What an amazing experience! Fantastic crew - friendly and genuinely enthusiastic about what they do. Our pilot Steve was excellent - great explanations about the flight and the sites. Yes it was a very early start to the day at 4:00, but the sunrise and smooth flight was well worth it.

I went on the balloon with my 7&9 year old kids and everyone enjoyed the experience. Beyond Balloon team were very professional and looked after us right from the start until the breakfast at the end. We were lucky to have a perfect morning weather with sunrise. Our pilot Eliee was great and showed us some good views from the top. I didnt expect I would play a role in setup and pack of the balloon - but enjoyed the team work. Would definitely recommend this ride to other families. Its worth the money and time.

We had Steve as our Balloon Pilot. The entire team was really professional, had a well planned and coordinated trip. We had lots of fun and the entire experience is safe. After the ride, we had Breakfast at the Crown Plaza and the Beyond Ballooning team was there talking to all guests and serving up breakfast which was really nice of them to do. I would definitely recommend this experience to anyone visiting Hinter Valley.

I surprised my partner with a hot air balloon ride for his birthday in October. From booking all the way to flying, the process was seem less with Beyond Ballooning. We had a group of 16 and had the mid-sized balloon. Although we had quite a cloudy day, the experience was still fabulous. Our pilot Nathan was an excellent guide and made us feel safe at all times! I was contemplating going with another hot air balloon flight provider in the Hunter Valley and by chance chose Beyond Ballooning. When we landed in the field and we’re packing up the balloon (which is a fun experience for all participants!) the other company were about to leave but their vehicle was bogged! At that point I was glad I chose BB!
