If you are spending any time in Santa Fe, you MUST go on a ride with Johnny Lewis - this was the #1 absolutely the BEST thing we did while there. We were up early, but Johnny picks you up at your hotel and by sunrise you're on the dessert plains watching them air up the balloon. Johnny is never... More

Last week's balloon ride was more than I expected. A beautiful, calm, blue sky morning - perfect for flying. Johnny is a "hoot" - and fellow Texan ! His experience as a pilot and former FAA inspector speaks to his integrity. He will NOT fly if the conditions are not to his standards - unlike many other companies that will... More

After reading the reviews, I expected it to be great and it is was better than I expected! Johnny was great! Peaceful, calm, spectacular, memorable...barely describes the experience. Really cool little ceremony at the end, with some history as a bonus. If you're considering this, do it!

We had a great ride over the beautiful landscape and canyons north of Santa Fe. Johnny is a great pilot, and explained everything as rose and glided over the terrain. Such a fun experience!!

Had to mark hot air balloon ride off my bucket list, and today I did it withe the best pilot and crew you could find. Owner, pilot Johnny will put you at ease - instantly you know they don't come anymore experienced than he is. The terrain that you cover is beyond beautiful. Jeannie (the toughest, cutest, cowgirl you can... More

I was entertained from start to finish! It was my first time in a hot air balloon and I enjoyed it. I am planning to do it again next year with this crew.

I hesitated writing a review because (1) the other reviewers had said it all (2) unless you actually do it, it's impossible to describe it. That being said, the ride and Johnnie were all as said. Johnnie is a master at his craft, and has a wonderful personality at the same time. His whole crew is first class all the... More

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
