“Balloon Ride - AWESOME”
Reviewed January 19, 2013

I would like to recommend you to take a balloon ride with these folks.
Starting from the initial contact (booking the flight) till the end, the entire staff were outstanding.
The balloon ride was totally awesome. Extremely smooth sailing.
Danny our pilot was OUTSTANDING and extremely experienced, as well as the ground staff.
The views and memories will last a lifetime. Looking forward to booking another flight soon.
Thanks for the memories.

We took a sunrise hot air balloon ride in Asheville in early December. It was a beautiful experience. The staff was professional and informative. The meeting place convenient and offered good food. The ride itself was fun, safe, and peaceful.

“Wonderful Time”
Reviewed November 18, 2012

We just returned from our trip to Asheville N.C. I had purchased the hot air balloon ride for my husbands 50th birthday gift. My husband had wanted to do it for many years. I am not a big fan of heights and was a little apprehensive. The staff quickly settled my fears. Rick's funny little pre-flight intro had everyone laughing and well prepared for anything. Tom was our pilot and he was perfect!!! Very friendly and informative.. He made the trip an adventure we will never forget. I must add that his landing was so impressive everyone in the balloon gave a little cheer. We will tell everyone that if this something you have ever wanted to do,Asheville Hot Air is company to go with. Thanks again guys, you are the BEST!!
