I highly recomend this experience to travelers to Armenia. To get a birds eye view of the Karni area and beyond was truly well worth it. I plan to take the ride again on my next trip there. The pilot made it fun once up in the air, with music and champagne, once back down there were refreshments and more champagne to be had.

Today I got the chance to experience riding on a hot air balloon for the first time with Skyball Armenia. It has been one of the most unforgettable experiences. Apart from the breathtaking views, smooth takeoff and landing process, and high professionalism of the pilots, the staff was extremely friendly and hospitable. Definitely a must-have experience in Armenia!

It was a truly fascinating experience ... I have taken the flight in Garni , and , to my understanding ,
there, especially , everything seemed/ felt much better than if I had taken the flight in the city centre in Yerevan ...
It is a nice memory now , and I am sure I will be coming back to it from time to time ...

Thanks to the Skyball's highly professional team we celebrated my husband's birthday up in the air with style and champagne! The view from above was spectacular and will stay in our mind forever. We took our two children (9 and 6) and it was an unforgettable experience for them.
The booking process was fast and easy. The company provides transportation (with A/C), snacks, beverages, video and photo package, champagne and super friendly staff.
We highly recommend Skyball hotair balloon ride as a must do activity while in Armenia. We'll definitely do it again.

Words cannot describe the amazing experience that my mother and I had with the Skyball Armenia team! Everything from their communication over email to organizing the trip with all the little touches was done in a friendly and professional manner.

We did the morning sunrise tour over Garni, on the recommendation of the team, and we were not disappointed. We were picked up at 5:30 am on the dot and had a 45 min car ride to the Garni region. Nairi, the main pilot, offered us some hot coffee and we waited for about 20 mins for them to set up the balloon and basket. We were then given safety instructions and proceeded to climb the basket. As my mother was older, she was nervous to climb into the basket, but there were little steps in the basket for support and the team was ever so helpful in assisting her. Once everyone was settled in the basket, up we went! This feeling cannot be described in words. Its just you, the open sky, the rising sun and nature. Wow. We were then offered champagne and chocolate, which as everyone knows is the breakfast of champions ;) The whole thing just felt surreal and magical!

We were in the air for about an hour following which we started the decent. At some points we were flying low over the trees and we were able to reach out and pick some apples! That was super fun! The Garni temple and Mount Ararat was also clearly visible and made for some good photos! Oh there was also a professional photographer to take photos before and after the flight. Nairi managed the gopro camera on a selfie stick during the flight which also gave us some good pictures. The flight then landed and it took another 20 mins for the team to deflate the balloon and pack it up.

On our way back, we stopped for a few mins at a picturesque location and the team set up a small table with some more champagne and fruits and had a little certificate ceremony for us. This was a really sweet gesture that made us smile! The difference between a professional service and an unprofessional one is really in the details.

(On a side note, there is an old lady selling some wares at this location. We do not recommend anything from here as it is quite overpriced. You are better off buying better goods for cheaper at the Vernissage market)

After this ceremony we were dropped back to our hotel and the payment was made as per the agreement. Another nice touch was that the photos were sent within 3 hours! Available and ready for download and sharing immediately!
All in all a fantastic experience!

We want to thank all the members of the team: Vardan, Manuk, Hrsen, Vardan (Photographer) and most of all Nairi, for this memory! We will never forget it!

If ballooning has been on your bucket list, the Armenia is probably one of the best places to check that off!

Having a truly unique way to experience Armenia... is to Ride the "Hot Air Balloon".
Travel with the wind, gliding through the air at low and high altitudes. Flew as high as 980 meters and above. As you soar high in the early hours of the morning. Prepare to be amazed by the mesmerizing sunrise, valleys, quaint villages and endless fields below. During the flight you will get a spectacular birds eye view of gorgeous Garni. I felt in love with this beautiful Country. Two 👍 👍 thumbs up.
Nairi Barseghyan was a phenomenal pilot with extremely welcoming and friendly team. We landed very smoothly as if we haven't touch the ground yet. I would highly recommend it to everyone planning to visit Armenia from a complete different view don't miss it!
Cheers to the SKYball Team.. great job!!! Till next time...

I made a present for my boyfriend's birthday.It was the first time we were flying in the sky.
During our flight we were drinking a champagne and enjoyed Armenian indescribable nature.We were caught between the rocks and it seems like we were in a movie.The day was unforgettable and full of emotions.And really it was the best adventure.
I want to thank Skyball's professional team for unreal flight and delicious hospitality and special thank Nairi Barseghyan for his creative idea❤️
