I will be visiting Geneva, Bern, Lausanne, Lucern, Mt.Pilatus and Zurich.
Will there be an opportunity to go on a hot air balloon ride at any of these places?
I don't have any experience with hot air balloon rides. But at least I found this webside www.ballonreisen.ch/en /swiss-balloons-flights in English. I hope this will help you find what you are looking for.
