My family of four floated over Boulder for over an hour then gently landed in a field in Broomfield. Jeff was our pilot and we couldn't have asked for a happier leader that sincerely wanted his passengers to have the best experience possible. Outstanding experience we will never forget. Even though the price sounds high, it turns out to be... More

Do it! Jeff is a safe and engaging pilot. He is the best host and bends over backwards to make the ride fun for everyone. It was a beautiful and thrilling ride and I am so glad I chose Fair Winds!

This is the first time I had ever been hot air ballooning and had a blast. We went 10,000 feet above sea level which was 5,000 off the ground. The views were spectacular. Our pilot was very knowledgeable. When we landed after about an hour of being in the air, we helped get the balloon packed up. It's amazing the... More

Wow! I don't know how it could have been any better. The staff were excellent and informative. The customer service is outstanding. The pilot quickly learned everyone's name and interacted with high fives and big smiles. We had a marvelous experience.

This was a bucket list item for me. Wanted to go on one since I was a little girl and saw The Wizard of Oz, lol. It couldn't have been more PERFECT! Jeff, which was our pilot and owner of the company (I believe) was AWESOME. He is a very personable person. You felt like he was part of your... More

If you want something truly special and romantic, a private hot air ballon ride with Fair Winds is perfect! My husband and I booked our own ride for our wedding anniversary and we got to take in beautiful Colorado and the Rockies over a bottle of champagne (comes with the package). The pilot was so friendly, but no overly talkative... More

The people at Fair Winds are amazing. Jeff was, who I believe is the owner, was very personable from the beginning helping make our reservation over the phone. Jeff, the pilot, and crew made everyone feel special —they called out birthdays, anniversaries, etc. The ride was fun and our pilot was very friendly and informative. He let us know how... More

My friend, Tammy, and I rode in our very first hot air balloon today. It was AMAZING!! We rode in the "Crystal Blue" balloon along with our entertaining pilot, Toby, a sweet young man, Austin, and a very sweet couple that was celebrating their 1 year Anniversary. The Fair Winds Hot Air Balloon company was very kind, efficient, and concerned... More
