This was my first time in a hotair balloon. Don was an awesome pilot and the whole experience was great! Would definitely do it again!


This is a GREAT company! Go with confidence knowing you’re in good hands. Every member of this team was knowledgeable, professional, and knew what they were doing. They are a great group of fun people who made you feel comfortable. The views were amazing, and my daughter and I considered this the highlight of our week in South Dakota.


My husband and I took our hot air balloon flight in early June. The weather was great as was our pilot. Our first scheduled flight was cancelled due to weather but we were able to reschedule for 2 days later. The entire experience was wonderful!

Awesome experience from start to finish. Our pilot was fun and informative while making everyone feel safe and at ease. There were three balloons that launched from the same area which made it even more exciting and beautiful.


This was an amazing experience! We four thoroughly enjoyed the magnificent views from the balloon as our pilot and his crew guided the balloon through the air. The ride was so peaceful and we recommend this opportunity to all.


Mike was a great pilot. He answered a gazillion questions and has a great sense of humor! Definitely recommend these guys.


Coming from CT we wanted to have a special experience seeing the Black Hills. Our pilots Damian and Kay were professional, interesting and fun. The ground crew was top notch. From meeting up in town to watching the balloons inflate to the flight to the end was beyond belief. We loved it!


Our flight was remarkable from start to finish! The flight and ground crews were efficient, professional, and informative. We had perfect weather to clearly view panoramic views of the Black Hills!
