This is the second time my fiancé and I have been ballooning with Chris and we’ve had an excellent experience both times. The champagne breakfast beautifully finishes an exceptional morning. I would definitely recommend going ballooning and doing it with Balloon Man.

Although all the balloon companies appear to be independent, they all do seem to cooperate with each other. They fly from the same launch area, at the same time, are in constant radio contact with each other and land at the same landing site. Therefore,...More
