Launched in 1999, the family run Balloons over Bagan provides awe-inspiring flights over the ancient temples of Bagan. From our intimate Premium Service 8 passenger balloons with a maximum of 2 people in each compartment for that special occasion, to our 16 passenger balloons ideal for families or larger groups with only 4 in each compartment, all our balloons provide a spacious platform for unrivaled views. We are the only company in the industry with full time, on-site, maintenance engineers and inspectors, reflected in our 15 year safety record, free of accidents or incidents.

What can I say - this is a must do! Very professionally run, with safety first. The down side is you need to get up early, but it is rewarding. Our flight was just under an hour long and we flew over Old Bagan with all the stupas, temples, farms and river below. They also served a light breakfast with... More

We booked on the first morning but was cancelled due to bad weather, whilst we were getting our refunds at the office as they were fully booked for the next couple of days a chief pilot or balloon inspector overheard us asking if there was any way we could rebook, they happened to have a bigger basket which had just...

Balloons over Bagan was really a once in a lifetime experience. As you start in early morning, breakfast is served right there with some Coffee or Tea. The staff is awesome and funny. Once in the Balloon you can enjoy Bagan high up in the sky which, if you didn't take a guess already is AMAZING. After the tour is... More

If Bagan is spectacular and amazing, having the chance to see the temples from the sky is. Breathtaking.

I want to leave an account of my own experience here for anyone who in concerned by the 1 star reviews concerning cancellations. My balloon flight was cancelled, and while my heart is broken that I wasn't able to experience it, I still want to give Balloons Over Bagan 5 stars for the way they conducted themselves professionally. From the... More

After reading the reviews of the various ballon companies I opted for Balloons over Bagan. The balloon incident in Egypt was on my mind. I was not disappointed. The pilot was very professional, knowledgable and had a huge amount of experience, most of it in much more challenging ballooning regions (Alps etc). The safety briefing was first class and the...

Should have written this review much sooner. We boarded our balloon at sunrise for the 45-60 minute ride on the balloon. There are two sizes of balloons. One for 16 persons and the other for 8. Pay the extra for 8. Well worth it. Such a view across the Bagan plain with a perhaps 1000 temples of all sizes and... More

It was truly a fantastic experience. It is a bit dear if you are on a budget but it is worth it. Amazing view over Bagan which made the 4am start worthwhile.

An intense and new experience as w'd never ballooned before. But of all the places in the world to make a start this had to be the ultimate. Its alms like I don want to write too much to spoil the surprise but I feel certain anyone who opts togo will not be disappointed. A not to be missed opportunity... More

This was an unforgettable experience - the views from the balloon were absolutely stunning; the staff all extremely professional, knowledgeable and great fun; and the champagne on landing a really lovely touch to round off the trip! Thanks so much to the whole team for a wonderful morning - it was the highlight of our time in Myanmar.
