Johnny and Jeannie were the best. They picked us up at our hotel, gave us great background about their business and made the entire experience one to remember. The Balloon ride was excellent. Highly recommended.

We started early in the morning before sunrise and traveled to the take off location about 45 minutes away. The crew and owner were all great people - professional & safety conscious. The balloon ride was smooth, magical and a lot of fun!
