    Enjoyed a great day out with Bailey Ballon’s, this was our second attempt at a flight as the first was called off on the day as the Pilot judged the weather conditions at the time were not suitable, safety was obviously in his decision, the second attempt was made on a beautiful morning which led to a wonderful experience, full marks to all the pilot and ground crew for making a fabulous day, would recommend Bailey Ballon’s to anyone wishing to experience a balloon flight

    Fantastic balloon ride with a very professional company we originally booked Bristol but the weather wasn’t suitable on the day so we were driven over to Bath (later driven back ) where we got hands on at inflating the balloon then a fantastic flight on a weather perfect day enjoyed the views with a friendly pilot who massively added to the whole experience,we landed in a field where again we were hands on at deflating the balloon and packing it away , then on the side of a hill with the sun shining away we enjoyed champagne with the whole group , a perfect experience very well organised a must if you’ve ever wanted to try hot air ballooning 10/10

    My Husband bought this for a birthday present due to being in covid lockdown for my 50th. Bailey Balloons had a simple process to book with the voucher I was given. They were always helpful when I phoned to answer a query too. I went for the early flight (as I’m an early bird) which was lucky as we had a heatwave at the fiesta & the evening flight’s were unable to launch. I was greeted by a staff member by the boarding gate at 5.30am, then waited to be taken over to the Pilot, Mike, for a safety briefing. My flight was absolutely amazing, at first you didn’t realise you had left the ground. Being amongst all the balloon’s at the fiesta was an unforgettable experience & one to tick off my bucket list. Mike was so informative about how he was flying the hot air balloon & when to take our landing position. He first tried to land but had to abort due to a breeze that caught us. Great for me to be able to spend just a bit longer up in the air. I didn’t want it to end (very peaceful) Finally we took landing positions again & we had the most smoothest landing I could have dreamt for with the basket remaining upright. I can’t thank the Bailey Balloons team enough for a fabulous morning. THANK YOU!!! 🎈

    Absolutely amazing experience at Bristol Balloon Fiesta! The whole crew at Baileys Balloons were super friendly and professional, Mark was a fsntastic pilot. It was such a smooth journey (and landing) and felt like floating. Amazing views of Bristol and the surrounds along the River Severn. So serene and so special to go up with all the other balloons too. A must do once in a lifetime and if you do you must choose Baileys Balloons! Thank you.

    The most fantastic experience, a must do for all. Great communication about timings and a very warm welcome at the Fiesta. Still buzzing from the experience.

    It was wonderful to float along, feeling completely safe. . They looked after me, a bit older than most - and my grandson, a bit younger! Neither much help with packing up the balloon but that didn't seem to matter!!

    Great experience! We actually flew from our local town Monmouth. We flew right over our house! Really well organised. Friendly and punctual staff. Plenty of room in the basket for everyone to have a great view. Thoroughly recommend it.

    A magical flight from Ashton Court. Everyone should take a balloon flight at least once in their lives if they can. Would definitely recommend Bailey Balloons..
