hot air ballooning

thinking of doing a hot air balloon ride over the loire valley. Is this possible? Does anyone know how much and any website to look at? Will be travelling in April 2011 and there will be 6 of us.

Totally possible and France Montgolfier would be the way to go. They were wonderful! It isn't cheap, but it worth the experience. If you want more info, details here: …blogspot.com/2010/09/loire-valley-hot-air-b…

and this one:

http://www.rextravel.com/bombard.htm

We tried to book them twice -- the first time (unbeknownst to me) hubby had planned to propose whilst aloft....and the second time for our 10th anniversary.

Both times, the trips were cancelled because of very foul weather -- absolutely no fault of Buddy Bombard at all -- and they were extremely nice about refunding our money both times.

(we did NOT book a tour with them -- both times, we were able to book just the balloon flight....)

If we ever have the nerve to book it one more time, we'd book again with them.
