscape. Snap unforgettable photos of your surroundings and, of course, some selfies. When the balloon lands, you'll have the chance to share a cheers with the captain and crew with a non-alcoholic cider. You'll then be transferred in a van back to the meeting point for a tasty American breakfast and to receive your flight certificate.

What people are saying about San Miguel de Allende

Amazing experience in San Miguel de Allende. Our guide, Ariushka, was excellent. She is very knowledgeable and passionate about history which made for a great tour. She also gives plenty of suggestions of things to do and paces to eat during your free time. While there are many great sights and things to take photos of, calling it an instagram tour is a bit of a disservice as you also learn about the history and details of the city and not just take a few photos. The driver also did an excellent job of getting us there and back. Would definitely recommend it as a day trip to see and learn about San Miguel de Allende.

The tour was super nice, the city is something of a magical land and it was amazing to have a walk and plenty of time to discover all the surroundings. Our guide was lovely as well, she answered our questions as best as possible. The con thing would be the pick up place was at the monument of revolution ( with a huge street surrounding it) so not knowing where to be, we lost half an hour trying to find the guides. Otherwise pretty nice experience!

Staff @Volar en Globo was fantastic, on time and the views are spectacular.
