I bought this voucher for me and my partner as a birthday gift for him. I bought it back in September 2012 and after many attempts to get a perfect day for flying we finally got one! Even though it felt like a bit of a wait I can 100% say it was extremely worth waiting for. I've spoken to... More

To anyone wondering which hot-air balloon company to fly with, I can whole-heartedly recommend Bailey Balloons. From the beginning to end of this wonderful flight over Bristol everyone involved, from the owner of the company to the drivers of the Landrovers, were a delight to be around. They made my birthday flight one of life's truly fun and memorable experiences.... More

I've just returned from an excellent flight with bailey balloons on a morning flight above Bristol. When we arrived we were all greeted by the friendly crew who encouraged us to help set up the balloon. It was amazing to see how they were inflated with Clive our pilot happy to answer any questions we had. When we were up... More

I did a balloon flight from Bath with my boyfriend and it was absolutely amazing!! The views of Bath as we went up from the park were breathtaking, the photos just don't do it justice!! We could even see the Severn bridges and the whit horse at Westbury in the distance! It was great, as we got lower, to see... More

Just came back from a birthday treat. It was one of the best experiences I had the pleasure in participating in. Clive & the crew were very accommodating although we were unable to reach great heights it was still a fantastic & exciting experience. Champagne was a great bonus too.

First time for our family of 5. We chose an exclusive trip as it was a 50th Birthday present. Flew out from Ashton Court and headed south into the mendips. Up in the air for about an hour but the whole preparation and packing up meant that you should allow 3-4 hours total. Evening flight with sunset views - we... More

Such an incredible experience!! For those who think it might be scary, I am the most risk adverse person going and I was not at all worried at any point during the experience. The crew were outstanding! My husband and I had talked about doing this for years and our wedding anniversary was coming up so it was a great... More

Had the good fortune of being piloted by Clive and the team last Saturday. A truly unforgettable experience which surpassed my expectations of the last 18 years watching balloons going overhead. If you've ever been tempted or thought "I wonder what it's like up there" it's slightly better than it looks (always thought it looked amazing). Can't emphasise enough that... More
