It was my first hot air balloon experience and it was wonderful. The crew was very professional and they coordinated well with their client on the day as they confirm whether the flight is a go or not on the day of the flight. The view I expected after seeing pictures on their website wasn't as magical as I assumed... More

Dear Sir/ Madam, Thank you for the review. Yes we agree that there are much nicer locations and scenery. However we do have restrictions to fly some part of the country. Furthermore, even if we fly a very scenic location, the wind could be against us. We hope to see you again for another adventure from the sky. Thank you. More

I think this is a best way for travelers ( local and Foreign) get adventure experience. I took a ride with one of my friend from Germany. We both very happy about the ride. however this is very expensive for local people and sometime for foreigners too. At least once in your life you should do this ride. Air magic... More

Had visited Sri Lanka in March 2013 a/with friend and his family.All the children being teenagers were adventurous.On research we found Air Magic to be one of the service providers. Capt.Chinthaka was very prompt in answering all our queries and making the required arrangements. We witnessed the balloon being made ready for the flight and were impressed with the professionalism... More

Had my first hot air balloon flight with Air Magic. Wow what a wonderful experience it was. The crew is extremely professional and goes out of their way to make the flight memorable. The Captain is very well experienced and interesting to talk to. If you like adventure this is a must try.

The ride actually takes off from Elpitiya. Elpitiya is a small town easily accessible from Colombo (1 hour) if one takes the southern expressway. Air... More

The booking-office was really flexible, as we had to change both date and place for our ride (due to weather and unfixed travel plan). We just rang them, and they fixed everything according to our travel plans! Payment was easily done in cash on sight. The crew, and especially the pilot, were nice down to earth people, with good language... More

This was out first hot-air ballooning ever with the family (kids ages between 7-15). The pilot was very well-trained and well-experienced. He was also very knowledgable and talkative and we learned a lot about hot-air ballooning. Once you are in the air, depending on the wind and outside temperature, it can get quite hot and uncomfortable (the burners don't help!).... More
