We had booked the ride a few weeks ago and was not able to go on the day of due to high winds. I appreciate them cancelling so they can ensure everyone stays safe. We rebooked and went yesterday. It was amazing! Pros: -I have a small fear of heights and I felt completely safe at all times. I really had trust in the pilot and he has been doing this for so long. -Amazing views. I took so many pictures but I don't think pictures can do any justice to actually being there. -The staff are very friendly, personable, and professional. -The landing was a bit rough, that being said, the pilot prepared us for it and we landed safely. (Even with a slightly rough landing I would go again!) -cute certificates and sparkling wine at the end. Cons: None. I recommend wearing long pants and proper shoes. I liked having a hoodie so I could cover my head when it got a little warm from the flame. I would recommend Okanagan Ballooning to anyone interested in hot air balloon rides.

Beautiful views of Kelowna and the Okanagan, definitely will be back for more! We felt safe during the flight, clear instructions were given and John was nice and kindly replied to all of our curious questions while guiding us through this amazing experience.

My wife and I went up with our 2 sons and their girlfriends and before we landed one of the girlfriends became a fiancé. John, Joy, along with their children were very professional and safety conscious throughout the whole flight. We helped get the ballon ready for the launch and helped with the packing again after we landed. On the way back to our vehicle we stopped at a park and they had a small ceremony to welcome us as honorary aeronauts. The quietness of the ride along with the view is something that will never be forgotten. If you are in the Kelowna area look these people up and have a ride. It is really worth the time and money spent.

My wife and I booked a flight and it was a spectacular trip. John was a great pilot through out the whole experience. As a pilot of small aircraft I was able to appreciate the professionalism of both John and his crew. They were friendly and at the same time very safety conscious. The welcome into the ballooning community at the end was the “icing on the cake”. This is a top drawer experience. I would highly recommend it. Cheers Z
