We tried a ballooning company even without knowing anything about them. We were so very pleased with our experience! We were treated very well from the moment the ballooning company arrived until we left. All the crew was very experienced but none more than the pilot. He explained what we were about to do and took us on a wonderful... More

The whole experience was just great! Starting with the reservation process.. Jeff, who booked our reservation, is an entertainer and a enthusiast. He really makes you believe that you will have a great time... and you do! They received us with a simple breakfast and let us be part of the inflation of the balloons. The ride was graceful and...

Although I have lived in Colorado for 37 years I had never seen the front range from a Balloon. Jeff and his team could not have created a better experience. They not only made sure they knew everyone by name before we launched, by the time the morning was over it felt like one big family. The entire staff was... More

The staff here are super nice! Our captain, Jeff, was totally great and made everyone feel welcome. The views were breath taking and we received a bottle of champagne to top it off!

Every part of the experience was great. The Fair Winds staff did a great job letting us know what to expect when we booked our reservations. When we arrived, they had breakfast for everyone. Passengers were allowed to help inflate the balloons. We had a balloon ride of more than an hour and the views were spectacular. Our pilot pointed... More

My Wife and 3 kids all under 12 had a great time aboard the Balloon. Everything was top-notch from the pre-flight call from Jeff to the post-flight debrief. We arrived a little earlier than the 0600 report time because we'd never been to the location. We found it easily and waited for the rest of the passengers to arrive. They... More

My wife and I celebrated our 30 year wedding anniversary by taking a ride with Fair Winds. What an amazing ride.

Jeff was a great host and David, our pilot, made the trip one we will... More

These guys are the best! You couldn't ask for a better group of people. I booked the flight with Jeff but was so busy I forgot to check in. No problem at all. He answered the phone that night. The pilot Ed was very good and the ride was something we wont forget. It has been a week and my... More

I booked a flight with Fair Winds for my daughter's 19th birthday. I could not have been happier with the professional contact I had in the weeks / days before the day of the flight. All of my questions were answered, there was follow up as promised, directions were given, and they went above and beyond my expectations on the... More
