My very first hot air ballooning experience was one to cherish. Jeff and his crew were efficient and professional throughout. He fulfilled any requests where possible such as rigging up a Go=Pro to capture all the views, fun and excitement. Participants were encouraged to assist in the inflation, deflation and storage of the balloons. We even had a team of... More

My daughter and I went ballooning with Jeff and his crew on August 20th. The weather couldn't have been better and the ride was spectacular. I generally have a fear of heights, but I never got the opportunity to be afraid because I was having such a wonderful time! The entire operation, from filling the balloon before takeoff to landing... More

I never write reviews but from making the reservation to the pilots to the support staff everyone helped make our experience great. The balloons were as beautiful as the views and we felt totally safe the entire time. They are truly professional and we have a new memory to cherish.

We started off very early in the morning because that is the best time for flying-and they only fly once a day. We were greeted by the staff with a continental breakfast and an explanation of what was going to happen to get us on our way. None of us in our group had ever taken a hot air balloon... More
