I must admit I was a little skeptical when I first booked. It was our first time and I planned to propose to my Fiancée so I wanted everything to go perfect and run smooth. After a few failed attempts to fly due to the bipolar weather Florida State has to offer, we finally got to fly. Everything was amazing!!!... More

What an amazing experience for my 50th birthday! A hot air balloon ride was on my bucket list and Thompson Aire certainly made it a total joy. Everyone likes to tease pilot Jeff about his balloon jokes ( and he never runs short of them) , but it's his knowledge of the history of ballooning that was impressive. Well, the... More

My Wife and I started our 17th Anniversary celebration with Thompson Aire and a balloon flight over the fields and swamps of Florida We had an absolutely marvelous time. We felt completely at ease with the pilot and crew and it was worth every penny.

I booked a trip with them for the 11th of JAN. and at the same time sent an email explaining I was planning a proposal to my girlfriend. They handled it all PERFECTLY and made it a very special morning for us. Our captain Jon (who was a great guy) made us feel completely comfortable with all aspects of the... More

We actually took our ballon ride in Sept 2012. Lol..I didn't find Trip Advisor until recently but I felt I still wanted to review these wonderful folks for other travelers to read our experience. I have done a tandem sky dive, propelling and para sailing so Hot Air Balloning was a must. I took my daughter and my Mom as... More

Hot air ballooning was on my bucket list, so I have built up this experience in my head for a long time. Suffice to say, Jeff Thomson and his team went above and beyond my expectations. They are very knowledgeable and passionate about ballooning and are very talented. We saw some amazing things in the Orlando area and the hour... More

We had the most amazing experience with Jeff and his ground crew. My Partner booked it as a surprise for me on a recent holiday to Florida he booked the proposal package and it was handled in the most delightful way you could imagine we were both 'blown away' by the whole experience. This is a very family orientated company... More
