1. The Hot Air Ballooning experience is a must-do - Even for those with fear of heights! The Global Ballooning team does a great job of making you comfortable and making the entire flight experience hassle free and enjoyable. The breakfast at Balgownie that follows is also great!

2. The winery tour covers 4 wineries through the day and is a great tour for amateurs in this drink. We had John as a tour guide and he was ver knowledgeable, helpful, witty and engaging.
Would definitely recommend both the tours.

This is a great way to see the wine country. Disappointed that balloon flight was cancelled due to weather windy. But we were quickly refunded for that portion of the tour. Tony was a great guide. Very knowledgeable regarding the wine industry and history.

We were up before the crack of dawn. Fortunately for us it didn't rain. The view from Yarra was stunning. I highly recommend the winery tour that comes with the package. You'll have a swell time.

The wine tour was great, but it's a bit of a risk to couple it with the wine tour especially during winter because it can get canceled.

Although we weren't able to do the winery tour and balloon flight on the same day due to weather conditions both events were spectacular and we enjoyed them immensely. The views on the balloon flight were amazing and the crew exceptional. The hosts on the winery tour were knowledgeable and accommodating.

This was a mixed bag for me. The first part is the Yarra Valley Balloon Flight and that was very cool. You're involved in the set-up of the balloon and that was a lot of fun plus the view is breathtaking once you're up there. The landing was smooth except that we landed in a field full of cows which led to watching your step if you know what I mean. The huge downside of this tour was that it ended at 8AM and we were dropped off at our other location for the winery tour which started at 11AM. Yes. That meant 3 hours of waiting in a place where everything was closed except for a hotel café which would've been great for breakfast if we hadn't already had breakfast at 7AM with the Balloon Flight crew. Oh, and no Wi-Fi. The winery tour was very good with two out of the four spots being excellent and two being average. Would I recommend this particular tour? No. I would recommend doing each separately or at least getting a guarantee that you won't be getting stuck somewhere for three hours with nothing to do.
