Hot Air Ballooning in Central CT

Hey Tripadvisors,

My husband and I are going to CT for a long weekend to celebrate our anniversary. We're very interested in doing a hot air balloon ride but I am having a hard time finding reviews for the various companies anywhere. I've contacted about 12 different companies to see if our date is available and so far there are two different companies with our date that we're interested in but we have no way to compare reviews as I can't find any. The two companies are:

CT Ballooning (ctballooning.com)

Adventure Balloon (adventureballoon.com)

We'd wondered which company you'd ended up choosing-we are planning a ride, too and need some feedback.

A few years ago I signed up with a company (sorry can't remember it's name) for hot air balloon ride on the weekend of my husband's birthday (end of September). Unfortunately, the weather wasn't right and they wouldn't fly. We then booked another weekend, and they couldn't fly then either. So be prepared, the conditions often aren't safe for flying.

We never signed up again, but I do want to try it someday.

Good luck.

We had a great experience with Aer Blarney http://www.aerblarney.com/. We went out with them (with our family of four - 2 adults, 2 children), summer 2013.
