Went with my Dad and Brother. 1st class operation from start to finish. Felt safe, valued and appreciated. Kurt as a pilot knew SO much about everything regarding balloon rides, safety, security and how to created a comfortable atmosphere. His wife Melinda did an amazing job providing an after ride picnic. Just SO fun!

Kurt and Melinda are so friendly and fun, you'll love ballooning with them and will learn a lot! The Methow Valley is a gorgeous place from the skies. Totally worth the early morning wake-up. I highly recommend.

We had signed up for balloon trips before, but always ended up with weather cancellations. We finally got our trip with Kurt and Melinda, and it was worth the wait. We watched the sunrise over the valley on a beautiful, crisp fall morning. We spent a lovely hour plus traveling down the Methow valley, looking at the surrounding rivers and... More

Seeing things that I'm quite familiar with - from the air - all the usual landmarks look totally different. 2) The sensation of lifting off the ground in the big basket - not like anything I've ever...

Even if you are afraid of heights, DO THIS! The feeling of rising up in a balloon is like nothing else in the world. There is no feeling of movement. You move up and up until the land looks like a photograph. Kurt, owner and pilot, has YEARS of flying the valley and is very funny. Melinda, ground crew and... More

We arrived early in the morning to find Aeronaut Kurt checking the winds while the balloon was just starting to get filled up. That gave us an opportunity to take pictures and see the balloon up close. The flight itself, seeing the river, the patchwork of farmer's fields and mountains in the background was just gorgeous. Kurt and Melinda were... More
