Thank you James and your team for a fantastic balloon ride. My husband and I were celebrating the Marine Corps birthday along with 10 others who celebrated anniversaries and birthdays. Two other balloons were flying on either side of us and it was just a breathtaking experience. James is a professional pilot of 20 years and loves his job. He... More

This trip was beyond what I expected and more. From the Admin Assistant Renee to the Perfect Pilot James and his very hard working Assistant, this company can teach other company's what true Customer service, adventure, and a nice clean trust worthy balloon really is! Don't go to any other ballooning company, that is RUDE, old Patched up balloon, and... More

A birthday surprise from my girlfriend. Turned into one of the best days of my life. I have never experienced a balloon ride before. I do have to say everyone needs to call sky's the limit and go for a balloon ride you will NOT be disappointed at all. The owners and employees of the company are all so kind... More

Our party of eight was a little nervous to get there, but James and Eric gave us the very best experience possible--awesome! The guys in our group even got to help and experience the thrill of setting up a balloon, something they can brag about. It was truly a beautiful experience, one I would do over and over. We even...

I did this balloon ride a couple months ago. It was a great trip. They are located in in the midst of rolling estates in Santa Barbara. James is a great guide, and very obviously a great pilot (He's done crazy stuff like fly over Mt Kiliminjaro, I think) The balloon ride itself was very comfortable (nicely cushioned basket) as...

There aren't any groupon deals for this company, but for the little extra cash, it's well worth the experience. Their balloon cart looked super new/clean, and was very comfortable and cushioned. Our flyer knew exactly where to to go, and pointed out some choice scenery (and when every house below you has it's own tennis court, there is much to... More

My sister and I did the hot air balloon ride and it was the perfect ending to a great trip! I am afraid of heights, but the hot air balloon ride is so gentle that I don't have any fear while on the ride. Pete, the pilot, described as a "sensation of no sensation" and he is absolutely right! It... More

I wanted to do something different, fun, romantic and close to home that I would always remember for my big Bday and the sunrise trip over Santa Ynez and Santa Barbara with James was fabulous! He and staff were friendly and knowledgable and gave us a memorable experience for life! They had lovely champagne/snacks outside after our flight.. I highly... More
