Our balloon pilot Murray was a superbly professional, funny, experienced and knowledgeable guide. Smooth flying and excellent landing! His partner and wife, Julie picked us up promptly at our landing site, where she served us muffins and mimosa's! We even received a commemorative lapel pin, certificate, and commemorative champagne glass.

I highly recommend World Balloon! Ask for Murray! :)

Everyone I interacted with throughout this experience were very courteous and professional. The balloon ride was amazing. I though I would be nervous but the pilot made everyone feel very comfortable. It was an amazing experience and I would recommend it to anyone looking for something adventurous to do. Just dress warmly and bring some foot warmers. Your upper body will stay warm from the balloons burners but your feet will freeze if you go in the winter.

Murray Conrad and his wife love what they do and it is infectious! The trip was well organized. Murray piloted the balloon with expertise and I felt very safe. I was particularly impressed with the smooth precise landing. I felt like I was part of the tradition after they explained the history of ballooning. We can't wait to do it again! It was a great way to start off the New Year.

These guys, pilot and ground crew, did a very professional job.
I was amazed the pilot can drive the balloon in different directions by riding layers of weak morning breeze.
The splash and dash was very cool, so was the champagne a la Mongolfiere at the end.

They don't tell you you need to help put the thing away at the end which means getting a little dusty... :-) but at that point everyone is so amazed we did as told with big smiles...

We loved the experience
