“My partner and I had been waiting for about a year for our flight with each time cancelled. We eventually got booked onto a morning flight in early September. After arriving we were greeted by our pilot, Russell Collins who explained the mornings activities. There were 11 of us flying that day and we were all going to be getting involved putting the balloon up and packing it away. Russell explained many people enjoy this and its good to get involved – he wasn’t wrong – it was almost as fun as the ride itself.
We took off and enjoyed a wonderful hour flying over the Cotswolds. Russell’s knowledge of both ballooning in general and the local area was fantastic. We lucked out with a beautiful day and the views were wonderful.
Our landing was much smoother than I had expected and we all set about putting the balloon away which was amusing to say the least. We were then picked up by a local taxi firm and taken back to our cars after some champaign. There was an opportunity to purchase a picture of the balloon basket mid flight which had been obtained by suspending a camera outside the balloon on ropes. The picture was a very reasonable £15.
Russell was an excellent pilot and host – we felt totally safe throughout the entire experience despite both being ballooning “virgins” and everything was explained very clearly.
If I had to make one tiny suggestion it would be to tell people before take off to take their money with them as there will be opportunity to purchase a picture at the end of the flight – we left our money in the car back at the take off site along with many others and so had to pay at a later date over the phone.
But all in all this is a very enjoyable, safe and fun experience I would recommend to anyone.”
