Highly recommend and big thanks to pilot Juozas and his team for making the nervous attendees feel comfortable and safe. Juozas and his team made us, that were very nervous about the flight, feel very comfortable. The flight turned out not scary at all and was beautiful. The views were amazing and we even saw some wild deer (and another group some wild boar). The landing was a little rough for the nervous attendees, but the pilot guided us through it perfectly.

Helt fantastisk luftballongflyvning. Heldig med været, meget bra opplegg ved henting og bringing til hotellet, Suverent hyggelige operatører, fin utsikt. Vilnius er en av få,om ikke den eneste hovedstad/storby i Europa,man kan fly over med luftballong.
Fantastic once in a lifetime experience Both the driver and pilot were kind and professional and we had a fantastic time. We flew over Trakai and the views were stunning and also had several other balloons around us which was very cool! Even if you’re afraid of heights this is possible because it starts and lands super slow and doesn’t seem that high.

Highlight Ein Highlight unseres Städtetrips. Wir haben uns sehr wohl und sicher gefühlt. Muss man mal gemacht haben. Sehr zu empfehlen.
Hot Air Balloon ride Smile Balloon picked us up from our hotel in Vilnius before sunrise and transferred us to Trakai for the Hot Air Balloon ride. We were 7 (including the pilot). We had a great ride with magnificent views and I would do this optional again in a heartbeat if I ever had the chance. Highly recommend it.
