Had a fabulous morning last week on the hot air balloon. Directions where abit hard to follow as we put in the sat nav code and it took us to some villas. However we managed to get there in the end. Value for money is rated 4 as we could have saved 100 dollars if we had booked through groupon.... More

Having previously done a balloon flight in the UK we were very appreciative of a present from my parents to take a balloon ride in Orlando. Had a google and came up with Orlando Balloon Rides. Booking was easy from the UK. We were given a time to be at their meeting area after having checked the morning of the... More

I had a great time with this experience. We had absolutely perfect weather, not to cold, not to hot and sunny. Our balloon operator, Damien, was excellent. Told many stories and gave us an exceptional ride. Damien is the general manager and runs an excellent company. His skill as an operator was apparent with his fly by's of trimming the... More

I missed my first flight with Orlando Balloon Rides when their email informing us that they moved was caught in my spam filter and I showed up at the wrong place. Luckily, they allowed me to reschedule. A couple of days later, I missed my second flight due to a 15 minute detour when I missed the access road leading... More

The staff (from office through to 'pilot') were amazing. They had the perfect balance of friendliness and informality with proffessionalism to give you confidence in the whole experience of booking and flying. The setting up of the balloon was amazing to watch as was the packing up procedure at the end of the flight. The flight it's self was smooth,... More

But anyways we have now resolved the problem and the coffee is much better now. Even better news, we have a new kettle on... More

As I said.. Just wow what an amazing experience I will never forget! This is a must do! We booked our flight a few weeks before we were flying out to Florida Orlando for our three week vacation! It was all pretty easy and simple to do! Just had to print out the documents and remember to bring it with... More

At no time did I ever feel unsafe. The guys have this down to a science and you can see they take great care to give you a top notch ride. The basket was so big and stable, it never waive red or wobbled in the Air. Watching how they fill it, track it from the ground and land, is... More

We booked this balloon ride for the first morning of our holiday as we were getting picked up at 5.15am and felt that we would still be on Irish time so would be awake anyway. Thankfully we were right! This is something that I always wanted to do and the fact that you watch the sun come up over Orlando... More
