I have wanted to go up in a hot air balloon ride for as long as I can remember. I finally treated myself for my birthday. I was very impressed with Randy and his team really were the best. Randy gave a step by step instruction from beginning to end, along with a great sense of humor. The ride was beyond what I had anticipated, very peaceful and almost like time had stopped. The scenery was amazing as was the height and the food was a delicious way to end the experience. I highly recommend a ride or two with Randy and his fabulous crew!

This was a fun experience. The balloon flew much lower than expected and only traveled for a few miles over the desert. No city or neighborhood views. Very, very nice staff. Earl was a riot and made the drive to and from the take-off and landing sites enjoyable. I liked the pilot who was very personable once in the air. The Balloon is huge and held 20 occupants easily.

Our experience was amazing!! I would highly recommend. It was a surprise birthday present for my sister. The staff hung a happy birthday sign from the basket, they were so accommodating, always asking to take our pics. The adventure was very well run and professional.

What a great experience! Going on a balloon ride has been on my bucket list and this was the best company to do it with! Everyone was helpful and informative. They taught us about ballooning and the area. Then they made a fun breakfast appear in the middle of the desert! Job well done! My only tip for future travelers is to make sure to take the opportunity for the bathroom before you leave! There isn’t another opportunity until they bring you back to your meeting point.
