The organization was perfect from start to finish and we do not regret having chosen Royal Queen to make our flight can be a little more expensive than the competition but with more comfort (it limits to 20 people in the basket or elsewhere can go up by 30….! ) The commander of the Balloon was very professional as well as his team on the ground he deposited like a flower the nacelle at the mm ready on the trailer on the ground without the slightest jolt, we were blown away…. !
