Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Lovely people , very knowledgeable and friendly .. really enjoyed our first ever balloon flight .. would have been even better if we had travelled further but the weather conditions were against us.

Loved being able to talk to Nick, the pilot, who is professional and great fun. Felt really confident about safety and that personal contact was very important to us. The flight was amazing and great fun. We were so well looked after at all times with bubbles afterwards! We were a group of eight so brilliant having the balloon to ourselves.

I took my Dad up on the morning of his birthday as a surprise from the Chew Valley, the entire experience from start to finish was utterly incredible. Nick was so helpful when booking, so informative and made it so easy. We lucked out with the most gorgeous weather and the whole trip couldn’t have been more perfect. It was something we both had wanted to do for years and have talked about it countless times since, we couldn’t recommend First Flight enough, Nick & the team were amazing, excellent service and just really lovely people, which made the experience extra special.

Fabulous experience. Would love to fly again. The two people running the flight were very professional and engaging with us all. Goes without saying how good the views were. I liked the idea of us being involved with getting the flight ready for takeoff and packing away after landing. Finished up with a celebratory drink after the flight, all included as part of the whole experience.

The whole experience, from the time they picked us up from the country pub, to landing in a field, was brilliant.
The flight was smooth, the driver was knowledgeable and the views were spectacular.
An amazing experience. We both loved it.

Perfect conditions which helped, minimal wind and sunny clear morning. The crew and pilot were very chilled and a laugh. Went over Chew Valley lake watching the morning midst evaporate, rabbits coming out of their burrows, deer running through forests, birds flying over the lake and landing. We got to go through Cheddar Gorge to see goats traversing down the terrain, the hovered over the town for ages, then landed beyond in a farmers field, through a massive cow pat, as you do, lol, to help pack up the balloon, then drank a few glasses of bubbly, lovely jubbly!. Excellent :)

OMG, highly recommended!!! What an incredible experience in a hot air balloon over Chew Valley Lake/Blagdon Lake/Cheddar Gorge, with Bristol and Wales in the distance.
So many laughs, Nick Dunnington from First Flight was an absolutely amazing pilot, but with added entertainment!
Thanks for returning us safely. I will do it again, for sure!
Felt so relaxed, but the added Champers at the end with the beautiful sunset topped it off xxx Wow, just WOW!
Book now, you won’t be disappointed!
