Outstanding balloon ride! Loved helping to inflate the balloon, taking off so easily, floating only as fast as the wind, so peaceful and almost ethereal! We skimmed the tree tops just for fun and plucked a leaf! And touch down was so super soft and light! If you’ve ever wanted to try hot air ballooning, don’t wait! It’s awesome and Dave is an awesome host, celebrating at the end with champagne! So much fun! Thank you!!

We went up with you last summer and it remains one of the best experiences of our lives! Everyone needs to go at least once!

My friend Elaine and I were fortunate enough to go on a balloon ride with Dave during the Adirondack Balloon Festival in September of this year and it was fabulous. We loved every minute of it from helping to get the balloon airborne and flying in the sky, to packing the balloon away and celebrating with champagne. A cool experience for both of us; the perfect weather and the great crew, that not only knows what they're doing but are passionate about it as well, didn't hurt either. We highly recommend Fingerlakes Ballooning and look forward to going again in the future.
