The pilot was great and the experience was awesome…. Until they didn’t have water. The ticket told me that bottled water was included. There was no water. We met the team at 4:40 am and are being delivered to our car now at 7:50 am Over three hours in the desert without water for my family is unacceptable. We left our water supply in the car because the ticket specifically said that water would be supplied. Absolutely unacceptable!


First time ever in a hot air balloon. Girls trip & everything about it was awesome!!! From meeting them at 4:30am for the sunrise ride. Matthew greeted us with a friendly welcome, to Shane, the captain of the ride. Idk if Captain is the right term. Met 3 new friends. One celebrating her birthday & an anniversary with the other 2. And the fellowship after our landing & the ride back to the pick up spot was so much fun. There were about 3 conversations going on at once. Shane was professional & down to earth as was Matthew & his son that was working his tail off at the age of 15. I'm so sorry I didn't get his name. As I said, it was a great all around. We came to tour the Grand Canyon but this was my favorite part of our trip🥳🥳🥳 I would recommend them to everyone! In fact I'm going to. We have friends coming in September😊😃☺️


My son and I had an incredible experience! The pilot and crew were top notch and the views were amazing!


The crew looked kind of ragged, but they behaved very professionally. Took off in time for the sunrise and then had a very smooth flight, including the landing. Our pilot was thorough and extremely careful. He was very clear with instructions. We flew over highways and fields, businesses and mountains. Saw many birds, including a hawk, as well as a coyote. The end of flight champagne toast was interesting because our pilot was very knowledgeable about balloon flight history. Great experience! Highly recommend 👌


Getting on the hot air balloon was a fun experience. Shane was fun and witty. He was very helpful in helping my son, and all of us feel safe. I enjoyed the lecture on the different type of cactuses and the exotic poisonous animals.


Yesterday's sunrise flight was awesome! Shane (our pilot) reminds me of a laid back Army Sgt. with the sarcasm and sharp wit to boot. To be honest I don't blame him for getting annoyed. He explained the landing instructions three times and the women on our flight just kept talking. It's disrespectful. Pay attention to what your pilot has to tell you because it's information that could prevent injuries or possibly save your life? Common Sense? Was he rude about addressing it? Sure. But only after she asked him to explain his instructions a fourth time. Could he polish up on his rebuttal or maybe elect not to say anything to rude, disrespectful, or possibly stupid people...sure. I thought he was funny and pretty considerate of where he was piloting the balloon. Shane made sure to fly in areas that allowed for better pictures etc. I appreciate he is straightforward and I don't blame him for not wanting to tolerate disrespectful people.


The heights the knowledge of the tour was amazing out of this world awesome experience great communication


The balloon ride was AMAZING!!! The views, the sun coming up over the mountains and the tranquility being up there…. Words can’t describe the peace I felt. Now Shane on the other hand was a piece of work. He was funny, sarcastic and had a dry kind of humor. He was very informative but didn’t like ANY input from customers. His overall demeanor was abrasive and porcupine like. LOL!!


What a fantastic ride. Love everything about it. The crew were very professional and courteous. Will do this adventure again.


The best way to spend Mother’s Day. Our tour operator was safety minded, engaging and competitive. We loved the fact that he was determined we would be the first to take off and the highest. The sunrise was to take place at 6 am and we were in the air just in time to see it peek over the horizon.
