This is an absolute must if you have the money and time when visiting Moab. A great experience for the family and all ages. I was a little nervous about doing this as I don't like heights, but as soon as we took off I felt absolutely fine. Lou is a great guy who is the pilot and guide. He... More

Bright sunny morning, slight breeze, and first time my kids had been ballooning. They were nervous as we got ready to go. Once we were up, the girls loved it! The ground crew was great and the captain knew what he was doing. We were fortunate (although we didn't know it at the time) to get about 50 feet up... More

This was the thing I most looked forward to when planning our visit to Moab, Utah. Canyonlands Ballooning did not disappoint. There was not a lot of wind, so we didn't move very fast, but we did get to see some spectacular scenery. Lou had a great sense of humor and made us feel very comfortable with our first hot... More

This was our first time ballooning, and I didn't know what to expect. The staff and pilot were great! Picked us up, watched the balloon inflate, after an amazing flight, we touched down to champagne and were driven back to our cars. Highly recommend taking a hot air balloon flight with them!

This was my first hot air ballon ride. We are an adventure traveling family, so there was no apprehension when choosing to do a hot air ballon ride. Lou's company Canyonlands Ballooning is top notch . From beginning to end everything as perfect. We had great visibility and a perfect landing. After landing was even topped off with a champagne...

Floated off the ground and into the air. It was a great trip, very gentle with great views. The ground crew and pilot were great.

We had a family trip out west planned in July and I really wanted to give my wife a birthday gift of a hot air balloon ride over the beauty of the Moab desert. Sandra did everything she could and squeezed us in on what turned out to be a gorgeous morning. The balloonist Lou, made the experience a true... More

This was our second balloon ride and we were not disappointed! Great way to take in the beauty of Utah and meet some new friends. Plenty of room to move around the basket and take pictures. Book it! Low the best pilot.....

Luck us - the winds were perfect the day we flew. Purchased this trip as a retirement present for my husband. Got picked up at dawn for our adventure. We were in the hands of a great pilot, but were at the mercy of the winds. This day we were fortunate as the winds took us over the edge of... More

My first balloon ride - but unlikely to be my last. Amazing sights! The Canyonlands team was incredibly efficient and friendly making the whole experience great. Our pilot, Lou, was fun, friendly, competent, and knowledgeable about ballooning and the sights. Beginning to champagne end, this was an A+.
