  • Very good experience with this company and it was a fair price. Did the sunrise ride and while it was dark initially, it was great scenery when it got lighter.The crew made it fun and had a delightful sense of dry humor. While in the air, informative discussions about the area took place. When ride was over, there was champagne and pastry's which was a nice touch.
    For those who have never done a balloon ride and are skeptical, this ride is for you because its not too wild. I would take anyone on this ride
    While it may sound strange to recommend bringing a hat, if you happen to be positioned in the small basket area under the flame which does not have a heat shield , the top of your head really heats up and protection might be nice.

  • I was so apprehensive at the thought of going up in a balloon. And then we arrived and I met the pilot and chase crew and all my fear disappeared. They were professional and funny and very clear with their instructions. The day was beautiful and the ride was amazing.

  • Started the early morning helping them setup the balloon with their guides. Picture perfect weather and I was with a father/daughter and of course the balloon operator. We had a great climb to about 3200 feet and there were other balloons in the air as well. This is my second time in a hot air balloon and I just loved it.

  • WE had a great time, the company let us add 2 people at 7 day window, we enjoyed the trip and the bucket list has one more item crossed off. Recommend this company for anyone trying a ride. PS don't go in the evening until winter, the winds too strong until then! Ask questions too

  • A beautiful trip lots of beautiful scenery and a excellent pilot and very friendly and knowledgeable about the area! The only thing after the landing it took a while to get back due to the van getting stuck and we didn’t receive are certificate that where advertised!
