Hi there, sorry but we do not do balloon tours so maybe you have added your review on the wrong listing. Great to hear you enjoyed your trip though

Wild West host an awesome adventure. I strongly recommend the zipline and tubing on the river it was so much fun. You don’t get too cold and even my friend who was afraid of heights was comforted by their safety record and processes.
