Do Not Book With This Company!!!
Aug 2021
I would highly recommend that you book with any hot air balloon company, but this one. What was supposed to be an amazing experience, turned into a nightmare. The ride was cancelled due to the windy weather, which was fine, safety first. However, they refused to refund the money. It took over a month of filing a dispute with my credit card company, then going back & forth with them to receive even a partial refund. If you are in CO, chances are high that the ride will be cancelled due to the weather & they will look for ways to keep your money. The cancellation policy doesn't specify that if you reschedule & they cancel the ride you will be out 50% plus the reschedule fee. Even my credit card company stated they were in the wrong for keeping the money.

Excellent experience. This was on my bucket list and decided to make a a family affair. I am not fond of heights, but, Troy, our guide was great. Explained what was happening with the balloon and winds. I felt very comfortable and even looked over the edge of the basket. Would definitely book with this company again.

Bitter sweet experience.
Jul 2021
My husband and I took this balloon ride for our 24th wedding anniversary. We were the last to board and they put us in separate baskets. It took an element away from the experience. The pilot said three person per basket....wish they had warn us of this ahead... We would have made other arrangements.

Hello Cece, thank you for taking the time to fill out a review for us. With each of our baskets, we do have to distribute the weight evenly and make sure all passengers have room for their bucket list experience. Usually it works out perfectly where groups do not have to stand on the other side of the partition from their group, but every now and then we do get odd numbers booked for the trip. I do apologize that this took an element away from your experience. Your feedback does help to make sure that we take all considerations for our passengers trips in the future.

HAPPY 4TH OF JULY!
Jul 2021 • Family
Absolutely 💯% A bucket list must do!!! What an amazing & adventurous experience!!! When we booked the trip a few months ago, we had no idea, it was going to be this amazing!!! With most of us having a fear of heights, we braved it anyway, and so thankful we did!!! We had the greatest pilot Jesse -- Great Job!! 👏👏👏🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸 Between the step by step details of what to expect from beginning to end, his sense of humor, personality, and knowledge of air traffic, to answering even the silliest of questions, he was hands down the best!! We were a little nervous at first during take off, but it was so smooth and comfortable the entire flight!!! THE LANDING:::: Wow, again, Fantastic job!!! Such a smooth gentle landing!! The entire experience was absolutely worth every penny!!! And YES!! WE plan to do this again!!!!
