Had a great Hot Air Balloon ride with 5 of us out of Breckenridge CO. We actually drove to the launch site from the Conifer area up Hwy 285 early in the morning, weather did not cooperate as the grounds winds made it dangerous, but we got breakfast served and luckily had room for us the next day as they...

One of the best experiences in CO. Got the premium package and it included the ride to the launch site, champagne and breakfast. Eric, our driver, was well versed and full of antidotes that made the ride to the launch site humorous and informational. The views were spectacular and we got to see bison and antelopes. Tommy, our pilot was... More

While you have to get up early it is more than worth it! Captain Tommy made sure everyone was having a great time and did a fantastic job! Afterward we very much enjoyed the brunch and champagne toast!

Riding in a hot air balloon under the great care of Tommy, our pilot, was an extremely rewarding experience. My wife and I enjoyed it so much that we will most definitely go again. Tommy, and his entire crew, were complete and total professionals who were easy to talk with and great to listen to. This was our first hot... More

From the moment they picked us up til the moment they dropped us off, the crew was professional, fun, and interesting. Captain Tommy was amazing as he flew us around the Colorado countryside. I'm ready to go again!

This is a first class operation in every way. From Eric the shuttle driver to Tommy the pilot. Eric drove us to the launch site about an hour from Breckinridge and was VERY safe. When we got to the site, Tommy and Greg, the pilots met us and explained what we needed to do. After an awesome hour plus ride... More

Our first hot air balloon ride and it was a perfect experience. So beautiful and peaceful. It was both thrilling and relaxing at the same time. The professionalism of the pilot and crew make you feel very safe. The bus ride from Breck with Eric was very enjoyable also. The champagne breakfast picnic was a great ending.

Excellent service from booking to post flight breakfast, and worth the early start. Bus driver Eric very knowledgeable about local geography and history, and a fun sense of humour. Not a bad cook either! Great experience, peacefully drifting in the warm sunny Colorado air, catching the thermals and rising to look down on a broad landscape. Note that you won't... More

The hot air balloon ride was great! The staff were all fantastic and our pilot (Tommy) was amazing. I would definitely suggest doing the premier version and getting the bus from Breck and staying for breakfast- the stories and info shared by our driver (Eric) were really cool and the food was great.
