 What a GREAT time!!! Vicki, our pilot, was wonderful! It was such a smooth ride. We could see everything from New York City to the wildlife below us. We got pretty high up in the air, it was beautiful! Highly recommended.

 It was a beautiful day. I thought starting at 5 pm would be too late since I thought it would get dark quickly since it is October but everything actually worked out. It was very serene and calm. The view was great.

 I have to say the balloon ride was the most breathtaking thing I've done in years. I was nervous at the beginning but in the end I didn't want it to end. It was worth waiting all these years to do. And Vickie was wonderful. She explained everything so well we knew exactly what to expect. Words really do not describe the experience. The weather was perfect,and the couple we shared the ride with were so nice.(I think sharing the same name as the young lady in the couple I'm sure contributed to the success of the day we even have the same middle name-coincidence? I don't think so!) Kudos to all involved, you made an old person's dream come true. Thanks again.

Question: Hi! May I know where is the pick-up point to go to the hot air ballooning? How far is it from NYC (Grand Central)? Thanks!

Answer: Thank you for your inquiry. The meeting place for the Hudson Valley Balloon ride is Randall Airport, Middletown, NY. It is around 70 miles from Grand Central.

Question: How do you steer a Hot Air Balloon?

Answer: The wind blows in different directions at different altitudes. The pilot can change directions by changing the altitude of the balloon. It's not really steering and part of the fun is you're never quite sure where you'll end up!
