These guys are absolutely phenomenal. Totally worth the money and getting up before dawn. The sights were spectacular and the crew were awesome, very friendly and helpful.

I am a huge Ballooning Fan. I crew for some friends that own a balloon and when I asked my friend who he knew that had a balloon that would accommodate 8 people as I had visitors coming in from out of town.

Perfect flight, great pilot, beautiful morning. This was the first flight for my son and his fiancée. They are still talking about how much fun they had on their flight.

The staff at World Balloon could not have been nicer! The balloon ride was amazing and surprisingly peaceful. I thought it would be scary since I am afraid of heights but it is very relaxing as if you are floating above the city.

This was my first balloon ride and it was great! I called only 2 days in advance and had no problem getting a spot for the day I wanted. Early morning show for the flight and you meet in town so it is easy to get too. You get to watch the crew set up the balloons and then you... More

We had booked our first ever balloon flight with World Balloon and the experience was top notch! After filling the balloon with hot air we climbed into the basket – along with seven other passengers (the basket can accommodate up to 12 people I believe) – Pilot Murray fired up the gas burners and off we went. First to the... More

An amazing once in a lifetime experience that was handled perfectly. Booking process easy and professional with great follow up. Clear instructions and directions. Flight was simply amazing! Pilot and crew - excellent. Champagne toast at the completion of flight - a classy end. Do it!

My fiance and I were gifted a trip with World balloon. We had a private flight with an amazing pilot, Will. They were very welcoming and energetic (that's saying something at 6:30am!). The flight itself was incredible, the welcome before and the ceremony after was fantastic. Highly, highly recommended.

I can't say enough about the pilot and crew. What a hot air balloon ride! I took my wife and we both had an awesome experience. I would fly with these guys anytime! I would recommend World Balloon to anybody interested in a hot air balloon ride!
