We sugesst you to book earlier because in summer season is high season and it is not easy to find tickets. Even you bought and reserved your ticket sometimes you can not have this tour because of weather conditions. So you will be refunded asap. After you buy the ticket or booked the flight you will be informed for the exact time that you will be picked up from your hotel for the balloon ride.
Before sunrise,about 4 or 5 a.m(depends on winter or summer time), you will be picked up from your hotel and driven to the field where balloons take off.
