This is something I and my partner have always wanted to do so I bought the flight for us both as a birthday surprise for him. Slightly more expensive than a few local competitors but it was worth it to have fewer people sharing the basket and a more personal, friendly and informative service. I was expecting to feel nervous... More

Going on a balloon flight has always been an ambition for my youngest daughter so when I saw the First Flight balloon team collecting together their equipment in a field one day, surrounded by lots of folks with smiling faces, I decided to buy tickets for both of my daughters. Making the booking was simple and the tickets arrived within... More

Excellent pre-flight communication and organisation, sensible health and safety advice, courtesy to local farmers and lots of attention to detail.. and a fantastic flight with plenty of info and all questions answered. A glorious September evening was the icing on the cake. Transport was also provided back to the launch site. Many thanks to Nigel and the team for a... More

I booked a special flight over Bath for myself and my girlfriend with the plan to ask her to marry me, as you can imagine this was a very risky approach to pop the big question due to the weather etc but Nigel's flexibility and understanding of the importance of our trip really helped me feel as relaxed as possible...

Thank you to Nigel and all the team for making our flight such a treat today. The oldest in our party was 75 and the youngest was 6 years old! Huge fun for everyone. I agree with the other reviews wholeheartedly. Excellent customer service, easy to book and a breath-taking trip with a wonderfully smooth and elegant landing.

What can I say? My girlfriend bought me this to celebrate my 50th birthday, knowing that it was something I really wanted to do. The service was excellent - easy to book and organise - the only downside being the early start!! However, it was all worth it in the end - great fun helping to set up and inflate... More

I bought flights as a birthday present for my partner who had never been ballooning before. Having previously flown with First Flight I knew we would be in safe hands with Nigel and his team who were friendly and professional throughout our whole ballooning experience. All the passengers were encouraged to help inflate the balloon and Nigel ensured we remained... More

What a fantastic experience. The trip was organised to celebrate the significant birthdays of two Bristolians. Booking and pre flight instructions were clear and we were updated with weather conditions in the week before the flight, and the day before. We met at Ashton Court and had great fun helping get the balloon set up, learning about the balloon and... More

An excellent experience, smooth and silent what a way to see Bristol. Friendly efficient staff. Nigel is obviously a very experience pilot and kept us fully informed as to what was going on throughout the flight, calming the fears of the most nervous passenger. It was interesting to help inflate and pack away the balloon and the champagne was the... More
