What an amazing experience with Dom and his crew. You really can see why he`s a world champion! Such a great flight and perfect landing. From the moment you arrive a member of Dom's team meet you and walk you to the field where you can get involved unpacking the balloon and inflating it for the flight. From there you hop into the basket and off you go. Very chilled and calm. We wasn't sure what to wear and how cold it would be in the basket but the burners certainly keep you warm. Great fun helping pack the balloon away at the end followed by a drink and a chat before being transferred back to the cars. We would definitely recommend taking a flight with Dom and his team.

It took a while to organise due to bad weather cancellations but it was worth the wait. Very well organised hands on experience. We went to the north of Shrewsbury and ended up landing near English Franklin. A truly amazing experience.

We finally were able to fly after 6 attempts (the previous 5 were cancelled due to poor weather) but it was worth the wait. The pilot and her crew were friendly and added to the experience. We had a fantastic time flying over Shropshire and would definitely love to do it again sometime.
