What a thrill! Take in the sunrise and endless views of ever-changing landscape in a hot air balloon. Petra and her team did a fantastic job from start to post-flight champagne. Total time in the air was 70 minutes, peaking at 1,500 feet above the ground, with a travel distance of 8.3 miles. I highly recommend Western Horizons Hot Air Balloons to all the adventure seekers out there.

Petra and her pilots, Rich and Rodney are absolutely AMAZING!!!! They are simply the BEST! They made the experience down to earth and so enjoyable for our family. The pilots were extremely friendly and personable and explained the entire process to us throughout the excursion. The pilots even allowed us to join in on the setting up and tear down process. I cannot recommend this company more as this was more than a company, it was a family!!!!! Petra went above and beyond to fit our flight in for our daughters graduation gift, she seriously went above and beyond which is a memory that we will never forget!!!! She shared history of the 1st human balloon flight which was special and we even enjoyed a toast with light refreshments after the flight, a nice added special touch! Petra and her team made our morning a special memory that will last a lifetime!!!!!

My family had a great flight with Petra and Western Horizon Hot Air Balloons in late July 2021. I flew with my wife and young daughter. We chose Western Horizons initially because we felt the smaller balloons would offer a more personal experience, and also the good vibes I got while discussing reservations with Petra. She did a great job staying in contact with us during the reservation process and the days leading up to the flight. The flight was a beautiful experience. Petra varied altitude from just above the ground, to treetop level, and also fairly high so we could see a lot of the surrounding terrain. We particularly enjoyed spotting a good bit of wildlife from the balloon. Petra is a very competent, experienced pilot and we felt secure and comfortable during the entire flight. The ground chase crew are all very friendly and laid back, and made us feel very welcome during the interesting setup and tear down process. They even snapped a few candid photos of my family ...
