Thank you so much for our amazing flight on Monday 17th May. The evening was beautiful and the flight was perfect and getting to fly over Bath too was a fantastic bonus. Most importantly my mum had the time of her life, it was a dream come true and so I just wanted to thank you for making the whole event so wonderful. I will be recommending you to everyone I know who expresses a desire to see the world from a balloon!
Thank you again and I hope you have a successful and enjoyable summer of ballooning.
