“Wonderful hot air balloon experience with Skybus Ballooning - loved every second & would recommend to anyone”
Review of Skybus Ballooning

Skybus Ballooning
Ranked #6 of 9 things to do in Headcorn
Attraction details
Reviewed 18 August 2016

The professionalism & experience (30 years flying hot air balloons all over the world) of Tony our pilot & Arni our recovery vehicle driver was immediately apparent - I would unhesitatingly recommend them. We arrived at 6pm (there is an aerodrome bar if you arrive early, tea/coffee etc) and left around 9.45pm. There were 6 passengers & we were all involved in unpacking, setting up and packing away the balloon, which felt like a privilege while we learned where the balloon had been made, colours chosen etc - great hands-on involvement made the whole experience very personal. The flight over The Weald in Kent was awesome, with landmarks pointed out and anecdotes shared. Onlookers waved from below & we watched a combine harvester still busy in the fields as the beautiful sunset slowly brought our time floating like a cloud to an end. We could really appreciated how beautiful England is with its patchwork of green & gold fields lined with hedgerows. There were plenty of photo opportunities & champagne on return with a chance to share experiences & hear a few entertaining stories! We flew on a glorious summer evening in August.

A wonderful 30th birthday present. Had to wait a while for some good English weather, but the company extended my voucher free of charge. Well worth it, stunning views, and great company. We were made to feel special with a glass of bubbles afterwards.
