It was a nice experience and the family that runs the business and the pilot was very friendly. The weather was perfect, BUT based on my experience I would not recommend. The ride was very short (NO EVEN AN HOUR and it didn’t go high at all. The reservation and confirmation stated “anywhere between 2 and 3 hours” so I didn't get what I paid for. It seems like the setup took longer than the ride. Also we were promised some photos by text and it's been 5 weeks and we are still waiting.

What a memorable experience. If you’ve not met the Okanagan ballooning family, it’s a must! The crew as well as the aeronaut, John, were phenomenal which enhanced our ballooning experience.
BONUS: We even got to help set up. 👍

Breathtaking views, memorable experience, exceptional service. The pilot and crew were knowledgeable, friendly, and accommodating. They thought of everything and took care of it all. You can tell they love what they do, and we loved it, too!

From beginning to end it was one of the best experiences of my life. The family that run it are very sweet, funny, and wonderful people. The views and the balloon itself were astounding. It is a memory I will cherish for the rest of my life. Would absolutely recommend it!

Our Hot Air Balloon flight was a lifelong dream! We booked our flight for July 30th as a celebration for my birthday, but because of visibility due to forest fire smoke, we had to postpone till September 3rd. The weather was beautiful that day & we got to see the whole process of assembling the equipment to inflating the balloon & enjoying the very peaceful, scenic flight & then seeing how everything is dismantled! John (the pilot) & his family are very professional & John has hundreds of hours piloting balloons! John gave us an amazing tour with great commentary & gave us one of the smoothest landings we have ever experienced! John's wife Joy took pictures from the ground & sent them to us. We absolutely recommend this incredible experience with Okanagan Ballooning to everyone!

Amazing experience. Every thing from meet up, to set up to landing was smooth and efficient. I felt safe the entire time with clear instructions given at all points. Crew was cheerful and professional. Certificate of flight and Bottle of bubbles at the end were a very nice touch. I would highly recommend checking this one off your bucket list. It's absolutely worth it.

This was my second balloon flight, although the first with this company, so I have something to compare it to. All in all this flight was superb. I understand John, the pilot, had over 800 hours of balloon piloting experience and it showed in the take off and landing - both were seamless. The organization of the day was excellent too - a spectacular start to the day, a fabulous experience and worth every penny.
