A hot air balloon ride is an amazing experience ! It is very peaceful and relaxing. From the balloon, you will discover many properties, gardens and landscapes you can't see from the ground.

These are few tips we'd like to share with you :

1. Nobody can tell you in advance where you’ll land. It means that you can't be guaranteed to see this castle or this town. Depending on the winds, in 1 hour ride, you can travel over 5 miles or 12 miles. A car from the balloon company will follow the flight and pick you up at the arrival point to take you back to your car at the departure point. 

2. Balloons are very sensitive to weather conditions: a little wind and the ride can be postponed.

3. It gets very hot when the pilot turns the gas jets on. We warmly recommend you to wear a cap or a hat. It is usually about 6°C (42°F) warmer in the gondola than on the ground.

If you understand and agree in all these points, you’ll have a great time !!

What FRANCE JUST FOR YOU can do for you?
As a hot air balloon ride is subject to weather conditions and can be postponed or cancelled, we take care of the booking for you and organize a ride with a very friendly English speaking pilot. Then you'll pay directly the pilot, so you do not have to advance the funds if by any bad luck, you could not get on the balloon.

We looked at group travel companies including those who specialize in "small" groups. None of them had the flavor we were looking for. In my search for somethin new I happened …

France Just for You - Emile and Laura - accomplished the task with skill and knowledge.

We are a group of Wine Aficionados and we recently traveled to Bordeaux, Burgundy, Champagne, and Paris and were very impressed with this service. It took us quite some time to formalize (and agree) what we wanted in terms of places and wineries we wanted to visit, but in the end "France Just for You" came through with excellent organization and …

In 2013 I had 2 big reasons to plan a trip to France: a new grand baby boy in Avignon, and I wanted to surprise my husband with a trip to Normandy. He absolutely loves anything and everything he can find to read or watch that is related to WWII. So, I started exploring online for a custom tour designer that could put together a great itinerary for …

My boyfriend and I spent a week in Paris last month and we decided that we would do a couple of day-tours outside of the city during our trip. We really wanted to avoid the typical tour-bus day-tour and the crowds that come along with these kinds of tours – we wanted something more personalized that would allow us to go at our own pace. I found the …
