What an amazing experience. I set this event up for my staff and we all absolutely loved it. We would definitely do it again. The entire staff from the pilot to the chase crew were amazing. We would highly recommend as an adventure to add to your bucket list. We all felt very safe at all times. Thank you for making this an event we will remember for a lifetime.

Exhilarating Ride! I am afraid of heights but didn't feel any sensation of being above the ground in the balloon. The ride is peaceful and calming. I would definitely recommend this ride to anyone even someone afraid of heights. It is a check off the bucket list and well worth it.

Would certainly recommend to anyone looking to do a hot air balloon ride in Orlando. Perfectly organised. I received an email the evening before saying the flight was 'on hold' and to call at 4.45 am when a further weather check had been undertaken. On waking I'd received an email at 4.30 am saying the flight was a go. Meeting point easy to find. Safety clearly a priority. Mike our pilot was knowledgeable (and occasionally funny) and we had a smooth comfortable ride.

Hot Air Balloon in Orlando We wanted to have a thrilling experience and booked the Sunrise Hot Air Balloon excursion via Viator in Orlando. Their service was good but the only hiccup was about the location where we had to start our excursion. It wasn’t clearly indicated as there were no transfers and we went directly from our hotel. We reached the location at 04H00 a.m and it was pitch black with no signs. We waited for some time and finally one of the organizers came they gave us all the instructions and we had to sign the disclaimer form and we were transferred in a van to the location to board the hot air balloon. We were a group of 3 friends and we were excited for the adventure. They started to set the balloon and we met some other guests from different countries. There was one lady who was very scared and she was praying and yet she wanted to feel that experience. Each team had a pilot, the team took time to inflate as they met with some difficulties. Finally they managed to fix it and we went inside. We were again given useful instructions and tips which were helpful. We went through the Orlando city where the balloon was gliding over the forests, the posh area, the celebrities houses, the water waters. From far you could see Disney but they are not authorized to fly above the theme park. The view was gorgeous and we had a spectacular view of the sun rise at a high altitude. It was an incredible experience and we were given useful information and some history on the area. It was awesome and my friends and I were having lovely moments. The lady who was scared at the beginning was enjoying too and told us was a beauty and a lifetime experience. We had nice pictures and we had the opportunity to see the sunrise and the moon set. The pilot was welcoming and answering each and everyone’s questions. It was finally time to land and we landed in a field near the lovely gated houses. We were once more transferred to the area where we boarded the van. There was a nice party organized where champagne and light snacks were served and we were awarded a flight certificate by our pilot. It was great fun as it was the first time that we experienced the Hot Air Balloon. Would suggest though that the organizers check and get their materials fixed prior a ride. As it make guests feel uncomfortable, impatient and security wise it leaves a bad impression. We wasted a lot of time and we could see the sunrise inland rather having that magical view from top. Yet it was a nice experience though.
