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.

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?
