My husband and I went on a hot air balloon ride wit the Santa Fe Balloon Company. It was a unique event and the people in the company especially Johnny and Jeanne, were great. Johnny is not only a safety conscious and expert pilot and a character in and of himself. My husband does not like heights. He loved the... More

As a person who had never been to this area, Johnny was a big help, a sample of the warmth and hospitality that we experienced our who time in the area. We came in for the Balloon Festival and was so glad we waited to fly with Johnny, Sol and company. We flew over the Espanola valley and it was... More

Johnny, Jeanne and Sol made out first ballooning trip worth every penny and more!! Honestly, I was very nervous, having never flown in a balloon before....but there was nothing to be nervous about. Johnny's personality, knowledge and humor put me at ease and I was very confident in his abilities. His rules are #1Johnny doesn't get hurt and #2 Johnny... More

We were picked up by Sol (one of the pilots) and cruised out to our launch site where we met Johnny and the rest of the group that was going up. There were enough people that two balloons launched. The weather was perfect and we had the opportunity to not only ascend for an eagle's-eye view of the terrain, but... More

Johnny picked us up at our RV campground in Santa Fe. We had a great drive out to the lunch site but Johnny had to cancel the flight due to high winds and storms in the area. Safety is 1st with Johnny. We tried again the next morning and it was well worth the wait. Johnny and Jeannie are a... More

This is a must-do when in Santa Fe! We've gone up twice with Johnny Lewis and his team. They take such care in the preparation and with explaining why they are so closely checking conditions that even those of us who are a little nervous feel secure. The ride itself cannot be described, it must be experienced. How to explain... More

Johnny Lewis, Jeanne and team were the best! They are so knowledgable, ensure everyone is safe, and are very amusing. We had an awesome morning. The balloon ride was perfect and the scenery was beautiful. We learned so much about hot air balloons and had some great laughs. Santa Fe Balloons goes all out and ends with a champagne toast...

My husband and I booked the flight for our 10 year anniversary. We enjoyed the entire process of driving out to the site, watching the sunrise and visiting with Johnny. He makes you feel right at home and you leave feeling like you have known him your entire life. The balloon ride was truly unforgettable. I was anxious about being... More

Jennifer picked us up at our resort and told us what to expect as we road to the launch site. She was great. Johnny walked us through the process as his superb team got the balloons ready. Johnny is a fantastic pilot and an intriguing character. The flight is through desert with no buildings, towers, or power lines. They are... More

Johnny picked us up at our hotel lobby at 5:00 am. We took a short trip outside of Santa Fe prosper for our ride. We saw an absolutely breathtaking sunrise, then were soon up in the air. The views were amazing, the ride was smooth and you always felt safe in the hands of Johnny Lewis. Once back on the... More
