from the phone calls i made to reserve the balloon, to the staff that greeted us at the meeting point, to the pilot who flew our balloon, the whole experience was amazing.
we were given very specific instructions for taking off and landing; our pilot was very professional, with lots of experience, and his staff was extremely kind. the before and after of the ride itself were also pretty exciting: watching the balloon being inflated, and getting our champagne reception upon landing was great. so now, to the ride itself:
nothing i tell you here today will ever be compared to the amazing feeling of being up there. you feeli like you are simply floating up in the air; at one point i asked the pilot if we were moving because it just felt like we were standing still; by that time we were 4000 feet up in the air. the only sound you hear once you are up, is NOTHING! it is so peaceful, you see all the other balloons around you and it is just pure heaven. our pilot was very knowledgeable of everything we were seeing, even the mexico border! the basket had a couple of holes where the young ones can look, so it made it great for them. a couple of things to know: you do stand for the entire ride (about 45 minutes to an hour), wear a hat, specially if you are tall, because your head will get a bit warm if you are near the pilot, and bring a really good camera!
go for it!
