I highly recommend Boise Hot Air company. I recently went up and had a great time. I thought I would be scared but it was actually very peaceful and serene. Bruce is a great pilot and I knew I was in capable hands. He will not take chances, the weather conditions have to be perfect! We had to reschedule several... More

My 24 yr old daughter was visiting from Chicago and we reserved a balloon ride~unfortunately it was windy and we couldn't go, but the empathy and care the company showed was appreciated. We tried to reschedule, but again the wind wasn't cooperating. We didn't get to go this time, but the next time my daughter is in town - we... More

My granddaughter and I were scheduled to have a balloon ride today. A gift from our friend, who scheduled the flight with this company. My granddaughter lives in Lewiston Idaho and asked her parents if she could stay a few more days so she could experience the ride with me. We were so looking forward to it! The lady who... More

Took my seven year old granddaughter and daughter-in-law on their first balloon ride. We all had great fun and the after flight breakfast and champagne or apple juice toast topped off a marvelous time. What set this trip apart and well above other balloon trips I've had was the pilot and staff, they acted more like a large happy family... More

My husband and I went on a balloon ride recently, 15 months after purchasing our vouchers. The view was great, the ride itself was fun, I really enjoyed seeing boise. We launched with another balloon and had to wait a while for them to get back to the park, then they had to go get sparkling cider from the store,... More

I went on a balloon ride with this company a little over a year ago. Although the website says that some balloon baskets hold up to 8 people, I was not expecting such an uncomfortable ride. We were all squeezed into the basket, and couldn't move much. The discomfort aside, the view was spectacular and I felt safe the entire... More

We purchased the deal through LivingSocial about a year ago. Boise Hot Air honored our expired certificates because our flight was cancelled once due to lack of wind on our first scheduled attempt. We went out this morning at 8am, there were more people scheduled than they had room for on the two balloons. Somehow, we were selected to take... More

On a bright sunny Saturday morning we met at the fair grounds to take a hot air balloon ride. We were allowed to assist as the balloon rolled out of a sack and into a 7 story tall red white and blue wonder. The six of us then jumped aboard with our wonderful pilot for an aerial tour of Boise... More
