If you are ever going to try this it should be with Johnny in beautiful Santa Fe. He has been doing this since he was 19 years old and hasn't lost anybody yet:) The personal experience you get from Johnny and his crew is well worth the price. I am not one to fork out that kind of money for... More

This was a bucket list item fort husband and I. The entire experience, from the time Johnny picked us up until he dropped us back off 4 hours later, was incredible. Johnny is a good and honorable man. I was thrilled that my children got to listen to his wisdom and wit. Our lives were touched by this man in... More

My newlywed wide and I spent the last morning of our trip with Johnny and crew. We had a fanatic experience! The four other fliers with us were fun and interesting people to meet. The crew was very professional. Expensive, but well worth the time. Johnny isn't getting rich off of you, the money goes towards maintains the equipment. Go... More

We were picked up by Johnny at our hotel at 5:15am. He greeted us like friends who haven't seen each other for a while. One of the most interesting fellas we've ever met! We met up with Jeannie and the guys she was bringing along for the ride, as well. Then we went to the takeoff site. The wind was... More

There is only one Johnny Lewis and he is the most amazing, kind and funny character. I don't know what we liked better ... the balloon ride or Johnny. This is so worth the money ... he is the best .... cannot wait to bring our children for a ride.

I will never forget my hot air balloon ride in NM about 3 years ago! Yes you have to wake up early (4am) in order to get the perfect wind/weather conditions in order to have a smooth flight but it is so worth it! Johnny picked us up and drove us about an hour out to the fly site. Awesome... More

Johnny was a great host with humor, local history and experience. We felt safe at all times and exhilarated by the smooth lift off and landing. Definitely worth the investment for a forever vacation memory. It was nice to toast with champagne afterwards.

My wife and I spent part of our honeymoon on a ballon ride, and we must say we had an awesome experience. Johnny pick us up at the hotel and we felt like old friends meeting up. The staff was amazing, friendly, helpful. The food at the end of the ride was just perfect. Johnny's story telling was a 10+.... More

The air was crisp and clean, cool and calm, just like our balloon Pilot, Johnny Lewis. We had done our homework and picked the right balloon company. Five out of six of my girlfriends decided they would brave the balloon adventure with Santa Fe Balloon Company while the sixth remained on the ground and became part of the chase team.... More

A lot of fun. Johnny picked up my husband at the hotel which was great as we didn't rent a car. He loved it. Very beautiful balloon and attentive staff. The champagne, soft drink and snacks at the end of the ride is an added plus.
