We flew yesterday for our son’s 7th birthday. Todd (the owner/pilot) said that not many kids go up. I have no idea why because our son loved it. He was afraid of the burners at first and he was impatient at times, but overall he can’t stop talking about it, especially about the red sun (the sunrise). Todd gave all of us clear instructions and he was sure to give our son small tasks to keep him busy during any downtime. Once back on the ground, the champagne and OJ plus a story of the first ever balloons was a very nice touch. I can’t wait to make a shadowbox display of the pictures, our son’s certificate for flying, and the leaves (tree stars) he grabbed from the tree tops. This may become a tradition for our family. We loved it and will definitely do it again.

I had hoped to spend my 70th birthday in a hot air balloon. However, that was April of 2020 - the middle of the coronavirus pandemic. Needless to say, it got postponed until July. But was it ever worth the wait! The weather was absolutely perfect and the views were breathtaking. Todd and his crew were entertaining and very accommodating. I rode with my 3 grandchildren, and my great-grand can't wait to turn five so he can fly in that balloon. At three, he could only watch in total awe and excitement.

My brother and I we're fortunate enough to use a gift certificate for a hot air balloon ride over the Eastern Shore of Maryland. Todd Davis, the owner and pilot, spent several hours on the phone with me trying to schedule a trip. We had to reschedule twice because of inclement weather. It was well worth the wait as Todd was able to get us up in a beautiful air hot balloon. It was a joy to watch Todd and the two Darryls get this 210,000 cu ft balloon and basket ready for 10 passengers. Spurts of propane got us up and we flew along at heights saying between 1,100 feet and treetop level. Absolutely gorgeous views cursing along at 2-3 to 11 mph. An experienced pilot, Todd kept up a running conversation on all things ballooning. After an hour plus ride aloft we we're treated to a ballooning ritual of the balloonist's prayer while quaffing champagne. Highly, highly recommended.
