Ballooning over the ancient ruins of Bagan is an absolutely unforgettable experience. I would highly recommend Balloons Over Bagan if you're interested in this experience. The company works closely with the local communities, employing local workers and investing money into the communities that you fly over during your trip. Our pilot was incredibly knowledgeable about the local area, friendly, and funny. From pick up, to pre-flight coffee, through the entire flight, to champagne and breakfast after landing - the whole experience was wonderful.

We loved experience from the very beginning till the last moment. The atmosphere was almost magical and it felt like we were back in time to the old times of colonial period. Meeting sunrise on ballon, seeing all the pagodas from the top and witnessing morning routine of some villages and field workers... Breathtaking... Unforgettable... Highly recommended

Bagan is a magical place to visit. This was my third trip to Myanmar, but my first in a hot air balloon. I have a terrible fear of heights and wasn't sure if I was going to be able to get in that basket, but once in the air you don't even think about it. It was the most serene and peaceful experience, floating along with a truly amazing view of the temples and Irrawaddy river in the background. Our pilot, Elly Kirkman, was wonderful - very informative and a true joy (only woman pilot flying in Bagan). The landing was so smooth that I didn't even realize we most amazing place touched the ground. I was skeptical about doing the ride as it isn't inexpensive but it was given to me as an Xmas present, so I decided to go. I would say if you can afford to take the ride - do it!! It was the highlight of my trip in Southeast Asia.

Dear Traveltheworld2, Thank you for sharing your feedback with us! We are happy to hear you have enjoyed flying with us and you had such a lovely experience. We will share your kind words with Pilot Elly and the rest of the BOB team. Yes, you are correct, Elly is the only female pilot flying for our company, but not the only female pilot flying in Bagan. There are three more Ladies flying for the other companies. We look forward to welcoming you back to enjoy a different experience in Balloons Over Inle and Balloons Over Loikaw. Kind regards, Your Balloons Over Bagan Team.

Words cant describe how fantastic this experience was. From the early morning pick up to return to our hotel we could not fault this trip. Our pilot Steve was great, funny and a wealth of knowledge. We felt so safe and the views were breathtaking. Breakfast was awesome too , would love to do it again !
