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

Captain Jeff Thompson made my first ride hot air balloon ride amazing. He has a charismatic personality and was happy to answer questions and educate riders about hot air balloons. The ride was beautiful and relaxing with an entertaining and friendly pilot.

The proposal was unique and the memories will last a lifetime. Jeff was very informative throughout the trip. The package was very good value. Private hire is expensive... More

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
