My partner whisked me away for a romantic weekend in bruge. Little did I know he had also arranged for a trip with bruge ballooning. The staff arrived at our hotel to collect us and the take off site was a short 20 minute drive away. The staff were very friendly and informative. The weather was great but a bit... More

When weather permits, this is probably one of the best things you can do in Bruges. We were fortunate enough to be going up on a beautiful day with just the right amount of wind and the view was memorable. We were treated to a birds-eye view of Bruges and several other areas adjacent to it. Given the ideal conditions,... More

Made reservations for this specifically on the basis of all of the wonderful Trip Advisor reviews and was very excited for this. We even added a day to our itinerary in Bruges to accommodate the possibility of rescheduling due to inclement weather. Sadly, once we were on site and I called the gentleman the night before as instructed, I was... More

It was AMAZING! If you have a chance to fly in a hot air balloon, don't hesitate! There was absolutely nothing to be afraid of. I felt like I was in the beginning of a movie, flying over a town... You could see everything very clear. Bruges is so beautiful seen from above. I live in Bruges and I still... More

We had a great morning flying over Brugge, and the area north of it. The pilot, Christophe was excellent! Michael made sure we got to our starting point,and was there to meet us when we landed,to help out.. There was so much to see in a relaxed manner. Definitely worth doing and a highlight of my trip.

I thoroughly enjoyed our trip up in the hot air balloon. It is completely worth the cost as it gives you such a unique view of the city and the surrounding landscape. Michael and Christophe were excellent hosts; knowledgeable and very friendly. Go up in a hot air balloon has always been on my bucket list and I'm glad that... More

If you're wondering 'should I or shouldn't I?', stop wondering and just do it! You'll be so glad you did. I've been ballooning before but this was a treat for my daughter's 18th birthday. The real joy for me was the difference in size. My previous experience was in a much larger, commercial balloon, holding 20+ people. This one is... More
