What a fantastic experience! From beginning - booking and receiving instructions - to the end - packing away the balloon. Wicker's World made this such an effortless and enjoyable event.If you are anxious about flying then don't be put off. This is so relaxing, smooth and from 'lift off', you'll forget you are floating so far off the ground. John,... More

Absolutely enjoyed the afternoon from the beginning to the end, we were met and greeted with professionalism and smiles all round, Jon the pilot made everybody feel at ease even at 2000 feet. I think we were very fortunate with the wind direction to fly over some many house and places we knew, from parents houses to the church we... More

I had been given a voucher via Red Letter Days for a hot air balloon experience which was carried out by Wickers World. From the first telephone call to the end result there was nothing but fantastic service and friendly staff. On the day, (Whitchurch site) the pilot Jon and staff were fabulous, making everyone feel at ease which made... More

Finally got to take my balloon flight that I got for my 50th birthday back in March..... It was so worth the wait. From the moment I arrived I felt at ease with Jon and the crew, his sense of humour keeping us laughing despite giving us important information. The flight was amazing and so smooth.... The landing was brilliant... More

We had a fantastic balloon flight last Friday afternoon from Shugborough, everything about the whole experience, from receiving our vouchers, booking the date and to the end of the flight was undertaken with such care. The ground crew kept our family, including 2 young grandsons, informed of exactly what was happening throughout the flight. The whole experience was wonderful and... More

I was very nervous about going on this trip as I am not keen on flying but Jon and his ground crew put me at ease by inviting us into the field to get a close up off all the pre flight preparations. Jons good humoured banter as we sat in the basket awaiting take-off also helped calm me down... More

We took off from Tissington in gloriously warm summer sunshine (although it was the middle of autumn); we were very lucky. We arrived shortly before 2pm and found the pilot,... More
