This flight was everything that it was advertised to be. The flying area is beautiful and so was sunrise that morning. We took the one hour flight and it is worth it!!! Even though you may not fly far, the flight changes as you go along. It was in the second half hour that we saw all the kangaroos on the ground. Our pilot was excellent!!! This is just plain fun!!!
We LOVED IT!!!!! The staff was excellant!!! They tried to get us up before the sunrise but they felt it was too windy, so we watched the other ones leave. Thats ok. I would rather stay up then come down early. We got up after the sunrise. It was still pretty. I recommend this immensely!!! And this company!!!! Its a great adventure!!!!
Excellent! Even though it was cloudy, being above the clouds was an amazing experience with the sunrise. They also were kind to drop us off at the airport after our ride.
Balloon ride kept going on and on as they couldn't find safe place to land. I was about to miss my flight but the team ensured I am at airport at earliest. Cheers to great effort from them ..
Must do if you are in Cairns
Waking up very early to catch the sunrise was worth it. Staff was very professional and ensured the safety of all the passengers.
The best experience ever! I would highly recommend it to everyone.
I booked this as a suprise for my fiancee and was a bit worried about waking him at 4am for the pre-sunrise pick up. We both agreed though that it was a fantastic experience and more than worth it. The whole experience is well organised and the staff are friendly and helpful, which adds to the overall trip. Watching the sun come up whilst 'floating' in the sky is amazing, we were even lucky enough so see wild kangaroos jumping about down below. We woud recommend this trip to everyone!
This was fantastic. Well worth doing to see an aerial perspective of the Australian bush. Fab.
Beautiful morning, fabulous trip, well organised. Felt safe throughout. Saw kangaroos and dingos from the basket.
Amazing tour. Really great team, very efficient pick-up by Alex and the balloon trip itself was incredible, with Shane the pilot giving interesting commentary and pointing out loads of kangaroos and other wildlife. Helping to pack the balloon away afterwards was also great fun. Can't recommend it enough.
It was a great experience, definitely recommend doing it! They pick you up early in the morning (too early?) and take you to the site of the hot air balloon. It's on a farm, so beware of manure. We got to watch them blow up the balloon too. I'm very much afraid of heights, but didn't even notice we were up so high. The only thing I was afraid of was dropping my phone while taking as many photos as I could. There isn't much room to move around in the balloon as they tend to pack it with as many people as possible. We got to see several wild kangaroos. Beware that the flames are HOT and sometimes the pilot has to keep the burner on for a while, so I recommend bringing something to cover your neck or head from the heat of the flames. The 30 minutes goes by fast. Once we were back on the ground, they had us help deflate and pack up the balloon, which was fun. Just be careful where you step, since, as I said before, it's on a farm. With that said, wear appropriate shoes too.
It was the most beautiful feeling floating along...serene ..spectacular...you must do it!!! This was mine and my daughter's "Welcome to Cairns " treat...the start of a stunning week in Cairns!!....The tour operator's were the best ...sooo fun and professional!....Tony was the best!!...thankyou so much !!!
Great time, beatifull pictures, is very early a cup of coffee for the travelers could be a good idea
Fantastic experience - very exhilarating. Staff were very friendly. Early start though.
Was collected from our accommodation on time. Transport was well organized and efficient. Information from drivers (Alex and Sean) was useful and clear. We were on the second flight of the day, but still got to see the balloon being inflated. Lots of photo opportunities there and again on our way to our take off point. Transfer from first flight group to second flight group was well planned and executed. Flight itself was wonderful. Jay was our pilot. He was friendly and informative. Landing was very smooth. Pepe was one of the ground crew. All staff were professional and inclusive of the group. Thank you for a wonderful experience. Would fly with this company again.
First time to ever go and would definitely do it again! Staff was great and well organized. Beautiful views of the area and the sunrise.

Wonderful! Just make sure you are ready to be picked up at 4AM the day of the trip!
Amazing hot air balloon ride! The sunset was gorgeous and peaceful as we drifted through the valley. There was a fantastic view of the landscape around Cairns and we spotted some kangaroos below. Really enjoyable and worth the early wake up time!
Great flight, very caring and knowledgeable staff with good sense of humor
