I was excited to go on my first hot air balloon ride, and this exceeded my expectations. From the majestic Colorado scenery to Bubba, our incredible guide, who made us feel safer in that balloon than in any other vehicle I've been in, and who made the ride fun and informational, if you're ever going to ride in a hot...

I took my best friend ballooning yesterday and it was a definite highlight of her vacation and my summer. I have lived in Aspen/Snomwass for 8 years so this was an extra treat for me. Owner, Pam, was extremely accommodating and our Captain, Bubba, kept everyone entertained and safe. I will recommend it for all my guests in the future!... More

It is brutal to get up early to be in the parking lot by 530am - but it is truly worth the extra effort. "Capn Bubba" is an excellent pilot and his personal charm made the trip that much more enjoyable. Floating above the valley at about 1000 feet was peaceful and thrilling. We didn't expect to see wildlife below... More

Went on this ride with my sister and her friend. Definitely nervous in the beginning but the ride was so fantastic we did not want it to end. Our pilot, Captain Bubba, otherwise known as Andy was excellent. He has lots of flying hours and his passion for ballooning is evident in everything he says and does. After the ride... More

This is the best way to start the day and see the beautiful rockies from above. Cptn Bubba was an excellent skipper, host and Texan racanteur. The scenery was breathtaking. Don't miss it.

Captain Bubba and his crew were great! Our family of 5 loved our early morning hot air balloon ride. It was an extremely well run operation. Bubba went over safety instructions as his crew inflated the beautiful balloon. Once we got in the basket, it was only seconds before we were floating above Aspen. Bubba explained a bit about how...

I can't rave enough about our experience with Above It All Balloon Company. Pam was a gem in scheduling our flight, and accommodating a reschedule request. Captain Bubba was fun and skilled, and the entire team was a delight. There aren't words for how beautiful it is to explore the valley by hot air balloon; my husband and I were... More
