What a fantastic experience! I was so impressed with Fair Weather’s balloon ride. Not only were the people all super friendly and just genuinely nice folks, they have fine tuned the entire adventure down to an art!

From the arrival time to takeoff, the staff was great about explaining how everything was going to happen. The finishing touches (t-shirts, champagne, and printed pictures) are handed out after you return to the takeoff site even!

Our flight got canceled in the fall due to weather, but the wait for the re-book was 💯 worth it on a picture-perfect (literally) day!

Amazing!

Great bucket list item! If you have not tried a ride in a hot air balloon you should. And if you do in Denver, it should be with Fair Winds Hot Air Balloon Flights! Pilot and team were spectacular, just like the views as you fly and float above the front range. Thank you so much for the unforgettable time. We will never forget such a memorable experience!

We had received a gift certificate from our son so decided to use it. Our first flight was scheduled for a Thursday morning; we were in the basket ready to lift off but a wind pulse hit and then the wind shifted so the company decided to cancel for safety’s sake. We appreciated their caution.
Jeff made it easy to reschedule and two days later we were up in the air. We thoroughly enjoyed the flight. Ed piloted us well, giving us explanations about how and where we were moving and answering any questions we had. It was a beautiful morning and we could see all the way to Denver. We landed safely, we’re taken by van back to our cars and given a goody bag with a split of champagne, a tee shirt and a souvenir photo.

Amazing! We had such a great time with our pilot, ED. He was professional, funny and made us feel safe (I'm afraid of heights but this didn't affect me at all). We went to 10k feet and we skimmed the top of trees, all so very exciting! I would definitely recommend this to everyone.

Beautiful, breathtaking experience! We got lucky and had a clear, blue sky September morning with light winds. So very peaceful and exciting to soar in front of the Rockies, a true bucket list moment beyond imagination! Jeff Meeker and crew are so professional and provide a very informative fear-free time from take-off to landing. A most fun time, too, with surprise goodies on the ground upon return. Kudos to Jeff for being the ultimate gracious host!

My wife has always wanted to do this. As part of a driving vacation, our stop in the Denver area would not have been complete without this amazing experience. Staff was super friendly and informative. Our original date was cancelled due to weather conditions, but, they made room for us 2 days later. Our pilot, Ed, was really informative and made the ride enjoyable. Jeff and his staff give 100% to make you feel like you are their only customers.

I loved listening to the pilot as he reasoned out where to land. The views were somewhat obstructed by forest fire smoke, but it was fascinating nonetheless. It’s like riding in a glider with the windows open. There is no air noise. The burners are noisy, but not constant. In between, it’s dead silent. This was on my bucket list (I’m 71) and I was very pleased. One thing: the price is worth it and so are the pilots, but the suggested tip is a full 20%, recommended when you sign for the credit card charges. They all deserve this, but budget that in?to the cost. Great times! Go ahead and have a good time.

Fair Winds was an amazing experience, I highly recommend it. The staff was kind and easy to work with, and the level of communication and information provided was very nice. I had always wanted to go on a hot air balloon ride, and Fair winds were the perfect company to do so with. Jeff was our pilot, and he was very experienced and skilled in flying. We arrived at about 5:45 am, and the staff was right there to help us check-in and get everything ready for the flight. I highly recommend going on a hot air balloon ride with Fair Winds.
