Wow….loved the experience. We were up for a good long time and I was not even slightly nervous. Breathtaking and another check off my bucket list.

We had a fantastic time on our balloon flight. Grega was an exceptional pilot and made us feel totally at ease flying high and skimming over tree tops. The silence (when the balloon is not having a burst of hot air) is awesome. We highly recommend this to everyone. The only disappointment was we missed the sunrise but this was due to people not being on time. Make sure you are ready for pickup so everyone can enjoy the splendour of the sun rising.

The balloon trip was amazing and the breakfast afterwards was extremely good. The wine tour was great too. We went to a range of different wineries and there was wine to buy for various budgets. The transfers were extremely convenient and went smoothly. We had a great day.

we were extremely disappointed that we could not go on the balloon tour - the weather did not cooperate. however, the part of the tour that we experienced was fabulous! the guide was top-notch. lunch was served in a fantastic location, and the tour of the Chandon, which was our last stop, was just terrific. i recommed this to all who visit the area.

We were very disappointed that our hot air balloon flight was canceled at the last minute. The associated wine tour was good and made up for some of it.

We enjoyed the trip to the wineries, the guide was a lot of fun. Only setback: the balloon flight was cancelled due to weather.

The balloon ride was very well piloted, gave us great views of the Yarra Valley and wineries and played out very well. The pick-up arrangements were not certain until the evening just before the balloon ride. Clearly the organisers, and the recorded message on the contact phone number, expected us to be either a resident of the Melbourne area or staying in a CBD hotel. We were staying somewhere else and it was only when the driver of the pick-up van called us on his mobile the evening before the ride, that I was at all confident that we would connect with the balloon in the early hours of the following morning. The organisers should also specify a clock time on their information, instead of specifying the pick-up time by an interval before sunrise.

The staff were FANTASTIC and the balloon ride was wonderful, as was our wine tour leader. That said, we visited the same winery twice once for breakfast with a tasting then and then AGAIN for lunch with another tasting at the same place. As we had paid for a full 4 stop wine tasting, going back to the place we had already eaten and tasted was a bit of a bummer. Also, the tours did not know, initially, that we were on both trips... we had to press people to connect us between the tours and even then one of the balloon operators had to drive us in his personal car to the wine tour starting place. A great day but another vineyard and lunch spot rather than doubling up would have been much better. Finally, I'd like to reiterate that the staff were fantastic. Kudos to them.

Ballooning was great, afterwards a gap of two hours without anything to happen. The vinery tour was at least okay but not more, the guide Nick was a horrible person. Bei aware you book two seperate tours and nobody takes care for you in the meanwhile. That's not premium.
