It was our first balloon flight. The experience of meeting other passengers and the flight crew was a wonderful. Seeing the work of setting it all up and the gentle lift off. Wonderful to see the sunrise and the peacefulness of just soaring above the land. We loved it very much.

Very friendly service, humorous to liven us and knowledgeable to make the experience worth wild. Definitely worth the early morning wake up on a Saturday morning. Finished off with a lovely breakfast with a great group of people. Cant wait to go again might even take the kids if they are luck enough.

My hot air balloon ride on Saturday 3rd December, 2016 was awesome. It was so peaceful, calm and smooth-we literally floated. The take-off and landing were so smooth- we hardly felt anything. The hour long flight felt like 5mins! Although it was a cloudy morning, we were still able to see a fair way into the distance. The crew were... More
