Best. Day. EVER!!!! Sheldon, Blake & the rest of the crew were AH-MAZING on our hot air balloon ride today! It has been on my bucket list for years and it was even better than I imagined! Convenient, smooth, peaceful, entertaining, fascinating, fun, safe, incredible, exhilarating.... I'm running out of adjectives! haha! Sheldon was full of information that helped and entertained and made the ride so much more enjoyable! It was simply the best and I can't WAIT to do it again! If you're going to soar..... soar with THESE GUYS! BOOM!

Amazing experience with an excellent company! We arrived early morning to board the 'aircraft carrier' that took us out on to the lake. Dress warmly (and in layers) as it's quite chilly to start. They provided breakfast and blankets. The crew was very professional and knowledgeable and willing to answer any questions we had. Once the balloon was set up and ready, we were divided into two groups. The experience was exhilarating and the views were incredible. We were in the air for approximately 45 minutes. Our guide, Sheldon, had a playlist of music for while we were in the air and a gopro set up to take a group picture. Then we did a splashdown where the basket touched the lake and then back up and before landing back on the carrier. The next group went up so we had lots of opportunities for pictures both in the air and also watching the balloon. After the rides and the balloon was deflating they had celebratory drinks and snacks. We would highly recommend this unique experience that was incredibly well planned out.

A MUST if you’re in Lake Tahoe! Views of fallen leaf lake, emerald bay, pyramid point, and much more! Fantastic, friendly crew. Pilot Sheldon is wonderful. Only balloon ride in the world that takes off and lands in a boat over water. Loved touching the water while in the balloon too!

Felt very safe, even though I’m afraid of heights usually! So lovely and such a fantastic addition to our honeymoon. Thank you! Will be back
