One of the most peaceful activities

This activity is one of the most peaceful activities in and around Mumbai and Pune.
This was a gift to me and my husband from my brother.
We reached at the starting point, and experienced the entire journey, right from the opening the ballon to getting it started.
It was one of the most beautiful Sunrises we have ever experienced. We were rising up with the sun, flying with the birds, in between the mountains.
We flew inmids the clouds (4000ft high) and as low till the ballon kissed the water in the river…
It was truely an amazing experience. We truely experienced serenity and peace.. guess that was the best gift ( before the wedding madness started)
I would recommend this to everyone, kids, yound people and even old people….

Cheers…

Highly recommend this to all age groups

One of the most serene experiences we had till date!!
We did this ride as a family (myself, my husband & my son 8 yrs) & we had a wonderful time.
Could not imagine we could breathe such clean air within an hour’s drive from Pune city.
It was my husband’s birthday & sky waltz helped us celebrate it with STYLE!!
Kudos to our pilot Ali, to make the flight sooo memorable!!
We highly recommend this activity to all age groups.

One suggestion: Pls stick to your timing. You guys were perfectly on time but you should be stricter with the passengers. We missed seeing the start of inflation of the balloon as our co passengers were late.
