"My husband and I rode with Austin Aeronauts yesterday and we loved it! It was our first flight and it was our second scheduled flight date -- the first one was cancelled because it was too windy, but David called us the day before to let us know we wouldn't be able to fly. The flight itself was fantastic. David and his crew were so friendly and truly made it a special experience. I highly recommend flying with them!"

"I bought a hot air balloon ride for my wife for our anniversary. Unfortunately, things came up, and we had to cancel our scheduled flight. Austin Aeronauts was kind enough to wait patiently as it took us nearly a year to be ready to schedule a new flight. It was a beautiful morning on our flight and the entire flight was picture perfect! Even caught a glimpse of our house. If you have ever wanted to fly in a hot air balloon, these are the folks to fly with!!"

"As many of the other reviews point out booking a hot air balloon ride in the Austin area is not for the impatient type. Because ballooning is so dependent on weather and the weather here is so fickle be prepared to reschedule multiple times in anticipation of perfect flying weather. I scheduled my ride for my 30th birthday and after about 13 reschedules my 31st birthday had passed by the time I actually went up in the balloon. It was worth the wait and definitely a one of a kind experience. You are encouraged to help inflate and deflate/pack-up the balloon which is very rewarding. The guides are very knowledgeable, experienced, and prioritize great customer service. The post-flight ceremony is intimate and thought provoking.The champagne was expected but the other goodies were a nice surprise. I highly recommend Austin Aeronauts!"

"An experience like no other. Help unpack and inflate the balloon, climb in the basket, and like a whisper you start to go up. The view was beautiful. It was really interesting to watch the landing, and then we got to help pack up the balloon. All this followed by a ceremony for achieving our first balloon flight, with a certificate, champagne (water for those that want) and a fun ceremony."
