Amazing views and staff were great. Thoroughly recommend this!
My husband and I had an amazing time going up in a hot air balloon, the staff were great our pilot Jay was fantastic, we also had a good talk to him about when we lived in South Africa where he comes from. I had a fear of heights but I didn't even think about it while we were flying, it was so quiet and peaceful. Thank you to all for a wonderful experience.
A must do in Cairns - I loved those gorgeous views!!
Our bus driver was great at his job and kept us entertained. The flight was excellent, just not long enough! Once we were in the air I didn't want it to stop! I will go for longer next time!
This was lots of fun and worth the price. The breakfast they provided after was really good. And they even have you participate in helping put the balloon away after it's done.
What an amazing morning. I had a blast. It was worth getting up at 4 A.M. Everything ran smoothly. The views from the balloon of the mountains and the paddocks below were beautiful.
Would have been better if there was an option to book the first of two flights.
A fantastic and unforgettable experience. What a great way of seeing even a small piece of a beautiful country.
Hotel pick up at 430am. Super crazy early but definitely worth it. As the location is quite far away, when we have been there it just started to make the balloon up. As we are the first time to play, it's really a good experience to enjoy it.
We had a great time. The staff was wonderful. They know their stuff, made everyone feel comfortable and we all had fun too! We loved the balloon ride and would highly recommend it!
This experience is well worth the price of admission. Watch balloons being blown up in the early dawn and then gently and quietly float above the beautiful Atherton tablelands. Afterward, join the fun of deflating and storing the balloon before heading to a hearty champagne breakfast, all before 10AM!
The sunrise was wonderful, the champagne and breakfast after was wonderful and we got back to the hotel before 10AM which left plenty of time to have a full day of activity. Loved it!
Hot-air ballooning was awesome. It was one of the best things I've done. We arrived as the staff were blowing the balloons up, and that was really interesting. Then it was time to clamber on board. I felt a little nervous, but that quickly evaporated as we took off. Soon I was flying through the sky like a true adventurer. The silence of the early morning flight was only interrupted by blasts from the gas cylinder to keep us aloft. All too soon, we started to descend, and after a couple of hops we were safely on the ground. Is it something I want to do again? Definitely! Did it make a good holiday fantastic? Definitely! We even got champagne!
Incredible! Seeing kangaroos from a hot air balloon! How can you beat that? Well, how about a great breakfast after a morning flight? That's included. Watching the balloons fire up in the pre-dawn is outstanding. Next time I would do the 1 hour tour. If you have any reservations about hot air ballooning, put them aside and do this one.
