Had a great flight this AM with 3 of my friends. The weather was beautiful but not a lot of wind. Tom (the pilot) advised us at the hotel meeting place that it may have to be rescheduled if not enough wind, since he did not feel it would be a good ride if we just were pretty much stationary. We decided to head to the launch point and he sent up a test balloon which appear to be good so off we went. The ride was about an hour or so and the landing was very smooth. Following the pack up we went back to the meeting place for a champagne breakfast. Very nicely done and thanks to Tom, Jessica and Jake.

Our family of 5 enjoyed a hot air balloon while visiting the Tampa area. Tom piloted a very smooth ride and Jessica coordinated all the arrangements with me ahead of time in a professional and friendly manner. It was fun getting to know them and talking about our lives. They are very nice people and clearly very good at what they do. It was a great experience!

Had a wonderful experience with my wife. We loved talking with Jessica and Tom was an informative and funny tour guide. He took time to explain how the balloons worked, where it was made and answered all of my crazy questions. The ride was beautiful to see the area we live and how many trees there are. We loved every minute and felt very safe the whole time. The crew and the pilot worked so well together. Can't wait to take my sister when she is in town.
