This is a must do trip and even if you are scared of heights you can still do this, the staff were brilliant. Didn't think much of the breakfast but I didn't book the trip for the breakfast.
This tour is awesome and worth the money. The experience is unforgettable. The pilot is very professional, you will be in good hands..Will recommend to friends and family..super fun experience
Highly recommend this tour!! What an amazing way to see the countryside of Australia!! Will for sure do it again!!
A wonderful experience. Safe and we met very friendly guiders. Definitely worth going!
I had always wanted to on a hot air balloon ride! It was on my bucket list and it definitely didn't disappoint. The views were incredible, the winery where we had breakfast was wonderful and our driver was the best. Couldn't have asked for a better your! Highly recommend.
The balloon flight with breakfast was a wonderful way to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary, thank you so much :)
Excellent, had some early fog but as clearing as we took off, beautiful scenery and good, knowledgable crew that took care of the passengers. Would do this again if I get back to Brisbane
Absolutely fabulous experience. I get scared of heights but have always wanted to do this. Not once did I feel unsafe or scared! Scenery was spectacular and plenty of opportunities to take photos. We went higher that the other balloons flying on the same day and also went further. Breakfast lovely
The experience was great, i am scared of heights but was in full capable hands,we also almost reached maximum height at 7000ft wow!. what a rush considering i get verdigo,great views of both coast and city,prob better doing it at the end of winter to get a full sunrise,but other than that great experience.thanks hot air!!!!!!!.
Love every single bit of it. Great pickup services and fantastic view of the Gold Coast hinterland. Would try again in the future.
Fantastic day out, was a bit nervous before but felt very safe throughout. Great experience would recommend to anyone. Breakfast was really nice also
We enjoyed every moment from the hotel pick up through to the drop off, and would highly recommned it to our friends.
It was such an amazing experience! I've always wanted to do a hot air balloon ride at the Gold Coast.. no regrets! It was a foggy morning but the views were spectacular. The only unfortunate bit was not getting to see the actual city skyline as it was too distant. But the landscape views and sunrise more than made up for it all. It was a stunning sight!
It was just amazing. To reach at a height of 4500ft and look at the ground it was great. Hope we can repeat this in feature.
We had the most amazing experience. We all want to go back and do it again, and again. The staff were friendly and fun and very professional. We felt safe throughout the whole experience.
Had a great time, definitely a MUST. Would recommend it to anyone. Would do it again and plan too the breakfast was also lovely and a great location.

The fun of getting up really early and watching the balloon inflate in the sunrise and slowly getting into shape was an exciting experience for me and my wife. More so when we lifted slowly into the air. The experience was exhilarating - a sense of peaceful awe, when the burner isn't blowing fire that is. Great ride; we had a bumpy topsy turvy landing due to the gust near the ground, but it was absolute fun! To cap it all, the breakfast at the vineyard with champagne was very nice too. It will be a mistake to miss this!

This was the best tour I did during my honeymoon holiday at the Gold Coast. It was my first time getting into a hot air balloon and the experience was excellent. The view from the middle of the sky is unbelievably amazing. The champagne breakfast was mouthwatering, but they did not cater for people who do not eat beef. I strongly recommend this tour to all travelers to the Gold Coast.
Take-off and landing was amazing. Breakfast was amazing at O'Rally vinyard. i liked organic white wine there. :
only thing was little weird for us was waking up at 3:30 AM and getting ready for pick-up at 4 AM .... rest everything was well planned and organized. Ballon ride was also very refreshing.
Good overall experience, friendly staff.
We did it from Gold Coast. After the initial hiccup of getting up at 3.30 to be picked up at 4am, it was a fairly smooth ride. Our pilot was Italian and highly experienced in hot air ballooning. The weather was perfect for the activity and we started on time (just after dawn). We spotted few groups of kangaroos from top which was great. The overall scenery from top was good with views of forest and open lands.
The breakfast was not upto mark and we were a bit disappointed with the quality of breakfast. However, it was in a beautiful vineyard which made up for the not-so-great breakfast. If you haven't done hot air ballooning before, give it a shot!!!
