My wife and I had to reschedule twice due to inclement weather (high winds), but the third time was the charm! We did an early morning flight and watched the pilot and crew setup and inflate the balloon. We took off on what was a smooth, calm, and pleasant ride. We floated over the farmlands for 10 miles or so at 2000 feet. We landed on a farm and we were warmly greeted by a woman on her bike who asked how our flight was. The chase crew in the van was there within seconds of landing and we packed the balloon up and drove back to our starting point in Bird in Hand. We finished the experience off with a champagne toast. The pilot and crew were great, very friendly and professional. We learned a lot about balloon flights and we're very glad we had this experience. Well worth it, and we highly recommend the United States Hot Air Balloon Team in Bird in Hand, PA.

The take off and landing were the highlight and most talked about among our group. We were in a 10 person basket and we started off and landed like astronauts on takeoff. The scenery was beautiful, the staff were knowledgeable and professional and fun.

Absolutely amazing! Originally purchased through a Groupon (with no refunds, transfers or exchanges advertised on the ticket) but the team was super understanding when we had to reschedule two days prior due to a funeral out of state. We picked a date a couple days later on Easter Sunday and they responded quickly. Out pilot was great and friendly; we enjoyed hearing about his family's history with ballooning. We had a lovely sunrise flight that actually lasted longer than anticipated when winds shifted. The funniest was seeing dogs' reactions to the balloons! It was great to see everything from above and try to pick out different landmarks along the way. I'd been in a crash landing from a previous balloon flight and relieved that this one was just a couple scuffs along the field before the ground crew could pull us to a stop. They were really put to the test that day chasing after us through farms, across creeks and through electric fences! It was a rare experience to hang out with Amish families and their kids that came out to watch while the crew packed up the balloon. Can't wait to schedule again and hope the wind blows us in the opposite direction so we can see more. Sunrise was lovely but we'd like to experience a sunset flight as well. (Flight was actually April 2019 but Tripadvisor wouldn't let me go back that far.)
