Tour description provided by Viator

Float effortlessly through the skies in France and admire sweeping views over the Loire Valley on this 3-hour hot-air balloon ride. After helping your pilot inflate the hot-air balloon, step into the basket and drift high over the Loire Valley. Admire sweeping views over the scenery below, then toast your flight with a glass of Champagne on landing. Tour includes round-trip travel from Francueil, near Chenonceau.
After perhaps helping to prepare your hot-air balloon, climb into the basket in the village of Francueil — near Chenonceau — between 6am and 7am (for the morning flight) or between 7pm and 8pm (for the evening flight). Then, watch as your pilot ignites the burners to send you into the wide, blue yonder. During your 1-hour flight, listen as your pilot points out the forests, lakes, rivers, and towns of the Loire Valley. Enjoy the peace and quiet hot-air ballooning offers, and capture the spectacular scenery on camera from your vantage point in the sky. On landing, enjoy light refreshments accompanied by a flute of Champagne to toast your flight, then transfer back to your starting point to conclude your tour.
