Absolutely amazing experience! The pilot was very knowledgeable and most importantly lively. Put us at ease immediately and cracked us up all the way. Honestly don’t think anyone could’ve done better, I would give 10 stars if I could. Most fun experience ever, I’ll do it over again, Amazing!

Fairytale. I was picked up at the hotel at half past four. It's an incredible experience as over 150 balloons rise early in the morning. Our pilot was a real pro and expertly hovered with us just a few meters from the rocks through the canyon and later into the sky.

The crew was absolutely amazing. The driver came 5 minutes before the scheduled time and everything was perfect during the flight also, the landing was very smooth. Highly recommend them!
