We bought the voucher about 1.5 years ago and finally got around to going for the ride. Wish we had done it sooner. A great staff that was eager to please and answer any questions. Their equipment was well taken care of and the light breakfast before launch was unexpected. Our flight lasted about an hour and 10 minutes during perfect weather. Couldn't ask for a better experience. I highly recommend their services and wish to say thanks to the crew for a great morning!
This was my second time aboard a balloon. The first was in South Africa (hot air balloon safari) and it was too expensive for a 30 minute flight which was cool but too high to get a good look at the animals.

Today I was able to accompany Colin (the pilot) on an adventure. What a way to see the country side. We could see from the Flatirons past DIA, from Pikes Peak to Long's Peak. Even tho we were floating above the morning rush hour traffic I felt so grounded, at peace. Maybe it was a peek at heaven that moved me. :-))

The ground crew and pilot were so professional. It was a privilege to share time with them. They were courtesy, personable and had the nicest smiles! Thanks for the memories.

Although we are "local", we have always wanted to balloon from the foothills to the plains. We had a beautiful day (finally, after two other tries...which no one but Mother Nature can control). Capt. Kevin and his crew were friendly, informative and professional. The flight took us from Gunbarrel to Longmont and it was a peaceful, lovely voyage. The landing was smooth and the mimosas at the end a very nice touch! Thank you!

Thoroughly enjoyed our ballooning experience this morning. All of their equipment was in good condition and we felt very safe. Thought they could have been a little more communicative about what came next, how to help, etc but overall, really enjoyed our day. Could have done a better job creating comradery amongst all of the participants (where are you from, etc) but oh well :-)

Kevin and his team are excellent and competent Boulder pilots! I have flown with several other companies and this one is by far the best and the most customizable outfitter in the area. This company has a larger basket, with the capacity of up to 12, instead of the common 6. It's not always completely full, but they do need a certain amount of weight to take off. The basket is only so big, so don't expect a chaise and leg-room -- a hot air balloon is the oldest successful human-carrying flight technology and that itself makes the ride an unforgettable experience. Balloon rides are often hot (hence the name), and you have to stand -- but what a better way to enjoy the view and stay warm on the chilly Colorado morning or evening flight!
Also, Adventure Balloon Sports has the experience to fly in conditions that other pilots do not. Launching a balloon requires very specific weather stability, and this company will go out of their way to ensure enjoyment, in addition to safety.
A ride focused on scenery takes you across the beautiful boulder hillside, often at dawn or dusk. He often reaches higher altitude than other local outfitters, and generates more air time.
I highly recommend Adventure Balloon Sports -- and I'll be calling them again as soon as the snow melts!
