"I had dreamed for years about 'someday' taking a hot air balloon flight. My terrific husband surprised me with a 60th birthday flight. It was even more thrilling than my conjured-up expectations! The champagne and goodies after the flight were frosting on a delightful 'cake'."

"A few years ago my husband and I had the opportunity to fly with you and getting up at the crack of dawn and driving 30 minute to Newberg - I thought for this amount of money can't we sleep in a little?? But once I arrived and saw the action and the explanation of what, how and why you do everything was so great - so interesting to see the actual process of it all. I will recommend you to everyone I see - because it truly was an experience of a lifetime and what a way to see this beautiful area we live in!"
Cindy Hausner - Peppertree Inn, Beaverton

"I liked the view, looking down at the crops and down on the fir trees - beautiful. It was exciting trying to determine where to land. The champagne toast was very special and it was an appropriate end, sharing tradition with us! I was impressed and wish more people would experience the whole trip."
