We booked to depart from Tiverton on an early morning flight. However the evening before we were emailed to say the departure was from Exeter. This was due to a southerly wind sending us in an unsafe direction. It was a beautiful morning when we had a pre flight chat from Arthur, the Pilot. This included details on; safety and... More

This was a brilliant balloon flight done to a very professional but friendly standard. Everything was done on time and explained carefully. I felt completely safe at all times and had great fun. It was great to be involved in helping to get the balloon ready for flight and to help once pack away once landed. There was no pressure... More

I was treated to a balloon flight as a Xmas present complete with glass of champagne in flight! I was so lucky to get airborne on my first booking! Very happy! 😀 The organisation of getting airborne, the flight and landing were excellent! Hard to fault. But to be honest I was very disappointed not to receive the offer or... More

Once in a lifetime experience floating over beautiful countryside. Company seemed very disorganised and owners not good at customer care.

Myself and family clubbed together and bought 2 tickets for a balloon flight for my Grandad's 80th birthday! My Grandad chose to take me up with him around my 21st birthday so as to treat it as a joint present! What an amazing experience we had! We did have to book 3 separate occasions but when we finally flew it... More

I think my feelings about Aerosaurus are best expressed by repeating the contents of an email I sent them in response to their post flight message to me : Thank you for your post flight email which merely managed to make me even more dissatisfied with our experience with your company.

Thank you for your review and feedback of your experience. As ballooning is a very weather dependent activity, it can sometimes take a few attempts to get a successful flight. Because of this, our vouchers are sold in the form of a voucher which is valid for 12 months, giving the recipient plenty of time to take the flight. We... More

Can recommend this if you have never done it. Need to be patient though as it depends on the weather. Not cheap but certainly a well worthwhile one-off experience.
