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

Jeff and his personable chasers, Rosa and Jeremiah are first-rate. I had imagined it would be windy and a little scary but since you fly with the wind you don't feel it at all. In fact it gets pretty warm with the hot air coming down. And it's the opposite of scary; it's calming, relaxing and peaceful! I appreciated the... More

Our first booking was cancelled due to the weather, but Jeff (the owner) called me later that day to re-scedule. When we arrived that BEAUTIFUL Sunday morning, Jeff and his crew put my mind at ease..they were SOOO personable, respectful and informative.... More

Early morning meet up about 6a in Lafayette (just a short drive from Boulder, where I was staying). A little bit of a wait until some of the clouds burned off but well worth it for the view. Loved seeing the hot air balloons being set up & inflated (there were 6-7 balloons that launched that morning, so it was... More

Our whole family had a great hot air balloon ride on a lovely May morning. We started out at 6 am and saw the balloons inflate and had about an 1.5 hour float high above Boulder and the plains with excellent views of the mountains all the way to Pike's peak in the south and the Rocky Mountain National Park...
