This was an outstanding experience!!! Even for the faint of heart. Our pilot Curt eased the anxiety of the birthday boy and one less item on the "Bucket List". The team of guys are very personable and comedic. A must do!!!!!!!!

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our balloon ride! From set-up to landing this is a truly unique experience. The pilot and crew were extremely friendly and knowledgeable. We had spectacular views of the Tampa area with educational commentary about the area from our pilot. It was so peaceful floating through the air. What made it even better was watching... More
