This company was fabulous. The sunset ride was delightful as was the staff. We had great views and a smooth landing.

I can not speak highly enough of our experience. From the point of booking, to check in, to boarding and through the ride everything went exceptionally smooth. We booked our flight to coincide with the hot air balloon festivals mass ascension. To go up the sky with hundreds of other hot air balloons was beyond mesmerizing. The vantage point of the festival below was so worth it!! If you are thinking about it... Do it!!! It was such an amazing experience:)

This was a great experience. Launching as the sun rose, watching shadows being cast over the city 2000 feet below as the sun warms your face, floating in what seems a weightless state, fantastic. The pastries and mimosas after the landing were a blast.
