We took the whole family on a first time ride. Naturally we all were anxious but the crew explained everything and how it all will transpire which put us at ease. The ride was great. Seeing the sunrise peak behind the mountains as you rise up into the air was breathtaking. The serenity of it all was awe inspiring. We ended up at an elevation of 5500 ft!

My husband and I went for my birthday, both first timers. It was fantastic!! The guide was very experienced and we felt very safe. The staff was also amazing, the went out of their way and made me feel very special with a birthdate cake after breakfast. Would definitely recommend.

Jacob and crew were stellar and prepared us for a great safe adventure. Champagne toast after snd once back to office provided ample generous snacks. Great hospitality and would do this ahain! Beautiful views from above. Smooth flight

Austin and Jeff were great guides. They were easygoing and very welcoming. We were running late because we couldn’t find the place, but they were very flexible. It was an amazing experience and I would do it again!
