My husband and I couldn't have been happier with our first hot air balloon experience. I surprised my husband with a flight for our 1 year wedding anniversary and Fair Winds made it such a wonderful surprise. The staff was absolutely amazing and it was so much fun to be able to participate in the process from beginning to end.... More

I took my husband on a hot air balloon ride for his 30th birthday, and it was incredible. Jeff was an excellent operator and made the ride interactive and fun. It was great to participate in blowing the balloon up and helping pack it up at the end. An unforgettable experience, and I would recommend this company without hesitation.

Due to a family emergency we had to cancel our trip at the last minute and Fair Winds was more than understanding of the situation. We can't wait to reschedule our trip to Colorado so we can experience all that Fair Winds has to offer. If they're as great in person as they were on the phone, we're in for... More

Fairwinds Balloon Flights is a great company....terrific customer service....you can tell they love what they do...and who wouldn't?! They get to go up in the air every day...as long as the weather and wind are good...and show tourists the beautiful Rocky mountains and Boulder area from way high up! Great for couples, families, teens. Might not work for children under... More

We enjoyed every part of our hot air balloon experience. The crew is friendly and welcoming. We felt safe throughout our ride and they had everything handled from take off to landing. Definitely a highlight of our trip to Colorado.

Going on a hot air balloon ride has been a life long dream. Even though my husband is afraid of heights, he surprised me with taking me on a hot air balloon ride with Fair Winds on our honeymoon. It was absolutely incredible. Every one was positive and upbeat and made it even more fun. My pilot was so knowledgeable... More

My parents thoroughly enjoyed this adventure. Superior customer service from start to finish. It was incredibly easy to book and payment wasn't taken until upon completion of the ride, so no hassle, no refunds/rescheduling etc. to worry about if there were weather issues. If you had to leave a voicemail, you got a prompt call back and they were very... More

Fair Winds in a very reputable company; I felt very safe. They have many extras including a variety of food pre-flight, a photograph of you in the balloon, a certificate of flying,recycling bag at the end which includes a t-shirt, lapel pin, and advertisements from area businesses. I gave it a 3 star rating because the scenery while in flight... More
