    My family and I decided to have a view from the top, on the beautiful hot air balloon. We started our journey in the early hours of the morning. It was quite exciting seeing the hot air balloon being inflated, but the magic was actually getting into the balloon and floating into the sky. Being one with the clouds was an unforgettable. We never wanted the journey to end. As we drew closer to landing, the water beneath us had a reflection of the balloon and this was a breath-taking sight.
    The entire crew was beyond friendly and this is definitely an experience none of us would ever forget.
    Neil from Live It was also very helpful and friendly throughout the process of purchasing the experience, so I would just like to say a heartfelt thanks for all your kind assistance.
    Thank you to all involved. Definitely worth the price.
