Book this in advance as they have 2 balloons with total capacity of 18 guests. Price USD 100 per person but if you lucky an agent may offer you USD 90 per person. The balloon company will come to pick you and drop you back at the hotel after the flight. Both the captains are Chinese and well experienced. Beautiful... More

My first ever hot air balloon trip. Well organised with an on time pick up from the hotel. Great view flying over the Bayon temple at about 1,000 feet. Landing very efficient and pick and drive back to the hotel went smoothly. Highly recommended.

A hot air balloon ride had been on my boyfriend's bucket list for awhile, but after reading the reviews I was slightly suspect... Still, we went and actually had a wonderful time!

How many people would like to say that ‘I went hot air ballooning over Cambodian temples at a 1000 feet”. My wife and I took the sunset air cruise lasting over one hour that was silent and at the whim of the light breeze. As a current pilot it is something of a rare experience, since it is so expensive... More

Had a nice ride for the duration for 30 mins but it was pretty packed with 8 to a basket. Driver was timely with the pick up and transport there was fairly comfortable. Only thing was that even though email confirmation states payment was to be made at picked up but someone came and tried to collect the fees 1... More

Took the sunrise tour this morning, but we were not able to see the actual sunrise as there were difficulties getting the balloon propped up due to the winds. When we finally did get up in the air it was a nice view of the country side on the outskirts of Siem Reap. Yes, we had the Chinese pilot, but... More

First. Read their website. Understand that it's not a balloon flight over Angkor Wat (that's not possible). This is a real Hot air balloon. It's flight has limited control, you just float with the breeze. If the weather isn't suitable it will be cancelled. Not the fault of the company, they are concerned about your safety. Now. This was an... More

My first hot air balloon ride and it was magical. Our pilot, with 21 years experience, piloted us over one of the temples and some quite beautiful landscape. However, the sunset was clearly the highlight. Also, quite reasonable at $100/person.

We arrived to see the wind sock lying limp. YEW! Up we go. The balloon was tethered to a winch. Being a former rigger, I personally checked it out for curiosity, from the condition of the winch rope right down to the high tensile shackles with rated load with split pins in the screw pin. 1st class condition & good...
