Friendly crew. Ride was great. The champagne tradition at the end was a cool touch. Overall a fun ride and a great experience.
Very accommodating with schedules and will do everything needed to ensure you have a great experience. Very education and very experienced in the whole process. Thanks for some great memories for the family to look back on! Thank you!!
Tyler was very prompt,organized, and professionel.He knew his job very well. He provided everything we asked ( drop in water,sunset, and interesting trip ) and everyone was satisfied. We envyy his "Island Home".
Our crew was very professional and very passionate about ballooning. We felt completely safe and the route was beautiful.
It was a great experience. My daughters enjoyed the ride and I had fun following the chase car. Watching the set up and take town was also a fun part of the trip. I understand that the pilot gave a lot of information. Definitely would do again. It was also fun that their was 3 balloons.
All of the staff was very knowledgeable and pleasant. Everyone had a great time! Would definitely recommend to everyone!
You couldn't ask for a nicer Balloon Family. Everyone of the crew went above & beyond to ensure our amazing experience was exceptional, especially Ms.Brittany ;)
It was an amazing experience with breathtaking views. Felt very comfortable and safe with the expertise pilot Tyler and his crew exude. A memorable evening in the skies!.
Tyler was wonderful, we had to reschedule 2 times prior due to bad weather but he was extremely accommodating. I highly recommend this company not only for their experience and professionalism but also for the views that you get in the Battle Creek area. I really wanted a place where we wouldn't just see a bunch of highways and rooftops, this area did not disappoint! Beautiful scenic views of marshy woodlands, lakes, and pristine farmland. We saw lots of wildlife from such a unique perspective. Thanks again for such a memorable experience!
It was awsome going again next fall the pilot did an awsome and would go up again with him and till the next time you guys did a great job keep up the job you do will reamend you to all
Start to finish this experience is fantastic. This was our first experience with a hot air balloon ride and we had no idea what to expect. Magic Clouds LLC provided a complete, friendly, and professional experience. Jacques Taylor, our pilot, is knowledgeable, friendly, and answered all our questions to be sure we understood everything. We snapped many beautiful pictures and have shared these with our friends and family. Without reservation we highly recommend this company, experience, and would go again!
Great service, friendly and informative pilot, and perfect weather. We will most likely do it again. Had a wonderful time. I'd also like to thank Tyler for honoring the Soaring Adventures ticket we purchased!
Tyler was very attentive to weather conditions to ensure we had the perfect flight. During flight he was very experienced and knowledgeable which was evident in skills to navigate and maneuver the balloon for a fun and relaxed ride. He had an amazing crew helping him on the ground - -a group of truly helpful, friendly and eager people to ensure the experience was safe and fun! Thank you!
The Balloon Ride was beyond five stars. Tyler was such a great pilot. He told us he had been flying ever since he was a child. His father was the pilot and used to fly the Tony Tiger Balloon for Kellogg Cereal Company. The view was so amazing. Floating through the air like a bird you could see for miles. As was approached Gull lake Tyler lowered the balloon to lake level and touch down twice on Gull lake making a little wave. We then traveled for a few more miles and then touch down in a corn field. The landing was very smooth. After we landed Tyler presented the riders a First Flight certificate, told us the story of the first Balloon flight history and recited The Balloonist Prayer. We then drank a salute to the ride with sparkling juice. I am looking forward to another ride with Magic Clouds. Thank you Tyler and your crew for such a wonderful experience.
Pilot very knowledgable and passionate about ballooning. Beautiful weather; wonderful route; kissed the lake; smooth ride. Awesome!!!
Great experience, professional and pleasant staff. Loved it!
Great pilot and crew!
Wasn't really aware we were going to be sharing our ride with another couple. That was probably an oversight on my part. It turns out that was fine, we met a very nice couple from Jackson. We enjoyed their company. Tyler did a good job of piloting our Balloon ride , and was a good host. He also shared some humorous stories on the way home after packing up the balloon, Tyler seems very knowledgeable and confident about his piloting. It was our first flight , and was quite enjoyable !
You all were very friendly and seem very knowledgeable. Great weather helps!
I really enjoyed the time from start to finish. I liked learning about the balloon and how it operates, as well as a little history. I also enjoyed helping at touchdown and putting the balloon away. Thanks Tyler. It was great.
Pilot and crew were very nice and considerate. We thoroughly enjoyed being above the tree tops and even managed to wet our feet in Gull Lake. I wouldn'the hesitate to go.again.
so nice, from the time i came down the road every one was so helpful, nice, professional yet down to earth. the ride was the best looking down, up and over the earth the way no one else could. an airplane is so fast you read. the balloon ride was so calm and peaceful, You'll the friendly-est person any one could ask for. I was relax, secure in the space i was in. thank for making this experience so delightful.
Great Pilot. Very accommodating. Very knowledgeable staff, had a very smooth and enjoyable ride. Thank you.
Tyler Jacques was an expert pilot who gave us an exciting hot air balloon trip. All of his staff were friendly and proficient. I was very impressed with the whole experience and would highly recommend Magic Clouds LLC to anyone.
It was a great ride! The launch and landing was very smooth. Thank you.
We purchased a balloon ride through Groupon to celebrate our 4th wedding anniversary. It was more than just a balloon ride, it was an AMAZING experience! The pilot and crew were so courteous and friendly and we learned so much we never knew before. We enjoyed hearing the history of the balloons and heartfelt stories from Tyler (the pilot) and his crew. Seeing the crew work together as a team to create a successful launch, ride and landing was very educational. The ride itself was smooth and so beautifu! On our 25 mile ride, we saw the entire sunset, touched down on a lake, skimmed the treetops and saw deer running through the corn fields. It was definitely worth the money. If you ever have the chance DO IT! Ken and Michele Doornbos.
Great experience I'd do it again, on a less hot day next time, but, overall it was exciting and my so loved it!
Very enjoyable. A very enthusiastic and informative pilot that obviously enjoys what he does. Great fun and I felt totally safe
pilot and chase crew very friendly and professional.
We had a wonderful time, it was very exciting and all the crew members was polite and courteous.
What an amazing experience! Everyone was professional, fun and made me feel very comfortable. I highly recommend them!
Couldn't think of a way it could be better, friendly and professional
Tyler & Family & Crew were very welcoming, kind and very informative. They made you feel at home and very comfortable riding with them. :-) They let you participate in helping with the balloon where needed. To end to an AWESOME ride with a toast and balloon prayer was GREAT!!!! :-)
Tyler and his whole crew was truly superb . It was a wonderful experience . I would recommend Magic Clouds Balloon , to anyone looking for a memorable and phenomenal adventure .
Tyler and the crew were awesome. Danny was great beforehand, explaining how things worked and making sure we got cool pictures. The toast at the end was an extra special touch we weren't expecting. Top notch customer service all the way around!
