The Golden Eagle balloon ride was one of the highlights of our Myanmar trip, albeit the most expensive we had on the roundtrip. We do not regret a single cent. :) We climbed into the air with pilot Nick. We recommend. We were incredibly lucky with the weather. After 1:10 hrs over the pagoda landscape, we landed gently on a wide sandbank in the middle of the Irrawaddy (were the first in the season), where we first with a glass of sparkling wine, then by boat back to the mainland were driven back , An unplanned add-on and thus priceless :).
The balloon ride was unique and was worth it. Golden Eagle is highly recommended! Thank you for an unforgettable experience in beautiful Bagan.
Greetings of the day and Happy New year to you and your team. I would like to thank you for arranging a wonderful holiday for us at Myanmar. The guides and drivers were very good. We liked the way you arranged everything almost perfect for us and appreciate your way of handling the situation. We enjoyed our stay there and will look forward to enjoy your hospitality again.
Just want to thank your tour guide, not only for giving us a very well informed trip around Yangon, but also for their honesty. My daughter left her red-colored bag in the bus, and to our surprise, our hotel informed us that your agency called to check if we are missing a red-colored bag! Thank you so much - the bag meant a lot to her :)
Thank you for arranging a delightful ballooning trip for us. We really enjoyed the sights of Bagan. My gf and I had a very fun time & we find the crew to be extremely good in what they do.
My friends & I are first time in Myanmar. Thank you for arranging a lovely time for us. Your staff were very good & took care of all our needs very well!
Thank you for a wonderful tour experience that your company has set up for me & my family!
My family really enjoyed ourselves. Thank you & we will recommend your company to our friends!
This is a relatively new company with baskets taking 8 or 4. Their pilots are first class, ours Lea (Swiss) competes in ballooning championships, she was amazing the way she manoeuvred the balloon so everyone had a good view of the temples and stupas. She even lowered the balloon to within a metre of the river bank. We stayed up for an hour and a quarter as the conditions were perfect. The landing was the smoothest I have ever experienced. When looking at the price it appears to be expensiv, but
Thank you for your professionalism
"We flew yesterday with "Golden Eagle Ballooning" over the temples of Bagan and it was a great experience. I cannot recommend them more: professional and extremely friendly staff, our pilot Urs was exceptional (answered all our questions enthusiastically abd took really good care of us)... and we had a bonus - as we were only 3 persons (one balloon), we flew in a 4 place basket, which was a surprise.
We would like to thank all of the Golden Express team for your assistance in arranging our visit in November. Everything went very smoothly and we had a wonderful time. This was our sixth visit - Myanmar has become our second home! We are already planning our next visit and look forward to working with the Golden Express team to arrange another interesting and diverse itinerary.
It was a wonderful experience for all of us and the support, insight and guidance provided by Golden Express and the team was truly outstanding. Each of the guides and drivers were extremely knowledgeable and very willing to share their own stories and experiences.
