Had thel voucher a while but due to Covid we didnt have the chance to book anything. Once these restrictions lifted I decided to pick a date and we got to fly on our first attempt. The conditions were perfect. The ground crew James & Martin were a great asset to the pilot Andy and everything ran like a well oiled machine. It was a fantastic experience made better by the expertise if Andy and the crew. Very knowledgeable and kept everyone informed of what was happening. I would highly recommend choosing Wickers world for your balloon flight as everything runs like clockwork. Great land rover experience back to base too. Breakfast cafe/pub recommendations given to everyone too. We actually followed them to a cafe and jointed Andy and James at the table making the experience even better. 10/10 from start to finish. Thank you.

A fantastic experience from start to finish! The team that run the balloons are friendly, polite and professional which make the experience even more memorable. A hot air balloon ride is definitely something to tick off the bucket list and these guys are the ones to do it with. We bought our vouchers in December 2017 and had to be persistent with regular bookings, we finally flew in June 2021 and it was worth the wait. I cannot recommend Wickers World enough. Thank you to all of the team!

I bought this experience for my mum's 80th birthday in 2019. Due to typical British weather and the COVID lockdown we were unable to fly until today. From start to finish this was an incredible experience. Mum is fairly limited in movement with two replacement knees but with the aid of Andy and his amazing team mum was able to have her trip of a lifetime. The flight lasted about an hour and we were in company of another Balloon which enhanced the experience. The pilot, Andy, gave good commentary throughout the flight and the landing was very gentle and group participation in collapsing and packing the balloon just enhanced the experience. I honestly thought we had lost the trip due to COVID restrictions but Wickers World were good to their word and reinvited us once the restrictions were lifted. I cannot praise them highly enough and will be booking another trip soon.

Thoroughly recommend this very pleasant and professional business. Despite many Covid related delays, their communication and flexibility has been excellent, and the final result was breathtaking! A wonderfully quiet and gentle way to peruse your surroundings from a birds eye perspective. Dress for the weather on the ground is the advice and my walking shoes or boots were handy, despite the pleasant early morning, given the wet grass. Ours was a present which made a great gift- it is suitable for anyone, alone or in a group, there is plenty to see and do.
