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

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
