Amazing flight!

aI booked on a whim as part of an anniversary staycation weekend and could not have been more impressed. To be fair, the early morning wakeup call is just as rough as you think it’s going to be, but it’s also more worth it than you can imagine. From check-in to touchdown—as well as in between and beyond—every staff member was happy, helpful, and diligently qualified. Between the safety briefing and radio chatter, we interacted with both pilots, and each demonstrated their decades of experience (not just in Vegas but across the globe), as well as insight into local lore and a general affability that would put even the most nervous flyer at ease. That said, special callout for our pilot: Casey. He made the unpredictable and nerve-wracking feat of piloting a balloon even a few miles seem as wistful as the ground drifting by a mile beneath us. Beyond that, he (along with the rest of the crew) embodied hospitality and effectiveness. I may not rouse this early again for awhile, but I recommend the experience—without reservation—to anyone willing to set an early alarm and fly in real life instead of their dreams.

Not worth the money

Well you don't fly over anything but a drug town that has no police, FD or anything else so your scenic view is 80% multiple dilapidated mobilehomes, burned out cars, etc. Yes you see the sunrise over the moutain top, but it's the same you'd see anywhere on the road. That's it.

Great trip!

What a great trip! Casey was our pilot and he was fantastic. Very knowledgeable guy with a lot of experience! Just be aware that if you do a sunrise tour you will have to be up EARLY. Our time to meet was 3:45 am. I would also recommend not planning anything else for the day when you go. It says to allow 4 hours for the experience but we met up at 3:45 am and didn’t get back to their office until 10:45 am. Overall, well worth the time & money spent!

It was a great experience. The pilot was friendly and welcoming and took away our fears. Our pilot was funny and engaging through the flight. The whole crew had great attitude and seem to enjoy what they do. Service provided was shuttle, bottled water during the flight, and champagne after. I highly recommend this company.
