Went hot air ballooning in Santa Fe NM with pilot, Johnny Lewis. He was a real character who made the ride fun and entertaining. Johnny is such a nice guy and a very experienced pilot. The ride was enjoyed by our group of four and another group of four - eight in total. It was a really great experience -... More

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

Checked off another bucket list item for me and hubby. The crew of this operation is outstanding. From Johnny (the pilot) to his crew members: Jeannie, Sol, and Marlene, they will make your morning turn into the best day ever!!! We were flying high on a day that the ABQ Balloon Fiesta didn't even launch. It was so awesome and... More

It's a magical experience. Johnny and his great crew made our trip absolutely perfect. If you want to go but are somewhat afraid ..... GO WITH JOHNNY !!! His world-class experience and love of what he does will be worth your effort to get there so early in the morning. His location is off the beaten path and that is... More

The balloon ride was great. Johnny,Marlene,David,Soul,and Jerome were wonderful,they made sure that we all had a great time. Johnny is a character and very entertaining and funny. I highly recommend this company not only for the balloon ride but for the crew who made it a fun experience.

The scenery was breathtaking bring a few of the group to tears. The crew took lots of pictures as we were taking off and then gave... More

A 5:30am pick up is very early while on vacation and we were all feeling a bit grumpy. But once the truck pulls up and a great big hello welcomes you, it is the start of a perfect morning. Our family of four loved every minute of our first ever balloon ride. Johnny is full of stories as is his... More

9 friends traveled from Hershey to visit dear friends In Santa Fe. Our first balloon ride with Johnny, Jeanne, and the crew was one of life's experiences that we will never forget. A delightful group of people with a focus on their customers enjoyment. Safety first and fun, fun, fun!!!! Simply fabulous.

Johnny and his crew delivered an amazing ride for my family this morning ... he expertly pilots the balloon in and out of canyons and ranges, gently letting the balloon rise and fall. He took time to explain the balloon and how it works, and talked through the topography of New Mexico. The ride was incredibly smooth. Johnny and his... More
