Overall rating

It was AMAZING!! I felt like I was floating in air. The ride was so smooth and the views were spectacular!! The Champagne Breakfast was delicious. I ate every bit!! I would highly recommend this company! I am typically afraid of heights, but had no issues while on the balloon ride.

It was good with a knowledgeable guide. However, we had expected to go into haunted houses and be a little scared. Mostly thought it was advertising other ghost activities.

The guide was very engaging and provided exciting stories and information. It was very varied and interesting. Highly recommended!

It was a fun and informative tour. Our guide was well versed in the history of the area. I definitely recommend.

IT WAS A BLAST!! Never have done that before but definitely going to do it again
