What an amazing way to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary! We were lucky enough to go up with other balloons in the air at the same time as they were there for the glow festival! Nick and the crew were amazing! Watching the sunrise while peacefully floating was magical. We all got to help set up and pack down the balloon and the whole experience was topped off with champagne, fruit and muffins. I highly recommend Ballooning Canterbury - this is an experience everyone should do at least once! You won't regret it!

My husband bought me and the kids a flight for my birthday, it did not disappoint. Mike and his crew were incredibly professional from the start, we were all involved in the setting up and packing up which made it feel more personal. The flight was filled with stunning views and made all the more special by having other balloons in the air as well. Finishing off with some morning tea a glass of champagne and the balloonists prayer... Thankyou for an unforgettable experience 🥰

What an amazing experience! Michael & the crew were helpful & informative. The views were amazing made even better by the fact there were other balloons in the air as part of the Glow Festival. I loved gliding over the beautiful Canterbury countryside with wonderful autumn colours. I would highly recommend this experience to everyone young & old.

Such a brilliant way to get a high! Watching sunrise paint her way into the day as we floated over the Canterbury Plains was magical. To be recommended to anyone.
