I’m afraid of heights and thought I’d be scared the entire flight but I’ve never felt safer, the stunning views helped! The crew were also very kind and helpful throughout

The staff were very friendly and professional, and the balloon ride was absolutely incredible. It was very smooth all throughout and the landing was much softer than expected. Would definitely recommend this experience!

After the initial haze of a very early morning start, everything about this experience was surprising. They are extremely professional, with explanations of what's happening and why, continually, without being boring. Fantastic scenery and wildlife, and hands on with packing the balloon away at the...More
