I truly enjoyed this trip. It is weather dependent, and I guess I was lucky. Everything from pickup to drop off at the hotel worked like a clock.
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.
Great view and funny.
Brain was very professional pilot and made us enjoy our flight peacefully.
Nick was a great driver, more friendly and funny.
Smooth ride. Initially was worried if the flight was cancel due to the weather.
Never miss this ! View of morning sunrise is beautiful ! Thumb up for Belinda n pilot Brian .
Absolutely amazing. Brian, our pilot was very experienced and made us enjoy our flight to the fullest.
great experience. prep was more spectacular than actual flight. loved it. Dariusz, our pilot was great.
Great morning to have balloon flight in Yarra Valley. Pilot Grega and Belinda is a very nice it's will be my lovely experience in Melbourne and will introduce the balloon flight to friends.
Best part of our trip. Winds were good and sunrise view was amazing.
Excellent facilities and breakfast in Wineyard :-
Absolutely incredible! Bought the tickets as a surprise for my partner on her 21st and as first time balloon fliers we thoroughly enjoyed the experience! We optioned to go with the transfers for ease of travel and the champagne breakfast and we could not have asked for a nicer all round experience.
Note to future travelers particular baldies like myself bring a beanie, not for the cold but for the heat from the burner! And also a pair of sturdy shoes would help as well as packing and setting up the balloon can be tricky but is half the fun!. Otherwise enjoy an incredible experience with an all-round very professional company who my partner and I will definitely be using again in the future.
Thank you so much for this breathtaken experience. Very well organized trip. I already recommended to my friends and collegues this trip and the compzny and gonna try a tour in Melburn city or somewhere else.
I would like to share the pictures which I made with my camera.
Great experience and the pilot did an excellent job. It was first time for my wife and she wasnt scared at all! The scene over Yarra Valley was just too beautiful!
This balloon ride was great. Victor is a super captain and gave us a wonderful one hour ride on that. I wish the camera attached to the balloon is of better quality. The pics taken are not very clear.
Once in a Life Time Experience. One of the biggest Hot Air Balloons in the Southern Hemisphere. So it was. Crew was very warm and provide good service. Involve passengers in a few activities which make it fun and interesting.
Awesome! It was fun, interactive, safe. Perfect way to enjoy my 30th and mums 50th. Pilot and staff were friendly and funny. Yum breaky. Very happy
It's amazing and breath taking experience over the spectacular view throughout the entire valley!!
It was a highly interactive activity with excitiing views from the balloon.The breakfast in the winery was also fantastic to charge after ballooning.
Many said this activity is scary and dangerous but I must say its a must to go! its safe and you feel like you are on top of the world. The view is truly amazing! The set up of the hot air balloon is also interesting. One time life experience!
This was a fantastic tour. Our flight was cancelled twice due to strong winds, but it was worth the wait in the end. The weather was perfect when we flew and the views were unbelievable. The crew were really good fun and the breakfast was top quality. It's worth mentioning that there is the opportunity to help set up the balloon and pack it back away at the end of the flight. Doesn't sound very exciting, but it was good fun too. Highly recommended.
Was great. Took 3 goes to get there due to weather but was well worth it
Our Pilot Kiff was great and made the experience amazing. I would highly recomment it to anyone
A unique experience with unparalleled views of the Yarra Valley and the sunrise.
