"Incredible experience. I was expecting to get a little anxious as I have problems with heights but not in the slightest. The staff were friendly and very professional. I would recommend it but better to book direct and not through an agent, we did Red Letter Days!!"

"What an amazing experience and top service from the team. 
We only booked 2 weeks ago to fly on the Thursday but phoned up on Tuesday to add a 3rd person. 
Less than 2 hours later we got a text message to say some space had come up on this evening's flight and would we like to go, so we did. Fantastic! 

Highly recommend"

Very friendly and helpful throughout the balloon flight. 
Looking forward to doing it again."

Mr DC - 2012-08-09

"A most memorable experience, can't wait till next time. Very professional and friendly pilot (Tim) highly recommended. 
Lost my mobile phone at the end of the flight but was found later in the balloon by the crew and posted back to me. What a result!"

"Hi, Lucy, Linda and I flew with you on Monday 18th June. We are still buzzing and would like to order one of the in-flight photos please... Can I also say a very belated thankyou to Tim the Pilot. You made it extra special and your skills were very much appreciated. Many thanks."

Mr JG - 2012-07-04

"Big thank you, for a great experience :-) Had my flight with you on Monday, please pass on my thanks to all of your crew. From the initial meeting at the launch site, helping with the set up, the flight, helping pack away at the landing site and the champagne stop on the way back. Not forgetting the sweet guy driving the mini bus, who had a key to the loo when we got back to the launch site. The professionalism and kindness shown by all added to a wonderful evening. x"

"Can I just thank you again for the professional yet friendly way you handled my balloon flight and also the arranging of it. It was a perfect way to propose, even though I didnt get a message mown into the grass of a field like 'Dave' did! 
I'd recommend your company to anyone that I can. 
Many thanks 
D and J"

Mr PC - 2011-10-23

First of all my I say thank you for finding the camera, it is very much appreciated. 
As for the flight we both enjoyed the experience very much, the flight was smooth as well as the landing and it was great to see our countryside from a different perspective. 
It was a very pleasant morning and we would like to thank all of you for the experience.

"Hello Tim, every one had a great time this a.m. Just a reminder to include a receipt for the photos when you post them please. 
Thanks, B"

Mr B - 2011-09-02

"Good morning 
Just had to write to you to thank you for a wonderful experience yesterday, it far exceeded my expectations, I could not believe the feeling of safety you got. Tim certainly Knows his stuff and created a tremendous air of confidence. We did ask him if the photo could be the one where my daughter and I were not wearing our sunglasses it would be appreciated. (We were the couple at the back on the extreme left as you look at the basket). It was a truly memorable day. Thank you. 
Mr RE"

Mr RE - 2011-08-30

"I just wanted to say many thanks for all your help in booking the balloon ride for my husband Gary Doughty and his friend John Walker. It took two years to have the ride, but they had such a wonderful time that it was well worth waiting for. We all enjoyed watching the balloon being put together and watching it rise into the sunset. 
Hopefully we will be in contact again some time as I now am keen to experience a balloon ride. 
Thanks again. 
Miss SD"

Miss SD - 2011-08-06

"Just a quick email to thank you and all the team for Friday evenings excellent balloon flight. I would especially like to thank the Land Rover driver who came out in the field to pick my mum and step dad up. Unfortunately my step dad has just completed a course of radiotherapy to treat lung cancer, and the walk across the field turned out to be a little too strenuous for him. 
It was a great flight, and looking at yesterday's weather, we were very lucky to have such brilliant conditions. 
Thanks again 

Mr SD - 2011-07-04

"Dear Tim, just to let you know that AS & DG thoroughly enjoyed their flight the other Monday, both would do it again, Alan says he reckons i would like it!. I hate heights, although I must admit that, as they took off I thought i wish I was in there. We will see. thank you again on their behalf, JS"

Miss JS - 2011-05-24

"Just thought I would drop you a quick email . Mum and Dad made the balloon flight on Saturday evening. The skies cleared and the weather was perfect. They had a wonderful time and really enjoyed the experience. We all enjoyed watching the balloon preparation and then take off, it looked so peaceful. 
Thanks very much for your help and contacting me on Friday as it was well worth sorting it all out at short notice."

Mrs MR - 2011-04-25

I am writing to thank you very much for a superb balloon flight on June 8th. Pilot Tim was terrific (please thank him too) and my husband and I thoroughly enjoyed the experience. It was a joint birthday present for our 60th birthdays from our son and daughter-in-law and we will never forget the enjoyable time we had. The champagne was an extra bonus! Everything was seemlessly organised and we were most impressed when the wonderful photos arrived so quickly the following Saturday. 
We can't thank you enough for making our special birthdays even more special! You will be seeing us again (and our son as well, I think!). 
Kind regards, 
M&M B."

Mr & Mrs B - 2011-04-02

"I took a balloon flight on Sunday 27th March (am). It was my fourth attempt to fly - but was well worth the wait. I thoroughly enjoyed the experience - something I will always remember-and I have a super photo to remind me. 
Thank you."

"Just wanted to say how much I enjoyed Saturday's balloon flight. It was a fantastic experience and one that I hope to do again sometime. 
Thanks very much,

Many thanks,
