We arrived at the meeting spot a little early to grab a donut. We were very excited about our adventure in the air! John our expert balloon driver was friendly, attentive, informative with the area, and didn't mind all the questions. We topped at 7,000 ft, it was so beautiful and peaceful. I am glad I've had my hot air... More

We had a great trip yesterday with Apex balloons. It started off a little weird as where we first went didn't work wind wise so we turned around and went elsewhere-where 6 other balloons took off just ahead of us, but from that point on it was amazing. John, the owner and pilot, fell in love with ballooning at the... More

Beautiful views from 7000 ft, and Jon provided us with a celebratory bottle of champange to finish our experience. Definitely a must... More

Taylor, our balloon operator, called my wife and me the night before to confirm our early morning flight the next day. We met him promptly the next morning at the meet up spot and we were delighted to find that we were the only two on the flight. We drove to the first location and met up with some other... More

John and his crew spend several months in Albuquerque piloting balloons and providing rides of a lifetime!.These folks are professionals to the max! They went above and beyond to... More

Captain Chad and his crew gave us an awesome flight. We took off from the local airport with one other balloon. Chad took us up high enough for a great view of the NYC skyline and our flight path took us over some beautiful Somerset County farms. We landed in a large front yard and the neighbors came out on...
