7 of our adult family members had a great flight with Bristol Balloons this morning to celebrate a big birthday. Colin (the pilot), Nick, Moira & Caroline were all very friendly & professional and ensured we had a great time. I'd highly recommend Bristol Balloons to everyone.

My dad and I went on a balloon flight with Bristol Balloons. It was SO much fun, I loved it. The pilot was really good, and even when the wind changed direction and we ended up somewhere unexpected I always felt safe and in good hands. I also thought that they were very considerate and dealt very well with the farmer whose land we ended up on. Couldn't recommend them more, it was brilliant.

Thank you for a truly wonderful and unforgettable experience. From the moment we arrived we were given the most professional care and attention. The pilot made us all feel extremely relaxed and was able to answer everyone’s queries before we started our flight. The whole afternoon was incredibly special. Thank you Bristol Balloons.

This experience was on my bucket list and it way excelled my expectations! Visiting my home country from Canada, and wanting to fly in a balloon for decades, I felt my dreams had come true! The whole experience from safety, organization and the crew members were incredible and everyone was on top of covid precautions. The whole flight was made even more amazing flying over Bath with my Dad and my Sister, where we would frequently visit as children. The take off, flight and landing were exciting and something I shall never ever forget. Totally recommend Bristol Balloons for safety, fun and an all round incredible experience!

Had an amazing flight (finally) after Mother Nature decided I should fly (at the 7th attempt). Pilot Mike and his crew did an amazing job in involving not just myself, but my fellow passengers, in the process of inflating and packing away the balloon. Would highly recommend for a fantastic experience.
