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

I booked this online in advance and it was easy to do. When I checked in for the evening I had booked the weather wasn't suitable, so the flight was postponed to the following evening. I had misgivings about it as I'm not keen on heights, but the info on the website which explained why you don't suffer with vertigo... More

Woke up really early to get ready for a 6am pick up. The ride allows you to be part of the whole hot air balloon experience, from getting the balloon and the basket off the cart to setting it up, enjoying the ride up in the air and then a quick activity to fold the balloon back into the bag!...

Around two hours - in the air - on a perfect day with high visibility. Total time over 3 hours. Friendly reassuring crew. Explained step by step. Once up the view was spectacular. The city, the countryside, the pre-sunset. Amazing. Must see bruges this way.

It might take a few days for the weather to be just right, but it will be an amazing experience. Christophe is a great pilot, a fun conversationalist and knowledgeable world traveler. The countryside around Bruges is fantastic and the champagne at the end was a perfect way to cap of a wonderful experience.

Went for the ride a few days ago along with the wife and four other tourists. The balloon traveled quicker that normal we were told so we ended up further out in the countryside with was well worth seeing on its own. It was obvious that safety was paramount and so a few landing attempts were aborted with the pilot... More

Christophe was a great pilot and host. Perfect takeoff, amazing view of Bruges and the surrounding countryside, and a gentle landing. Couldn't have asked for a better experience.

Seeing Bruges from a balloon is incomparable. Ballooning with a guide who loves the job is more than one can ask. You'll get both with Bruges Ballooning! My wife and I spent a whole week in Bruges. This was the height (no pun intended!) of our vacation. Ballooning provides a unique perspective from above, but also a connection with all... More

Flying over Bruges and seeing the historical town from above gives a whole different outlook of the city. You see the beauty and quaiintness of the city, far better than walking the streets. Christophe, our pilot, is very professional and concerned about giving his passengers a safe and enjoyable adventure. I had previously gone up with him in Myanmar and... More

This was one of the best experiences and the greatest way to look down on Bruges and the beautiful historic buildings. We were extremely lucky to go up one early evening, as the weather was particularly cold and windy the few days we were in Bruges. It was a truly wonderful experience made or the more enjoyable by the pilot... More
