Had a great trip with sundance. The pilot was very good. Left from Buena Vista park, went through the river valley and had a great view of downtown. Would highly recommend.

We got there before the workers did, and stood around waiting for 45 min before actually taking off. I believe the balloon and everything should be out of the truck and prepared before everyone gets there! Other than that it was enjoyable.More

The ride was very smooth and relaxing. The pilots were very knowledgeable about the history and workings of hot air balloons, which made it a fun learning experience as well.

We are sorry to hear that the balloon ride was not up to your expectation. A 1 1/2 hour flight is actually a very long flight as most of the flights average approximately 1 hour in length. The landings can be bumpy at times which...More
