Fantastic experience. Mike was an excellent pilot/ guide. We highly recommend it. Worth every penny. "You never know where the wind it t going to blow you" now has real meaning.

Amazing experience...beautiful scenery! Damien and his crew were great. Perfect balance of knowledge and safety mixed with a great sense of humor. Loved when he said we were going "pinecone picking" . Also, really enjoyed the post trip history of ballooning along with mimosas! Back at their business we were greeted by his wife and friendly pup. Absolutely recommend this as a "must do" on your next trip to Custer!

What an amazing activity. Our pilot, Danien, and his crew were so much fun. We felt very safe. It is something that we would do again. If you are in the area give it a try. You will not be disapointed.I would suggest if you are in the area for a few days that you schedule it on the first day because if the weather is bad you may be able to reschedule for another day. We had a storm Monday when we were supposed to go and Danien was able to reschdule us for Friday.

Today was our 25th Anniversary 9/21. And I could not think of a better way to start the day off! The weather was perfect 35* and sunny. Mike our pilot was extremely entertaining and made a perfect 10.0 landing. I would recommend this to anyone who enjoys a great adventure and even if you don’t Try it anyway!!!
