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.

Booked the week before. Looked at the weather then chose the day. Done quite a few “Red Letter day experiences “ up there with the best.
Really special day, professional organisation, highly recommendable.
If you want a special day for a special person, then look no further !!!

We were incredibly luck that Yorkshire Balloon Flights gave our class of children (from a local primary school) their own private ciewing if a balloon being inflated. It was a truly magical experience and really supported their learning about flight. Ollie and his crew were exceptionally professional and I couldn't recommend them enough! Thank you!

What an experience, I was very nervous but I really had no need to be!! I was put at ease with the knowledge and expertise off the pilot. I would recommend this company 100% and have done so.
Thank you for a magical experience.

On the bucket list and we finally went up in the hot air balloon after the British Weather was kind.
Massive thanks to Yorkshire Balloon Flights. Ollie & Dave thanks for the whole experience 😊.
They ask you to help from start to finish with unraveling the balloon & putting it away and this makes it extra special.
And a glass of bubbly at the end to Toast the flight.
Would highly recommend it!

What an amazing hot air balloon ride! We loved every second of it. Ollie is clearly a seasoned pilot which made me feel at ease. We were lucky enough to fly over our house too! We had a brilliant group and really enjoyed the whole experience, thank you.

We had an amazing time! The views were great, and it was lovely to finish with champagne in a great setting.

Ollie and Dave were extremely professional and friendly, and they made the whole experience really fun.

Would definitely recommend!

Fantastic experience & would definitely do it again . Ollie is an excellent pilot. They ask you to help from start to finish with unraveling the balloon & putting it away if you want to . For me it was all part of the experience. It’s so serene when your up in the air . It was a perfect morning for the flight .

I would highly recommend using this small independent family run business.
Ollie our pilot, also runs the business, was very friendly with plenty of local knowledge.
It was a beautiful serene experience with fantastic views of York and the surrounding landscape. You will not be disappointed if you choose to fly with Ollie and his staff.

Wow! What a fabulous way to start the day. This was my first balloon flight and I can't recommend it highly enough. Ollie our pilot was great, went through all the safety information before we helped to set the balloon up. The preparation took about 40 minutes before we flew east out of York. Fantastic views of the city and the immediate countryside. The landing was far better than many planes! We finished the morning helping to put the balloon back in its bag - no mean feat. Champagne and/or orange juice followed before the minibus took us back into York. Everything from the booking to the flight itself was handled quickly and efficiently. A quick mention to Dave and Charlie, our ground staff. If you're going to fly, fly with a local company, they're brilliant.
