Great Experience

We had a great time with our balloon flight. Would highly recommend the experience. The crew was information and kind as we had never been on a hot air balloon flight before.

I was so happy to celebrate my upcoming 60th birthday with Boise Hot Air Balloon!!! I have a fear of heights- but the friendly pilot & crew made me feel safe and secure! Right away I could see their professionalism. It was worth the trip from Long Island, New York! The gentle ride felt like a feather slowly floating! The... More

This was the first time I was in a hot air balloon and it was great. The staff was pleasant and courteous. It was awesome to watch the assembly of the balloon and its inflation. The ride was very smooth and even though we "came in fast" the landing wasn't bad. It was fun when the basket tipped forward on... More

The crew is so friendly and funny. I thought that riding in the balloon would freak me out because I am scared of heights. But it is actually so calm and peaceful that being so high in the air did not bother me. There's that first initial "Whoa, what I am doing?!" but then you just start enjoying it. It... More

My husband bought this as a surprise for our anniversary in July. The weather was on the edge but the pilots were watching closely and keeping everyone informed on what was happening. The weather changed and it was time to start getting it ready. The ride was wonderful. We didn't get too far away from take off but what are... More

My fiancé bought this private ride for us in March... we did not get our ride until October. we had to reschedule several times due to weather which was fine, the problem we had was like most people we only had the weekends free. They wanted us to keep the week open in case we had good weather. When you... More

My spouse and I were visiting Boise to see the Tom Petty concert (Aug. 2014). We thought a great addition to our trip would be to take a hot air balloon ride (our first) to see the city. We had never been to Boise before, and driving into it from the high desert is quite a pleasant surprise. Boise is... More
