However, we have to cover the required extra fees to pay the pilot, our amazing team and staff who wake up early to follow up with your hot air balloon pilot’s crew even if the balloon ride is cancelled. In addition, the tour guides who volunteer for this very early departure have to wake around 03:00 and remain on duty until the pilot calls them to confirm or cancel the balloon ride.
