Original date for ride was postponed due to weather conditions but it was easy to rebook online. So glad we did this. Surreal feeling at first once you're in the air but such a tranquil place to be away from the hustle and bustle. Damien our pilot was great and humourous - best joke of the day - see that... More

We booked our flight in a hot air balloon as part of my 40th celebrations. After researching a lot of different companies we settled on Orlando Balloon due to their excellent safety records and also numerous reviews mentioning their friendliness. Our original flight was booked for Tuesday but due to weather concerns we were delayed until Thursday. Their organisation was... More

The ride with the Orlando Balloon Rides was fantastic. Every part of the trip was well thought out, organized and completed just as we had hoped. We were picked up before sunrise at the Raddison Resort in Kississimme. I suggest staying there or nearby since 'zero dark thirty' comes very quickly. The ballooning staff is very professional. They drove us... More

Despite the very early start it was certainly worth every penny. We were one of 7 Balloons that all took off from the same field. What an experience to watch all 7 prepare for take off. Great fun to help get the balloon ready and then once aboard you take to the sky such a lovely event. Our Pilot was... More

A very early start but totally worth it. We got to help set up before we took off. The flight was so tranquil. Not exactly romantic when you are sharing the flight with 12 other people :) but nice all the same. When we landed we got some champagne and had pictures taken. When we got back to the office,...

We have been on a few Balloon Rides over the years with a couple of companies. The first time was the best (ah, isn't it always....) as this was a new experience. The next few - not so good. A mixture of boring pilots and boring views . This was the problem last time as we flew over swampland for... More
