This was an amazing experience for my 3 adult children and myself. They are all in their 20s and enjoyed this immensely. Thank you for making our trip to the UK extra special!
One of the best experiences of my life. Bought for me as a present in 2019 I was looking forward to the flight but the covid severely delayed that. Once flying resumed a number of planned flights had to be cancelled due to the vagaries of the British weather. But is all worth it - good points; - Reasonable cost given all the work behind the scenes. - Excellent communications from both Aerosaurus and Bailey Balloon. - An excellent pilot (Mike) and the ground grew who clearly knew their stuff and imbued confidence. - willingness of all passengers to help pre and post flight preparation. - The flight itself. - Post flight glass of Champagne. Downside; Only one - Unavoidable cancellations due to poor/unsafe weather. Advice - Be patient as in time all will come right and you will more than enjoy the experience In summary - HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
Feeling the heat of the flames, and gently and practically un-noticeably the lift off, and the landing. Well those are probably the top 3 of memorable moments,but it was so much more. The weather was perfect, we glided through the air like floating on a cloud. Wonderful views,not too long,and not too short. Plan on bringing a light jacket for after you have landed,by then it gets a little cooler,but really,not too much this night. July feeling like July. They arrived later than expected due to a huge traffic jam in Bristol. I suppose I got there way too early,and kept wondering if I was in the correct spot. Indeed the postal code brought me just a little further up than the actual lift off spot. People in the area could help you in knowing where the balloon does take off. Which is very close to the first spot I walked to. I actually thought I didn't need to call the weather line (I thought only for bad weather) but yes call the number,so you get a more accurate time for lift off. We actually landed in a field right behind what looks like a castle 🏰 from the front. A famous place to stay ,and you would and I did pass it on the way to Stonehenge!
Excellent balloon flight. So smooth and peaceful with superb views, such a wonderful feeling floating in the sky. A birthday treat from all my children. Dan was amazing, very knowledgeable and experienced we were all in very safe hands. From beginning to end couldn't fault it; and we landed smoothly!!
We had lovely pilots who took us around over Bath (Andrew and Peter), couldn’t have asked for more! We took the private balloon for two (the space is a little less - just enough to stand) but the experience was really good. Loved the stories of Bath and Bristol that were told by Andrew, and the popping of the champagne bottle in lush green lands of Bath was amazing! Absolutely enjoyed being a part of setting up the balloon too!
OMG what an experience. Booked for my husband to celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary. Originally wanted to take off from South Wales ( as we live there) but cancelled due to the weather. Rebooking flight so easy and managed to take off for evening flight in Bath. Pilot ( Dan) and his assistant hands ( Rachel and Paul) were exceptional. Very professional throughout. The flight was magical and breath taking. Champagne at landing was a beautiful touch. Thank you again
What a fantastic, enthralling, calm, relaxed but also exciting experience. My Son bought us this for my birthday in July but only got around to doing it yesterday 11th october. The day was perfect, light winds sunshine. We took off at 4.20pm and went southeast over bath. What t a fabulous city!. Views spectacular, got to 2000feet. Abey, churches, parks, even allotments, railway all clearly visible, Royal York Crescent. Mike the pilot with 28 years flying experience gave us such a good ride, being very safety conscious, knowledgeable. The landing at Limpley Stoke by the side of Brass knocker Hill into a field of lush grass was barely noticeable. Top marks to Mike and his two man team. Alexander and I (Claire) thoroughly enjoyed our afternoon, topped it off with Tapas at Comptoir in Bath. Such a wonderful time had by all. Highly recommended.
Finally managed to get this ride in after bad weather and then covid, Baileys we’re very accommodating letting us extend it. We’d travelled down from Leeds with fingers and toes crossed and luckily the weather gods smiled on us this time. On an early morning flight you should be able to get a free parking space on Weston Road a short walk from the meet point. The team were very friendly and got us involved in assembling and later putting away the balloon. The whole thing took around 4 hours with a 45 min flight. We had cracking views of Bath, Bath Uni and the countryside, the sun came out just as we rose above the Royal Crescent and the steam fair being there was another great photo opportunity. You’re at the will of the weather, we ended up halfway between Box and Bradford-u-Avon then needed to wait for farmers permission to drive into the field to collect us but we were kept busy with chatter and champagne/orange juice and then putting away the balloon. A go-pro was hoisted out to take pictures which could be purchased on a memory stick for £20. Take off and landing were very smooth, Mike, our pilot, was very chatty pointing out points of interest and answering questions. Loved it, would definitely recommend just be prepared that the weather may mean rebooking and block out enough time for it.
What an amazing flight we had on Sunday! We flew from the centre of Bath up into the surrounding countryside. All COVID-19 precautions followed during the flight and it did not detract from the experience at all. Crew and pilots very attentive and knowledgeable too. It was amazingly serene as we floated peacefully above the city. Great views too. Absolutely fantastic!
This was the most amazing experience in my life, i was a little nervous at the start but its so calming once you get up in the sky. Mike the pilot was very experienced and gave me lots of information about the flight. I also proposed toby partner and she said yes, it was a wonderful experience that will never be forgotten. I can't recommend Bailey balloons enough , thanks guys for everything.
