My family had the most wonderful time with Balloon Adventures. Our pilot Bob, along with all of the staff, was wonderful at making the trip perfect. We were really in awe of all we saw and how it felt floating through the sky. It was a truly unforgettable, amazing adventure. We hope to get to do it again someday!

My wife, two daughters and I had a fabulous time on our hot air balloon ride. The weather was perfect, the flight was flawless and Bob and his crew were extremely personable and professional. We even were able to literally touch the treetops when Bob, our pilot, descended to do just that. Of course, we drifted wherever the wind went, so the landing spot was unknown at the time of takeoff. Our landing was exciting – Bob spied an empty lot in a development and hit it just like a bullseye. The neighborhood was all abuzz with activity as we landed. The ground crew arrived seconds after we landed to take us back to the airport. Quite an event! The ride was about an hour to an hour and a half and it just flew by (pun intended)! The views were amazing – flying silently (except when hot air was blasted into the balloon), waving at people on the ground, seeing the balloon’s reflection in ponds and lakes, and watching traffic jams, baseball fields, water towers and, of course, the treetops from a bird’s eye view! I would highly recommend Bob and Balloon Adventures to anyone looking for a unique experience and a lot of fun!
Hot Air Ballooning is one of the coolest things I've ever done. Thanks for letting me be a part of your crew. The whole experience from helping set up the balloon to jumping in the basket, to skimming the tree-tops (that was awesome) and even landing and packing up was something to remember.
