This review is coming from a man deathly afraid of heights. I faced my fear with Globo and the experience could not have been better. Calm professional and sympathetic staff made the whole morning so amazing and the 4 star breakfast was a bonus. Thank you Globo.

Everything was top notch! Our pilot, Odin Aragon, made my very nervous husband feel so comfortable. The views were spectacular! Breakfast after at the Rosewood hotel completed a perfect morning. I would highly recommend.

We watched the sunrise while riding in a hot air balloon over one of the most picturesque baroque cities in the world! Awesome ride, spectacular view.

Fantastic experience. Very professional crew and our Capitan Gretchen Kimball was excellent. San Miguel is beautiful and I cannot image a better way to see this gem in the Sierra Nevada's. Great time highly recommend!

I book the hot air balloon for two reasons...to get over my fear of heights and to cross it off my bucket list. I succeeded on both counts. We were met early in the morning exactly on time and taken to the area where we watched them unload and set up the balloon. The set up was an exciting part... More

The most important thing you should know is that only Globo is allowed to fly over San Miguel itself. It looks to me like the previous review was from one of the companies that couldn't fly over San Miguel due to problems. Our pilot, Gretchen (who spoke excellent English) and her crew were extremely professional; she has 21 years of... More

Hello, Sorry for the delay in response to your review. I'm sorry you had a bad experience, however it was not our company that you flew with. All my employees speak a conversational level of English and all my pilots are fluent in English and Spanish. There are several ballon companies in San Miguel and we have had this problem... More

My husband and I are visiting San Miguel. I wanted to surprise him with something he'd never expect! We thoroughly enjoyed our ride. Jay was an expert at putting the balloon in exactly the right spot so everyone on board could see all there was to see. We opted for breakfast at Rosewood, opulent and tasty. I would have preferred... More

Fortunately we attempted to schedule the ballooning experience at the beginning of our stay in SMA. Due to safety precautions (windy conditions) two of the mornings proved to be unsuitable for the ride. However, yesterday, we had a fabulous experience with Gretchen, our very competent and cordial pilot. The ride was quiet, gentle, and a beautiful way to glide over... More
