An excellent service. We were treated to beautiful views, the pilot was highly talented - the landing was outstanding! I've done a balloon ride before where we were treated to a light champagne breakfast afterwards, and with this one, it was a case of hop out of the basket quickly so the next flight of the morning's customers can get...

they said "ONE HOUR" balloon ride. but we were only in the air for 22 minutes before we descended. I chose the sunrise ride for the photos and with camera in hand I was excited. I read the warnings but went anyways. that was my biggest mistake. the van forgot to pick me up and they sent a tuk tuk... More

If you're in Vang Vieng it's hard not to see the hot air balloons overhead in the mornings and evenings. I didn't get an opportunity to try it during my first trip to Vang Vieng but added it to my itinerary for my return the following year. PROS: #1 It is pretty easy to secure a ride as I booked...

I really cannot explain how much I enjoyed the balloon ride. It was so picturesque and peaceful! The price is unbeatable when you compare it to the rest of the world and for that reason I think it's somewhere you can't afford to not balloon! It's a little chilly early in the morning so wrap up. You'll soon warm up... More

There are only two times to have a balloon ride a day, before sunrise and sunset. You may feel like it's expensive but compared to the price of other countries, it's cheap and worthwhile!! The only one problem was that it doesnt last long, only 30 minutes. But I enjoyed the spectacular scenery of Vangvieng and still have a vivid... More

Read the reviews on trip advisor so I felt prepared of what to expect! The tuktuk pick-up was ontime at 6am for our early flight, we were taken to the airfield and up we went. We spent approx 40 mins in the air with about 10/15 mins above the clouds, if it's bad weather your flight is rescheduled or refunded.... More

This was my first experience in a balloon. I was picked up, and returned, to my hotel. No worries. The staff was marvellous, helping me getting in and out of the basket. The scenery was beautiful and I highly recommend this experience to all.

I booked this through my guesthouse, opting to go with the sunrise view. The pickup was supposed to pick me up at 5.45am, but came at around 6am plus instead. Please bear in mind that the sun has already risen at this point (when i left my GH, it was already bright. could be due to the dry season?). Tuk... More
