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.

If I could give more stars than 5 then I absolutely would! I put my trust into the company to plan a proposal for my partner and every step of the way they kept me up to date. Steve and Adam answered every single one of my questions and with it being such high stakes helped me plan it all to a T and keep it all cool and smooth. Ian the pilot was an absolute pleasure to fly with telling me and my partner all the interesting facts and sights of Bristol as we flew and when we touched down Matt and the rest of the crew accompanied by their lovely son were on hand immediately to get us home and celebrate this milestone. Do not look anywhere else if you want to go up in a hot air balloon! Their attention to detail and care they put in is second to none and helped keep an increasingly anxious passenger nice and calm ready for the big day. Thanks again all and see you again soon!

My flight was with Adam and what an incredible experience from start to finish. It was my first time in a hot air balloon and Adam put me at ease straight away explaining everything and as soon as we were in the air I felt incredibly safe and in good hands. I hope to go on another flight very soon. Hands down one of the best experiences I’ve had. All the crew were great and can’t recommend them enough 👍

Me and my son had the pleasure of enjoying this experience for the first time together, and what an experience it was. The pilot Adam made us both feel very comfortable and explained everything to us to put us at ease. We had a breathtaking evening flight over bath which is something I will never forgot. I would highly recommend this to everyone. Top class service

Having never done a balloon flight before I was extremely nervous, but Adam the pilot did a great job at helping me relax for the flight, getting us involved in the pre flight preparation and explaining everything along the way. I’ve always had a fear of fights but once we were up there that just faded away! It was such an amazing experience with an excellent team and I would 100% recommend these guys….can’t wait to sort my next flight with them!

This was the ultimate bucket list treat. Decadent, ethereal and amazing. A day I’ll never forget and an experience I couldn’t recommend highly enough. If you haven’t done it before, I urge you to give it a go! You won’t regret it and you’ll remember it forever

Had the most incredible experience with The Hot Air Balloon Company! Super professional and lovely team, brilliant comms and an absolutely unforgettable experience. We did the two person ride, flown by Adam, and although I'm a little nervous about heights I was absolutely blown away. Adam was brilliant and I even managed to let go of my grip on the handles. The beauty of the landscape, the specialness of the experience, the professionalism of the company and the bottle of fizz, I'd recommend 1000%
