First time to see the sunrise in the balloon, a little bit fear at the beginning balloon take off, no matter what, all worth it. The staff is nice, send the driver to pick us up from the hotel in the morning and send back, the breakfast is good the whole experience is amazing

The early morning balloon ride itself provided a nice view and it was well organised. The scenery is pleasant to watch, but it does not change much during the one hour flight over the flat area of land east of Chiang Mai. What I did not like was the complete inflexibility on the pricing. When paying such a premium price, I would expect a better and more personal level of customer service. What happened? There was an offer in the Bangkok post with a package of an overnight stay at the hotel where the balloons take off from, including breakfast and of course the balloon ride. All for THB 8000. We already had accomodation elsewhere in Chiang Mai, which included breakfast, so we only needed the balloon ride, which I expected to cost less than the package. Unfortunately, neither calling nor writing did any good. It was a simple matter of: "Take it, or leave it", which meant we had to pay the regular price of THB 8800 per person, just for the balloon ride. I did not want to risk loosing the reservation by making a booking for the complete package and then only showing up the next morning for the balloon ride, so I paid. - But I'm reluctant to recommend this company under these circumstances.

Made booking online and paid after confirmation. Email communication was quick and efficient. Weather forecast seemed to be horrid on booked day, but was able to move booking a day ealier, again by email. Minibus arrived at 5:15am and picked up another passenger and set off for balloon departure point. Coffee or tea was available. Watching the balloons being inflated was amazing. Andre, the pilot, wasn't happy with something so reset the whole thing. After reinflation we boarded (4 of us) and with a long blast of heat we ascended. Andre then told us that he had built 2 of the balloons being used. This is what he does now after 'retiring'. The views are stunning as tge world drifts silently below. The only noise (and heat) comes from the burners. On landing, you are returned to the depart point by minibus and a champagne reception. After breakfast you return back home on the minibus you arrived on. Fantastic experience. Thanks Andre.

It has always been a dream of mine to take a balloon ride over a beautiful city. This opportunity in Chiang Mai was unlike another. It was easy to book and I loved that there was a pick up and drop off option as you do get up very early in the morning. When you arrive they offer you coffee and you watch your balloon inflate. Then you do an incredible ride and see the landscape of Chiang Mai. Our instructor was informative and so very friendly. The ride is smooth and not scary. You can wave to all the locals and our instructor would circle the balloon so we could see all sides of the landscape. He even brought his go pro and too photos for us :) When we landed it was smooth, and easy. The ride back to the resort for champagne and breakfast. It was a day to remember. The only suggestion I would have for this company is that there should be a limit of WAITING time when picking others up. I was ready at my 5;45 am call, when we picked up the second person we waited 30 minutes and still they did not show. I was late to arrival for the balloon inflation and coffee experience because this person did not show. I think they could better the situation by indicating that if you are not ready within the 15 minutes of pick up....they will not wait. I would have loved to not feel stressed and rushed to the location because I did pay a lot of money for the experience!
