During the 1-hour ﬂight, soar over the Aqueduct, Cathedral, and Alcázar Real at heights of up to 1,000 meters and learn how the balloon works from your pilot.

Depending on your option selected, continue the tour with a guided walking tour of the Roman Aqueduct, a UNESCO World Heritage site.
Marvel at this historic 1st-century monument, considered Spain's most important example of Roman-era civil engineering.
Next, see Spain's last built Gothic cathedral and the former royal palace and fortress, the Alcázar Rea. Stand on a cliﬀ at the conﬂuence of two rivers near the Sierra de Guadarrama mountain range and enjoy the view of the fortress and rivers.
At the end of your tour, enjoy some free time in Segovia for lunch. Ask your guide for tips on the best place to taste the typical cochinillo (roast suckling pig). After lunch, head back to the center of Madrid in a comfortable minibus.
