A Bucket List item check marked! I was given a gift certificate by my hubby. I took my flight this morning, Mother's Day. My experience up in the air with Petra was wonderful. This is coming from a person who gets motion sick. If you are like me, don't hesitate in taking a hot air balloon ride with Petra Wilson. It is so smooth, fun, and enjoyable. The Hot Springs area is beautiful from the air The sights, the sounds are clear. Petra and her crew are friendly, knowledgeable, and attentive. Thank you Western Horizons!!

Great experience flying with Petra, thanks to the whole crew especially Josh, who reminded us a lot of Alex Honnold :) The weather was surprisingly windy for our original reservation on Tuesday morning and just when we thought it's not gonna happen we found a sunny and calm afternoon, thank you Petra for keep monitoring the weather and sending us the update! Petra is extremely professional and knowledgeable, she shared with us a lot of balloon operation technical details, local stories about flying around hot springs and some interesting flying experiences Highly recommended to anyone visiting south dakota and looking for a unique flying experience

We had an amazing time flying with Petra this morning. This was our first ride in a balloon and it was unforgettable. The views were spectacular and Petra’s knowledge and skills were incredible. A big thank you to her crew who made the experience flawless. I would highly recommend this team to anyone wanting to try this fun adventure. Thanks again Petra and crew! We had a blast.
