Wow, just wow! How can I sum up the experience using only words? Whatever I say here will not be nearly good enough to sum up one of the most thrilling, tranquill, exciting, breath taking days I have ever had. Everyone involved from our Skilled pilot Michael to the superb ground crew made the day that bit more special. The people I flew with were of all ages and we all bonded on the flight....taking in the stunning views. Michael certainly knew his stuff too, not just on the expected chat about height & wind speed etc., but also on the scenery & landscapes. I live local to the launch site and from a balloon, looking down, I lost my bearings! Thanks to Michael pointing out various landmarks etc., he made the experience even more special. By the end of the flight we (The passengers) were invited to assist packing the deflated balloon away. We all had a great laugh in some farmers field, fighting to get the 'Bubbles' out of the huge balloon! Back at the launch site we were given a certicicate to mark the day and treated to Champers, Spitfire Ale & Orange juice, whereby everyone was chatting away and still on a high....from being up high! This is one of those things you have to do before you die, and when you come to take the plunge & go for it......I can't speak for other balloon companies but I can speak for KentBallooning......I would very highly recommend them all day long.......they're beyond excellent! Thank you, thank you, thank you all for the experience of a life time. -Kevin Traylor.

Wow, thank you for such a glowing review! Michael is very pleased that he made such a difference to not only the Piloting of the flight but also your understanding and knowledge of the area. Being up there, really helps give a perspective of the lay of the land and the local area.
I am so pleased that you had such a great flight and we look forward to seeing you in the skies of Kent again soon!
