What a better place to take my first hot air balloon ride - over the very historic and picturesque Bruges. I must admit I was apprehensive but amazingly once we were up in the air, the nervousness went and I just thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The views were spectacular and you saw much more than you'd ever see any other... More

Great guide, amazing experience (only drawback was the heat from the flames!!) flying over the old town square and market square was awesome! Loved every minute. Driver picked us up and dropped us off at our hotel. My teenaged son got to assist with set-up- so cool! Do not forget a good camera as I got some great shots! This... More

OK, I admit it, I was TERRIFIED of going in a hot air balloon. Like, shaking and wanted to cry. Then we took off and...well, I was speechless! This was without a doubt one of the most incredible experiences of my life, and I really just can't wait to do it again. Christophe and his entire crew were absolutely top... More

Fantastic views, great pilot, interesting fligft and wonderful after flight "party") It was absolutely amazing, unforgettable experience from start to finish. We travelled around for about 30 minutes to find a good take off point and got to help set the balloon up before taking off. The pilot is gorgeous, really experienced and knowledgeable. Thank you!!!

Our balloon flight over Bruges was the highlight of our trip. After being picked up at our B&B, we were delivered promptly and courteously to a field, where we watched the balloon being inflated and prepped for flight. We then went on an amazing hour-long trip directly over the city of Bruge. The guide was really great -- we flew... More
