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.
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 and #39;ll remember forever! Great way to view beautiful Melbourne!
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
AWESOME....AMAZING.....had great fun...enjoyed the flight very much including unpacking and packing of balloon.
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!
This was the most fantastic trip EVER!! Absolutely amazing. All very professional and safety was of upmost importance I would highly recommend this trip
This was a gift for my mum's 70th birthday and the team at Global Ballooning were awesome and looked after her so well. Thank you for making it a very special memory for her.
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.
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!!!
Breathtaking views over Melbs.. Awesome present for a Love one:) highly recommended!
Amazing - very weather dependant but we were lucky!! Nicolas - Excellent pilot!!
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!!
Just magnificant! Great crew and the champagne breakfast after the flight was a good way to end our journey .
Just awesome and we thoroughly recommend. Everything was perfect!
An unbelievable experience, best way ever to see a city, thanks so much!
An amazing trip with beautiful clear sunrise for our 26th wedding anniversary. I don't like heights and wasn't sure how I would go but was totally at ease and felt completely safe. The views were amazing. Well worth the money and will be doing it again! Thanks

The balloon flight was a once in a lifetime experience. My husband and I were picked up at our hotel so we had no need to arrange for transportation to the check-in point. Check-in was quick. Staff were professional. The flight was awesome. Breakfast after the flight was tasty.
