Wow. An amazing, authentic ballooning experience that really takes your breath away. Holland from the air is beautiful and the intimacy of a private flight is unrivaled. Dook is extremely experienced, I would recommend this to anyone.

Dook and his family were amazing. I planned our flight as a surprise for my boyfriend, Dook was great at not giving away the surprise and even brought some snacks I requested to make it even more personal. He was kind enough to allow us to assist in preparing the balloon for flight and breaking it down afterward. The sights during the flight were breathtaking. I would recommend flying with Dook if you are searching for a memorable experience. The communication from Dook was also stellar, he was in contact with me every step of the way and was great with answering any of my questions.

We can’t possibly say enough great thinks about pinkel balloons and our pilot Dook! He was absolutely amazing. Extremely kind, professional and very knowledgeable with many many years of experience! We traveled from Florida and booked our flights with Dook months in advance and from the very first email Inquiry down to dropping us off at the doorstep of our hotel, Dook was nothing short of spectacular and more than helpful with every single part of our trip! He gave us very specific and detailed instructions of how to book a train and even what platform our train would arrive and then picked us up from the train station. The flight itself was well over the length of time we paid for and provided the most beautiful sunset I’ve ever seen. Someday when we return, we will absolutely book with him again and I do very much look forward to that day! No other balloon ride I've ever taken can compare to the one Dook provided us! Memories we won’t soon forget!!

Did this balloon ride as a couple as we wanted our first time in a balloon to be just us and a pilot as opposed to a cramped 10 man basket and it did not disappoint! Communication prior to launch was great thanks to Dook, who informed us of any changes due to weather conditions. The trip itself was incredible at sunset and I would highly recommend it to couples. Worth spending the extra for it to be just the 2 of you. Overall an unforgettable experience thanks to a professional, safe and enthusiastic host. 5 star.

My wife and I were in Amsterdam for her birthday celebration. We wanted to do something different for her birthday so we thought a hot air ballon ride over Holland would be perfect. We didn’t want to be in a ballon with a bunch of people we didn’t know therefore we choose a private tour with Dook. And I must say it was a GREAT decision! From the first contact with Dook his communication was extraordinary. We always knew what to expect and he kept us well informed. Dook is an amazing balloon pilot and we always felt safe and at ease - even my wife who is afraid of heights! At the end of the flight he surprised us with homemade pancakes he made for my wife’s birthday. If we could give more than 5 stars we would! Thanks Dook! Look us up if you are every in Flordia.
