One of the best things we've ever done. It's hard to describe the moment. The way the crew deal with the whole process just help us to relax and enjoy the ride. I strongly recommend.

Thank you David. Our flights are spectacular because of our guests. We aren't the easiest balloon company to find online or the cheapest. Real shoppers tend to fly with us. We appreciate the kind words. I'll pass them along to Phil and our staff.

Ira, Thank you for flying with us. Although the ride is about 1 hour, the entire experience is at least 3 hours. The reason is balloon companies don't know where they will launch the balloon prior to the balloon ride. The only thing consistent is...More
