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

Spend your money smarter! Book the ballooning it was so GREAT! It's little chilly when goes up (of course) if the weather allows you to be up! That's awesome, awesome, awesome!!!!!!!! Don't think it's expensive. It's worth it or more. 꼭 해봐야 합니다.

Two morning flights were cancelled because of weather, but we finally got to fly in the afternoon of the second day. We were only three in a basket that would hold six, so we had plenty of room. The other two helped get the balloon ready while I played official photographer. In the air it was so quiet. We sailed... More

Was booked for 11th April but they knew beforehand the weather wouldn't be good so took me up the night before - what a wonderful experience. It was so calm and peaceful with people coming out to wave and call to us. The Pilot and staff were very friendly and explained exactly what we needed to do with safety being... More

Most wonderful experience of Bruges. We booked early morning flight. Crew pick us from our hotel when Sun was about to wake up. What we experience after that is preparing balloon for flying .. flying over awesome and colorful and fairy tale Brgues (when sun was spreading shine over city) and in the end most funny landing of my life....

What a great company! So friendly! Took my mom and my two kids. We took a train in from Brussels to Gant where the weather was best that day. They met us at the station and drove us to the location. Balloon ride was just so relaxing and calm. Landing was fun and unique as the wind tipped us to... More

We flew this morning and had an absolutely incredible experience. We were picked up at the hotel by our pilot and crew, and after a very short drive we were ready to go. The views of the city were simply amazing and the flight couldn't have been more comfortable. After an easy landing in a field some 10 miles away,... More
