Ballooning was the highlights of our trip to Myanmar
, Feb 2020
My friend & I toured Yangon, Bagan, Inle Lake & Mandalay and two of the most memorable parts of our Myanmar trip was our balloon rides in Bagan and Inle lake. Ballooning is a peaceful & beautiful way to see the amazing sites around both regions. Moses, our captain in Bagan was personable and very knowledgeable about the area. Shaun who was our captain in Inle was also very fun and knowledgeable and we go to experience a touch & go boat landing on the lake which was a thrill! You will not regret ballooning over Bagan & Inle! Thank you!!!
Amazing Bagan Experience

Exceptional morning in the sky! The whole arrangement was very professional and we spent a lot of time in the sky over Bagan. The group was electric and very welcoming. Fantastic photos captured
A bucket list experience!

Wow! This was an amazing adventure. It was my first time in a balloon, but Balloons Over Bagan did not disappoint. This company had been strongly recommended to me above the growing competition of ballon companies in Bagan and I'm glad I listened to the advice. The staff were great and our pilot was a wonderful guide to this experience. If you are going to Bagan, you can't miss this!

Great views to Bagan Pagodas, a very good explanation from the guide in english. We had a great moment and awesome pictures!
Great Experience, but some suggestions:
, Jan 2019
Overall Balloon ride was a very interesting experience, from boarding to landing. I am scared of heights but I was so much in awe of the way the balloon softly took off and landed, and the professionalism of the pilot was superb. However, the 'champagne breakfast' was disappointing. Not at all what I expected. Yes, the champagne was good, but for the price of $350 per person, I would expect white tablecloths and chairs to complete the experience.
Rather expensive but well worth...

Rather expensive but well worth it. Extremely well organised with experienced Belgium pilot, Christophe, so felt in completely safe hands. We were fortunate that conditions on the day allowed a long flight 1.5 hrsover the main temple region at a maximum altitude of 1100ft. However, customers should be aware that weather/wind conditions can affect the flight time and direction. The experience finished with champagne and croissants and a chance to chat with the pilot before being taken back to our hotel in the vintage bus.
