On my bucket list, after intense internet research ( which means not just Tripadvisor) I chose Monticello Country Ballooning. Mandy is fastidious over safety & even if you have only one specfic window of opportunity or date in mind she will not fly unless the conditions are good - so have a few workable times chosen. Whilst I was prepared to get up at 5am for it I was delighted to be able to have the perfect day for a 5pm lift off. It was just beautiful. We shared with another couple ( which was great for taking pics of each other ) & Scott followed on the ground taking photos of us on take-off & whilst we were in the air ( which were presented immediately post flight whilst we had champagne after). My partner was quite nervous but was calmly reassured pre-flight. We were able to be part of the preparations & packing up of the balloon which just added to the experience. & I have to say the landing was perfect, easier than stepping off an escalator. Superb for any type of special occasion, wonderful for just celebrating life ! Thank you both.
