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 area. Johnny in particular was full of many entertaining stories and let anyone who wanted to help pilot the balloon while traveling near a beautiful canyon in the New Mexico desert. At the end when Johnny dropped us off at another tour he told us to call him if we needed anything. His concern was very touching. This tour was a ton of fun in the air and during take off and landing. We were impressed with the gentle landing between the desert fauna. We recommend this specific hot air balloon tour 100%; well worth the price.
