ABSOLUTELY SHOCKING - AVOID BATH BALLOONS AT ALL COSTS. We had a good flight however after leaving once the flight was over, me and my girlfriend were called back to the landing site. We explained that we needed to leave to catch a train back to London and we were greeted with shouting from our captain. He absolutely lost his mind and was shouting that we needed to come and pack up the balloon. Although this already seems like a slightly ridiculous request when paying a large amount of money for a 'champagne experience' with no mention of having to help pack up the balloon, the shocking thing was that he exploded and was screaming at us that we weren't allowed to leave. My girlfriend and I were left shocked and shaken by this totally inappropriate and aggressive behaviour and our experience of going in a balloon was tarnished by this almost unbelievable incident. The captain of our flight (Mike Evans) acted totally inappropriately and it is certainly not reasonable for him to continue working in this role if he cannot even control his anger. We both felt quite threatened as he seemed to suddenly explode into a fit of rage. It is a shame that the experience was so badly influenced by this shocking experience as the flight itself was great and the rest of the team seemed friendly and helpful.

What a team! Superb organisation and an event that we'll remember for a very long time. The pilot's knowledge was fascinating and the support crew superb. The fact we did so much before most people had even woken up on a Saturday morning was very special ... and after all that, Champagne to celebrate the flight !

Weather was perfect and the flight was smooth and beautiful! I honestly couldn't ask for a better day to do it on as it was a gift to my girlfriend! I Would have left an excellent review had I known that you were required to help inflate ( set up) and deflate the balloon once you land (in a random farm/field) before booking so I would have been more prepared! So take that into consideration! Our particular trip had a few elderly people who weren't as able to physically help out with the deflation process leaving more work for the younger people like myself to do the heavy lifting, which isn't exactly what I signed up for! On my hands and knees in a field deflating a hot air balloon at 9pm with a pair of curious cows looking at us isn't my idea of romantic. I't's almost as if you brought a plane ticket and they tell you " By the way you have to chip in to build the plane!" Fortunately enough every was in relatively good spirits but unfortunately that did take away from the whole experience considering it wasn't cheap!

Very well organised and it is clear safely is the number one priority which is very reassuring. Being involved in the inflation and packing the equipment away at the end just adds to the experience. Mike, our pilot is a credit to the company. Thank you and we will definitely book again.

Wonderful that you had a 'Fantastic Time' glad you enjoyed the hands-on part of the experience, making it so much more than 'just a ride', as you say safety is our paramount consideration. With best wishes from Pilot Mike, the crew and all at Bath Balloons.
