Gentle Breeze Hot Air Balloons...

Gentle Breeze Hot Air Balloons provides an amazing experience! The pilots and crew are friendly and knowledgable. Customers are entertained in numerous ways to include learning the history behind ballooning. There are several additional activities that are offered to make the hot air balloon experience a great one! You'll have to take a ride at this company to find out what those are. :)

I would recommend Gentle Breeze to anyone interested in doing something unique and exciting and will book my next balloon ride with them!

THANKS Nat! It was exciting to be flying with our other ride balloons and it turned out to be a beautiful evening to fly. We appreciate allowing us and sharing your once in a life time experience.

Gentle Breeze Is The Best

My wife and I had great experience. Laurie & Brian are very knowledageable and experienced pilots. My wife was very nervous and now she wants to return! The take off was so smooth we didn't even know that we had left the groud. The "pick your leaf" was so cool - Laurie lowered the ballon to a tree top and we picked a leaf and then she increased the height again - that is an experienced pilot! Since the balloon goes with the wind there is NO "shaky basket". Seriously, you need to try this - you will be glad you did!

claimed iconBusiness Response02/05/2012

I remember that flight! Any chance to do a little leaf picking by 'floating' on TOP of the trees is great. It takes 28 years of flying to make it as gentle as possible. Thanks again for flying with us. It was MY pleasure!

GREAT RIDE - GREAT PILOTS

My husband and I drove from Connecticut for this

hot air balloon ride and it was defiitely worth the trip.

Laurie and Brian were wonderful and the ride was

AWESOME. They definitely knew what they were

doing and both had the personality to make it fun.

There are many balloon rides out there but Laurie

made it special. To anyone who is interested in

flying in a balloon, I hope you make Gentle Breeze

your choice - you won't be sorry.

Mary you had patience of steel. I remember the weather was not agreeing with us until the third day. And it was GREAT! We landed in the back of the Lebanon High School. Thanks again!

A View Like No Other

As a meteorologist I have spent many years staring at the sky and the changing weather, but nothing compares to the view of both the sky and the ground below that you get from a ride on a Gentle Breeze hot air balloon!



You glide just above the treetops and fly with the birds while gazing at the distant horizon in a way not possible from the ground or even from an airplane.



What's really amazing is that you never feel a breeze because you're moving with the wind, not against it. You can wave down at the people below or just let your mind wander to distant places even though you're just miles from home.



It's a vacation in just a few hours and you'll have wonderful memories for a long time...

Rich you were right. The winds did calm down and we had a great flight flying with 2 of our other balloons. What an awesome evening.

Wow!! What a Ride

The Gentle Breeze folks really know how to put you at ease on your very first Hot Air Balloon Ride. I have to admit we were a bit nervous about trying this venture, but they made it so simple it was a breeze. From the moment we were given our pre-flight information through landing we felt secure, and well taken care of by the crew. The balloon flight was thoroughly enjoyable, and we got to fly over our neighborhood, say hi to people on the ground. We were en followed by a couple of cars who then helped with the packing up of the equipment at our landing site. We felt like celebrities.

claimed iconBusiness Response02/05/2012

Tom, that's what we do. . . make you feel like a celebrity! Now flying over your development, that was some pretty good skills from our pilots. Thanks again for choosing Gentle Breeze!

Awesome experience!

Awesome Experience that so few people get to enjoy.... A must for everyone. This company's office is at an airport and they operate balloons in Ohio, Europe and Fiji Islands.... interesting!
