We had a wonderful time with France Montgolfières. Our wonderful pilot Andy was English which made it very easy to understand everything we had to do. (He also spoke very good French.) The journey was a dream -- it's so peaceful up in the air and it's a wonderful way to take in the sights. Andy did a great job pointing out all you can see from the air.

To begin the day we were driven down to the take-off site and helped ourselves to croissants and hot drinks while the guys prepared the balloon -- which was interesting to see in its own right. Then the flight, which for us was around an hour. After the landing and helping to pack up the balloon we had the traditional ballooner's toast -- a glass of the delicious Bau (a sparkling Muscat made locally in Fourcalquier) which was a great treat!

This was our first hot-air balloon ride so we weren't quite sure what to expect. The entire thing felt very safe and secure. The ride wasn't bumpy or turbulent at all. The landing was expertly managed and comfortable. Andy is clearly a very experienced pilot and we felt in very safe hands the entire time.

Highly recommended.

Top tip: if you're not staying in Fourcalquier, book yourself in for a morning session at the L'Occitan spa at La Couvent de Minimes afterwards -- it's right nearby and was also a lovely experience. It was a good way to make the travel a bit more worthwhile.

Very nice people. They made sure we knew how to get there and they gave plenty of refreshments. It is a lot of physical activity at the end!

Exhilarating! In the country of our ancestors, my brother and I, along with our spouses, took to the heavens! A first ride for them, it was all we hoped it would be... Very professional. Very beautiful. Very much recommended! Fernando, our pilot, was as reassuring and at ease with having to reschedule us (twice! due to weather, in two different cities!) as he was with soaring us up to 4,700 feet. Espresso and croissants before, Champagne after. Syrup made from the regional herbs. Expertly done. And the view! The countryside... wow.

Paris Montgolfière sells tickets, everywhere: on their website, Tripadvisor, Facebook. They sell.
But is their goal to allow you to use their ticket?...
With COVID, it has become impossible to find a date on a weekend, except 6 months in advance. Knowing that they close in April, you really need almost a year in advance.
Of course, you can extend the date by one year. It's 35€ more per person.
So, when you buy your ticket on the internet, you don't realize that it is unusable, except on a Thursday at 3pm. Do you work? Too bad for you! They are cashing in, and that's what counts!
Is this an abuse situation? Not according to their terms and conditions. So they continue!
A piece of advice: don't trust them!
