“A highlight of our trip!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 August 2013

From the moment we were picked up at our hotel until we were returned to the rodeo grounds after our flight we had an excellent experience. Honestly, my good experience started before we even arrived. I called with some questions and Bruce answered the phone. He was very informative and willing to help make our experience as wonderful as it could be. As promised, we received a phone call the night before, confirming the details and Captain Bubba picked us promptly as we were told he would. We were comfortable with him immediately and he made us feel welcome and got us excited for our trip. We were able to relax and watch the professional crew prepare the balloon for our flight and then the fun really began. A perfect takeoff without a moment of fear. The briefing we received before flight was perfect and we knew what to expect. Once airborne, Capt. Bubba expertly piloted the balloon and took us on an amazing adventure. While being very friendly and guiding us along pointing out interesting sites, he spoke only as much as needed to allow us to enjoy the flight and peaceful surroundings. As we ended our flight, Capt. Bubba brought us in for a safe and smooth landing. Again, not even a bit of nervousness as Bubba had proven his piloting abilities and made us comfortable from the beginning. And after landing, there was still more adventure. A great breakfast that I could tell was made with care and attention to detail, a great story from the pilot, and a beautiful flight certificate to remember your flight personalized for each person. This was a highlight of our trip and an experience that I would readily recommend to anyone who has the opportunity to fly with Above It All Balloon Company! Thank you Bruce, Capt. Bubba and crew!!

“Ballooning In The Rockies”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 July 2013

Normally having to get up for a 5:30 am pickup would put a dampener on the day but seeing the sun rise over the Aspen valley is a tonic for the soul. My family and I were thrilled experiencing the gentle ride and wildlife from blue heron to elk to bear. Our pilot Bruce was very informative, worked hard navigating the balloon so that we could see everything then he landed softly. Once we had landed we enjoyed a champagne breakfast and stories. Would recommend it for families with children 8 and up or anyone wanting to take in the spectacular views without having to hike.

“Family Fun”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 July 2013

We took our 12 year old grandson for a balloon ride. It was terrific. He had a great experience. We had ballooned before but Captain Bubba made it special. He's an expert balloon pilot and very entertaining.

“Delightful Ride”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 September 2012

Quietly floating over the Rockies at dawn. Breathtaking views. See wildlife below and birds flying below you too. Captain Bubba was a wonderful and skilled pilot, full of local knowledge. Set us down light as a feather at the end. Champagne and breakfast after the ride amid the beautiful mountains. Definitely worth the price!!
