Up, up and away in Paris's beautifu, beautiful hot air balloon... That's the jingle you will be singing as you plunge through the Parisian skyline overlooking the city's famous monuments below. The Paris tourist office likes to boast that this is the biggest hot air balloon in the world. True or not, it's still worth checking out this family friendly attraction (under 3 yrs old ride for free and 3-11yrs. old for half-price) for yourself. The altitude reached is a whopping 150 meters above the Seine and since it launches just on the far side of the Eiffel Tower, the views of the city and its surrounding landmarks is nothing short of spectacular. This helium balloon, also known as the Ballon Generali, is a tethered hot-air balloon so no need to fear that you might end up in the Atlantic on a windy day!
- Tours and Excursions: "Price to ride is only 12 euros for adults, 6 euros for kids. This makes it one of the most affordable forms of good, clean, fun entertainment in the city for you and the whole family. That said, the operation of this tethered hot-air balloon depends wholly on the weather."
- Best for Tours and Excursions Because: Up, up and away. In my Beautiful Ballon de Paris. Gliding above even the Eiffel Tower. How could you possibly miss this?
