It was already our second balloon ride (but at completely different locations) with the provider and it was - as with the first balloon ride - just top! A balloon ride is always a unique experience for all involved :-) Everything worked out fine, even the weather was kind to us :-) We felt well taken care of by Nils and his team and there were no difficulties at all in making an appointment. Of course, you need a certain degree of flexibility when making an appointment: this is due to the short-term weather change or the daily changing weather forecast, to which the provider must respond accordingly to take no risk. The price is unfortunately high for all balloon flight companies, but it is and remains a unique experience which you remember with pleasure :-) The cup as a souvenir should also be kept "after Corona" :-) Should the opportunity arise, we will certainly book again with this provider: it was a great experience and was a lot of fun :-) The atmosphere in the 4 or 6 balloon is just gigantic
I am sorry that the conclusion was not to your full satisfaction. In times of Corona we are glad that we were able to offer a drink after the balloon flight in 2021, because in 20020 this was not possible. I do not know what was not motivating, I would like to ask you about it.
On the subject of balloon baptism: I have been a balloon pilot for over 25 years now and we decided about 5 years ago to abolish the balloon baptism with certificate. This resulted from the opinions and reactions of previous passengers. Many thought it was unnecessary and even "embarrassing", certificates were "forgotten" in the bus, etc. - this is meanwhile also my fullest opinion that this procedure with lighting hair, tipping champagne and smearing earth on the head is no longer up-to-date. We have also removed the balloon baptism from all descriptions, so you were expecting something that is no longer part of the scope of our offer. I'm sorry to hear that you were expecting the balloon baptism. Nevertheless, I hope that at least the balloon ride was nice for you!
