It was one item on my #bucketlist that i am hesitant to try. Why? We’ll if youre afraid of heights then this activity definitely wont help. Prior to the sked, thoughts like i might fall, or whats the safety precautions, what if I accidentally drop my cellphone or worst - what if the balloon doesnt have enough helium, how do we land, what if theres a plane..were few things I mentally scribbled to ask the pilot.

To my surprise it was sooo FUN! I am just a worry-wart who might have missed half of the experience if I didnt go with it. Oh one more thing - - you have to wait for the landing - its freakingly addictive..should have more landings than flying

The team was very organized and the experience was amazing! From the booking to the trip itself, the staff was very accomodating (esp Ivin who helped with payment issues and changing the date, even late at night he had great customer service). The captain also made us feel very secure. Very professional!

I had a friend visiting town and so booked a tour.. first the driver was late.. we woke up 330 am but he only showed up an hour later.. breakfast wasn’t the best
I wasn’t feeling well on the day and so didn’t want to risk taking the fight. Emailed asking for a store credit which is common and basic customer service but no I was denied a refund - which I could understand- and credit to book flight another day. Complete rip off
