This was a present for a landmark birthday for my wife. Unfortunately, we had to wait two years to use the voucher for various personal reasons. I'd llke to thank Nigel for his patience with us and for very kindly extending our voucher on a couple of occasions. We finally got around to going up when the weather was pretty... More

A big thank you to Nigel and his team for making my first ever flight a magical experience.   I  rang on my 50th birthday to arrange a flight and was able to fly 2 days later! The views  of  Bristol city were spectacular. Nigel kept me well informed from the off set and he gave  clear instructions throughout  the flight.... More

My wife and I bought each other birthday presents of a balloon ride and it exceeded our expectations. The flight had 5 other guests who all seemed to enjoy the experience as much as us, Nigel the pilot (and Paul his co) was friendly, informative and reassuring from our intial booking through to the final landing in the field.

My first balloon flight - well worth it. I went along on my own and was made to feel very comfortable and welcome. Very friendly staff and a brilliant Captain Nigel. If you are thinking about booking a special balloon flight, go with First Flight. Magical experience.

After deciding to pop the question in a hot air balloon and quick Google search later, I found First Flight. The personal service provided from the initial call to the actual flight was fantastic, in the week prior to the flight (even when we were unsure if the ring would arrive in time). Nigel was very flexible and kept me... More

Thoroughly enjoyed our first balloon flight. Good communication beforehand let us know when and where to meet and allowed a good degree of flexibility around the weather so that we flew in the best conditions of the weekend. Our flight captain and his team were all very friendly and knowledgeable with many years of flying experience.

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...
