A great experience for the whole family.

Star Star Star Star Star - Not very attractive experience
Written by Hamza Darifi, 04-03-2024

We waited two hours to validate our tickets, knowing that we had already paid for our tickets online. 20€ for 10 minutes in the sky, knowing that you're not flying, you're on a rope. I wouldn't recommend it.

Written by Michèle Dejonghe, 18-09-2023

our activity was cancelled at the last minute, without warning, on the pretext that it was a bit breezy... the staff didn't seem to want to work after 6pm! as we were from the provinces, we won't be able to do this activity again.

Hello Mrs. Ballon de Paris, We're sorry, but it's true that Ballon de Paris must take weather conditions into consideration for safety reasons. If it's windy, the balloon is absolutely not allowed to fly. I think they are the first to regret this.

A great experience, but before you go, make sure that the weather conditions are right for the balloon to fly.

Written by Jason Serret, 24-08-2023

The attraction is very good, and the staff are very friendly. However, given the temperatures and the full sun, extra umbrellas are needed for shade, as waiting an hour in the sun is complicated.

The balloon ride was amazing! First off going up in a hot air balloon is exciting but being able to go up and see Paris was beyond my dreams! I would highly recommend this activity to anyone that visits this beautiful city. The people in charge were courteous and answered any questions that I had.

The balloon from Paris didn't take off in the end because it was windy. Our tickets are still valid.

The balloon wasn't flying and the phone number to check it wasn't answering. So 2 hours round trip for... nothing.

Star Star Star Star Star - poor organization
Written by JOSEPH ELBAZ, on 12-05-2022

I bought 3 tickets (1 adult and 2 children) on the internet, paid for them and the next day, the children were thrilled at the idea of going up in the air with this balloon ,......MAIS: a 20-metre long queue, I went to the ticket office and showed the purchase of the 3 tickets, only to be sent back to the queue and told that I had to queue to be given a "boarding pass". We waited for nearly an hour in the heat, and as the queue didn't move and the children couldn't take it anymore, we left disappointed. Thank you
