My wife and I went for a balloon ride with Dave and his crew. From the start, he provided details and reassurance that it would be a great flight... and a great flight it was. We were offered the chance to help getting the balloon all set up. This helped address some of the nervousness. LOL! Once up in the air, it was extremely peaceful and Dave shared a lot of info about flying and how the winds play a huge part in making a great trip. We would def recommend take a trip with Dave!

For my first time it was pretty awesome. Fred did a great job making sure we were comfortable and understood everything. It was a great conversation with him. Even sent a letter thru the mail with follow ups of our conversation. He was awesome thank you!

Our family from 7 up to 80 had the most enjoyable experience today gliding above birds and trees. Getting up early enough to drive an hour to arrive before sunrise was hard but so worth it. Both Dave, the ground crewman, and Fred, our pilot, were really professional and charming. We felt so safe with them and had an experience that we will be talking about for a long time. Smooth sailing with fun ups and downs. The fellows in our family were made to feel part of the team by being invited to help prep and then store the big balloon. Thanks a lot for such terrific memories.

So... I proposed to my now fiance during this hot air balloon ride!! She said yes! :) The whole process was seamless, great service from start to finish, very caring... Setting up the hot air balloon and getting all our questions of how it all works was awesome. The flight was so amazing! If you think about it, there's no way to get that kind of view in such a quiet and peaceful and open-aired way... Helicopter, plane, skydiving... It just isn't the same. This is wow - all the way to the champagne at the end. Loved it and HIGHLY recommend it!

This was a fantastic ride! Everything we imagined. Being able to help with the set up and take down of the balloon really makes it personal. I want to thank Bob, Dave and Keith for everything they did to make this a ride to remember. It takes a lot of hard work and professionalism to make these rides possible. The peacefulness of being up in the air floating is breathtaking. You guys did a fantastic job and we will be back for another adventure. Thanks again for everything!! Laurie Heitz
