I booked this trip to celebrate our 10th wedding anniversary. Going in a hot air balloon has always been on the bucket list so we booked the trip and went. Hands down this was such a great time. Not only the balloon ride but the crew working. We rode the bus to the location and not a minute went by... More

The staff of Colorado Hot Air Balloons was top notch from the reservation process, Pick-Up for transportation to/from the launch site. Breakfast was tremendous as was the Champagne/Mimosa toast which was given when Tommy recited the Balloonists prayer after the... More

This was one of the coolest things I have ever done. it was a gentle lift off and extremely pleasant. The team was fun and knowledgeable. The pilot was also terrific and explained in detail all we were about to embark upon. Well worth the money & time!!!

Billy and his crew impressed me with their knowledge and experience. We were confident that their skills would offer us a breathtaking experience, and they did. Billy made us comfortable from the moment we arrived at our launch location. During the flight he gave us a thorough understanding of the effects of wind direction and altitude on our balloon. Lift-off... More

This is with other people, but the host was very good at breaking the ice between everyone. Me and my husband weren't in... More

We went on our first balloon ride on Friday 8/8/14 and I can't come up with the words to express how incredible this experience is. This operation is top notch - the crew and pilot were very engaging and made us feel very comfortable. They were very professional, informative and seemed to genuinely enjoy what they were doing. Great people,... More
