    What a fantastic experience. All the staff involved were amazing! So friendly and inviting, they done everything they could to make this experience as special as possible. At first I questioned the price but I can honestly say i would pay double for that level of service and experience. All the staff were great but a special mention for Maria who went above and beyond to accommodate us and planned everything so well. She had so many people to organise yet left me feeling like I was her only customer. 10/10, highly recommend!

    Absolutely Incredible. Sergei and His partner made the whole trip personal and enjoyable. Being able to set up and take down the hot air balloon was awesome. The ascent up through the clouds was absolutely magical and the breakfast/ brunch afterwards was delicious along with our certificates which made it extra personal and memorable. Highly recommend. Not forgetting the catamaran sun set cruise. Just wow out of this world so many activities to do onboard and off board including drinking, eating and I enjoyed the fishing the most. I will definitely be recommending it to friends and family
