Tour description provided by Viator

Take to the skies on an unforgettable adventure by hot air balloon, soaring over the Adirondacks at sunrise or sunset — your choice. This 3-hour experience starts in Queensbury with a Champagne toast before a 1-hour flight, which boasts unparalleled views of upstate New York, including Saratoga Springs and Lake George. Float above picturesque hills and valleys with a small group of up to six passengers. Bonus: In-flight photos are included.
Make your way to Queensbury for your hot air balloon ride at either sunrise or just before sunset. Before you get settled inside the balloon basket, toast your adventure with a Champagne ceremony with the captain and crew.Listen to a safety briefing and watch as the colorful canopy of the hot air balloon inflates; then float away on gentle air currents over the spectacular Adirondack region, a premier upstate New York destination. You’ll soar over Lake George to the north and Saratoga Springs to the south, with magnificent views all the way to the Green Mountains of Vermont on clear days. Soak up the tranquil sights of trees, hills, small towns and waterways that make up this charming region, and then come down for a soft landing and receive a commemorative flight certificate. You'll also receive a link to a website with in-flight photos that you can share with family and friends. Note: The actual flight lasts approximately one hour, but you should plan on about three hours from start to finish.
