Far from the Castle
Teresa K
, Oct 2019
The hot air balloon ride was very calming and nice, but we did not go over Trakai Island Castle as described in the description on Viator. The main reason I booked this flight was to see the castle, so it was disappointing that we were actually quite far away from it. I understand that of course it is hard to predict what the wind/weather will do. However we could see in the distance that the 5-6 balloons of other companies had taken off from a different point and went directly over or next to the castle. It's understandable that it cannot be guaranteed, so perhaps Viator should update the description on the site to just be the Trakai "area" instead. That way there would be no false expectations of seeing the castle. Otherwise the staff were great. Landing was bumpy, but not an issue. "First baptizing ceremony" was fun and a very nice touch.

We are really sorry that you did not get a close-up of the castle. We do try to fly over it every time we fly in Trakai. Since we depend on wind, unfortunately, not always we succeed in making precise calculations. We hope that next time we will go right over it!
Amazing experience!

This was absolutely amazing experience. Many thanks to the whole team for being so nice and helpful to us. I especially would like to recommend the morning flights. The views and the whole atmosphere are astonishing! Once again Thank You all and looking forward for the next flight.

We must agree that there is something extraordinary about the morning flight. Maybe it is the tranquility and peace. Thanks for taking your flight with us and we hope to meet you in the skies again!

What an amazing experience to float over the Lithuanian countryside and look down on Trakai Castle! Our pilot was clearly an expert and made the trip special in every way. You must do this!

We were on a group trip that included a similar hot air balloon flight Vilnius is the only European capital which allows the flights over the city proper. But since we were coming in earlier, I booked this trip for the first time available. The flight was washed out, as were several earlier flights. The next morning was also a no go. But the evening cleared up and eight balloons were lined up to go, as it was the first opportunity in a while. We went, my wife and I and two other couples, and had a wonderful time. Lots of families with small children came to play in the downtown park and watch the balloons. We had a great trip. We got there about 7:45 PM, took off at 8:45 PM and had an hour or so flight. Back at the hotel around 11:00 PM. Highly recommended. Note also that all other flights for the week were washed out by bad weather, so our planned group trip did not happen. I would also be remiss if I didn't mention Discover Lithuania and our guide Andre, who provided several other sight-seeing services for us. He coordinated with repeated phone calls the hot air balloon schedule, a special restaurant game dinner I had booked, and the day tours. He did all this even though the tours were booked seperately, not through him.

We ended up flying over Old Town I was a bit disappointed but quickly forgot about the castle once we were up in the air and the captured by the moment. Our pilot Arturus is a new personal hero of mine, he emits boss levels of zen. We first landed in a field occupied by an older women who wasn't frilled to have unannounced company but the cool captain took to the skies again after sweeping past some treetops he gracefully landed us in a beautiful meadow. Amazing trip. All the correspondence I had with the team was on point. No complaints. Would recommend. - Louis Applewhaite
