I would highly recommend Nigel & his team if you are considering a balloon flight, very professional and friendly. The flight itself was excellent, flying from Bath to Bristol with some serious views, all topped off with a glass of bubbly! Won't be long before we book our next flight with them :)

There's nothing to be scared of. It is fantastic. I loved every minute from take off to the final landing on the cricket pitch as the bowler bowled his last ball of the evening. Floating high over Bristol with a golden light over the Clifton Suspension Bridge was majestic. I will go again and again. And Nigel is the perfect... More

Our pilot, Nigel, took us over Cheddar Gorge, the Mendip's and Westbury; where we all live.We flew right over the roof top of one of our houses! It was an incredible, unforgetable flight which helped us celebrate one of... More

I treated my wife to a surprise flight for her 50th Birthday. Nigel kept me informed coming up to the weekend of our flight about weather and launch sites etc. He and his crew were very professional from launch to landing. The flight was amazing and would highly recommend First Flight to anyone looking for a unique ballooning experience.

It was well worth the early rise for the amazing morning out we had with Nigel, Gill and First Flight. We felt perfectly safe and were in awe of the smoothness of the entire operation from start to finish. Nigel kept us informed as to all the historical features we were flying over making this a very enlightening journey. One... More

From the beginning to end our experience was flawless. Nigel and the team kept us informed throughout our journey. When we couldn't fly due to bad weather, he was flexible to re-book with. Planning my wedding proposal, he was real easy to talk to. The day couldn't have gone any smoother - and she said 'yes'!! Massive thank you to... More
