Christophe and his partner made our hot-air balloon ride one experience that will be hard to forget! It starts with them picking us up at our hostel, taking us to the starting point, making us part of the set up of the balloon, taking us smoothly into the air for a great one-hour or so ride, then a perfect landing...

Christophe looked after the 10 of us very well and was friendly... More

We had a wonderful experience with Bruges Ballooning. Christophe was a really friendly guy and that made the trip fun and relaxing. We were booked for a morning flight but the weather wasn't right so we went on the evening flight. It was fun to help set up the balloon and also help pack up. Flying over the town was... More

I booked online to determine a date and time. This is subject to weather conditions and Christophe was in contact with us to confirm. We arrived and were surprised at the size of the balloon. Everybody helped to get it up and running before we 'boarded'. We traveled across the Belgian countryside en route to Bruges. Many castles were visible... More
