Everything was going great until we were about to land. I was not prepared for what was going to happen next .The wind picked up as we were descending. The pilot said for everyone to brace themselves because we were coming in very fast The basket we were in hit the ground very hard and bounced and bounced again. We hit the ground so hard. The basket finally came to a stop on its side. We had to climb out on our side. It was a very scary experience. We were very glad not to be hurt. My friend had a bruised knee. We were all very shook up.

    This was our first hot air balloon ride and when we decided to thought what a perfect view for ballooning. It was peaceful, calm and enjoyable. All hot air ballooning trips start at early hour so be prepared So our pilot and his crew graciously escorted us into the road were we landed and brought in the balloon. We had a wonderful time and the sights were amazing! Definitely worth it once in your life!

    As a first timer in a hot air balloon, this was an exhilarating experience. The staff at Balloons Above the Valley were organized and professional. They picked my wife and I up at our room and drove us to the rally point. There the staff has forms to fill out and explains the before and after process. At the launch The amazing view and sensation of being that high in the air is remarkably calming, even for people who do not like heights. The company recommends dressing in layers, but it was actually warmer 2000 ft up than on the ground. Our trip lasted a bit longer than scheduled because the wind that day was calm. Our landing was super-smooth and controlled

    Goa definitely has more to it than just beaches. It is one of the most happening and lively places in India. The eternal beauty of the place and the pristine beaches make you want to visit Goa more than once. Some places of Goa will remind you of the Portuguese culture. Hot air ballooning is completely weather dependent. Flights may be delayed or cancelled if the conditions are unsafe for flying. But the view of this Goa from air is just amazing!

    This was our first experience on a hot air balloon. Valley had some low level fog that morning so they diverted balloon launches to this valley. Our pilot was wonderful, friendly and full of information about ballooning and the terrain over which we were afloat. Customer service of the entire crew that picked us up and dropped us back at the hotel was excellent. It was great adventure

    I had a great time on this, first ever , balloon ride. I was a little concerned that so many people would be in the basket but, it was like each group had their own compartment. We had a delay due to weather but it all worked out in the end.
