Seeing the photograph makes me grin from ear to ear. It was my wife’s birthday and you struggle to find something that will make her day as its normally a case of been there, done that. A balloon trip was a perfect idea. Your crew were friendly and we all got involved in setting things up. Once the balloon was inflated we all piled in and we were off. It’s impossible to describe the exhilaration of ascending into the sky in such a silent and majestic way (the odd blast from the burners being the only disruption). We flew over Bath and out into the countryside and lapped up every minute of it. It was such a thrill that it was almost a disappointment to be told we were descending - we would have been happy to stay up there all day! The pilot picked what looked like a narrow strip to land in but he was inch perfect. As we landed we even had a curious deer looking up at us. On getting home we announced to the kids what a wonderful experience we had had and of course they now want to go up in a balloon too. Is that a problem? Hell no! It means we get to go up in a balloon again and I for one cannot wait. Thanks for a wonderful experience.

Hi all at Bailey Balloons

Just to thank Clive and the team for the amazing flight we had last night. It was the second time we have flown with you and somehow I think it won't be the last! The weather, atmosphere, view over Bristol, landing, champagne - all were perfect.

Margaret 

Dear Mr Bailey and Team, Thank you very much for our wonderful balloon ride last Sunday from Bristol. We both had a great time and we felt safe and confident due to your most professional piloting and support from your ground crew. The experience was well worth the long wait and all the cancellations due to the dreadful weather we have had this year. Even the landing in the muddy field was part of an exciting experience and I am only sorry that I was not more informed to be of greater assistance once we landed. Again, you and your crew were just great and hearing from you about going to the rescue of your fellow balloonists (Virgin Balloons) only confirms that we made the correct choice with Bailey's.

Seriously, we had a good time and even though we missed our train we went to a hotel, had a good meal, a laugh and a nice sleep. Thank you for the memory stick, certificates and letter, we would fly with you again anytime and will not hesitate to recommend your services. Our sincere compliments to you and your whole team from the crew to the good service from the people in the office. Kind regards, 

Alan & Arti

First of all I had a flight on my own from Bath and my daughter and wife saw me off. I was thrilled with the flight so much so that I bought another flight for myself and daughter to from Bristol. My daughter was also thrilled and we felt everything was so professional and we felt really well looked after. We really enjoyed our flight, well for me flights! We really recommend anyone to go with Bailey Balloons for a Champagne balloon flight.

My partner and I very much enjoyed our flight over the beautiful Monmouthshire countryside. I especially enjoyed flying low over woodland and looking down on airbourne buzzards. The fact that we had the adventure of taking off and landing twice was also wonderful (no gate in the first field), as was being part of laying out the balloon before flight and helping to collect it in afterwards. Our pilot was exactly the right mix of dry humour and obvious ability with the balloon. The champagne was most welcome -a celebratory ending, watching the last of the sunset.

This flight was a gift from my sister, and I really persevered in the booking of it in order to satisfy her. I'm glad that I did. It wasn't the most obvious present for me - someone who experiences mild vertigo, hates to read small print, and to arrange trips!
We did nearly give up with the weather in June and July, with the re-arranged trips. However, it was reassuring that you do only fly when the conditions are right.
I'll certainly recommend your flights to others.
With best wishes

Tess

We'de like to say a big thank you to all at Bailey Balloons. After a few delays due to the British weather this summer we finally took to the sky on Saturday. The experience was fantastic! we'd like to say a particular thank you to the ground crew who worked hard, were humerous and helped make the trip. Special thanks to our Pilot, who professional and very welcoming of everyone flying.

Gary & Anne 

Dear Clive I am just writing to thank you and your team for a fantastic flight in the balloon last night from Monmouth. As you know it was my mother's request for her 80th birthday and we all had a wonderful time. Thanks you for making it such a memorable experience, skimming the trees and seeing deer was wonderful, and of course we had the added bonus of a second flight!I hope we get to repeat the experience again soon.
Many thanks

Alison, Geoffrey and Jenny 

I can't believe it had taken me until my dad was 70 for me to go up in a balloon! At 43 I have to say it was one of the most beautiful and amazing experiences. After the initial shock of being in the air in basically, an over sized basket, I soon got into the groove and was in heaven, well nearly! Being part of the breeze, the views over my home town, the joy for my parents and being in the safe hands of a great balloonist, made it a trip of a lifetime.

Robin and Suzi, Good Life Incorporated

Thanks so much for my wonderful balloon flight at the balloon fiesta.
Although I was a little nervous, Jo, Clive and Sarah calmed my nerves and the whole evening felt really special. The views were stunning, and the experience was really was unforgettable. Now I can tick that off my list of things to do by the time I'm 30! Thank you so much, I can't wait to do it again!

R Stone

Big thanks for a fabulous flight! We thoroughly enjoyed it and would recommend it. Hope to fly again next year with a group of friends. Thank you.
 

C Morgan

Just wanted to write and thank everyone for a wonderful time last Friday.
Really appreciated the attention and consideration of the flight crew.
The whole day was a great, great experience.
PLEASE CONVEY OUR THANKS TO ALL.

G & R Parkhouse

The morning really was an amazing experience and the friendly yet professional attitude of all the staff just made it all the better. I really enjoyed the experience of helping set up and pull down the balloon, though at first I didn't think I would.
The photos I took have made my friends and family so jealous and I'm recommending Bailey Balloons to them all (it's fascinating how many people have said that a balloon ride is something they've often considered).
Sarah and myself are so pleased we made the effort - money well spent.
Thanks again,

R Hodges

Dear All,
Now that we have returned from our holiday in South Wales, we just wanted to thank all concerned with our balloon flight. Particular thanks go to Sue and Richard, who made what was already an amazing gift even more special.
They were extremely professional, very friendly and keen to pass on their enthusiasm. We couldn't have asked for a better pilot and crew for our first balloon flight.
Thanks very much for a very memorable morning.

L & T Rogers

Just had our flight this morning with Clive, Christine and John. I would like to take this opportunity to thank the flight team for an exceptional experience. It was fun from the beginning to end. Thanks for a great time!

Sharon

Dear all at Bailey Balloons Just wanted to thank you for a wonderful flight last Thursday over Bath and down to Paulton. The bumpy landing just added to it.  Thanks to everyone who made it such a special evening for us (husband's 60th birthday present) especially Clive, Nick, Dave, and everyone who helped arrange it.  It was awesome. We will be back!

M Burns

Just a quick thank you for your flexibility, which allowed us to take advantage of our flight voucher purchased for us by our children, to celebrate our silver wedding anniversary.
It was a perfect morning on the 23rd and a delightful balloon flight ‐ we took some great camera shots of a wonderful event.
Once again, many thanks.
 

Will & Jan

Dear Jo,
Thank you so much for your help with our visit to Bristol.
The Bristol Hotel you recommended to us was without fault. Alicia and all of the staff were extremely helpful, and we had a most enjoyable stay there.     
There were seven of us in the balloon on the morning of the 12th August and everyone had a fantastic time. The three photographers and reporters in the basket made it all the more fun; we had to push and shove Terry and Janet to get into the basket, which was made all the more funny as that was shown on the news in the evening!
Would you also thank Clive and the team for making the trip so memorable, and tell him that he gave a very interview on the TV.
I hope to get another group there next year.

P Watson-Jones

Len and I have had a thoroughly pleasant and serene morning. I had no idea how peaceful the experience would be and would have been quite happy to fly all the way to Scotland.
Thank you so much for looking after us and keeping us safe. Happy Landings!

C Martin

Dear Clive and Team, Just wanted to send you a massive thank you for our amazing balloon flight that was a terrific climax to our wedding day at Calcot Manor, we feel incredibly lucky it came off having spent all week worrying about the weather, the evening conditions were perfect and we flew 15 miles over the beautiful Cotswolds and even managed to fly over Highgrove. Richard was great and added to the experience and coped well with my barrage of enthusiastic questions! We loved it so much we would also like to confirm our sun morning flight we had booked as a reserve at the balloon fiesta.

C & N Dewar

We went up with Mike on Friday night, first time. It was an awesome experience, fantastic pilot, gentleman and great support crew. Thank you so very much.

D McGimpsey

Just a brief note to thank you for the marvellous flight which Maggie and I enjoyed enormously.
Many thanks and best wishes

Tony

Thank you so much for a truly memorable balloon flight last Thursday evening ‐ I could have stayed up there forever!
I'll certainly be encouraging people to become pioneering aviators should they be visiting or living in your area.  It was a perfect evening.

S Harris

Clive

Thanks so much for our unforgettable flight on Friday evening. We finally cashed in our gift from our daughters and their husbands! Thanks also to the entire team at Bailey Balloons, for your patience and enthusiasm. We will remember Friday for a long, long time.

Thanks

Mike & Nat Nixon

Just wanted to say a big thank you to all of you and especially Clive for such an enjoyable experience last Friday. It really was worth it in the end despite two weather cancellations. I think our friends and family are just wanting us to shut up about it.!!!



Best Wishes
 

Nigel, Debbie and Charles Cutland

I would just like to say thank you very much for a cracking balloon flight with you on the 13th June. Our experience on the flight will be one that will be remembered for the rest of our lives; Clive is a brilliant pilot and a great character that obviously loves what he does. Now we know what ballooning is about we are going to try to do it more often.

 

Once again many thanks to you and your staff for giving us such a memorable occasion.

Rob Dorey

Thank you for making this such a fantastic experience. Third time lucky, this was a fifteenth anniversary gift for my Wife Val. She was thrilled by it all, and it certainly made it special. My children David and Lawrence came along as well and really enjoyed it. It was a beautiful day; fantastic views and loads of fun and it will be a day we long remember.

John Mayer

We flew with Clive last Saturday evening from Ashton Court and wanted to say thank you for a really fabulous time. We even flew close by our house, which just helped to make it extra special. A big thank you - an experience we will treasure and never forget.

Joan and Chris

We would like to say thanks and how we enjoyed the flight on sat 2nd of May morning flight. We loved every minute of the day.

Thanks for all the help you given to us.

 

Thanks
Regards

Jackie

Dear Clive,

 

Thanks for taking us up in the Original balloon on Sunday morning.

 

Something I have always wanted to do and was truly amazing.

 

All the best

Alastair

I would just like to take the opportunity to thank the crew for making my daughters flight on Saturday morning such a pleasure. She had a superb flight and thoroughly enjoyed her 18th birthday present.

 

Thanks once again.

Mr R Humphries (Father of Jessica)

To all at Bailey Balloons

 

Just a note to say thank you for a fantastic evening on Friday. The crew were all great! We look forward to going up again very soon.

Chris and Pat Bess

Dear Clive and Jo

 

I flew with you on Saturday 25th July. We landed in the corn field! Just to say we had the most amazing experience, I know it wasn't your textbook flight but to Gill and I it just added to the thrill! I just hope you managed to get the balloon and basket back in one piece and get some sleep! We finally got home at 2am so god only knows what time you got home to bed.

 

The very best wishes to you and all your team. My memories will be better than those of others as the ride was beautiful and the "extra" bits were funny!

 

Thanks again,

 

Gill and Deborah

Hi All,

 

I would just like to say how much I enjoyed my days flying, your team on the day Christine, John and our pilot Sue were very professional and helpful. They even had a sense of humour! I have been trying to fly for five years and to have such a day with the weather and the other people I flew with was wonderful.

 

I will certainly be flying again with you and will be recommending your company.

 

Once again thanks very much

Colin Matthews

Hi Jo

 

A huge thank you to all the team for a magnificent experience last night and especially to Chris our Pilot, whose calmness and reassuring manner was wonderful. My wife, Gwen, is usually a bit nervous about new experiences, but on the way home she said that even with the three aborted attempts at landing and then the landing itself when we all tipped over, she was not the slightest bit apprehensive, because she had every confidence in Chris.

 

From the first look at your web site, to the telephone conversations and to the preparations for and the flight itself, I have been most impressed with your friendliness and superb organisation.


It was a truly memorable and fun filled evening for which I and my family guests all say a very big thank you

 

Derek

Hello

A slightly late THANK YOU for our amazing balloon flight last Tuesday (18th Aug). We had the most wonderful evening with Clive and it was definitely worth waiting for. Jack (11) kept pinching himself to make sure he was not dreaming and can't wait to fly again!! What a wonderful evening.

Thank you also for your help in the many bookings we have made and for extending our voucher to ensure we got to fly.

I'm sure we'll be in touch again (just have to find a good occasion!).
 

Nicola Hemming

Hello,

I'd just like to say a big thank you to Clive and his team for a fabulous ballooning experience from Bath on September 23.


My guests for the flight really enjoyed themselves - some said it was the best corporate event they'd ever been invited to!
I can't wait to be able to book another one over my home area of Abergavenny!

Some people ordered the photograph on the night and they have been asking me when they can expect to receive it.
If you could let me know that would be great!

Rachel

Hi Jo,


I just had to send you an Email thanking your company for the wonderful experience myself and my grandchildren had yesterday October 14th flying from Bath. From the mouth of an 11 year old boy "it was the most amazing thing that has happened to me all my life". I feel that Clive really does deserve a medal coping with an overweight 61 year old and my thanks go to him for the non embarrassing way in which he dealt with myself. In deed all the staff that attended to us were more than helpful and generous.

Once again my heartfelt thanks and I have recommended the experience to so many people in work because they knew I was going.

Regards.
 

Christine

Dar Clive and Jo

I just wanted to say a big thank you for yesterday evening..

It was a most enjoyable event, my first time in a balloon, hopefully not my last.


Kind regards

Mark

Jo & Clive,

I would like to thank you both for the wonderful flight myself and my partner Tina had with you on Sunday from Bristol. The whole experience was truly breathtaking, we both agreed there is no other way to spend a Sunday morning than up in a hot air balloon. Once again, thank you for a truly great day.

Ian Duffield and Tina Scollen

Hi.



I would just like to thank all your team for such a very enjoyable flight on Thursday (yesterday) morning from Victoria Park in Bath. This was the 1st time that I have ever been up in a hot air balloon and I had no real idea of what to expect. In the event, I found the whole thing from start to finish a thoroughly enjoyable and well organised experience and something that I hope to be able to do again. Once again, thank you all very much for a memorable time.



Very best wishes.
 

Roger Barnes

Hi

 

I just wanted to drop you a line to say thank you for an amazing flight on Friday evening! It was a superb surprise for Rob's birthday and one I am sure he will never forget! Ian was a superb pilot and was supported by such a great team.

 

Kind regards

Mandy

Hi
 

Just to thank you for the superb evening on Sunday. The whole event was extremely well organised and the flight was everything I had imagined, so serene and fascinating as we drifted over Bath identifying all the landmarks.
 

Thank you for enabling me to enjoy a wonderful celebration gift.
 

Jill Spiteri

We are writing to express our delight at the wonderful experience we had when we went up in a hot air balloon in July with Sue, our pilot and Stuart who was assisting. We thoroughly enjoyed the evening. I think the fact that we were encouraged to get involved with the inflating of the balloon also added to the excitement. We just want to thank everyone involved for ensuring it was such a memorable time for us and a lovely gift that we were given.

Deann Thomas and Wayne Stutt

Dear All,
 

Now that we have returned from our holiday in South Wales, we just wanted to thank all concerned with our balloon flight. Particular thanks go to Sue and Richard, who made what was already an amazing gift even more special. They were extremely professional, very friendly and keen to pass on their enthusiasm. We couldn't have asked for a better pilot and crew for our
first balloon flight.

 

Thanks very much for a very memorable morning.

 

Best wishes,
 

Lynne and Tony Rogers

We booked a tethered balloon flight for our daughter's wedding and it was a complete success. Sue and Ben were so helpful and professional. Without the hot air balloon it would have been a good wedding, with the balloon it became a memorable and uplifting (!) event. Our advice to anyone planning a wedding - dump the florist and head to the skies...

Victoria Slack

The morning really was an amazing experience and the friendly yet professional attitude of all the staff just made it all the better. I really enjoyed the experience of helping set up and pull down the balloon, though at first I didn't think I would.

 

The photos I took have made my friends and family so jealous and I'm recommending Bailey Balloons to them all (it's fascinating how many people have said that a balloon ride is something they've often considered).

 

Both Sarah and myself are very pleased we made the effort and I feel that the flight was £200 (or thereabouts) well spent.
 

Thanks again

Richard Hodges

Just wanted to write and thank everyone for a wonderful time last Friday.
Really appreciated the attention and consideration of the flight crew.
The whole day was a great, great experience.
 

PLEASE CONVEY OUR THANKS TO ALL.
 

Geoff, Rhona and Sian Parkhouse

To all at Bailey Balloons,

A huge thank you. Although I booked the flight over a year ago and had to extend due to poor weather and work commitments, it was well worth the wait. My family are still amazed by the whole experience, your professionalism throughout the whole trip from you, Clive, and your team and of course the incredible experience of the hot air balloon flight. I and my family have never experienced anything like it. Not forgetting the perfect landing! We will be recommending you to everyone! First class!

 

I am just writing to thank you for all your assistance with the arrangement of the balloon flight for my wife and I on 22 April last. Our pilot Ian and his ground crew member John were both very helpful and informative and put us at our ease. The flight was exceptional and very much enjoyed by us both. An experience I would definitely recommend to others and would not hesitate to take again. The bottle of champagne on touchdown added to the sense of occasion and was very much enjoyed!

Thank you again for all of your help with the arrangement of the flight and please pass on our thanks to our pilot Ian.

William and Alison Allen

To all at Bailey Balloons

 

Just a quick email to say a big thank you to all of you for a superb balloon ride on Saturday 19th June, especially Sue our pilot who was my witness to my proposal, thankfully she said “yes”

Great job and will definitely recommend Bailey Balloons to all my friends and amily.

Regards

 

David

To Clive & Jo

 

Just wanted to say a massive thank you. I flew from Bath with you yesterday and managed to get the flight on the exact day of my 28th birthday!! It will be one to remember. All the crew were great! I will highly recommend you guys wherever possible in future. I love my work and to me it's much more than just a job. Its so refreshing to come across people with an equal passion and love for what they do.

Kind regards,

 

 Tom + Mirco  

To All at Bailey Balloons.
 

I am just writing to let you know that I had a wonderful flight with your company last Sunday, 27th March 2009. The staff were very helpful and professional and I would have no problem in recommending your company to anyone. In fact I would love to do it again myself. Many thanks again.

Jan Skinner

Mr. Bailey, WOW!! You put on a wonderful show with all the hot air balloons at the Fiesta. When I booked the ride for my husband and daughter on the 8th, I had no idea that it was part of something so special. They loved the ride. My daughter had been on a balloon ride with her husband before, but said this was "Fantastic, the best thing ever!" Our family would like to thank you for the adventure of a lifetime and for the excellent work you did at the festival. I had hoped for beautiful weather that night and you had it.

Keep up the wonderful job you and your family are doing. Your website gave me a sense of family when I read it and then booked with you. My daughter and husband said we made that right choice! Thank you again for a glorious adventure.

Ruth Miller

Dear Clive

Thank you for a lovely photograph of us all in the Bailey Balloons basket!

We all had a brilliant morning and it was well worth the wait. You had to post-pone a couple of times due to bad weather conditions but you obviously take good care to ensure that on the day your guests actually fly they have the best time possible.

For our flight, with my teenage children, we were all keen out of bed at 5.00am to meet you and the crew at Ashton Court promptly at 6.00am! It was a surprise to see how large the envelope actually was close up and great that all the guests were encouraged to assist in the preparations for the flight.

Not all of the guests were as “young” as us and you and your crew took extremely good care of the two pensioners bravely taking their first ever balloon flights in their mi-eighties ‐ this proving that this truly is an ideal gift for anyone, any age.

The flight itself has given us great photographs and memories of the views over Ashton Court, looking across to the City Ground, Bristol Suspension Bridge and the Downs areas was fantastic! It was particularly nice for me personally that the wind took us towards Ham Green/Pill area ‐ we flew over abbots pool which brought back some childhood memories of picnics there when I was probably about 10! We also saw wild deer and rather bizarrely people sleeping outside in their garden at 6.30am!!

The wind was very light and as we travelled gracefully over the fields any fears of height were easily forgotten ‐ the basket didn't even creak. The landing in the farm that you store some of your balloons in was great, we braced ourselves but the landing was absolutely perfect.

We all enjoyed helping to bring the balloon down and I hope you liked the extra pictures that we sent of our landing.

Finally the glasses of champagne after all the hard work was done was lovely ‐ you and your crew made it an experience that we shall not forget!

Lisa Ewing


Just to say what a wonderful time Howard and Colin had on Sunday evening. The service was exceptional, and our compliments are sent to the pilot for making the flight so enjoyable. Our thanks are also extended to the support team, so please pass on our praise to all those concerned.

The whole event from start to finish was fantastic and unforgettable.

Dan and Jane, Dorset

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.

Zena Birch

We had a few cancelation due to weather but when we did fly it was wonderful, Clive was great, its something you have to do!

Mr & Mrs Harvey

I wanted to forward our huge thanks for the Balloon flight on Friday evening, 13th June. Clive was the 'life and soul' of the group and managed to gee us and the team along with his enthusiasm. We both felt that this enthusiasm was catching and 'went along for the ride'. Well the crew were all welcoming, Ed and Liz were great and took time to chat and spend time with us all.

There was a point where we wondered if it was a bit touch and go if we would be cancelled but luckily for us it was third time lucky. The big black cloud scuttled off to the horizon and the sun shone down on us. Up we went and well it was fantastic, there was really nothing in the world like it and we can see where the team get all their enthusiasm from. It's such a buzz and if I'd taken a moment to savour it rather than racing off at ten to the dozen then I'd have enjoyed a bit more of the peace and tranquillity you get from floating by going where the breeze takes you. I think that we were particularly lucky on that evening, and with our skilled pilot Clive carefully manoeuvring us past each potential landing site where we'd just missed the corner of the field. I expect a few of us in the basket had our fingers crossed that we would carry on and we did.

The landing just on the edge of Timsbury was textbook and the adventure didn't stop there. The cold set in but we were able to warm ourselves helping to pack up the balloon and then the champagne gave that extra little glow to our cheeks. A very late evening but one we're going to enjoy recounting for many more years to come. We're saving up, as we speak, for our next flight and maybe we'll enquire about joining the team! Thank you again, so very much, it was a birthday present for my husband to remember.

Alison & Julian Withey

To sing Happy 60th Birthday to my mum 2,500 feet up was unforgettable. Worth the wait for that perfect special day. The pilot Phil, and his crew explained the whole experience in details from start to finish, they were fantastic. ! A truly magical and exhilarating experience we as a family will never forget!

Helen Rapps & Family

Just to say a big thank you for a wonderful experience when we had a flight with you. It was a surprise for our Golden Wedding Anniversary and they could not have arranged anything better for us; the views that we had were superb and will never be forgotten. We were very impressed with the way that you and your personnel took care and explained everything to us all that just to say thank you seems to be inadequate. We have added some pictures of the flight onto our website www.gradotti.co.uk.

Dot and Graham Roberts, Pembrokeshire

I just wanted to write and say a great big thank you for organising our balloon flight on the Saturday morning of the fiesta. It was for my dads 80th birthday and he loved it. I was terrified but that's another matter. Please also say thanks to Hazel who was also very reassuring despite being busy. Our pilot was lovely, checking to make sure everything was ok. We took this photo for you to see. Please send our thanks to everyone involved. All the best.

Lisa and Denis Gardiner, Balloon Fiesta

Thanks for a wonderful trip on 17th August, it was made the more enjoyable by a flight path over the city centre. Full of admiration for the skill and expertise and the entertaining form of landing with a total of 13 with their world at right angles to that of gravity and each person having to pop out of their pods in sequence added spice. thanks again!

Maurice Rogers, Bristol

Thank you for an excellent in-flight photo of our trip from Llanarth (am) on 30th August. We had a wonderful time and really enjoyed it-so lucky with the weather.

John & Marieke, Berkshire

I am writing to you to say how much my family and I enjoyed our recent flight in one of your balloons. We took off from Royal Victoria Park, Bath on Friday August 4 and landed just a few miles from our home, near the Nestles Factory in Staverton. Before the start of our flight I was extremely nervous but the superb views and peaceful environment in the balloon made me forget my jitters! The assistance we received from our pilot Lee and his two helpers was superb and we would like to extend our thanks to them for making it such a special occasion. We all agree that we would like to repeat the experience again one day soon.

Christine, Bournemouth

Many thanks to Bailey Balloons for rearranging our fight at such short notice! We had a brilliant flight yesterday thanks to Clive and Phil, it was all the better for the anticipation following the several delays. It was a truly magical experience indeed. Please tell Clive that the remains of the champers did go down very well indeed with the fish & Chips and that we didn't spill a drop on the way home! Many thanks.

Jon & Lucy, Port Talbot

Just a brief note to say a big thank you on behalf of Kate, Janet and I for a splendid evening last Wednesday. This was the first balloon ride that any of us had done, and it really was a fantastic experience. Every aspect of the evening was enjoyable, professional and very personalised and please pass on our thanks also to Mark and Di for their part in the evening. I am sure it is something we will want to do again at some stage. Sincere thanks again.

Jerry, Frome

Just to say thank you for a wonderful experience. We will recommend you to everyone.

Jemma & Helen, Babington House

Thank you very much for an excellent balloon ride on Saturday 10th April from Bath, it was my wife's birthday and it really made her day. Simon the pilot and Jo made it a fun and enjoyable ride. Next time we would like to do an early morning ride from Ashton Court. Many regards.

Peter, Bristol

Our flight was magical! We managed to fly on my Birthday, we would definitely recommend it.

Sue & Alan, Cardiff

Clive was an excellent pilot and made the experience very special for my 6yr old granddaughter, who had come along to watch. Very enjoyable flight!

David, Bridgend

I would like to thank you and your staff and pilot Lee Hooper, for the wonderful experience I had yesterday. The Balloon Flight. It was really great! Many thanks.

Anthony, Somerset
