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.

We met at Ashton Court and had great fun helping get the balloon set up, learning about the balloon and... More

It was interesting to help inflate and pack away the balloon and the champagne was the... More

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
