Such an incredible experience. Worth every penny. I thought I would have been nervous or a little scared, but it was so smooth and stable under your feet. We were in the sky for about an hour and this was during the winter months. Breakfast was a bag of snacks and a juice box. Super basic. Because it was winter, I have to mention, it was freezing. Almost unbearable and I was dressed for it. Wear your warmest clothes if it’s the winter time

Everything was excellent. Would recommend this trip. The best adventure of my life.

Good service, friendly hosts, on time, easy Communication Would recommend
