Flew from Jersey C.I to spend my two weeks holiday with my family doing all the attractions at Disney but without a doubt the best part of my Holiday was my first ever balloon flight, it was worth the 57 year wait, fantastic and what a pilot Doug was, superb he could have landed that balloon on an egg and...

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.

We had such an amazing time with Jeff and the rest of his team. We were made so welcome on what was a life changing day for my new fiancé and I!! 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

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
