Nostalgia Ballooning provided us with a very memorable few early morning hours of serene floating in a balloon. Neither my husband nor I had ever gone up. I am afraid of heights. It was early--dawn. Lots to argue against it, really. But, oh my, what a great time we had! Smooth, calm, safe, relaxing, amazing. Chad as pilot, and Vicky... More

This was a great experience! From the initial phone call to the Champagne Nostalgia Balloon served after the ride the experience was exceptional. The service was friendly, engaging, and expert. The owner Chad, who was also our pilot always made us feel welcome, informed, and safe as did his crew. The balloon ride itself was beautiful, peaceful, calm, serene, and... More

My husband and I took our very first hot air balloon ride with Chad and his crew back on labor day weekend. Truly an unforgettable experience and worth every single penny. Priceless memories!!!

We had a great balloon ride! We enjoyed being part of the setup and take down of the balloon after we landed. Saw some wildlife and beautiful river and mountain views. My suggestion would be to book your balloon ride at the beginning of your vacation...then on the off chance you have bad weather, you'll have the best chance to... More

I can't express how wonderful our first ballooning experience was!!!! Chad, Vicki, and Mike are a great crew who make the adventure fun, extremely interpersonal, and memorable. The views are breathtaking and unmatched. I would recommend putting this at the top of your list of things to do in the area; you will not be disappointed!!!

My friend and I took a flight with Chad at the end of July and it was the first time either of us had ever been in a hot air balloon. Chad and his team set the balloon up and talked to us the whole time about the science of flying and he was very thorough in his safety briefing... More

Chad, the owner and pilot gave us a fantastic experience! He should be considered among the best of pilot's. He landed once on a very narrow road in surrounded by trees, a house, a gully and an escarpment with the most gentle touchdown you can get. His knowledge of ballooning and his safety record are exemplary. Vicky was fantastic too!... More
