Hi - Thanks for your review Thanks for mentioning Ian - our ground crew - they all like getting a mention on Trip Advisor. Having excellent ground crew means that I can get on with the job of flying the balloon, knowing that everything else is taken care of. The wind data that they radio back to me in the basket, means that we can aim for specific targets and try to land in places that we know. This means that more often than not, the ground crew are there as we touch down which makes the passenger experience flow seemlessly. More often than not, this sort of detail goes un-noticed, which means they're doing a great job! Thanks for coming along and choosing Kent Ballooning to fly with. We're stoked that you had a great time! Regards, Michael

I contacted Kent Ballooning a few months ago to organise a flight to propose to my partner. Louisa at Kent Ballooning was so incredibly helpful and supportive at helping decide what type of flight would be best based on our specific situation. I felt very valued and that I was given all the time I needed. In the end I opted for a sunrise VIP flight. In between booking and the actual day the communication was really comprehensive, taking into consideration the ever changing situation with the virus. I had booked a flight a couple of months later (my choice - sooner flights were available) and when the day came around unfortunately the weather had taken an unexpected turn for the worse so we had to postpone. Louisa was helpful beyond words as getting us booked into another date very shortly afterwards, and she was very careful not to spoil the surprise for my partner. The flight on the actual day was absolutely amazing. Michael our pilot really took his time to explain everything we wanted to know, and we both felt very safe and enjoyed the whole experience. Face masks were worn by all 3 of us during the whole flight, but this really didn't take anything away from the experience, and helped us to feel safer as we were all in a close vicinity of one another. After the flight we received our video really quickly, and it is going to make a great memory in the years to come. Needless to say I got a yes on the day! If you are looking to take a flight as part of a group, or you wanted to indulge in one of their VIP flights then I honestly could not recommend Kent Ballooning more. I did a lot of research before choosing them myself and I am very glad I did

Hi Tim CONGRATULATIONS again! It was so nice to be a (tiny) part of your proposal. It was great to meet you both and we wish you all the best for the future. Thanks for taking the time to review us, we really do appreciate it and we're glad that you enjoyed your flight. It was a fun flight, with great visibility and a fun landing. I'm not sure seeing everyone in their pyjamas was the best sight we had on the flight!!! The fact that you got a 'Yes' means that I get to keep my 100% record for proposals! Good luck with your wedding plans! Regards Michael

Hi! Thanks for taking the time to review us. It's an early start, but worth it for the early morning mist, the peace and quiet, and of course the sunrise. If I had to choose I'd suggest going for a morning flight... It feels like you've got the whole world to yourself and you can see everyone else gradually coming to life as the noise from the roads starts to pick up and you see people walk their dogs. The world looks different from a balloon! Thanks for choosing to fly with Kent Ballooning Regards Michael

lucky enough to fly on a day with amazing visibility. Able to see the coast of France and outskirts of London all from the balloon! Lovely pilot and very friendly staff.

Hi jspaul90 Thanks for taking the time to review your flight. It was indeed an exceptional evening to go flying with visibility as good as it gets. With views all around the county and way beyond it was a truly memorable flight. We're glad that you enjoyed it - thanks for coming along! Regards Michael

Had superb evening flight with Kent Ballooning. Everything was perfect, a treat from start to finish. It was our first flight and certainly won't be our last. Can't praise the team highly enough for their professionalism despite the obvious covid restrictions.

Hi James Thanks for taking the time to review your experience with Kent Ballooning. It was great to meet you having watched some of your Gigglepin videos - no doubt I'll be in touch soon to buy something! It was a fun flight and great to fly from so close to the coast. Gentle winds greeted us on the surface as we made our approach and a soft touchdown rounded everything off. Perfect! Good luck with the rest of your season and thanks for coming along. Kind Regards Michael
