This was my second flight but the first for my niece and her 9 & 12 year olds. We all loved it! The 9 yr old is a bit afraid of heights but she had no problem at all and was thrilled the whole time. The wind died down almost completely when it was time to pick one of the... More

I'll start by saying we had a wonderful time. My husband had no interest in taking a balloon ride, and even he was happy we went. My only suggestion for improvement would be to provide a description of the meeting point. We were given an address, and it turned out to be a strip mall parking lot. We got there... More

They do a great job. Our pilot was super knowledgeable and the flight certificates/mimosa toast afterwards were perfect. I liked knowing we were NOT going to be cramped into a basket with a huge family of children. It was a pretty magical morning!!
