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

This was an amazing experience. It was easy to organise and even when weather meant our morning flight was cancelled we were contacted and it was easily rearranged. The team was amazing, friendly, knowledgeable and made you feel safe. The views were amazing. We had champagne and juice after with few laughs. This is a must do in Bruce, a... 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

Martin picked us up from our hotel and was very happy and professional. We traveled about 15 minutes to the balloon location - a small horse farm outside of Bruges -... More

I've never been in a hot air balloon but being from Bruges I didn't think I would be surprised by a view from above. I was wrong. It is a great experience for everybody! First there's the hot air balloon experience. This is perfectly as described and the enthousiasm of the pilot really catches on. It's fun to help set... More
