This flight was perfect. The team was attentive, informative, professional, and friendly. We had a beautiful morning to fly. What a beautiful way to see Lancaster County at sunrise.

My wife and I received this as a special gift from friends. It was amazing. I'm from the Lancaster area, but smoothly gliding over my county was a feeling that we'll never forget! We'd love to go with the whole family someday!

What a fun experience! Starting the day with a balloon ride was awesome. Cold, clear morning, seeing Philly from a mile up, beautiful farms, good company. Great first time for me!
