For the third time with this great company and never dull or boring. Always good communication about latest meteo updates. Clear pre-flight briefing in french, dutch and if preferred, in english. Always fun to be involved in preparing the hot air balloon.

The hot air baloon ride was a birthday gift to my husband and, after a first cancellation due to unfavorable weather conditions, we got to try it last Saturday. The flight takes around one hour but the whole experience takes longer, as it includes the preparation phase, putting everything away after the flight, and a glass of champagne to celebrate. It is a very nice experience, we had good visibility and the view was beautiful. It is very peaceful and quiet up there, nothing scary about it. Last Saturday there were two balloons - our pilot was Patrick and Benoit was piloting the other balloon. They seem very knowledgeable and in control, flying just over the trees was a fun bonus! They are professional and well equiped. I don't give 5 stars because we were expecting smaller groups - we were 10 people plus the pilot just in our ballon. The other group was even bigger. Moreover, everything is explained just in French and there was not much interaction with the pilots before take-off (also because we were so many). In this sense, it didn't feel very personal. Overall, we had a fun time and would like to repeat the experience elsewhere. Flying close to Brussels is okay but maybe we will try it during our next safari or visit to Asia!

I contacted Ben back in October of last year to arrange a balloon ride for 16 gentlemen over the Easter Bank Holiday weekend. We were visiting Brussels from London as part of my best friend’s stag party and I was looking for a special activity as part of the upcoming proceedings. Not only did Ben agree to fly before the official start of the ballooning season in order to accommodate us, but the professionalism, communication and standard of service received throughout by everyone at EBC was absolutely first class. It was without a doubt the highlight of the weekend and an unforgettable experience was had by all. Thank you, EBC!
