I did my share of hot air ballooning in several countries, but this one is the least impressive. Before I made the reservation, I was allready aware that the flight wouldn't be over the Angkor complex, but because I had very good experiences with flights over not very interesting landscapes before, I still wanted to fly. But it seems that... More

I don't know why this company is still working in Siem Reap as many of their flights are a failure ... You hit the trees and they don't know how to land carefully ... I think it is very dangerous.

First thing to remember is a hot air balloon has no steering - you go where the wind takes you, and that's the beauty of it. But if you think you're guaranteed to fly over certain temples, don't hold your breath. Don't let it stop you from taking this fantastic balloon ride though. What a uniquely fabulous way to see...

The ride out was different as a group of strangers headed eastwards in a bus. The guide spoke on the telephone as we pulled into a lay-by (which doesn't mean a lot on Cambodian roads) then a man on a motorcycle passed us and flashing his lights we bounced back on the road to follow him further along different tracks...

I must say it was a fantastic experience. The take-off was a community effort of children helping and enjoying us throw candy to them as we got lift. I was quite disappointed however when we did not fly near to Angkor Wat, we did however fly over another temple and see the beginnings of a sunset, not THE sunset. 45... More

I went in this tour directly going on a walking tour of the temples. It was a great experience more so than the temples was seeing the children throwing candy for them. I did see one temple and that was enough for me

I had never been on a hot air balloon ride before and wanted to try it out. A friend and I decided Cambodia would be a good time to try it out. We took the sun set tour and was not disappointed. We arrived to see them setting the balloon up. There were a lot of locals (mostly kids) watching... More

Amazing views and the perfect way to see the sun rise in Siem Reap. Doesn't fly over Angkor Wat which we knew but judging by other reviews some people had unrealistic expectations. I've been ballooning several times in different corners of the world and this one was really amazing! Could have done better and given a safety briefing at the... More

We stood around for nearly an hour while the prepared the balloon. By then the sun was well and truly up. The flight lasted about 20 minutes before we literally crashed into the gardens of a small village. We were dragged over the village's garden and through fences damaging their livelihood. Most alarming was there was no safety briefing. The... More
