My daughter, as beautiful as the the day itself, surprised me with a trip to Colorado. She had planned the balloon ride in advance. The wind was an issue on the day we were scheduled to fly, but finally on the day to leave Colorado, Jeff our pilot had the right winds (or lack of) to take us up. We... More

This was the best flight of my life. Beautiful. .peaceful. .and so much more. Ed was our very capable pilot. .he was good to keep us informed but quiet enough to allow us the serenity of the flight. Would do it again and again if I could!

Loved it! An amazing experience from the start with the beautiful sunrise and watching the set up to the breathtaking ride in the skies and the landing. The staff were all friendly, informative, and so much fun. The couple next to us proposed at the mile high mark too just to add to the excitement. This was our 40th anniversary... More

Jeff and the staff at Fair Winds were terrific. Fun to be with. Knowledgeable. Professional. You get to watch the preparation before and after the flight as well as enjoying the flight itself. Included pre-flight were some pastries and coffee. Post flight we received a bag of local info, photos, tee shirts and champagne. Our family of four had a... More

The crew was very professional. The arrival experience and flight were a pleasure. We had to wait for a short period of time for the weather to clear. We were able to help inflate the balloon and were able to get some good pictures. The pilot was very good and able to go pretty much where he wanted. The flight... More

I agree with all the wonderful things said in the other 5-star reviews. This is a first-class operation: friendly, professional and customer-oriented. I scheduled my first flight in honor of my 60th birthday, but when the day came there was a lot of smoke blowing over the state from the western wild fires. Jeff said that although it was safe...

I received a hot air balloon ride for my 70th birthday from my children. We arrived at 6:45 am and were greeted by Rose, who promptly offered us coffee, orange juice and our choice of home-made sweets. Then Jeff joked with us while he worked quickly to get us airborne. Once aloft Jeff joked with us while pointing out points... More

So glad we chose Fair Winds, Jeff and his team were so professional. Every part was so well organised and they made sure everyone was having a good time. Seeing the balloon inflate and deflate was all part of an amazing experience. My husband even got to help out!
