IT was such an experience to fly above the city. And then the pieceful moments in the balloon. as you could just hear the people in the baloon. We flew even close to the buildings.

Captain_Flinders April 2021

We had a fabulous experience with Liberty Balloon Flights. The team that took us were amazing. They were friendly and informative. They picked us up in the city on time and transported us back at the end of our adventure. We took off near Flemington race course and landed just south of Boxhill. We had a good hour in the air. We booked as a group of six and Liberty made sure that we were together so we could truely share our experience. We felt 100% safe. I would definitely go with Liberty again.

We went on a sunrise balloon flight over Melbourne last week with Liberty Balloon Flights. We have been previously booked on 1 month prior but due to rain our flight was cancelled, on the waiting list to be added to an available flight we got a last minute call on the night before our flight that there was space available. Man were we grateful to be called up for that flight!!! Absolutely perfect weather and wind direction to fly STRAIGHT THROUGH the city, in between the building alongs flinders street. Flying low over the beach at ?Port Melbourne. Our pilot Nick with almost 30 year experience was able to get our ballon very low in crowded areas making for amazing views. flying down between trees in Fitzroy gardens and narrowly escaping the tree tops as we lifted back up. The ensures all passenger experienced not only a calm and beautiful flight but an exciting one, all the while Nick confident and competent enough to ensure there was no actual chance of hitting the trees. One of the best experiences I have ever had, truly something I believe everyone should try!! Our pilot so skilled he even scored 6 points as we passed through some goal posts on our landing in a football field. Nick and his son D'Artagnan made the whole experience (from set-up to pack up) super fun! Thanks again!!

It was a great experience. Fun and very professional! Nick and D'artagnan were our crew today and made sure we had a good time from beginning to end. The views of the Melbourne skyline are absolutely stunning.

This was a wonderful way to celebrate my 50th birthday and to deepen my ongoing love affair with Melbourne. What a charming way to view the city. The balloon is so comfortable, stable and smoothly moving that the experience is quite surreal at first - hard to believe you are actually flying and not watching a virtual reality film. The pilot Nick and wing-man Stoney were good company and Nick showed considerable skill in landing our balloon under some changeable wind conditions - we were glad of his extensive experience in the business. I would highly recommend this company and the adventure of ballooning.

Went on my first hot air balloon ride and it was amazing. Definitely going to go back and try the Yarra Valley. Nick from Liberty Balloon Flights was wonderful, great communication and professionalism. Landed us safe and sound :)

babushka2017 April 2021

The best part of the adventure was preparing and setting up the balloon to take off into the sky for the first time. Working together as a team, laughing and jocking around, seeing Melbourne City in all it's glory, really it was an unforgettable experience. I highly recommend it to anyone who is in any doubt, just do it and see it for yourselves, you won't regret it, plus it's very safe and affordable! The team is very friendly and competent, together with our pilot, Nick, who is a super experienced with 27+ years, made the trip super easy and pleasurable!

From start to finish being involved in set up flying and packing great pilot and crew was amazing love every minute of the day thanks

Many thanks to Nick and his crew from Liberty Balloons. We had a great trip this morning, departing from Geelong Waterfront in a mini bus that took us 15 minutes out of town to where we watched the balloon being set up. Nick gave us a detailed explanation on what to expect for the flight and clear safety instructions. We took off just before dawn. And we ascended smoothly. I usually avoid heights, but wasn't at all afraid in the basket. Taking photos was made easy as we just seemed to hang in the air and could get images from all angles. Sunrise over Corio Bay and Geelong was breath taking. Landing was fun, and we were well prepared. We then all helped to pack the balloon which was fun. Then a glass of champagne while Nick provided a brief history of ballooning. A short trip back to the waterfront in the mini bus and an amazing breakfast at the Wharfshed. As a birthday gift, after my initial apprehension due to my aversion to heights, I had a wonderful time. I highly recommend this experience. Thanks to Nick, Dartangan and Kaitlyn. Kathryn

A8064BFjamesd March 2021

An unforgettable experience, Nick & Christian were great guys. Made us all feel welcome and safe the whole trip. Hands down the best sunrise I’ve ever seen in geelong, made for a memorable time with my partner watching the sun come up whilst floating over the city. 10/10!

Domma587 March 2021

Highly recommend flying with liberty balloon flights, had an amazing experience. Views were breath taking.

Daisy K March 2021

The Perfect Morning! We started our morning with Nick and Christian in Geelong who were the perfect hosts, making sure everyone felt comfortable every step of the way. I had never been in a Hot Air Ballon before today and safe to say I was a little nervous, but after a few laughs with the boys and them literally running us through every step of the way I felt so much safer and just ready to get in the Air. If you have ever thought about a Hot Air Balloon trip I recommend this group so so highly. if you are interested in the ins and outs of the set up, the breathtaking views or the adrenaline rush the flight gives you this is the way to go. Thank you so much to the crew at Liberty Hot Air Balloon Flights for a morning I will never forget.

AQdam_F March 2021

In the morning the weather wasn’t the best. It was touch and go if we were going to fly but thanks to the expertise and skills of our pilot Nick, we were able to fly along the Yarra and through the city. Landing in the Fitzroy Gardens were, what seemed to be a postage stamp from above, 100 meters from where we had parked our car. Unbelievable, I take my hat off to you Nick. My son was over the moon with his trip (on his 21st Birthday). Many thanks again!!
