Bailey Balloons offer Champagne Hot Air Balloon Flights and have an excellent reputation. They have launch sites in Bristol, Bath & South Wales with other launch sites on request- and they can come to you! Balloon rides are available at short notice and as gift vouchers. Clive Bailey, Director and Chief Pilot has just received an award for ballooning from HRH Duke of Windsor. The whole experience lasts 3-4 hours with helping to set up the balloon if you wish, a pilot's briefing and flying for about an hour with chilled champagne on landing and a flight certificate to take home with you. In-flight photos are available.Bailey Balloons is a well established family run company. They also do a lot of film work with the BBC, ITV and Channel 4 to name but a few. Clive Bailey flew Ant & Dec for the opening sequence to Britain's Got Talent and Jamie Oliver as well as for the BBC One Show.

Perfect day for an unforgettable experience. Pilot and team were informative & helpful. Flight lasted one and a quarter hours, and nice touch with champagne at end of flight. Would definitely recommend to anyone thinking of booking a flight.

I love hot air balloons and was delighted to be given a voucher for my birthday. The company are excellent and the flight itself was just spectacular. The pilot and crew were brilliant - very friendly and jovial and also clearly very capable, as the take off was a little challenging in slightly gusty winds, but we felt completely at... More

A 'special' birthday present from my brothers we flew with Bailey Balloons over Bath and it was just fantastic. The crew were friendly, knowledgeable and chatty. We got involved in the before and after flight chores - earning our glass of bubbly at the end. The safety issues were well managed and explained - we felt totally secure. The time... More

Clive showed from the outset that he was not only an experienced pilot, but he put us totally at ease and commanded a friendly and entertaining staff! We felt totally relaxed from the beginning and we were able to enjoy a magical journey ending in a civilized glass of bubbly. A wonderful 60th birthday present; thank you! We would highly... More

Right from the start everyone was involved with the preparations for the flight and again afterwards when it came to the packing away after landing. The whole Bailey team were great... More

I bought a flight for my partners 50th and he's hard to please so you never know! But it was fantastic. The people were really friendly, the pilot was friendly, knowledgable and very competent and I can't recommend them enough. The experience was stunning and I'd love to do it again sometime. If you have the chance, do it!

Had a great time on this trip and would completely recommend this to anyone who has ever wanted to do it! The pilot was very experienced and the rest of the staff were lovely. Well worth the early morning start. Cannot say enough about how worthwhile this is!!
