Great Birthday present to myself. Not as romantic as I thought it would be. Burners were very hot when fired so definitely wear a hat. Even the women should. My head felt sunburned for several days afterwards and I'm only 5'4" . Basket was full of 5 people plus johhny the pilot. He was very knowledgeable though and never felt... More

Hot Air balloon ride with Johnny Lewis, the world's best pilot.. A great ride, like floating on air, which I guess is what is happening! JohnnY tells great stories also. Enjoyed watching the blowing up of the balloon. Just an amazing experience. Thanks Johnny and your staff

We had a fabulous flight over the canyon lands, handled with care and great fun by Johnny, Jeanne and their crew. The views are incredible and the company well worth keeping. I've taken other balloon rides in NM, and this was by far the best in every respect. I'll be bringing more friends along in the future, knowing they won't... More

If someone had told me that I'd be taking a hot air balloon ride in Santa Fe with my family, I'd probably laugh you out of the room. My parents are both scared of "adventure sports", I like extreme sports but generally veer away from flying, and my sister would have ideally been spending more time exploring the arts &... More

The reviews for the Santa Fe Baloon Company make quite tedious reading because they almost all say the same thing..... Excellent experience. At the time of writing this there is only one review less than 5 stars and this was because wind prevented the reviewer from flying, shame. Still made 4 stars though, even without the flight! This is the... More

There is a reason that Santa Fe Balloon Company gets such high ratings on TA - this is a top-notch group from Johnny to all of his staff. We felt like friends or family and not just customers. They did everything to make this a special experience for my husband and I and our two college girls. We booked our... More

Amazing experience on a hot air balloon ride! We were very lucky to go on a smaller balloon with just my husband and me and the pilot, Johnny (the business owner). The whole crew was great, very friendly and eager to make our trip safe and fun. Great anecdotal stories, historical info about ballooning, and just a lot of fun.... More

The ride was enjoyed by our group of four and another group of four - eight in total. It was a really great experience -... More

Went on a balloon ride for our friends 50th birthday - what an amazing adventure. This is a first class operation. Johnny and his crew are fabulous. Every attention to detail. They really endeavor to make it an interesting and fun trip while never compromising safety. Johnny is THE balloon pilot to fly with. Jeanie is his trusted right hand... More
