This was the first time in a balloon for me and my daughter and her friend — the friend, whom I found out later is afraid of heights! The whole process of ballooning is an experience, from the early meet-up before sunrise, the release of the tester helium balloon to determine currents and direction, layout and assembly, prep, and launch, to the flight itself. We found it fascinating, and a total pleasure. Bill, the owner and pilot, made the morning fun and educational. The flight itself seemed to go amazingly well: I had anticipated going way up in the sky and having a great view and then coming back down — but this was a very skilled bit of flying, as we went up and over and around the beautiful terrain and rock formations of the area. Very impressive navigating, for an aircraft with, as Bill said, “no steering and no brakes”! And the balloon, with Día de Los Muertos and New Mexico themed art, is one of the prettiest hot-air balloons I’ve ever seen. It was designed by Bill and his wife. Just a top-level experience, and a perfect way to see this beautiful part of the Southwest.

Life-changing experience with an incredible pilot! Bill and Jennifer were an amazing team. They answered all my questions and immediately made me feel completely at ease. And they were FUN! Going up in their beautiful balloon is truly a highlight of my life. It was so peaceful up in the air. From start to finish the entire trip was %100000 worth it and I only wish I had done it sooner. I came into it a stranger and left feeling like I gained a family <3

Came here all the way from Chicago with my husband. Highly recommend bill Lee as a pilot and his crew was super friendly too. I am terrified of heights and bill made me feel very comfortable. There was a lot of communication leading up to the flight and the flight was super smooth. He would walk us through what he was doing and point out the history of the gorgeous scenery. This was truly a phenomenal experience.

We had booked our Balloon ride well in advance of our road trip. Watching the weather keeping our fingers crossed. The morning of our “lift off” Bill (the owner) checked the weather and it looked like we were good to go. Then in a matter of minutes the winds changed, He did a balloon test and made the call to cancel our trip for our safety. To say I was disappointed is an under statement, but in the fact he put our safety as well as his own first, was awesome. Bill is a Very, very nice man along with his crew of 4. I would highly recommend booking a trip with him. He is easy to work with , understanding , and most important , safety comes first.. Very impressed!
