Globo San Miguel is a well-run enterprise focused on safety and the enjoyment of passengers in the balloon basket. We were picked up promptly in town, driven to the launch site, watched as 4 workers efficiently inflated the balloon in about 12 minutes and off we went! It is a beautiful way to see the area, we were never very... More

This was our first hot air ballon ride and we absolutely loved it! I was initially a bit apprehensive about doing this together with my wife and 3 small children (including our boy who is just 2 and a half years old), but everything was so well organized and executed. Reservation process was very simple, just 2 emails and the... More

My wife and I flew with Globo San Miguel in Oct. 2016 - our first time in a balloon! She was a little anxious before the flight but afterwards was totally pumped that we went! The flight was serene, peaceful, and yet exciting at the same time. There was never that feeling of leaving your stomach at the top of... More

We spent 80 minutes in the air just north of San Miguel de Allende earlier this week. Both the crew and equipment were first class and Captain Leonardo was very competent. I took 200 pictures and enjoyed the sunrise. The post flight breakfast was wonderful. Just do it. Mike

Taking a hot air balloon ride was on my "bucket list", and the ride with Globo San Miguel did not disappoint. My daughters and I agree it was a highlight of our ten days in San Miguel. Our pilot was Jay, and his professionalism and years of experience put us totally at ease. Gliding silently over the city in the... More

Since it was during the Christmas Holidays it was impossible to get a last minute reservation, but we really wanted to fly, so we went on standby status and got a call from Globo the night before flying. Glad we did, it was the highlight of the San Miguel trip! We were fortunate enough to get to fly with Jay... More

Although we made a reservation one month in advance and recieved a confirmation, they cancelled our flight the night before with no explanation or apology! The weather was wonderful, so that was not the reason. The day before our scheduled flight (dec 26) I had emailed, texted, and left messages on their two phone lines to inquire what time we... More

My first time in a balloon - and I loved it. My sister was very nervous but was actually encouraged when we didn't get to go up on the first day, due to weather conditions. She was so impressed with our Captain and the whole crew that she agreed to try again the next day! Extremely professional and friendly team... More

This review is coming from a man deathly afraid of heights. I faced my fear with Globo and the experience could not have been better. Calm professional and sympathetic staff made the whole morning so amazing and the 4 star breakfast was a bonus. Thank you Globo.
