We went on our first balloon flight today with our three children ages 14, 12 and 7. Nigel and his team gave us an exceptional experience with evident expertise and a genuine passion for what they do. Two balloons took flight some time after us but both these groups landed and returned to our meeting point before us. Nigel extended... More

5.30am and having been driven by the other half into a field on the outskirts of Bath, I was surprised with the vision of a small basket and a deflated balloon being unravelled by Nigel and his team. Excitement taking hold we were given the chance to help inflate the balloon and together clambered in for the most memorable ride... More

My wife and I went on a trip in the smaller sport balloon. Great views over Bristol, really friendly and professional piloting from Nigel, and champagne when we landed! A really fantastic trip; if you're in Bristol you absolutely must go on a hot air balloon ride with First Flight!

My husband booked the flight as a Christmas present and we were lucky enough to be able to go up in the smaller balloon with Nigel and his partner a few weeks ago. The whole evening was amazing from start to finish, the weather was beautiful and the views of Bristol indescribable. It was exciting helping to set up on... More

I felt it safe hands throughout, although the take off was a little scary, once up there the views were amazing and such... More
