What a great way to start your day - we enjoyed every minute and had a great and informative pilot with Darius!

Mark T December 2017

I recommend to everyone who is thinking of doing a Balloon flight just do it, It is sooo awesome, I thought I was going to be really scared, but I wasn,t. It was so calming and the views where a sight to be hold, I absolutely loved it 3

joy April 2017

This was a super cool experience. We got lucky with the weather, and while it was slightly overcast, it was warm and the mistiness made for a more dramatic experience. I would just say be prepared to do some work! They expect the people on the tour to help unload and then pack up and reload the balloon and basket. Granted, it was kind of cool in the end to participate in that, but it was a bit of a surprise. The breakfast after was also very good.

Anna P December 2016

It was only AMAZING!!! I would do it everytime again!!

Maxine C June 2016

This tour was amazing!

Joy S April 2016

An amazing experience, flying over the city as it wakes up was truly inspirational. Although this is not a cheap tour it really is worth every penny, a once in a life time thing to do . The crew were hugely professional and made you feel safe and in very good hands.

DANIEL April 2016

Excelente experiencia. Una hora de calma y excitación en simultáneo. Trabajo duro entre todos para armar y luego recoger el globo. Verdadero trabajo en equipo ! Fantástico Nick el chief pilot responsable.

Holly W January 2016

I have a bucket list of things that deal with my fear of heights. Taking a hot air balloon ride was on that list. Thinking that an aerial view of Melbourne would compliment that, I rose to the challenge. I did not handle the knowledge of hearing the actual height of the balloon so I disregarded it and looked at the view. In retrospect, I understand that the fear of facing something was harder than doing it. I am glad that we did the flight and I would recommend it to everyone.

Rachel F December 2015

This was my favorite part of our trip! The ride was gorgeous!!! The guide took pictures of our group so we got to take home some great photos! The weather was beautiful and the champaign breakfast was great! This is something you'll remember forever! Great way to view beautiful Melbourne!

David O March 2015

I felt this was an excellent trip ....very well organized.... very professional ....our guide, Dave, was extremely helpful and couldn't have been more interested in providing us with a good experience .......I highly recommend this to anybody that wants to experience Melbourne

Ingrid G February 2015

this was definitely one of the highlights, if not THE highlight of my trip to Melbourne. I was allowed to help with the balloon! We were in the air for 90 minutes, from a breathtaking sunrise to the start of the day, circling the core city of Melbourne a few times. To experience the quietness, the majestic movement of the balloon ride and the heat of the flames was a once in a lifetime experience only that I want to do it again and again and again!. The landing was soft and smooth and I never felt safer! thank you for this amazing tour experience!

Murali K February 2015

Nicks January 2014

What an amazing experience this balloon flight was. The crew was very knowledgeable and made us all comfortable enough to jump in and assist with the set up and tear down process. This was great fun and I met some fantastic people as well. Definitely a must do when visiting Melbourne.

Djonnie January 2014

A wonderful trip that created memories to last a lifetime. The crew was professional and friendly. We really enjoyed every moment. The experience was highlighted by our ability to pitch in and help because it allowed us to better understand the engineering behind ballooning and feel like a part of the process. Highly recommended! Kudos to Tim, our pilot! He really loves what he does and it is contagious!!!

FELIPE V December 2013

Amazing - very weather dependant but we were lucky!! Nicolas - Excellent pilot!!

Jana C November 2013

Katherine G April 2013

What a fantastic way to start your morning. It was such an amazing expereience and all the pilots and other members of the company were so great, very happy, freindly and easy to get a long with. You get right in amongst it too, you help get the balloon up and then everyone helps pack it away too, this just added to our experience.
Breakfast is also a must have!!
