Munya from Purchasing, July 2018
This was my first time flying in a hot air balloon and I must say, I thoroughly enjoyed it! We arrived at the crack of dawn and were welcomed by the friendly team at Virgin Balloon flights.
As part of my experience I helped them to inflate the balloon which was quite exciting, believe it or not! Before we took off, we were given a safety briefing and then our flight commenced. Once we were in the air, everything on the ground became smaller and the views we had were breathtaking! We had the sun rising in the background as well to add to what was a beautiful day.
During the flight, our pilot provided us with a guide tour from above which I thought was educational and went hand in hand with the experience. When we landed, we were treated to a nice chilled glass of champagne which went down a treat!
Overall I would recommend this experience for everyone, especially couples because the memories you take away are unforgettable. I certainly would want to do this again!
Depending on what the weather is like on the day, try not to wear too many layers because the burners in the balloon will certainly keep you warm!
