Three Rainbow balloons took off close to each other so photo opportunities of balloons taking off, in the air, etc were excellent. All pilots took the balloons through a series of altitude climbs...

Fantastic people to do business with. Our pilot, Mark, was very kind, experienced, and educated. The whole crew were friendly people who were all very happy to assist us.

Getting my Mom and Auntie up in a hot air balloon was a day I'll never forget. This trip couldn't have been more perfect. Smooth sailing, fantastic views and a very personable and entertaining captain. The ground crew was equally impressive with their quick set up and pack up precision. We were well taken care of and highly recommend Rainbow... More

Finishing with champagne and fresh muffins... Great pilot great fun crew. Best bucket list experience! Thanks guys

Craig is a well seasoned pilot and was able to easily maneuver this gorgeous ballon. He highlighted all the area mountains and was all about knowing his guests want great photos. The chase crew was right on time to pick us up! Highly recommended to anyone in the area.
