Our hot air balloon experience was top-notch from the moment I called to schedule our flight. We were able to watch the basket, balloon, etc. being assembled prior to our flight, heard a lot about the area we were flying over, and were able to help pack the balloon up after our flight. It was a great experience for our... More

Great time, great ride, great Aeronaut. This was well worth the cost. I would do it again and recommend it to friends without reservation. Very professional, yet fun. Team Murray! Felt very safe the entire time.

The Pilot and crew were professional and fun. The flight was better than I hoped. I would definately recommend this company but especially Team Murphy!

I was so excited about this trip. Our captain, Will, was a great guy. Quiet, but if you asked him a question he was quick to give his insight and share how he got into the business of piloting balloons. The flight crew were awesome and funny. If you do this, be prepared to help a little with holding the... More

From start to finish, the experience was first rate! Our knowledgeable pilot not only inspired confidence in his passengers with his skill, but entertained us with information and stories of the area as well. With plenty of time for quiet reflection throughout the ride and the champagne toast at the end, it was a perfect way to start the day!

Got tickets for my daughter and Grandkids. They had an absolute great time. I thought the costs we're resonable for all they got to do and see. Hlghly recommend this. The staff was first rate.

This was a surprise for both my wife and I. We got up that morning not knowing what to expect, but I must say that it made for a great completion of a bucket list item for the both of us. The staff were very nice, and made sure that the ride was fun and care-free. We had an excellent... More

Captain Murray was personable, outgoing, and most importantly, skilled when it came to piloting his balloon. His staff was courteous and professional from the outset. The entire journey was well organized and I felt very comfortable during the entire voyage. We were allowed to assist with set up, which was fun. Added another dimension to the trip, I felt a...
