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.

Fantastic experience. Worth every penny. We noticed this on the plane on the way down and decided to go find this, very glad we did. The views were incredible, the staff were friendly also. Definitely worth going. Highly recommended

Lovely views! It is weather permitting & we were going to visit the same day as the baths but it wasn’t operating as it was too windy. We decided to go back another day & glad we did. We got there for 10am & there was only 4 of us on it! Really steady take off & landing, felt really safe throughout. Staff spoke good English & gave safety instructions clearly. Would recommend going early & checking website before you go to see if it’s operating on the day. It was just under £20 & worth the visit! There’s a lovely park, lake & castle nearby too.

The balloon fly experience was fantastic , despite being terrified of heights I felt safe and amazed by the views ( once I had let go of the rail and opened my eyes lol ) the guide/operator was friendly and very knowledgable of the area below , the views are breathtaking and it’s such a great experience

Saw the balloon from the baths so decided to walk over as checked out prices online. Very strange ticketing system, queued for around an hour and a half with zero communication. Queue would not move for 30 minutes at a time as nobody in the ticket booth. Paid and again no communication as to when our turn was, ticket just advised how many people in front. Decided to get some food from the cafe while we waited - BIG MISTAKE. Staff were incredibly rude, there was a young boy working who stopped and stared at us until we moved out of his way whilst browsing the menu, instead of walking around us. We ordered and as the food came they called our ticket! We asked if they could place it inside while we went up but was told we just had to leave it on the table and come back to it! Had there been more communication on timings we would not have bothered. The balloon ride was good, staff member didn’t say much about what we were looking at but the views were nice for the short time up there. Wouldn’t recommend really - waisted a good few hours of my birthday queueing and waiting.

My recent air balloon ride over Budapest was a spectacular experience. The breathtaking views of the city's iconic landmarks and the serene journey over the Danube River made it unforgettable. I highly recommend this adventure!

Amazing! Not at all scary, super nice staff and exceptional view. Feels very safe and secure. Even though this was slightly expensive, I find it totally worth the price!

This was an unforgettable experience. Highly recommended to everyone.

Had that feel to it

What can I say
Great views and unbelievable panaromic photo opportunities
Steady ascent & descent
Get to walk around the balloon cockpit in a circle
Wasn’t windy thankfully
Not done this experience before so well worth it
First noticed it from the castle so asked a guide where it was and visited it

Decided to ride BalloonFly after seeing it up in the sky during a stroll through Liget Budapest (Városliget Park) in early March 2023. It was chilly and cloudy. BalloonFly staff provided clear instructions on the ascent and descent safety procedures. Total activity time was about 10 to 18 minutes. Ascent and descent time was about 2 to 3 minutes. Once maximum height was reached there was time to enjoy panoramic views of Budapest and walk around the basket. Fun activity and a great way to get panoramic views of Budapest in Pest.
