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

Thank you so much for this review. I completely understand that ballooning is not for everyone. Your review was honest and it was kind. I really appreciate the kudos you gave to the staff especially. I think we have an amazing team here and it feels great to have that recognized. 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

Thank you for your review and your kind words. I have to say I had a cup of the coffee once I read your review and indeed it was terrible. (Obviously it was a different batch!) 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

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

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
