Excellent evening flight over Bruges. Christoph is a friendly, very competent pilot with a good sense of humor. The trip was well organized. It is a fascinating experience to see the town and the surroundings out from the air. We did enjoy it very much.

I just spend 10 days traveling in Europe, and this was hands down the best experience we had! Christoff was a superb pilot, and he always had our safety in mind. He was trying to land, but the fields were wet, and he would not land until he found us somewhere safe to do it. We finally found the a... More

I took my 79-year-old mom on her very first balloon ride, and I'm so glad it was with this company. Christoph is an excellent pilot who has flown all over the world and has over 20 years of experience. He made sure the weather conditions were right for a smooth take off and landing. If the weather isn't perfect, you... More

Took the morning flight, and even if I saw a balloon festival previously, nothing, really nothing compares to flying in one, there are no words to describe the experience, lift off is easy, smooth and quiet, within a few seconds you are up there, no hassle, or noise, a truly amazing feeling. On top of all, espectacular views of Bruge... More

A fantastic experience from start to finish. Easy to book. Excellent communication before the experience. The ballooning itself was brilliant. We had stunning views over Bruges and what seemed to be the whole of Belgium. We had champagne and pasties at the end to round off a perfect morning. Our daughter who's only seven loved it.

The MOST AMAZING, unforgettable experience! My husband and I and our 2 boys (ages 9 and 11) went on the early morning flight. Honestly, I was a bit nervous not being a fan of heights. The only hot air balloon I've ever seen is in cartoons! Lift off was so gentle and quiet and it is so amazing to feel... More

Have you ever dreamed of flying, or floating in the air letting yourself go where the peaceful wind and the skilful hands of your Pilot pushes the giant floating balloon ? Maybe I'm not wrong if I say that Christophe's job is one of the most both exiting and pleasant at a time, he led us to watch the old... More
