I went with my husband who was a reluctant participant. We both had a wonderful time, and he (and I) is ready to go again. James was an outstanding pilot. Our take off and landing were as smooth as could be, much better than anticipated. James was very informative and has a great sense of humor. The gondola and equipment were in pristine condition. The sunset was terrific. All in all it was a great experience and I would highly recommend the sunset excursion with the Sky's the Limit. Marion Wilson

Sky's The Limit made is feel welcome, comfortable and excited about the trip all at the same time. It's not just the flight. It's the preparation, watching the crew launch the equipment, set up the balloon, fill it with air, and finally load us all in, all part of a greater experience. And after floating seemingly weightless, there comes the landing. Excitement cruising right over the rooftoops of a neighborhood, close enough I thought I could touch the tiles, and then a perfect landing in the field beyond. Much excitement - an experience of a different kind altogether.

I would go with Sky's The Limit again in a heartbeat.

Took our ride on August 8th and I decided to wait until my wife quit bouncing around and shoutiing...I want to go again.
Trip was fabalous from signing on with Rene until we were in the chase van with Josh and Mile...reaLLY great folks...Our Captain was James and he has been doing these flights for 17 years and still shows that he is on a high as he allows us all to soar from the sea to the foot hills. I had done this flight over 20 years ago and I was amazed at how our civilization had built homes from the sea to the hills...Gotta take this ride before there are no landing spots left.
James was a hoot as he told story after story...I was most amazed as he extended his face into the wind...tasting it and feeling the wind currents..much like an old time sea captain.
This is a must trip and you cant get any better than "Sky's the Limit Ballooning...
Just wonderful folks.

If you're up for a unique and magical adventure, than this experience is perfect for you. My boyfriend gifted me a Sky's the Limit Ballooning Adventure for my birthday, and it was one of the most amazing experiences ever! Everything about the balloon ride was great. We received a call from the staff prior to our trip to make sure we had all directions, and our captain was both an experienced and well-known pilot, and we all felt very comfortable in his care. The ride began with a champagne toast overlooking a rolling hillside of Southern California where our balloon was to launch. The ride itself was magical—like something out of a movie. There was a peaceful and exciting energy as we glided across the Southern California skies at sunset, while taking in the scenic vistas of the pacific and the colorful landscape and unique residential and corporate architecture of the areas below. I highly recommend a balloon ride with Sky's the Limit Ballooning Adventures as a way to celebrate just about anything. The staff at the Sky's the Limit Ballooning Adventures even sent my boyfriend and I T-shirts in the mail as a way to remember our experience! If you have some time and are looking for a romantic or exciting thrill, consider this as an option—you won't be sorry!
