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.

A friend and I treated ourselves to this wonderful balloon ride. We had never been in a balloon basket before, and we had a marvelous time. The flight is smooth and quiet, and never scary even to someone (like me) who has what I like to think of as a healthy fear of heights. Johnny Lewis, the pilot, is so... More

Our Pilot, Johnny, certainly added to the fun of our first balloon flight. We didn't go as high as I thought we might, but I think each ride is probably different as you are just a passenger on the winds. For you other first timers, it wasn't scary or shakey. We had a great time.and thoroughly enjoyed the sights and... More

This is truly the experience of a lifetime and it is also entertaining and relaxing under the guidance of Johnny Lewis. I encourage people like myself who are acrophobic to try this because it is really not scary at all, think of it like an elevator, rather than a roller coaster and you will get the idea. The whole crew... More

I have been hot air ballooning before and really liked it but this flight with Johnny and the Santa Fe Balloon company staff was AMAZING! All staff were friendly and really made the experience special by taking pictures without being asked, setting up a cute cowboy themed champaign toast bunch, and even suggesting other things to do while in the...

It's no wonder the Santa Fe Balloon Co. has received 33 reviews and 33 excellent ratings. Very professional and safe. The crew works hard and Johnny is both incredibly knowledgeable and informative and is quite a character. We had never been in a hot air balloon before but will definitely be back. Do not miss this!!!

My wife and I planned on doing this as a birthday gift to each other on our trip to Santa Fe. We thought this would be great and would be something nice to cross off of our bucket list. Unfortunately due to the weather, we had to scratch our flight. There was an opening the following day, so we're decided... More

My partner and I took a flight to celebrate our 20th anniversary. This expreience was amazing! While we were a little crowded, there were 7 plus Johnny in our basket, the flight far exceeded our expectations. We went into this thinking it was a once in a lifetime thing. After this flight, we are definitely planning to do it again!
