I booked this as a present for my wife, something she has always wanted to do. Me, on the other hand was not sure as I'm afraid of heights. Having been assured by the office staff when I booked it, I would be fine, it still did not alleviate my fears. But wow, I had no reason to be afraid,... More

Amazing experience. Jon was a great pilot and very informative. The flight was very smooth and a soft landing. I would recommend it for anyone. Will do it again one day.

Isn't this one thing we all need to do at least once in a lifetime. Was a gentle take off and calming serene flight over some beautiful countryside. The staff were all knowledgeable and competent. Lack of loo facilities had us heading for the nearest loos in town after the flight so just be aware.

Fantastic flight with Jon the owner. Very skilled pilot and very friendly, knowledgeable and above all entertaining. A fantastic evening of floating serenely over stunning scenery. Was great to get involved with the inflating and packing away also (not compulsory but all part of the fun). Can't wait to go again.

Just had the most amazing flight this evening from Tissington, Derbyshire. Our pilot Jon was extremely professional and very experienced. We were very lucky to get on the first date we chose and the weather couldn't have been kinder. I normally have a fear of heights and hate flying in planes but this was so different as everything happens slowly.... More

This morning at 7:00am we took off from Stratford upon Avon Race Course with Wickers World Ballo Flights and it was amazing. Jon the pilot was excellent going low over trees and fields then high above the clouds where we saw the sun shining and the shadows of the balloon in the clouds were break taking. Would definately recommend to... More

Hi. I had been treated to this balloon trip as a leaving present. They had found out it was on my wish list. I was unlucky that I had to book several times and it was cancelled due to weather conditions, but the wait was well worth i, and got infromed in time every time it was cancelled. I had... More

My daughter and I had the most fabulous experience yesterday, we set off into the sunshine leaving behind the waves and smiles of our family. Sailing towards the clouds was a magical experience made better by the expert pilot who safely navigated and gave us interesting information along the way. We could see for miles over glorious Derbyshire countryside bathed... More
