My husband and I are still talking about this wonderful experience! This company is totally professional and the staff is amazing. We were originally scheduled a couple weeks ago but were rescheduled to do weather conditions. This was not a problem at all - I am happy they would rather be safe that risk it just to make money.

The ride begins early in the morning so its a pleasent experience with fresh air and sunrise. Our Pilot was very freindly and humurous in nature. We... More

I'm glad that we made the effort at a second attempt. the weather was beautiful and the crew did the rest. Damien our pilot gave us a view of Disney and Florida wetlands and Orlando skyline that we had never... More

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

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
