My family and I went to Florida for a couple of days. I called to book our hot air balloon ride and Bob told me going up would all depend on the weather. I told him if the weather didn't cooperate on the first day, we still had the following day to work with. He said that was good thinking.... More

Getting in touch with Bob was easy. He's not the "all in a package" guy and this the thrill of flying with him. He was kind enough to pick us up from our hotel and after the preparations, we managed to see ( well almost) the sunrise outside of Orlando. The view is extraordinary from up there. You really should... More

I finally had the opportunity to get in the air. I've always wanted to do it and Bob made it happen. The scenery was fantastic and the ride was even better than I had imagined.

Very enjoyable experience. Kenny was very funny and easy to talk to. He lived to joke. He was an excellent teacher and excellent pilot. We flew low to the ground to see animals and high up to see the surrounding area. He knew the terrain and could point out different locations, like Disney. Breakfast and such after was also a...

This was definitely one of the highlights of our trip to Florida! We booked a "private flight for two" online, about 2 weeks prior to arriving in Florida. Luckily, the weather was good enough for us to fly on the day we had originally planned for and it was a brilliant first experience with hot air ballooning! The crew were... More
