Groupon/Living Social Reviews
They were all a friendly bunch.
The message the evening before is too generic and should be updated according to the season. I overdressed. Keep up the good work. We enjoyed the champagne toast at the end.
I had a great time and look forward to doing it again
We were unable to fly because of fog and will have to re-schedule. Thank you for your professionalism. Thank you for waiting so long to continually check the weather and really trying to let us have a ride that day. I am looking forward to the day when we can go up! I feel confident in your abilitiies and your concern for my safety.
Super-friendly and professional staff. Awesome experience!!!
It was an awesome experience
It's a fantastic experience led by a very professional staff. After 2 scheduled trips were scheduled due to poor weather (glad they wanted us to be safe and have a good experience), we were able to go on a beautiful clear morning. From shuttle pickup to post flight champagne toast, this was a memorable experience. A well-done safety video was played during our ride to the launch site.Two thumbs up for R.O. Franks!
Great Job Addison!
RO Franks was consistent and friendly. They went above and beyond my expectations for this experience. It was all about the details and they nailed it!
They went above and beyond to make sure we had a memorable adventure and made it special! I would highly recommend R.O. Franks Aviation to all thrill seekers. I'm keeping an eye out for another deal so I can treat my family to a hot air balloon ride as well! Loved it.
They go over and beyond expectations. Nice, professional and you can tell they love what they do, from ground crew up.
The 3 people in my group loved the entire experience.
Thanks for the great experience from Jackson in the office who explained everything so well to our aviator and the hard-working ground crew!
Floating in the air with an expert at the helm was such a serene experience. The sounds of dogs barking, roosters crowing, and cows mooing wafted up to greet us as we glided over the valley at sunrise; Soaring over the valley floor with the hazy mountains as a backdrop will be a cherished memory for both me and my son.
We enjoyed the whole experience. The landing showed why you need really qualified captains. it was so cool how he maneuvered over trees to land us in a field. Made it look easy. Very nice folks.
Thanks for a dream come true experience!
Thanks for a memorable experience. Everyone did a great job. Congratulations on such a superb flight. We'd like to fly with you again in a different season. See you then. Frank Gurley

Yes – I want to say thank you from Deborah and Jack Harowitz, we enjoyed our selves very much and we would do it again.
Absolutely awesome! Would love to repeat the experience!
We loved our trip and would like to thank you, your crew and the weather for a great flight. Jackson is a great host.
We had a wonderful time. The crew was fabulous.
Excellent planning, communication and customer service, plus a beautiful balloon ride. Thank you!
Great ride! The workers were great. Would nfly again with you! John
The staff was fantastic, the ride was surreal and so peaceful. Couldn't have asked for more. Kudos to Jackson and all the employees!
Great ride, Great people.. A life affirming experience. Thanks to all from the office to the shuttle bus, to the ground crew, to the pilot… all professionally done with southern hospitality at its best. .
Thanks for a great first flight! Look forward to seeing you guys again in the near future!
Perfect day. Perfect flight. Well done Addison.
thoroughly enjoyed the experience. they are terrific people
Thanks for all you did (and by "you" we mean everyone) to make our flight wonderfully unique.
Keep up the good work!!!! Love your ideas for an educational video on the shuttle…. we really enjoyed spending time with Jackson and also Addison!
You guys did awesome. Keep up the great quality and warm-hearted welcome you gave us! Thank you for following your passion, so we could fulfill our childhood dream of being on a balloon!!!!! Much Love, Sophia + Cristof.
Flying in a balloon was unlike anything I have ever done before. Floating gently above the world with a pilot who knows what he is doing was an exhilarating experience that I will always remember.
Jackson thank you for giving me the courage to go up. I kept repeating what you told me and made up my mind that I would go up with my daughter. It was a once in a lifetime experience. Addison you are a wonderful pilot. Thank you for the ride!
Thank you so much for a GREAT experience!
Staff very friendly and professional.
An amazing trip – truly appreciated the professionalism, will hopefully come again soon!
I would like to see the process of the balloon from start to end.
12 of your best friends or total strangers climb in an take an hour flight – would recommend for everyone!
Was a wonderful experience! We thoroughly enjoyed the experience.
The Groupon information said it was a one hour flight. It really only lasted about 40 minutes.
Absolutely amazing trip! What a way to celebrate a birthday! Rowena is a fantastic pilot and person!
Very friendly, fun staff and an amazing experience!!! Would be even better if the fall leaves hadn't all blown away, but whatcha gonna do?
They were very professional and friendly. I felt safe; both pilots seemed very experienced and knowledgeable. And the hot air balloon ride itself was unbelievable. Definitely an item for the bucket list.
Had a very enjoyable experience
We enjoyed it very much and the pilot was very nice and helpfull, would recomend this to anyone .
Very well done…on time, were what they said they were…happy group, a very enjoyable experience…and I stayed on the ground! My husband went up and enjoyed it immensely. The pilot joined us on the bus for the ride back…opened champagne…invited anyone who wanted to join him for breakfast. I would DEFINITELY recommend them to my family and friends!
The service was top notch. I would not do this again, because I would select a different activity.
Great trip, really nice group.
they were extremely friendly and easy to work with – would recommend them to others
We especially enjoyed the balloon set up; and, our pilot/Addison was quite the professional. He shared with us that he's been chasing balloons since he was 15; he's now 31! So the company is owned by him and his mother–who piloted the smaller balloon. We were 8 passengers plus our pilot; and, amazingly–both the lift off and landing were extrememly peaceful. We were in the air about 40 minutes and loved the view. WHAT A RIDE!! J.A. & L. Marchinda
It was absolutely breathtaking!! My 3 friends and I went up in the smaller balloon with Rowena and had a blast. We had perfect weather and the view went for miles. We lifted off soon after sunrise and at one point as fog rolled in between to mountain tops it looked like a rolling river! We toasted our landing with a bottle of champagne. The whole staff and the wonderful ground crew made it a most delightful experince. Im sure we will go back.
Our pilot was very friendly with a warm personality! The group participation was fun as well! Perfect takeoff, perfect landing! Well worth the money…I would recommend a ride in the fall. The foliage was gorgeous!
Excellent balloon ride. The captain and employees were all wonderful as well. Amazing experience!
The balloon ride was cancelled twice due to weather. The couponis good for two years, so we hope to take advantage soon.
Very good customer service. Experience was great.
Great experience…Family owned and quality pilots..Would recommendthe experience of a lifetime
It was a great trip an views were amazing !!!
This is a very professional team of people, from the pilot ownersto the hard working ground crew. My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed every minuteof this experience and the interaction with Addison (our pilot), his crew and ourfellow passengers. Thank you for a great adventure! Connie & Phil
My husband enjoyed our 1 year anniversary by using this groupon.We had a great time and a great smooth flight!

It was a great experience and I really enjoyed the trip very much.
The flight was wonderful. Roweena, Addison and the crew were great.Would do it again in a heartbeat!
it was great. had alot of fun
Great Experience- Well worth the money
Fantastic flight and great people!
My wife always wanted to go up in a hot air balloon. Now thatshe's done it she is happy.
the flight was just 35 minutes not like mentioned 45 to 60 minutes.the prep time upfront and after was really long for just a 35 mintue flight. butbesides that everything was really nice. our pilot was the best.
Balloon ride was awesome. We are going again in Oct with my parents.Well worth the money.
It was more fun than we could have imagined!
Everyone was super friendly and helpful. The flight was so peacefuland smooth. My 8-year old daughter, who was afraid to go, rates it a 10 out of10!
It was a great experience and I hope we can do it again. Thanksfor everything. I will try to get some "scardy cat friends to try this"
Spectacular time. Great ride and great pilots. I would love todo it again another time.
the balloon ride was great. We had a lot of fun, and would definitelyrecommend it to our friends.
Fantastic experience. Friendly yet professional in every way.We had a wonderful time and I would highly recommend it to anyone.
Everything about it was great! The personnel were very personableand helpful. The entire experience was fabulous!
The folks were great. A little confusion on whether we could watchthe launch but otherwise a fantastic experience. Would do it again and recommendto others.
It was an awesome experience! The pilot, Addison, was wonderful,very professional. Money well spent!
Addison and his crew were great, the experience was once in alifetime. I would suggest however that they provide in their disclaimers going forwardthat passengers are enlisted to help (shocked us) and how long it takes once youland. We just barely made our hotel checkout time without being charged for anotherday. And our checkout time was noon, when you have an early morning flight you wouldnever anticipate the length of time till you are brought back to the meeting location.
It was great – we only won't return again because it was a one-timeexperience for us. We do recommend to others though!
We had a great experience. We would like to do it again if a similardiscount through living social is offered.
Very professional and individualized. Helped everyone with anyspecial needs
It was amazing!! We had parasailed before at Daytona Beach, butthis was more exciting! The company is wonderful! Very safe. We will recommend thisexperience to all our friends. R.O. Franks is the best!!!!
Great experience, Addison outstanding
Very personal attention
Great experience! Pilot and crew were very friendly and knowledgeable.Would definitely recommend!
Addison was absolutely fabulous and I trusted him completely.He went above and beyond the Groupon items purchased by including a CD with 710photos taken from balloon set-up through loading into the vans at the end of theexcursion. I would fly with this company again in a heartbeat and have passed outhis card to many of my friends. Absolutely EXCEPTIONAL experience!! I will go again!
I've always wanted to go on a hot air balloon ride, and this didnot disappoint!
Loved the Champagne toast at the owners place. Very nice touch!!!Also loved getting the picture CD. An unexpected gift that I can share with familyand friends:0)
Awesome experience, Addision was great!!
It was a truly enjoyable experience. The crew was on time and very polite and understanding. The guide went out of his way to make sure we enjoyed the experience. The guide was also extremely knowledgeable and his mastery of flying was shown by his expert handling of the balloon. R.O. Franks Aviation def. made the event (engagement to my gf) an extremely memorable experience. I would recommend this for anyone..we are both afraid of heights and it was not a factor…that is to show how smooth the ride and instructions were! I highly recommend R.O. Franks Aviation Company.
