What our guests say
An amazing, safe and unforgettable experience. Would highly recommend this company for your ballooning adventure. Pilot Blake was so knowledgeable and friendly.
We have to get up super super early in the morning. I was quite nervous about hot air balloon as this is my first experience. The staff were quite supportive and professional and guided us through the process. When we were in the air, the view was super nice and all the fear were gone. The landing was quite smooth. After that, we went to a nice buffet together. Overall, great experience.

Meeting at the pickup location all passengers will listen to a safety briefing from the balloon pilot.

Once the balloon has landed there is time to take last minute photographs before passengers are invited to help pack up the giant balloon envelope. This is completely optional but loads of fun!
