Very professional, felt safe, well organized, informative and entertaining, from the instructions and what to expect, the ride itself, the champagne toast, and the breakfast that followed. Had a great time. Lots of fun.

“Great experience”
Reviewed November 20, 2012

My husband & I went on Nov 9th for our first wedding anniversary and we absolutely loved it. We live in Tampa so, we're just an hour away from Orlando and we often take little staycations to the other coast. We've always wanted to try a hot air balloon and I'm so glad we did. I would first start off by saying to keep in mind that you are taking a Balloon Ride in Florida. There's not much to see here besides the tons of swamps that people were complaining about so, don't expect to see much else. We did travel a little low like some of the other reviewers had said but, we loved being able to be so close to where we could see a lot. We caught a couple boars in the woods, came across a heard of cattle and we got really close to them, it was beautiful. We went over bodies of water and got amazing photos of our reflection. It was very relaxing and even though you have to share a basket with 15 other people, it was quiet enough where it felt like it was just us two. The basket is big enough where you don't feel crowded at all. I would suggest going during the months of November-March as those are our best times as far as cooler weather and clearer skies go. If you go anytime during July or August, you will be quite miserable with the humidity. We flew for a little over an hour, the landing was scary but so much fun at the same time. Our pilot was hilarious and afterwards, they did a mimosa toast to all the birthdays, anniversaries, newly engaged, first time fliers etc. The complementary breakfast was eggs, sausage, potatoes, coffee, tea and juice. Everyone was friendly and they all seem to really love their job. Great experience, would definitely book again but, only through Groupon because the prices are pretty high otherwise. :)

“Excellent adventure. An experience not to miss”
Reviewed November 20, 2012

Due to inclement weather our first attempt at a flight was cancelled. However, the staff moved heaven and earth to get us on a flight before our holiday ended. Once at the meeting place the staff involved were incredibly focused and professional. You were made to feel part of the whole experience. The flight itself was exhilerating, if you dont enjoy it you are unconscious. All the guys involved were extremely switched on and attentive at all times and added there own style of humour wherever possible. If you are in Orlando and have four hours spare, BOOK this adventure, you will not be disappointed. Thanks guys, you WILL see us again. Rich, Jayne and Ellie.

“Excellent Ride and Crew for the FAMILY!!!!!”
Reviewed November 17, 2012

This company is all about customer service and giving you an experience you will never forget! You are in a basket with about 16 other guests and your captain (MIKE YOU ROCK!) ballooning over Orlando as the sun is rising and seeing a different view then the normal hustle and bustle. It is worth your time and money; don't think about getting this adventure..DO IT!!!! (I am a faimly with teens and young and they all enjoyed it)
