If you get the chance to do this in Bagan, do it!! An early start is worth it for a very well - run, organised and professional service. It's a fascinating and beautiful experience to see Bagan from the air, helped by lovely pilots and crew. Everything from the arrival to the launch site, tea, the balloon ride and champagne... More

This establishment doesn’t need my good words because after you’ve read all their glowing reviews it’s pretty clear that they’re brilliant. You also don’t need me to do tell you how incredible the ballon ride over Bagan is because I’m sure you’ve seen the photos (not that they do justice) and that’s why you’re here. What you do need to... More

This was indeed a terrific experience. As noted, the balloon ride is quite pricey, but you won't be disappointed--assuming the weather is good. For us, the weather was perfect. It is the only way to get a true perspective on the scope and scale of Bagan. Our pictures were awesome, supplemented by the finger drive sold by Balloons over Bagan... More

Unbelievable, amazing, fantastic! Just great! We booked the premium tour and did not regret this in any second. Pick up at the hotel, arrived on the field, directly offered coffee and tea. Very good and clear instructions by the team about the flight and the preparations. In total very friendly guide/pilot and team! The flight itself was awesome. No question:... More

A truly amazing experience that I would recommend to do in Bagan, worth the $$$ charge. I had a perfect weather with clear sky and good temperature (done it on November 22, 2015). You will need to wear a sweater for the time before the flight, but during the flight you will get the warm air from the balloon fire... More

This was one of the most beautiful experiences of our life. It was our first balloon ride ever, and it was much nicer than we had dreamed about. It feels like floating and you are so close to everything. It is very calm and just an unforgettable experience. Plus the scenery of Bagan with the Pagodas and temples is simply... More

The Balloons over Bagan was definitely a highlight of my trip. A great morning with fab views. Lovely with all the other balloons around you. So much work into it and all the Burmese guys on the ground work so hard preparing everything and collecting you once you land. Very well organised company. After balloon trip celebration with some champagne.... More
