What an amazing set of people! Skyward Balloons are a thrill to work with. Amazing customer service. I had a great experience during my work related video shoot visit to Skyward. The customer service is a breath of fresh air. I would recommend Skyward to everyone! 5 Star service run by top class people.

We were a very small film crew shooting a romantic scene with a guy and girl taking a balloon ride. Linda and Graham (the owners) and their daughter Megan were very accommodating and helpful for how we wanted to film the scene. It was one of those days where EVERYTHING (weather, winds, sunshine) worked out well in our favour, and... More

Bought this as a gift for my mom and dad to fly. Went with them and was able to follow the flight from the ground with the chase car. They had an amazing time. Professional and knowledgable staff. Very safe. They had to cancel the first couple of flights but after seeing a balloon in motion I understand. They always... More

We took our first ever hot air balloon flight this October and it was a fantastic experience from start to finish. The pilot and crew were warm and welcoming. They explained the process clearly including safety review and we were up and away for longer than promised. They had wonderful stories to tell and the landing was impossibly soft and... More

We were 8 in our group of which 3 of us were uncomfortable with heights! We set off on our alternative date (as the winds looked like they might be too fast on our first choice day) and we were greeted with professionalism and humour. We explained a few of us (me included) didn't really like heights and were put... More

They are really nice until you pay. Once they have your money ( no refund ) they cancel at the drop of a hat. I realize that weather conditions and safety come first but even when it's gorgeous out with 10-15 km winds. ???? The staff is rude. I do recommend the experience, but NOT with skyward.

I had a lovely ride with this company. We had perfect weather without having to re-book. The ride was very safe, landing was the best you're gonna get. I did a morning ride & it was very cool seeing the sunrise from the sky. Our pilot was very friendly and such a nice guy, as well as his son who... More

Had to wait 4 days for the weather to be safe for flying but ended up having an amazing evening that was worth the wait. Pilot was skilled and friendly. Proposed to my girlfriend during the flight and the pilot was happy to record a video of it using my cellphone. I would recommend this company to anyone interested in... More

A group of nine of us went for a balloon ride. We've been friends for a long time. It was a fabulous experience. Our pilot was extremely conscientious and made safety his priority. Skyward is cautious regarding the weather conditions. They will only fly if they feel it is safe. We were in the air for over an hour. It's... More
