I had the most fantastic balloon pilot named Graham. He was a little grumpy in the morning and gruff but woke up with the sun. He skillfully maneuvered the balloon so that we got... read more

I had the most fantastic balloon pilot named Graham. He was a little grumpy in the morning and gruff but woke up with the sun. He skillfully maneuvered the balloon so that we got one of the best views of the sun rise, as well as went down low enough to pass over the fields and temple. I think Graham... More

To our pilot Dan and the team at Balloons over Bagan, a huge thank you for a truly amazing experience (and this is from someone who truly has a fear of heights!). From the moment we were picked up from our hotel to when we returned after our amazing flight experience, we enjoyed every minute. Dan, we appreciated your passion... More

What a spectacular adventure! We were a little anxious about our flight but soon got over our anxiety as we saw how precise and professional the process unfolded. Waiting in the pre-dawn to be picked-up we heard the rumble of a vehicle approaching the resort. Much to our amazement it was a rickety old red and white wood bus with... More

Exceptionally professionally run experience - highly competent pilots who are well informed of the area and have a passion for what they do. The team is drawn up of may locals which is a plus as you then have the feel good factor that you are supporting local employment - also some of the cost is passed onto a local... More

Use this company for your Bagan ballon trip! Book early as spot fill up quickly, professional pilots and service that put even those afraid of heights at ease. Biggest surprise is Champagne and snacks after the ride! Again amazing experience and definitely worth the cost, you will not regret choosing this company!

Breathtaking! An absolute must. Just as amazing at Cappadokia in Turkey but even more magical being over the ancient city of Bagan. Get to Myanmar before is gets too touristic. BOB staff were great and the Balloon guy was fun and entertaining. Just a spectacular experience!

This was worth getting up early for. You should know that due to new government regulations, the ballon pilots are no longer allowed to fly directly over the monument zone but you can still see plenty of temples, but not as close as previously. There is a camera mounted on the outside of the ballon basket and the pilot will... More

One of the all time highlights. Simply sublime. I really can't fault this organisation. Everything ran like clockwork. The team were completely professional but friendly and the experience of the flight way beyond expectations. I would travel to Myanmar simply to do this. So if you come to Bagan make sure you treat yourself to a balloon ride
