The Hot Air Balloon ride might be the best thing we have done yet. The views were spectacular, the pilot knowledgable, humorous, put the 2 girls that were a bit apprehensive at total ease.... More

The staff was friendly and professional. This was my second hot air flight and it was a wonderful time. The weather was spectacular and the ride smooth and relaxing. The ride lasted about 1 hour, yet it covered very little of the surrounding area. That was somewhat disappointing since I was hoping to see more of the mountains colorful treeline... More

I can't brag on this trip enough! My daughter gave us a Groupon for a hot air balloon ride and I was very anxious at the thought of it because I am terrified of heights. The guide put us at ease immediately and I soon forgot my fear of heights! We spent the next hour viewing some of the most... More
