We were visiting Florida with our friends. They were the adventurous ones and convinced us that we should take the sunrise ride. I am not particularly fond of heights. What a wonderful experience from getting to unpack the balloon to getting into the gondola and lifting off. It is difficult put into words what it feels like. I would definitely... More

All four of us had an amazing time on our balloon ride. Our Pilot Kim was awesome. He answered questions and made us feel very comfortable...and his landing was so much softer than expected. The whole team at Thomson is passionate about ballooning and it shows in their performance. Bravo!

A balloon ride was on my bucket list. As I was in Florida and my 50th birthday is looming fast what better way to put a tick in the box? My wife was not keen on the idea, so I said I'd go alone, but then she said NO I'm coming too. I booked about a week before our trip,... More

Wow, what a trip. A family business who were thoroughly professional from the moment I booked to the goodbyes at breakfast. 4 Adults and my 23 month old in our basket with Jeff as our Pilot. An exciting early start and briefing, followed by a test balloon and a short trip to our take off site. Balloons inflated, everyone in... More

Took this trip two weeks ago after reading other recommendations on Trip Adviser. It was brilliant, we were a party of five and had the balloon to ourselves. We booked online from the UK, and almost immediately our name appeared on the calendar. The trip was brilliant, so peaceful up there, and we learned such a lot, flying over the... More

Our balloon flight was a gift from our generous best man as a honeymoon gift. Unfortunately my husband is scared of heights but it was no problem for him to switch to the 'chase package' and follow with the ground crew by car whilst my daughter and I took the balloon flight. Geoff, who we flew with, is a hugely... More

A truly unbelievable experience from start to finish. Myself and Tina decided on a private flight and on reflection it is money well spent! The entire trip was perfection and nothing was too much trouble. This is an experience you shouldn't miss!

For that once-in-a-lifetime thrill of a sunrise hot air balloon trip - this is a great option. The pilots are award-winning professionals, yet laid back and - dare I say - funny. You will enjoy the Orlando area from a perspective that few people see, and learn a lot about the ballooning world.

Great company to go through for a wonderful adventure! We planned a trip for my parents anniversary. We made numerous calls before our flight due to lots of questions from different siblings and we always got our questions answered no matter how odd of questions! They couldn't stop talking about their wonderful time and how amazing it was! The crews... More
