“Don't miss this ride!”
Reviewed 29 August 2013

This was a great adventure! The sights were spectacular, the pilot kept us informed about what to expect, told us about all we were seeing, made the flight enjoyable. I'd recommend this as a "must do" for anyone!

“Skys the Limit Ballooning”
Reviewed 27 August 2013

This was the best trip ever. They were on time, professional and concerned for all your safety. The trip was a gliding atmosphere in which it make it peaceful and quite. I have waited years to go and checked many ballooning companies and they were far the best in service and views.
Thank you for a special time for my celebration.

“Sky High Adventure”
Reviewed 20 August 2013

We had the best time with our ride. James, the owner, took us up and pointed out all of the sights. At no time did we feel fearful or nervous. He told stories about ballooning, the history of Rancho Santa Fe, answered all sorts of questions and kept us informed of the wind conditions and how he uses altitude and wind currents to determine the direction of travel. Best of all, our landing was smooth and we enjoyed singing, champagne and conversation while the crew packed up.

We called them directly and booked same day. They don't do Groupon deals so they are able to manage their own schedule to maximize customer satisfaction. The lady on the phone was friendly and answered our questions with patience, and the company is family owned and operated.

As a bonus, James collected emails at the end to send us the GPS Tracking of our flight path. What a nice surprise.
