The staff were amazing and we were blessed with an absolute perfect display of balloons during the paddle. I would choose this business again in the future, no hesitation. Best experience ever.

Though we had hoped to see balloons on the last day of the Fiesta, we still had a good time last Sunday. Would love to be able to hold a spot for next year so our daughter could get the full experience.

I loved it. We planned to Float the Fiesta and I'll tell you that, had I not seen one hot air balloon, I would have been just as happy. From beginning to end we had the best time. The guides were trustworthy, hardworking and made...More
