Fantastic experience that I highly recommend! I’m usually afraid of heights but the staff, especially Livia made me my friends feel so comfortable, especially since we were in a 12 person basket. I would recommend Globo advise passengers that they offer a light breakfast before the ride at the Rosewood Hotel as this is a nice treat. A more detailed description of the breakfast option offered ‘post balloon ride’ at the Rosewood hotel would be nice to know, as we would have selected this option.

First time riding a hot air balloon and it was Awesome! The meeting spot, The Rosewood Hotel is beautiful and they had a little light breakfast and coffee set up while they go over the consent. Then they take you by van to the location where you will get on the balloon and lift off! The guide will take pics and they also will offer a package of pics with drone pics at an affordable price. The guide is very sweet and helpful and does know english. when you go up you are not tethered to a rope you are free in the are. The view is so peaceful and the music that is played goes well with the scene. lots of picture moments. Staff is great Would recommend and would definately do again

Fabulous experience for our family. Livia was a delight. She made sure that everyone felt safe and her positive energy was contagious. The ride was beautiful and I would recommend this company to anyone visiting SMDA.

Amazing experience. The staff did a very good job of explaining how it all worked and what to expect. We loved our guide who went up with us and the pilot. The company is totally focused on safety, and we felt very safe. Seeing the sun rise in the balloon was astounding. No music, which was great, so peaceful. I would have given five stars if there had been some steps to help us, who are older, get in and out of the four person gondola. That was a tad difficult. But manageable, they helped us and I wouldn't let that stop you. if you ever wanted to try a balloon ride, I recommend you do it with this company.

I made a reservation for 3. My parents and I. We were to arrive at 6, we didn’t end up leaving til 640. There were no instructions given, no communication. Nothing whatsoever. We all hop in vans. Everyone just gets in whatever balloon and when I get in with my family they make me get off because “there’s too much weight”. They said I should’ve been on another balloon. I made the reservation for 3. Extremely disappointed, I had to stay back and watch them go without me. They said they called me to my cell phone to let me know but no notice whatsoever. Highly disorganized. The guides did not communicate anything, did not say how people were gonna get on nothing. Essentially a free for all. I’m disappointed that I was not able to partake with my parents due to an error on there part. No efforts to make it work either. They did give me my money back, but getting up at 5 am to get to the meet up location at 6am was a bunch of time wasted. Very very upset and disappointed.

Wow it was amazing. If you ever have the opportunity to do this experience book it. Do not hesitate. The crew was very professional from the pickup, to the check in and the flight crew. We had a group of 12 total. Memorable experience. I recommend them 100%. My mom is 71 and her 3rd ballon ride. The youngest was 10 and was amazed. Words can’t express the emotions and sights. Don’t be afraid to look down. This is my first ballon ride and loved every second of it. The ground crew were very professional. I felt safe. This is an adventure of a lifetime. The weather was beautiful.

This morning at 7 am the balloon had about 10 people. It was passing within 30 feet of homes and floor level. It was not above the homes. This company invades people's privacy, is operating dangerously at almost ground level and packed with people in times when the state is classes as RED with Covid. The balloon almost touched down in Palo Azul and again in El Paraiso housing developments. This is a very dangerous balloon operator..

Such a great unique experience. They have several size balloons based on the total number of people going on the trip. You meet at a hotel load up in a van and head to the take off spot. They have a great head of hospitality who is learning to be a pilot himself and he helped explain and answer all our questions. Only knock would be for them to have a step stool to help those that need a bit of help to get into the balloon. Other than that the total experience is about 3-4 hours from when you arrive to being dropped back off at hotel. Definitely worth it and a wonderful fun experience!

We had a wonderful experience with Globo. The hosts and the pilots were amazing, and both our host and pilot were English-speaking. The day started with coffee and a snack at the lovely Rosewood. We were in the air shortly after, and my friends and I loved every minute of it! Floating over beautiful San Miguel de Allende was magical. We opted for the breakfast at Rosewood and it was such a treat (and the food was wonderful). It was my birthday, and all-in-all, it was a perfect day.
