The whole experience from filling up the balloon to packing it up was inclusive, and fun. Everyone was made to feel a part of the whole flight. Plus, champagne breakfast after, in the sun, with happy people, was delightful.

This was a hands-on adventure. All passengers helped out in one way or another. John was super explaining everything about the balloon, steering, sights, history of the area, and made the trip wonderful.
