The balloon ride with our pilot Nick was great. Not only was everything super professional and smooth, but we also got a lot of information about the pagodas flown over and Myanmar. Nick also took the fear away from the fearful among us with his uncomplicated and funny manner. So everyone could enjoy the breathtaking view. Thanks to Golden Eagle and our crew for this unforgettable experience.

I liked everything: from picking up to driving back to the hotel. Everything was well organized, it started with a small breakfast and then watch the balloons get ready, climb in and drive off. It was mega strong, our pilot made a great landing with us. Since I'm very scared and I'm working on it, this was a great experience and I would do it again.
