Do you know someone who has dreamed of riding in in a hot air balloon? This unforgettable high flying experience  over the London is the perfect experience gift!

The adventure begins when you meet with your pilot, crew and fellow passengers. Once the hot air balloon is inflated, you’ll climb into the basket and let the pilot and wind direct you. The balloon will gradually ascend above the treetops. Watch the world unfold below you as you float peacefully overhead. As you gently fly through the sky without the sensation of wind, it will feel like a dream. The only sound you’ll hear is the pilot opening the burner to fly even higher!

As your flight nears its end, your hot air balloon will begin descending back down to earth and you’ll celebrate your adventure with a champagne toast.
