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

This was a birthday gift for my girlfriend - her first flight and my 6th. She absolutely adored it and it was the most entertaining flight I have ever enjoyed. Johnny and his crew are fabulous. They are genuinely friendly, amusing, welcoming and highly competent. I think they had as good a time as we did. On most balloon flights,... More

I planned this as a surprise birthday treat for my husband and he was surprised! I was worried about him being crabby with having to get up early (picked up at 5:15A!), but when he saw the big balloon filling up, he was in awe! It was an amazing experience for the entire family. But what's more, we had an... More

This was a great experience. The weather (wind) didn't really cooperate with us but we still had a great experience and Johnny, Jeannie and the crew are a lot of fun. I would definitely do this again, and I would definitely choose the Santa Fe Balloon Company. It may seem a little expensive to do this but I thought it... More

I agree with the other reviewers -- wonderful team of people including Johnny, Jeannie, and the team on the ground. We had a great trip. Felt very safe.

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.
