Fair Winds sets the bar high when it comes to hot air balloon flights. This is not said only because of the heights reached while in the air, but because of the highly satisfying service this company shares. HIGHlY recommend.

Loved the experience and they were very professional and accommodating! It's a great experience for an anniversary or birthday. They are very knowledgeable and they give you champagne at the end which is a nice touch.

Always wanted to fly on a hot air balloon and this trip didn't disappoint. Our pilot Tony was great and he treated us to a wonderful ride with an incredibly smooth landing. Definitely recommend Fair Winds!

I've heard complaints about some company's flights only going up and coming back down in the same place without travelling much of anywhere. Does this one actual take you out away from the launch site? Are you over pretty scenery (near mountains, lakes, etc) or just over city/houses?
