This was a trip for myself and my daughter. It was phenomenal! It was everything we wanted it to be and more. Our pilot, Jake, was very friendly. He explained what was going on, where we were, and answered many questions from all of us! The views were amazing!! Nice smooth landing,also. The weather was beautiful, although when it was time for the crew to pack up it was hot…a big shout out to them for their work in the heat! Thank you for this experience!

Perfect way to see Lancaster County. Took the morning sunrise flight and the view was fantastic. Jake filled everyone in on what was below and details on the local culture. Smooth takeoff and landing ... no turbulence... highly recommended even for those not keen on heights.

My sister celebrated her 40th birthday this weekend with Lancaster Balloon Rides and we had a fantastic time! We felt safe, and Jake, our pilot, answered all of our questions. He took us on a tour of Lancaster County from a bird's eye view and shared less-known facts about flying. We loved our time and would highly recommend this company. The investment is one-in-a-lifetime opportunity. If you are thinking about it, just do it. You'll never regret it.

We were visiting from Washington state and we’re so blessed to ride with Jake over the beautiful landscape and farms below. This experience really gave us a new perspective and outlook that goes far beyond the fun and excitement of the ride. Highly, highly recommend it! Thanks to you and your friendly crew for creating lasting memories. 🙂

Life isn’t about the number of breaths we take but the number of moments that take away our breath. Lancaster Balloon Rides provided such a breathtaking experience. Our pilot Jake was a great ambassador for the visit and made my sister’s 40th birthday and my father’s 70th birthday incredibly special. The crew that chased our balloon was charming and funny and really worked hard to keep us safe. The ballooner’s prayer to the champagne toast was the perfect end to a perfect morning.

This was my first experience in a hot air balloon. It was amazing, we were gliding in the air. I felt safe, Jake and his crew took off and landed us safely.

My family and I had an amazing experience! I would do this again anyday. I am afraid of heights but did not feel one but scared in the air. Ask for Jake as your tour guide. He is friendly, knowledgeable, and funny. The guys who help set up, follow us in the van, and pack up were equally great. We went for a sunrise ride and it was gorgeous!

The best hot air balloon experience ever. My girlfriend and I brought tickets for a balloon ride and it was Epic! I recommend anyone who has never experienced a balloon ride to take advantage of one if presented. The airel view was amazing and we lucked out with a pilot that was sweet as pie. Bob and his wife Marie were the best!

My wife and I enjoyed a wonderful balloon flight last week. She was initially afraid of the idea of being up so high and was very nervous just before takeoff. However, everything from takeoff to landing was so smooth that it put her fears at rest. The flight crew was friendly and professional. The views of the local farmlands were stunning. We got both eagle eye and up close views of farms. It was a very fun flight, and we enjoyed watching the balloon blown up and packed up. We would definitely consider doing it again and recommend it to anyone, especially those who have never done it before. We did have to reschedule once, but were able to rebook just a few days later.

Awesome experience. More than met our expectations. Beautiful views of the many farms throughout the countryside. As an unexpected added bonus upon landing, several Amish families were there, to watch and help with the balloon. Thanks to our pilot Ken and crew.
