We had a BLAST!!! Bob (pilot), Marty (Chief Flight Attendant Extraordinaire), and Cole (Ground Crew) are hilarious! This was our first time in a hot air balloon and it certainly won't be our last. From watching (and helping them set up) to our ultra smooth liftoff, to the stunning views, to the smooth and tranquil ride, to the ultra soft... More

Flying with Bob and his crew exceeded our expectations! They took great time and care to explain each detail of what to expect, were extremely knowledgable and professional and were also great fun to be around! It was an incredible adventure and one we will never forget. The ride was so smooth, peaceful and breathtaking! We hope we can fly... More

I'd completed a short balloon flight many years before and my husband had always wanted an opportunity to go ballooning. So when we saw a great Groupon deal to take to the skies with Ace High Ballooning, we jumped at the chance and am sure glad we did! Our first scheduled flight was postponed in August due to a pesky... More

My girlfriend Denise and I took a balloon ride with captain Bob and crew approximately two years ago and because of the special passenger I was pleased that Bob was meticulously checking the weather and all safety precautions. We had a fantastic ride and even enjoyed the jokes by our pilot. Since it was in early fall the foliage was... More

Ace always return calls and worked with our schedule. Safety first, first flight was cancelled due to wind. Great information prior to flight. Our early morning flight was beautiful. Bob was our pilot and was very entertaining and funny when he was not concentrating on flighting the ballon. After flight activities where fun and educational. The Ace High Ballooning after... More

It was the most wonderful experience-both peaceful and exhilarating. Bob and his crew were friendly and informative. We felt very safe the entire flight and a beautiful soft touchdown.

Words can’t do the experience justice. It is simply amazing to effortlessly float through the clouds. You have to try this to understand! Bob, the pilot, is a great guy as well as the whole crew. I don’t often write reviews, but you guys really earned it! Thanks for a wonderful time!
