Attraction details
Owner description: Bill Harrop's "Original" Balloon Safaris. If you're going to do it, do it in unassailable style. It's sunrise. The silence is only punctuated by the occasional blast of the powerful burners and the faint call of a bird or animal far beneath. The thrill is indescribable. Picture yourselves sipping champagne as you hover gently above the tree tops, or soar high above the mountain peaks. After landing, savour a delectable champagne breakfast at our well established, traditionally exquisite and beautifully appointed Clubhouse Pavilion and Restaurant where you will be filled with the warmest of memories.

Thank you Nicole B for such kind comments about our operation.
Indeed I can understand the “memory for life” comment, as even when travelling to many destinations around the world; so many people have come up to me and reminisce about flights they have enjoyed 20 to 30 years ago! THAT really WOWs me, and makes it all so worthwhile for the whole team.
Do come again when you get another bucket!
Meanwhile we are looking forward to entertaining your friends sometime soon.

Buoyant regards,
Bill Harrop,
CEO, Bill Harrop’s “Original” Balloon Safaris
