No better way to see the beautiful mountains than by hot air balloon. You do have to get up early- our departure was 7am- but it was well worth it. Be advised, though, that you do need to allow 3 hours for the tour. Our hotel concierge did not make this clear, and we almost didn't make it to our... More

We arrived promptly at 7:30 and got to watch the balloon being unloaded and set up. My son was extremely excited to watch and to help out. I read the recent awful review by a snobby woman and save for her son passing out, I was extremely shocked at how pretentious she sounded. Does she realize how much it costs... More

The half-hour ride was everything advertised and even more. The transfers were smooth. Everything about this operation was totally professional and enjoyable. And the expense was extremely reasonable, especially given our experience in other states and countries.

Our 6-year old grandson enjoyed the adventure of being in a hot air balloon, but we were disappointed that all we saw was the top of commercial buildings in perhaps a two-block area of Pagosa Springs. I was under the impression that we were going closer to the mountains so we might see some wildlife. The only "wildlife" we saw... More

Mike and his crew were great. The flight over the Pagosa Springs valley was beautiful and very calming. Mike (the pilot) was obviously an expert when it came to maneuvering the balloon through it's paces. As we were given a brief history of the territory he explained many of the events from it's rustic past and the future plans for... More

My husband surprised me with a hot air balloon ride for our 35th anniversary . Everything about the morning was amazing . Mike and his crew were wonderful. I really enjoyed the whole experience. The photographer made us feel very special and the flight was awesome. It was also a lot of fun to have the champagne and muffin celebration... More

I have always wanted to ride in a hot a balloon untethered. I love the Rockies. So, when we decided to vacation in Pagosa Springs, Colorado, I knew I had to do this! My 13 year old son and I decided to go. I cost $270 for the 1/2 hour flight, but it takes about 3 hours. It is an... More

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...

Booked this balloon ride to check off my bucket list. Wife and I arrived at 8am and had to wait about 10 minutes for crew to show up with balloon and equip. 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
