First of all kudos to the team for a wonderful flight experience. The whole process of scheduling, booking and payment was a simple process. The reservation was made over phone, although there is an online booking option. Brian, was quick to respond to a voicemail and a quick credit card number away from reserving our desired slots. Also there are days when there are evening and morning slots available as well as multitude of packages to choose from. Money Saver tip: Weekday rides get you a discount from the weekend rides, so please plan accordingly My experience with a hot air balloon ride is that is entirely dependent on the wind and weather for the day, so please keep in mind that re-scheduling may happen the day before as its difficult to know the weather way in advance. One of the things I loved was constant text and email notifications for a upcoming reservation, and detailed instructions on what to expect, wear and where to meet. The flight itself was amazing. Brain Rhor, is an experienced pilot and knows his baloonist prayer and execution of that pretty well. No wonder this was the only 5 star rated hot-air balloon ride service. The take-off is pretty smooth and the whole process of inflating (and deflating) the balloon is worth watching. and you will feel like the balloon is in tango with the wind. The sunrise was beautiful and the breeze brushing upon your face is a thing to experience. Standing in a basket tethered to a balloon was certainly fun and reminded me of "UP". The roar of propane burners heating the giant pocket of air trapped in the balloon and propelling us toward an uncharted path was exciting to say the least. The most amazing experience for me was the landing (a tilted basket is worth that), and it was quite unlike any other experience I had and I highly recommend. The path itself was not too bad, although you have to remember you flying over the McKinney/Allen landscape and you enjoy the real-estate and hi-fives/bye-bye waves of joggers below. Once you land, there is champagne and muffins and cookies, so definitely I would do the ride for the minute-maid mimosas. It was worth the experience and the fact that there was no last minute cancellations and the constant wiki of information and human GPS location tracking by Brian made it all the more memorable.

This has been one of the best bucket list adventures I have ever been on! The pilot Brian, is amazing at what he does and quite entertaining. His ability to make everyone comfortable embarking in these flights is astonishing. 5 stars across the board. I will definitely be going on more flights. What a great way to start 2020!

I highly recommend Rohr Balloons. Brian and his crew are nothing short of amazing; their professionalism is unmatched. The entire experience was wonderful. Brian went above and beyond making the pre-flight arrangements; he was very easy to communicate with and corresponded quickly, keeping us up to date on all details. The day of the flight was perfect. Brian is a wonderful host, and an even better pilot; keeping everyone informed every step of the way. The flight was remarkable, and we could not have asked for a better experience.

Words cannot express the experience my daughter and I had on our magical balloon flight! I've tried booking a flight numerous of times but due to the wind factor/weather we were unable to take flight. We are so glad we chose Brian Rohr's for this EXCEPTIONAL experience! Our pilot Brian was phenomenal and very skilled. Each employee that assisted played a vital part in our experience; they're irreplaceable and was so friendly and upbeat. We were pleased with the safety measures they take, the clear crash balloon riding 101 crash course we received and hearing all about the history/cool stories about from our Pilot Brian. We are locals so its nice to know that he is giving such spot on and heartfelt history of our the surrounding cities. Brian was awesome and just made our experience more pleasurable! He interacted, joked, laughed and shared his knowledge with us during the flight. You could tell how passionate he is about what he does. The flight crews worked so well together and communicated throughout. All around, this is by far the company to go with when considering a flight. You will not be disappointed. Thank you Brian, the crew and everyone for such an unforgettable experience and for sharing a birthday with me.
