I booked a trip as a treat for my boyfriend and I and I'm not going to lie- I was utterly terrified. From the moment we got there the staff were friendly and jokey and really help put me at ease! We flew over the Chew Valley and our pilot Clive kept us entertained with stories, jokes and commentary the... More

We flew from Victoria Park in Bath this morning after a couple of cancellations and had an amazing flight. Both a bit nervous but didn't need to be, as soon as you lift off Clive our pilot was filling us with interesting facts and stories, and the views were amazing. All the crew were so friendly from the minute we... More

We had a great time with Bailey Balloons. The flight was wonderful and the pilot, as well as the rest of the team, was friendly and approachable. We appreciated being able to have photos following the landing and the whole trip was very relaxed and thoroughly enjoyable. Thank you!

We had a wonderful time with this company; they are fun and great to be with. Above all, they are safe and reassuring even if you are afraid of heights. We cannot praise them enough as the trip was brilliantly organised and we had a great commentary from the pilot. The office staff when we booked, were polite, friendly and... More

We enjoyed an amazing experience with Bailey Balloons starting from Royal Victoria Park. From the minute we arrived at the park, all of the crew were really welcoming and gave a brief talk on what to expect from the flight. Everyone was then able to get involved with getting the balloon ready before heading up over Royal Victoria Park. The... More

Our flight was booked as an anniversary gift in July 2013. Needless to say it rained ( as it did on our wedding day!) and the balloon flight was cacancelled. Desperately tried to rebook over the next 11 months....being constantly plagued by poor weather. Luckily our flight on 21st June was perfect. A lovely sunny day over Bath with spectacular... More

The first thing you want in a balloon flight is a crew you can trust, and I don't think you could do better than Bailey Balloons. Then the right people help everyone to relax and enjoy a special experience together, and with 16 passengers this matters - our crew were briliant. We had a wonderful time in the company of... More

An amazing company and amazing experience. I booked a balloon flight for my Father-in-law's 65 and ending up going along too as he didn't want to go on his own. I would recommend every aspect of Bailey Balloons. The admin team were great, it was easy to book flights and there are so many flights it was easy to get... More
