Customer Testimonials

June 4th, 2014

Welcome to our customer testimonial page. Please take the time to read what other people think about us and ballooning in general!


It was a fantastic experience and have mentioned this to our friends.  Jon the pilot explained in great detail what to expect which was lovely.  Yesterday I visited some friends of ours and we viewed the photos from their laptop.  Their son thought it was great.

I have taken lots of photos (off course).  My husband took photos of the balloon from the ground.  I believe Jon said the height which we flew was 1 mile. I have lots of photos of the children in the basket which is amusing.  I am sure they will mention their adventure at school – they were so excited.  When my husband is able to, we will e-mail some photos to yourselves.

Please say thank you to Jon.

Bye for now.

Dear John,
Just a quick email to thank you and all the team for our fantastic flight yesterday afternoon. Joanne (Charlton) and I really enjoyed it and it was well worth the wait, it has been a while since we enjoyed ourselves so much.

We have told all our friends about it and have said we would love to do it again next year.

Thanks again

Steve and Jo


Just a quick note to say very many thanks for a great afternoon on Thursday.

You really made it so very enjoyable.  It was clear that you were enjoying yourself as well as being ‘at work’.  Thanks for being so open and chatty with us all, almost as if it was a novel experience for you too – which it clearly WASN’T !

Val and I both enjoyed the flight very much and are glad that we chose to come with Wickers World and had the pleasure of flying with you.  The fact that Adam was able to join in at the last minute added a special bonus.

Thanks again.  We shall have no hesitation in recommending you to anyone who wants to know about ballooning.

Best wishes,

Dave and Val Taylor


Thank you for such a wonderful experience! An experience that we will cherish forever. We arrived at Shugborough Hall and were immediately put at ease by the professionalism that the team conveyed. The flight was truly breathtaking, words cannot begin to explain how beautiful the world looks whilst silently floating above it. A big thank you to the team and hope to see you all again soon.

Chris McDonald


WOW! (Wonder of Wickers!)

Thank you so much for a fab flight yesterday morning. The professionalism, passion and knowledge of everyone in the team that we encountered was unsurpassed. You made it a truly memorable event, that we have still haven’t stopped telling others about!

Look forward to taking a further flight with yourselves in the near future.

Mr G Turner


Thank you all very very much for a fantastic balloon flight last Sunday morning at Dearnford Lakes. My wife Sally actually had a brandy and lemonade at 5am last Sunday and another as we arrived at the location because she was that worried.

No need at all with Kevin the pilot and the two guys who were with him putting her at ease straight away. I was drafted in at the last minute to replace my wife’s friend Melanie who could not make it and was not totally convinced I wanted to do this myself.

But it was a remarkable experience that was enjoyed by Sally, her mother Josie and myself on an absolutely stunning morning over Shropshire. Thank you all again so much for making our day certainly one to remember for the rest of our lives. Absolutely Brilliant.

Mr & Mrs Bebbington


Thank you for a wonderful flight, and absolutely superb experience, from Shugborough this morning. We were delighted by every aspect of our adventure!

Mr Steer


Just wanted to send a quick note of thanks to all the Derbyshire team that made our balloon flight on the morning of the 1st september so fantastic.
The flight was a birthday present for my mum for her 60th & both of us had an amazing time.

L Gardener


My daughter, Paige, and I flew with you last evening. We both would like to thank you for the experience. The take off and landing were smooth and we felt absolutely secure the whole time. The views from the sky were stunning and the commentary from our Pilot, Graham, were really helpful.
All in all a wonderful experience, even down to repacking the balloon etc on landing! We’d certainly recommend you to others

Mr Edwards


I just wanted to drop you a little line to say a big “THANK YOU” for making my auntie’s (Beryl Blood) flight yesterday afternoon the most wonderful experience she has ever had in her 80 years! She was so worried about so many things, but the pilot and groundsmen put her at ease straight away and she had the most thrilling time.

Mr Sketchley


I just wanted to thank you for such a wonderful  experience my mum and daughters loved every moment, it was perfect a very professional service  from begining to end.

N Harris


At first I was apprenhensive due to my fear heights but it was absolutely fabulous. I can’t wait to do it again, it exceeded all expectations. Flying in the Autumn was great, the colours and the context of the landscape were fantastic.

I can’t wait to do it again and I think i’m going to go for a cold frosty morning. I would highly recommend the company and the experience to anyone.

Mr Wilcox


Thank you from the bottom of our hearts, we would not know where to start to tell you how happy you made him, He well never forget the experience. You are all very kind, once more, many thanks.

Mr and Mrs Stafford


Just wanted to say a massive thank you for yesterday, the flight was fantastic. Even though we had one flight cancelled due to the weather it turned out that a winter flight was worth waiting for.

Mr Parsons


It had always been an ambition for my husband to do a balloon flight. I have to admit that I was very nervous as I don’t like heights. I can honestly say that I never had a moment of fear from the time we set off.

Mrs Talbot


Hi I would like to say a big thank you to everyone who was working with the balloon flight yesterday morning from Pitchcroft Worcester, my Dad and I had an amazing time! The text message I received from you on Friday afternoon saying great weather and spaces available is a great service and brilliant reminder.

Miss Martin


A truly memorable experience for both of us and will always be part of the memory bank.

Mrs Edgington


What a fantastic flight. (Still waiting to come back down to earth!)

Mr and Mrs Bain


I would like to thank you for a wonderful experience on that day and the photograph is simply amazing.

Mr and Mrs Branington


Thank you so much for a really enjoyable experience this morning.
Both my friend, Ruth and I had a terrific time and the pilot and the crew were such nice people, it made it all the more fun.

Mrs Hannasford


We were most impressed with the whole professional operation of the team, and will certainly recommend you to others.

Mr and Mrs Hemming


Being a nervous passenger the friendly and professional way in which Wickers World handled the flight was very reassuring.

Mr Stephens
