Had a great experience. Wish it was longer. Bob is entertaining and very knowledgeable. Felt very safe. Would have preferred to see wildlife. Only saw one bird.

Awesome, Amazing, Excellent! We had such a great time. It was exciting, beautiful, peaceful, adventurous all at the same time. The sky changed dramatically in the 1 hour we were aloft. It felt like we went around the world. It seemed like we saw the peaceful mists of Africa, the green forests of Montana, the distant plains of the midwest...just breathtakingly beautiful. Bob was an Excellent host and pilot. Super friendly and professional with a warm smile and funny stories. His whole operation (team included) was why we will be back again and again. Bringing friends and family to meet this incredible soul who knows the skies better than the birds do. Thank you again Bob for all you did. We had a wonderful ride and time!…

We celebrated our 40th wedding anniversary with a private hot air balloon ride. We loved it. Beautiful weather. Our pilot, Matt, was wonderful. He educated us on how we were staying in the air. Very cool experience. We went up with six other balloons. What a scene!

My family and I took a ride with Bob’s Balloons. I’m a professional pilot and had never been up in a hot air balloon before, so I was looking forward to doing this. Our trip started early in the morning (6 AM) and lasted around three hours or so. We made sure to dress warm as we’d be outdoors the whole time in around 55-60 degree weather (late December in Florida). It tends to be cooler at altitude, too, so that was my main concern for dressing warm. It was awesome to see the beforehand preparations it takes to get a hot air balloon together and how to fly, navigate, and land one! >>I would caution anyone to bring hearing protection to protect against the noise the burners make as they can be a bit loud when they’re in operation.<< Otherwise, the flying experience is quite surreal—almost calming. Bob was very nice and jovial. His crew was outstanding, too! We had no problems at all with anything the whole time—usually there’s one thing here and there that’s a problem, but none this time. Me and my family (wife and two small boys) had a lot of fun doing this activity. I would definitely do it again.…

Went on a memorable ride this morning. Beautiful sunrise! Bob and his crew made it so much fun. We saw wildlife and the Central Florida area from a different viewpoint. No traffic! Champagne toast afterwards. Will definitely go again.
