The sunrise on the flight is truly amazing, and they even have a little Champion party after the flight.

Reaching 3000 feet and looking at beautiful sunrise view from the balloon. Extra ordinary and adventurous as a whole and family loved it.

Response from Host, Jul 2022
Thanks you for the kind words!
Woke up at 4 am to waste our morning. I am awaiting for my refund
FrankAlexis_R, Jul 2022
I am expecting my refund ASAP. We drove 1 hour to a place where we were supposed to do the flight ans the Flight had to be cancelled allegedly due to weather conditions (wind) although it was sunny and then we had to drive 1 hour back. what a way to unnecessarily wake up at 4:00 am to waste the whole morning. The operator was nice all along but this was a big let down and he told me Viator should be reimbursing my credit card right away, so please provide confirmation of that. Best, Frank
Response from Host, Jul 2022
Hey Frank, I am sorry to hear of your disappointment. I do need to be clear that we will never jeopardize your safety in order to fly. The old saying goes "I'ed rather be on the ground wishing I was flying then flying wishing I was on the ground". That being said all 8 of the pilots decided the actual weather, though forecasted fine, was not appropriate for a safe balloon flight. It's the hardest thing we have to do but we cancelled on the field. As far as a refund, we typically don't charge anything until after the flight. You booked though Viator which charges at time of booking and we have little control over. We directed them via the Supplier App at 9:32am Tuesday Morning to issue a refund due to weather cancellation. Please give the office a call if you are still waiting for that refund as that is unacceptable and I will personally call Viator to investigate on your behalf. Lastly, If there is anything for us to do to make this right please give us the chance. Jeff
Phenomenal experience!

With hilarious jokes from the crew, this experience was twice as much fun than expected. Checked off from bucket list and very friendly crew.

Unique! Extraordinaire!

Un vol exceptionnel. Expérience unique! Le pilote Jeff était drôle! On est monté a 3500 pieds et avons descendu assez bas pour survoler les vignobles et le wildlife nature refuge! Je conseille fortement!!
