One of the best things we've ever done. It's hard to describe the moment. The way the crew deal with the whole process just help us to relax and enjoy the ride. I strongly recommend.

Teri, Thank you for your feedback. Too much information is always awkward! I'll discuss your comments with all our flight crew to make sure they are performing to our standards. Unlike other professional pilots that never interact with passengers, balloon pilots must also act as...More

My wife and I have been on other balloon rides, and this company was particularly impressive for a few reasons: 1) Overall professionalism. The check in process was smooth, and they had nice vans available to bring everyone to the launch site. Everything was great...More

Thank you David. Our flights are spectacular because of our guests. We aren't the easiest balloon company to find online or the cheapest. Real shoppers tend to fly with us. We appreciate the kind words. I'll pass them along to Phil and our staff.

Ira, Thank you for flying with us. Although the ride is about 1 hour, the entire experience is at least 3 hours. The reason is balloon companies don't know where they will launch the balloon prior to the balloon ride. The only thing consistent is...More
