Everything was going great until we were about to land. I was not prepared for what was going to happen next .The wind picked up as we were descending. The pilot said for everyone to brace themselves because we were coming in very fast The basket we were in hit the ground very hard and bounced and bounced again. We hit the ground so hard. The basket finally came to a stop on its side. We had to climb out on our side. It was a very scary experience. We were very glad not to be hurt. My friend had a bruised knee. We were all very shook up.

To be honest, I actually thought that these experiences are only available abroad, so when my friend told me about this experience available on Thrillophilia, I immediately booked it before we left for our trip to Goa. The price is definitely cheaper than what you would have had to pay abroad, but the quality of the hot air balloon and the crew was reassuring and safe! Above all, the views of Goa from above were just spectacular!

I was doing hot air balloon ride for first time. I was really scared from the start to the end. But with the support of my pilot, I could finish it successfully. Floating above Goa's beautiful beaches and the sea was a nice experience. Still, I feel the pricing can be much more reasonable. Thanks.
