This was my wife's and I first time in the balloon. We both are scared of heights and Addison our pilot made us feel very comfortable. Very friendly and personable. Such a wonderful and memorable activity to experience. Highly recommend.

Depends on what you want! A larger balloon can hold more people so the per person price is less. We paid a little more than $200 per person...but imagine that costs could go up from there. Our situation was not normal...others on the balloon pulled out ...that almost never happens...
