Smooth as silk from minute one till we were dropped back off at the hotel .
Picked up at stupid o'clock but was needed as it was a sunrise trip!!! Driver on time and after picking up another couple we headed to the balloon site. .
Upon arrival we were met by Luis and his family . He introduced himself and explained a little about what was going to happen.
Soon it was time to go , we had never been in a hot air balloon before, ours minds were put to rest as Luis took the time to talk us though the lift off and we were away !!!
A special treat was in my mind when i booked it and OMG was it special !!!! Luis was very friendly and nothing was to much trouble for him ,answering questions and pointing out things on the ground . As we slowly drifted along, the sun rose and to say it was perfect was an understatement .
A landing point was picked and Luis piloted us to perfection , his crew were waiting for us and quickly packed away the balloon and we were back on the bus and heading back to the place where we first met Luis and his family.
After we returned champagne was served and a story ( i will not spoil it ) was told about ballooning and champagne .
Breakfast was served by Luis and his Dad,including homemade butter and cheese . Very nice and again nothing was to much trouble for the family ,we were treated like kings !! As we ate an impromptu magic show entertained us.
After we had finished Luis signed the champagne cork as a keepsake for the wife. A small gift shop is available be you are not pushed into buying anything if you don't want to .
The return to the hotel was once again nice and smooth and we were buzzing !!
We can not thank Luis and his family for making this such a special morning .

Our first hot air balloon ride ,& what an exciting experience it was. We had the most amazing sunrise to begin our journey across the lush sugar cane fields.Luiz our pilot was both informative & and entertaining. We flew over the worker villages & soon we realised the extent of the sugar cane fields. The flight was so quiet & peaceful & never at any time did we feel unsafe.After about an hour's flying we descended & Luiz entertained us with the history of balloon flight & we had a glass of very nice champagne. We even got to meet Liuz's father "Pappi"a very sprightly 84 year old. Thank you Liuz for an unforgettable experience. You made our holiday very special

We've tried several times to take a balloon ride, but no matter where we were, the winds were always too high. I think we were always thwarted because we were meant to take this flight with Luis. He's a man who loves flying and loves his family and their business. It was amazing to watch them work together to get us in the air, flying over farms, sugar cane fields, and the beautiful landscape of the D.R. It was such a wonderful experience, we can't thank Luis and his family enough for making this dream come true.

I am afraid of heights and at no time did I ever feel unsafe. Luis is sooooo passionate and very knowledgeable. Poppy’s homemade hot chocolate is the BEST.
Thanks to my hubby for making this amazing experience possible.

I was celebrating my 50th birthday and decided that I wanted to do something different. It was an amazing experience. Luis was amazing and very friendly. Gave us a brief history of his journey to becoming a certified balloon operator. The champagne toast was awesome. I’d definitely do it again if I head to the DR again.

Thank you Luís for and amazing morning.

This excursion is AMAZING! Every detail was thought of, from the pickup time to the breakfast after. It was so heartwarming to see Luis and his poppy doing this together. Luis was very knowledgeable and passionate, just made the experience that much better!!! LOVED IT!

This was a surprise for my Husband's 50th Birthday and it did not fail us with how special is started the day off.

Everyone is just brilliant, from the initial contact with Luis to the morning of our arrival and the Balloon ride itself.

It is hard to put in words just how breathtaking the ride is, photo's only show a small side of what you experience and you certainly don't get the fun element thrown in by the lovely Luis. What a host - so full of facts & information, who clearly knows how to give you an experience never to be forgotten.

If you want to do something different or special, then this is a must.

Big thank you to Luis and his lovely family/team, Simon was overwhemed by it all but did eventually come back down to earth. Good luck with the business, you a hidden gem in Punta Cana.
