Lou and his crew were great. He was very informative during the flight and was knowledgeable about the landscape. This was a really great experience and gives a very different perspective of the park. The champagne toast at the end was a nice touch. Highly recommended.

This was one of the most stunning and exciting things I have experienced in my life! Definitely an adventure to check off my bucket list! What a great way to start my day! Waking up at 5:00am while on vacation was well worth it and I will do it again someday when I can. We had a beautiful morning to... More

I was in the Moab area with my 12 year old son and decided to go on the hot air balloon ride with these guys. We started just after sunrise and went into a deserted area where the ballon was filled with hot air. Then the amazing views of the mountains, rocks and valleys. The "balloon driver" as the pilot...

Honestly,our hot air balloon experience with Canyonlands was perfect. I can't think of any way it could have been improved. I'd always wanted to take one of these rides but I hadn't realized that I would be RIGHT THERE in the middle of all the action, looking up at the giant flame and the gas tanks, learning about how Lou...

Recently, my family and I took a Moab balloon ride with Canyonlands Ballooning. We had a great time! Everyone was very professional and helpful. Lou, our pilot, was a great tour guide! He gave us lots of information about what we were seeing from the air as well as answering our questions about the balloon. I would recommend taking this... More

We flew with Canyonlands and Lou in September in Moab. We were interested in getting a bird's eye view of the red rocks of Moab. The whole ride from pick up to pre-flight preparation and the flight itself was very professionally run. We had been in balloon trips before in Cambodia and Africa but Lou's skill in manouevering the balloon... More

We had the pleasure to fly with Canyonlands Ballooning on Oct 11, 2014. The only negative thing I have to say is it's a little pricey - I've seen other ballooning places across the country for much cheaper, so I was a little hesitant to drop the money. With that said, all of it was a once in a lifetime... More

I was in Moab on a climbing trip with a group of friends. We decided that going ballooning one morning sounded fun and would be an awesome experience so we bought tickets and went. The ride was amazing with fun moments throughout, stories, and views. Talk to the people who open the balloon and the pilot Los. They have awesome... More

From start to finish... the booking process, follow up information, the meeting point and the flight. Dont forget the landing and what about the ride back to where it all started .... That is an adventure on its own. Well done to Lou and his team just simply superb. If your in the area just Do It.
