“A truly memorable experience”
Reviewed October 21, 2012

My wife and I had an outstanding time on our balloon ride and really enjoyed the entire experience. Never having flown in a balloon before, we didn’t know exactly what to expect. Ron, our pilot, and Dave, our ground crew, did a great job of explaining what we would be doing and putting our minds at ease. They were exceptionally polite, safety conscious, professional, courteous, and a lot of fun. We really enjoyed being “part of the team” and getting to pitch in and do our part. It was one of the coolest things that we’ve done together and we would recommend Bella Balloons to anyone!

“Great way to create a memory!”
Reviewed October 16, 2012

I wanted to create a unique memory for our anniversary. I am a little afraid of heights but the staff at Bella Balloons is so professional and fun that they made me feel comfortable from the first phone call to the follow up email.
Kelly from Bella Balloons called me the day before our flight to confirm that the weather conditions were favorable for our trip. When we arrived at our destination we found that there would be a total of 3 Bella balloons going up that evening. It was exciting watching all three balloons get inflated.
Our pilot was professional and knowleageable. We felt safe and secure in the balloon. Our pilot shared the history of balloons and told us about the safety features of the equipment. My husband even got to help inflate the balloon. Ok, technically he was just holding the mouth of the balloon open as it was filled with air but it added to the fun of the experience. We enjoyed getting to know the other passengers. It added to our fun. When we all hopped in the balloon, our pilot Mike lifted off so gently that I didn't even realize that we'd left the ground. We had visibility for 40 miles and the fall foliage is breath taking. We saw alot of wildlife along the way and people came out of their homes to wave at us. It was awesome.
The temperature in the basket was warm. Even though it was only 50 degrees outside the ballon basket was comfy and.....no wind. We rose up to 1300 feet.
The balloon itself is amazing and the staff at Bella worked continuously to make sure that the GPS, weather conditions, and ground crew were in sync. When we landed our ground crew was already there to help us. It was impressive to see how everyone worked together to ensure that every moment of our flight was wonderful. Afterwards we had a toast and received certificates and commemerative glasses. Bella Balloons has outstanding customer service and I can't wait to take another balloon ride.

Owners are awesome! You won't regret it. They try to keep the prices to where you can take a group and split it between all. Great customer service.

“Great customer service”
Reviewed January 26, 2012

Husband and I hired Bella Balloons for a ride from our property to celebrate our anniversary. They showed up on time, were very safety conscious, and let family help with balloon inflation and the chase. The ride and view were awesome!
