Going on a hot air balloon ride was always on the bucket list for both my best friend and me, and when we read all the great reviews about Middle Tennessee Hot Air Adventures, we jumped at the opportunity to book a sunrise flight during our first trip to Tennessee. Since it was our first time going on a balloon ride, we had concerns about safety, but these fears were quickly quelled when we spoke to Logan before the flight and Jake, Tina, and the other crew members on the day of the flight. Our pilot, Jake, was extremely knowledgeable and thorough about what to expect before, during, and after the flight. There was not a moment when we felt confused or lost about the process such as when to get in the basket and how we should position ourselves when the balloon landed. The takeoff was smooth and the entire ride was serene as we flew over the gorgeously picturesque landscape. There was always effective communication between Jake and his crew and constant monitoring of the balloon, which gave us a sense of comfort that we were in good hands. After the smooth landing and efficient packing of the balloon, we were offered champagne and Jake shared the story behind the tradition of the champagne toast after a hot air balloon ride. We also had the opportunity to view and purchase the pictures that were taken by Tina before the flight and the GoPro during the flight. We thought it was a great idea that they transferred the pictures onto an iPad for us to view instantly.
The entire experience was more than what we expected due to the uniqueness of the adventure and the experienced pilots and crew members. Although we can now check flying in a hot air balloon off our bucket list, we would not hesitate to go on another balloon ride with MTHAA if we visit Tennessee again in the future. We would recommend this adventure to anyone looking for an unforgettable experience. Thank you guys!!!
