At first we were a bit nervous if the balloon trip would be worth the price for a private trip. However, we did not regret the amount of money when the trip was done. The staff was extremely safety oriented, knowledgable of their equipment, well versed in local lore and the story of ballooning history. They showed great hospitality! We... More

My daughter-in-law, son and I greatly enjoyed this experience. Our balloon operator was knowledgeable as well as reassuring in his level of experience. Yeah - it was pricey but there is a lot involved here. I can only imagine the insurance they must carry. The view was quite remarkable. Wish we could have drifted more but that is beyond anyone's...

Then riders had to help prepares the balloon for flight and we separated into 2 groups, we were in the 2nd group which had to board the van... More

We went on Tuesday June 23rd, and was disappointed at how much was required of paying customers in the set up of the balloon, the basket is HEAVY and we were told to pitch in and tip it over to hook up the ropes, balloon, etc. Then they needed people to hold the balloon by the ropes while other customers...

My husband and I are celebrating our babymoon (last vacation before the baby comes), and wanted to find some fun - and safe! - adventures. This absolutely fit the bill. Mike, the owner, and his crew made the entire process comfortable and very fun. We got some amazing pictures, but still ended up buying more from the photographer, Grizz, that... More

Having a fear of heights, I was nervous. Rest assured it was a beautiful experience. It's amazing to help put it up and take it down.The ride was awesome and I didn't want to come down. A must

I had never done a hot air balloon. But it was on my bucket list. So in the lower rockies with incredible mountains and views so why not here. It was amazing. The sense of movement goes away. The feeling of being free of the earth makes you feel like a voyeur to the world. It is exciting and heart... More

If you have ever wanted to do this, this is the place and this is the company to use. We went to the Activity Center for Wyndham resorts and found a deal for 1/2 price balloon rides on Tuesday mornings. It is only a 1/2 hour ride, but more than worth the 110 pp it cost us. I mean, how... More

On our first morning (Sunday, 9/21/14) at Pagosa Springs there was a Hot Air Balloons Festival – it was beautiful. 48 balloons, beautiful sunny morning! At first we went to the Wyndham village, but then realized that the best view is right from our balcony at Eagle’s Loft - around the lake. It was spectacular. We decided that we have... More

Found this business through Trip Advisor. When I called to reserve (while driving to Colorado from Illinois) was greeted by Voice mail. Was a little concerned as I wondered if this was a fly by night business. As it turned out my fears were unfounded. Mike the owner and pilot has been offering flights for 29 years and had vast...
