My fiancé planned a romantic anniversary weekend that kicked off with Balloons over Letchworth and it was the highlight of the trip! We went for an early morning balloon ride and the views were not only amazing but our pilot was very personable, fun and incredibly talented! We had an absolutely wonderful time and will be coming again with friends and family for future rides! Would recommend to anyone!!

What a wonderful experience! My mother and I went on a hot air balloon ride with Lance- he was very patient, kind and funny. We thoroughly enjoyed our ride, one of a kind memories! Thanks again for such an awesome experience!

We were lucky to have to reschedule only once. Had a great morning ride with Lee as our pilot. The brothers were very careful to wait until the fog had cleared enough for us to lift off safely and we enjoyed a spectacular morning over the Park. I’ve ridden in a balloon in Albuquerque,NM and this was a better experience because the park is so gorgeous. Lee “contoured his way around the sites of Letchworth and even dipped low enough for us to gently touch the top leaves of a few trees. Wonderful experience

It was 10 years ago when we first attended a balloon festival in upstate New York. That summer day — Riding the balloon went into my bucket list. But for someone with an intense fear of heights, that’s quite a challenge. That’s why it took 10 years! But hey... I did it! And... It’s simply heavenly! Lee, Carol and the whole team are the best. Our original flight date was cancelled due to weather and we were oh so lucky to be rebooked the next morning. And it’s just an adventure of a lifetime! Balloons over Letchworth is the best! #getaway2019 #summer2019 #balloonoverletchworth #natureismyremedy #upupandaway #iloveNY #bucketlistchecked

A lot of balloons were there but it ended up to be too windy to launch. One company did lift their balloon and took some people up but it stayed tethered.
