  • The highlight of my stay in Bagan! Book directly with them as the hotels appear to add a handling fee. I was in a cabin for 16 people - subdivided in four corners - their standard trip and we had sufficient space and a lot of fun! Pre-flight there is coffee and tea and a very clear instruction on what to do and not to do. Up in the air, our pilot, Mike, pointed out sights, told us about the history of hot air ballooning in Bagan - they started it 20 years ago - as well as their impact on the local community. Even though the season only last for 6 months per year their local staff of 200 is employed and paid throughout the year. The landing was as smooth as butter and after the flight we had drinks, croissants and cake. At the time of this review they are also offering a promotion of another hot air ballon flight at Inle Lake, much higher up at 8-10 thousand feet, at a reduced price.
  • Safe. Experts. Once in a life time experience. Would recommend to splurge on the VIP package. If you're going to pay already that much for the balloon ride might as well go all the way. VIP price includes: - pick up and drop back at your hotel in a really cool old bus, - coffee/tea at arrival while waiting for things to be setup, - experienced pilots (with over +1000hours of flight) - 8 people in the balloon (VIP package) or 16 people (normal price). Sometimes when there's not a lot of people you can pay normal price and get less then 16 people. - VIP package highlight is the breakfast set up in the field. At the landing of the hot balloon the staff set up a breakfast table with champagne (more than one glass per person) and fresh juice of the season. One croissant and 2 eggs per person with some cheese (truffle Brie) and Iberico Ham on the table. Some photos are taken by the gopro attached to each hot-air balloons and available on the website for free. Overall great service. Would definitely recommend Ballons over Bagan service for their professionalism, great attention to safety measures, knowledge of the local landscape, and most importantly effort put towards the local community. They invest a lot in the local communities since 20 years now.
