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.

A truly wonderful trip from start to finish, we would recommend Broadland Balloon to anyone who wants to try this experience. A thoroughly professional team, David explained each step of our flight and happily answered any questions. The celebratory bacon & egg Up Uproll with champagne (or coffee/tea) was a lovely surprise.

I booked this 6 years ago for 2 friends. They have diligently rebooked immediately after every flight has been cancelled, some for very poor reasons. Their flight last week was cancelled again and they are now not allowed to try to rebook until the next available booking window at the end of January 2024. Why do clients whose flights are cancelled not get priority for rebooking. Simple, they aren’t bringing in any new cash!! The skies used to be full of hot air balloons, I’m not even convinced this company actually own any. Very disappointed/frustrated etc

Although a very early alarm call to get to Old Buckenham by 06:45am, it was definitely worth the effort. Had a very friendly pilot and team who explained everything, and then we all helped to get the balloon ready - all part of the wonderful experience. A very blue sky with not much wind - we floated along on the breeze. Sensational. A very soft landing in a field, and then we all helped to get the balloon packed away, before the celebration glass of fizz. What a wonderful experience.

We had the most amazing balloon flight with Broadland Balloons this morning. We were incredibly lucky to fly on our very first try, many others had waited months/years to finally get in the air. The team made us feel at ease and explained what was happening with the delay in getting in the air due to the weather. Our pilot David was clearly experienced and made us feel very safe throughout. A lovely touch with champagne being served after landing too.

After over two years and 8 false starts we finally got away on our 9th try and it was so well worth the wait! Staff were superb on the ground and in the air and very helpful and the flight itself was wonderful. The landing itself was immaculate, two gentle kisses and then the pilot landed the basket upright like a balloon pilot ultra ninja. If you get the chance then grab it you won't regret it. Glass of bubbles at the end to top it off. wonderful.

We were so lucky to fly on our first attempt and enjoyed a beautiful clear and sunny morning over Norwich to celebrate my birthday. Wonderful to see the city landmarks from a completely different perspective and it was amazing to see how lush and green our county is. Added bonus to witness hares running across open fields as we peacefully drifted over the countryside and a glass of champagne on landing was the icing on the (birthday) cake!. The team were professional, friendly and we felt safe in their hands at all times. All in all, a fantastic experience and we would strongly recommend!!
