Outstanding says it all. A must do if you visit Orlando. Peaceful, beautiful scenery, with a professional crew to keep you safe. I do it again.
Damian and his crew were excellent. The actual travel date was Tuesday due to thunderstorms on the Sunday and then high winds on the Monday.
The adherence to safety protocols will make me book with these guys again.
Great flight, beautiful landing. My wife and I have another lifelong memory
My first hot-air balloon ride was wonderful. The company was professional, efficient and took safety first as their priority and that's a really good thing. For you first timers, you should note that you may not get to fly on the day you choose because of weather constraints. So when booking this tour, you should plan to have alternate days to do this tour. Optimal hot-air ballooning, clear skies, wind gusts limited to 5 mph. One last thing, take bug repellent, the take off area is generally a big clearing and well bugs galore. Enjoy!
Everyone on the crew from Orlando Balloon Rides made our experience one we will never forget. I wouldn't choose any other company to fly with!! The very personal toasts and the Balloonist Prayer at the end our or ride was a fantastic way to end a fantastic experience!
Very well organised, very friendly and knowledgeable team who encouraged visitor participation in setting up the balloon and then packaging it upon landing. The balloom ride was amazing and included a very smooth landing!
Best Crew in the World !!! Wouldn't trust my family's lives in the air with anyone else... We had the best pilot...
I would NEVER fly with any other company. My mother takes us every year to Orlando and we fly on the SAME DAY with the same guide. The pilot, chase crew and owner are wonderful. It is soooo peaceful up there and the pilot/guide makes the trip so much fun.
Don't leave this unique experience until the last minute, you may be disappointed. Twice our flight was cancelled due to high winds. This gave us time to get to know the pilots and crew, they were amazing, safety was always the first priority. Third time lucky! It was just wonderful. A day we will never forget.
The early morning wake-up call became worth it once we got to our take-off location and started to see the balloon come to life. It was my first time in a hot air balloon and I was surprised at how quiet it was up there. Sailing over the forests (I never knew they existed in Orlando!) and houses was an amazing experience. Finished the tour with a complimentary champagne breakfast. The guides were all very professional and friendly.
Good attention to safety. I am very tall and the larger baskets and the heat deflectors kept me from being becoming uncomfortable. My wife and I really enjoyed the experience.However, I had to ask the pilot a number of questions about the balloon to get info that he should have told everybody.
