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+.

This was a highlight of our recent trip to Moab. I had always wanted to fly in a hot air balloon and our experience exceeded my expectations! We had a wonderful ride with perfect weather conditions: sunny, blue skies and just enough of a breeze to keep us moving. We soared over mesas and dipped into canyons. Our Pilot, Lou,... More

They day of the flight we met at the Shell station north of town. That is where we met Dave our driver. Signed the liability papers and then were off. There was... More
