Excellent experience. The highlight of our visit to Asheville. Highly recommend. The flight was so great with beautiful scenery, peaceful and exhilarating at the same time. Addison and his crew was very competent and made us feel safe.

ages 7 to 78, the five in our family joined 11 others for an extraordinary first experience for all. We loved every minute! The beautiful balloon, the comfortable basket, the friendly and competent balloonist, the gorgeous April views of mountains and land and farms below, the gentle landing (such a contrast to my plane's bumpy landing the day before!) - this was a bucket list experience I'll never forget...and will look to repeat, with great enthusiasm. I took 102 photos, entranced by every step of the process. DO go!

This was my first hot air balloon ride, so I didn’t know what to expect. It was surprisingly smooth in the air and even though I am afraid of heights, I felt safe in the basket. Our guide Addison was very informative and funny. The only disappointment was a long wait while they set up the basket and balloon before takeoff and after we landed, another long wait while they folded up the balloon.

Hot air ballooning was a dream come true for me! I registered online quite easily. Then realized I had clicked on the wrong date. A simple email and the reservation was moved to the day I wanted. Communication was very well handled. We knew exactly what to expect. Addison, our pilot, was informative, personable, and friendly. I’d recommend this experience to anyone!!

The hot air balloon ride was the highlight of our spring break. The people were great to deal with. Addison was a great pilot and answered all of our questions. We had Phyllis take before and after pictures which turned out great! Absolute must do!
