I never thought I'd be in a Hot Air Balloon. This was a really great experience; something that I added and checked off my bucket list, on the same day. The added bonus, was the buffet breakfast, at the end of the flight.

Fantastic ride. Capt. Jeff is the best. Most experienced balloon pilot. Watched other operators during our flight and would not use anyone but Thompson aire. Highly recommended. You get your champagne toast, and then buffet breakfast at the hotel. Sure beats the picnic lunch the...More

It's an early morning start, for sure but with with good reasons. This experience simply left me wondering "how time can move so slowly and yet pass so quickly" (whilst we were in the balloon); it was like being in a hurry to go nowhere,...More
