what our guests are saying

  • I can’t say enough good things about our balloon ride early this morning. It was a beautiful day made even better by the care and concern shown by our captain and crew. From tending to those with nerves to providing detailed explanations to those who were curious, they really went above and beyond. Well worth the 4 am wake-up call!!

  • We had the privilege of experiencing a hot air balloon ride when we were in Arizona to celebrate our vow renewal last Fall. An amazing experience to say the least. The crew is very professional and safety conscious. We thoroughly enjoyed it. We thought it would be a one time experience, but we definitely want to do it again.
