I am deathly afraid of heights, however i decided to plan a balloon ride over the fingerlakes for our 10 yr wedding anniversary. As it got closer, i was getting excited for it even tho i was still frightened. But a couple weeks before we went, there was a tragic balloon ride report on the news where many people perished,...

Despite having flown in balloons many other times, we were so impressed with the skill and professionalism of our hot air balloon pilot, Carroll! His years of experience and attention to detail showed through in every aspect of our flight; from gentle liftoff, to ascending above the scattered cloud layer several thousand feet up, to skimming the surface of the...

One of the most enjoyable experiences of my life. There is no comparison for floating free in a hot air balloon. Carroll and Lee are true experts in the art of flying. I recommend everyone try a hot air balloon flight at least once in your life, and Liberty is the best in the business.

The balloon ride was a wonderful experience. The pilot was informative and explained the various aspects of ballooning without getting too bogged down in jargon. The ride was fun as the pilot showed us just how fast the balloon could climb - just as we thought we were going to hit trees! I also enjoyed the ceremony at the end... More

We flew over Letchworth State Park on Sunday, October 12, 2014. My boyfriend had arranged it as a surprise for me, because I've always said I wanted to fly in a hot air balloon. Lee was a great pilot. He made us feel very comfortable, telling us what to expect when taking off, while in the air, and upon landing.... More

My husband arranged for us to take the balloon ride. I was hesitant at first, but soooooo glad we did this. Carroll was great! Professional, yet has a great sense of humor. Thank you for making our vacation so memorable.

What a day.. we left from the front lawn of Chalet of Canandaigua (an amazing spot to stay) and had an amazing ride. Carroll and Lee were GREAT. We even set down in the middle of a field light as a feather and then right back up into the sky. This was a once in a lifetime event and the... More

From the very first contact with Carroll online, this company is professional, knowledgeable and had detailed answers to all our questions. His son, Lee our pilot and Lance, his brother as the ground crew had our trust from the very start. Lee kept in contact with us continually throughout the day and provided detailed weather updates as well as detailed... More

My son and I had a fantastic time on our hot air balloon flight a few weeks ago! I won a flight at a benefit last fall and didn't want to go alone so I took my son along with me. The crew was great. Our pilot Lee was super - so polite and helpful and full of information! We... More

Family run business, very nice people. I booked with Carroll, and met him and his son, Lee, (our pilot) the morning of our flight (October 13), along with several other members of their crew. There were two balloons flying today with 6 passengers and 2 pilots. Was a crisp 28 degrees at 7:00 am, we launched shortly thereafter. Very calm,... More
