Everything was well organised from pickup to drop off at the hotel. Ride was fantastic and smooth! Champagne breakfast was good. Only adverse comment was some people talk too much on the ride, robbing others of experiencing peace and quiet up there!
Balloon ride was excellent - great experience. Only negative was I did think the company could use a few extra staff to do the pack up rather then getting the customers to do so.
I couldn't believe how smooth the ride was. Great views.
It would have been absolutely fantastic but, unfortunately, it was a smoky day and the smoke prevented us from going as high as we could have - our view would have been a lot clearer, otherwise. Apart from that, it really was brilliant!
Great experience but bit overpriced as the flight time is actually less than 60 min. Lot of physical work to do in packing up the balloon and that should not be part of it. Photos taken during the flight are not great and were charged AUD 40 per pen drive that was bit an overkill. My suggestion would be better to do the ballooning over the city instead Yarra valley....................Team and crew was professional

The flight was amazing. Disappointing however that they allow you to book a particular day take your money and then ring you the day before and tell you the fight is going to be cancelled because they haven't got enough bookings. This can put your whole holiday into disarray if you are planning to do other things on the only day they are offering to fly. A WARNING when you make your booking that the day you choose may not be suitable for for them financially would be nice, I would book with one of the other companies next time.
I will definitely not recommend this as the ballon does not fly high and only one miserable ballon is flying. After that, we still have to help to keep the ballon into the bag. The landing is terribly bad. We paid so much for this but it was not enjoyable at all. Not worth taking. The attitude of the crews are also not presentable.
