Great experience from the still dark inflating of the balloon; the lift off, the flight and those amazing sunrise views - all the way to the soft landing and helping with the pack-up. A beautiful experience topped off with a champagne breakfast. Perfect.

My husband brought me a voucher, I'd wanted to do it for years but he was too scared. He absolutely loved it as did I. He couldn't believe how much control they have over the balloon. The Pilot was an absolute professional.
