Breath taking! The Captain navigating the balloon was top notch as were the ground crew. We all felt very confident we were in good hands.... More

The highlight of our month long trip. I wasn't sure I wanted to spend so much on a balloon ride, but in retrospect, best money I've spent on a vacation "thing".

Nothing like soaring over the unique volcanic formations in a hot air balloon. On the morning I went up, there were over 120 balloons in the air at the same time.. What a sight!

which ever co use choose to use you definitely have to balloon at sunrise. Its awesome experience and seeing at least a 100 balloons in the sky together is mind blowing

You get up way too early, take the company bus to the Balloons, settle into a large basket which holds 16 tourists and 2 crew. The flight is great - Champagne and certificates after. Around $200 at this time - Worth it!
