Taking Your Tour To New Heights

Imagine cruising above the plains of the Serengeti watching the great migration, sharing a romantic panoramic vista of Paris’s Eiffel Tower or ascending to a bird’s eye view of the Pyramids – all from the basket of a hot air balloon!

Ideal for photographers, adventurers and anyone who’s ever wanted to fly, hot air balloons provide a unique outlook that simply isn’t available on the ground.  These classic voyages are entertaining, adventurous and often surreal.  Whether for special occasions, romantic proposals, airborne adventures or unique perspectives of the world, hot air balloons provide an unparalleled flight experience.  What you bring on your flight is up to you, the camera, the kids or maybe champagne!

The Kensington portfolio features a variety of private guided tours with balloon rides for travelers who want to take to the skies.  Soar above the rooftops of Paris, wildlife in the Masai Mara, the ancient temples of Angkor Wat, the magical cave city of Cappadocia, the beaches of Fiji, vineyards in Tuscany, snow capped mountains New Zealand, the rainforests of Costa Rica, deserts of Dubai and more. Hot air balloons capture the imagination, make your heart beat a little faster and each flight is a unique and enchanting voyage.  An absolute must on any traveler’s list of life experiences, these whimsical journeys will take your next holiday to a whole new height.
