After researching a number of hot air balloon providers, I settled on Bob as you don't have to pre-purchase a ticket or voucher, you just need to secure the reservation with a credit card. This is extremely beneficial as if you are like me, you only have a day or two you are able to do this experience and if... More

The flight was canceled due to weather, no balloons flew this day at all. I made every effort to contact you with the info you gave me, I always ask for passengers to confirm with me day before flight for weather. I hope your engagement went well, but I dont control weather, communication works two ways More

I first came accross Bob's Balloons via a Google search as I was planning my upcoming proposal to my girlfriend.

A perfect flight, just the right balance of business with the personal touch that makes you feel like a guest, not just another number. A great touch is the memory sticks with go pro footage of your flight and an... More

My husband booked a flight last Wednesday for us and I really did not know how it would be. It was awesome and such a smooth flight. I didn't even realize when we lifted off into the sky. Bob and staff are very friendly and easy going. I just viewed our video and it was great to see our journey... More

We reviewed the company's offering balloon rides and decided to fly with Bob's balloons as the baskets were smaller and did not look like cattle trucks. We met Bob, Glen & Kenny at 6am at Champions gate, these were the pilots of the three balloons that morning everyone was very professional, courteous and very safety conscious. We took our 5...

A fabulous experience and another thing ticked off my bucket list! We would thoroughly recommend Bob and his team - they are true professionals but also great fun and obviously enjoy what they do. We were slightly unlucky with the weather on the day and had to drive around a bit to find a suitable take-off site to avoid the... More

We went with Bobs balloons as a group of 4, we had an excellent day out. Bob has a real passion for ballooning and this clearly showed in his enthusiasm on the day. Not only was the experience itself fantastic, the unexpected bonus of Bob giving us a copy of photos taken from his 360 degree camera and the tasty... More

A definite MUST! From start to finish , nothing is missed. Our safety was his ultimate concern. We met Bob and Crew at a local spot. They set up and let us help. 20 minutes later, we were floating in the clouds. Bob is friendly and made sure our trip was a blast. He has a great sense of humor.... More
