“Up, Up and Away”

Wow! What fun! Everything was well organized and professionally handled. The scenery is beautiful. Lou is very knowledgeable. Everything about it exceeded expectations. This is a great operation for marking hot air ballooning off your bucket list.

“Awesome!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2013 via mobile

Surprised our kids with this and man did Lou and the crew deliver. Was an incredible experience all around. The only reason I am not given it 5 stars is because I'm gonna be extremely nit picky .... We were up in the air for 'only' 45 minutes. I realize that Lou and crew have absolutely not control over the wind, etc. But for the amount it costs a family of 5 was hoping for at least an hour if not more in the air. Once again, I would totally recommend this and would do it again. Just be prepared that it might not last as long as you hope. The landing was awesome and just scary enough to get the heart pumping ... But not dangerous in the least. Thanks to Lou and crew for a first class experience.

“Soaring over Arches National Park”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2013

Up, up and away in a BEAUTIFUL balloon.... What an amazing experience!! After our adventure while visiting Arches National Park, I can honestly say that there is absolutely nothing much better than watching the sun rise from the basket of a hot air balloon. Soaring over a portion of Arches National Park and seeing its beauty from high above was incredible. Lou and his crew are terrific and went out of their way to make our hot air balloon ride enjoyable. This is one adventure that you do not want to miss out on so put it on your bucket list and make it happen!

“Amazing experience!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2013

My husband and I were excited to experience our first hot-air balloon ride. The ride was phenomenal! Lou and his crew were awesome, attentive, and professional. It was an exciting experience to watch the setting up of the balloon with the rising sun in the background, the breathtaking views over the rocks, impressive and perfect landing, and champagne toast to celebrate the day. Two thumbs up for Lou, his crew, and Canyonland Balloon Company. This experience was hands-down the best memory from our stay in Utah!
