"Lou and his staff were incredibly professional, informative, and entertaining. The hot air balloon ride provided my wife and I with a new and beautiful perspective of the Moab landscape that we would otherwise not have been able to obtain. The takeoff, flight, and landing were very serene and peaceful. Thank you very much."
Bryan & Michelle, Tampa, FL

"Lou, the pilot/owner tailored the flight to suit our family. He let the kids walk inside the inflating balloon as he explained to them how it all works. The Towers and canyons, invisible on the ground, suddenly present themselves as you silently soar high above.

The kids loved it as we silently chased an unexpecting rabbit across the desert floor before gently landing the balloon. Lou's local knowledge and genuine love of ballooning helped make our flight with Canyonlands Ballooning the highlight of our trip to the Moab area."
Greg, Eli, Izzy and Aiden S., Telluride, CO

"Our balloon ride was so special. Lou put us all at ease and after we were airborne pointed out features below. A hawk was hunting and didn't even realize we were flying silently above him. It was a magical experience! We'll never forget it."
Judy & Michael J., Saline, MI

"I loved my balloon ascent. Lou is the best! He calmed my nerves and made me feel so secure. Our morning was filled with the silence and beauty of the landscape. When we landed he gave us the traditional celebration to accompany our flight. I didn't want it to end!"
