Customer Reviews

This experience has a customer rating of 5
based on 10 reviews.
It was wonderful. The soft smooth ride and quiet peacefulness was amazing. We flew as high as 4 or 5,000 ft and and as low as 120. People of all ages were excited to see us flying right over them cheering and waiving to us. It’s a thrill I’d recommend to all.
The whole experience from inflating the balloon, to flying high, and landing was fantastic! Our pilot Jeff really made it an enjoyable experience.
This was our first balloon ride. I can't imagine how this experience could have gone any better. The entire Fair Winds team were an absolute joy. Jeff works so hard to make sure everyone had a great experience and boy does he deliver. Love how much he enjoys what he does! We drove from Illinois to Colorado just to have a scenic flight and I will most likely return for another trip one day and probably bring a few friends. Highly recommend!
