Why Travelers Choose This Tour

This tour offers a view of the Yarra Valley unrivaled by ground excursions.
Enjoy a spectacular start to the day with a sunrise hot air balloon flight over the Yarra Valley, just an hour away from Melbourne. This favorite day trip destination is a gourmet paradise of lush rolling hills and vineyards and home to more than 35 wineries that produce renowned cold-climate varietals like chardonnay and pinot noir.
Make your way to the Yarra Valley’s Balgownie Estate in the early morning, or enjoy pickup at your Melbourne CBD hotel (if sparkling wine breakfast upgrade is selected). Climb aboard a sturdy basket, which holds a maximum of 16 people. Experience the thrill as your hot air–powered balloon fires up in the crisp morning air and you begin to slowly rise over the countryside.
Float with the breeze over vineyards, country roads and orchards for an unbeatable view of the gorgeous landscape. On misty mornings, watch sunbeams play on layers of wispy clouds for an otherworldly experience. An expert guide will accompany you on the ride to ensure everyone’s safety and provide narration on the passing scenery.
After your 1-hour flight, upgrade to include a hearty sparkling wine breakfast at Balgownie Estate's elegant restaurant. Toast your flight with Domaine Chandon sparkling wine and choose from a gourmet a la carte menu featuring hot and cold breakfast favorites served with orange juice, tea and coffee.

Yarra Valley Balloon Flight
, Mar 2019
An experience of a lifetime - would denitely recommend to do it. Pilot was experienced and flight was smooth with amazing pictures taken along the way taken. Would have been 5 stars if not for the hiccup of pick up from hotel being late by almost 45mins

I was getting cold feet on the night of the flight since I was a little afraid of heights and to make matter worse, I was having a little fever and feeling a little dizzy, I called the customer service, they consoled me and told me it's a very smooth flight with nothing to worry about, when I reached the site, Brian was very thoughtful and showed me the basket with thick ropes onto which I can hold, the whole flight was very smooth and Brian kept asking me how I felt during the flight, I wasn't frightened at all, the landing was perfect, thank you, Global Balooning.

Today was our 30th wedding anniversary. I would like to highly commend Brian our pilot and all the staff that made our day very special. I would highly recommend The Balloon flight and breakfast to anyone who wants a great morning out. The scenery was amazing and Brian's skill flying the balloon was amazing. Brian also gave us some running commentary and also showed everyone how the balloon was operated while flying. Thankyou very much to all of you. This made our day very special.

Bucket list experience achieved!! I was picked up before sunrise alone in front of my hotel. I'm 74 years young and felt very safe during the entire tour. Van driver wife of owner, sorry forgot her name and all of the crew were friendly, helpful and knew what they were doing. As a senior citizen and in a foreign country, I was concerned when told that I Would be dropped off at a location NEAR my hotel. Fortunately My drop off was few blocks away and easily managed with instructions from driver. Bottom line. Great hot air ballon ride and champagne breakfast afterward.
