Amazing sunrise balloon flight over Canberra - so peaceful and serene !! Loved the hands on experience of setting the balloon up for launch and packing it away ! The most brilliant way to share my Dads 75th birthday !!! Thanks for the celebratory champagne !

I had a balloon flight over Canberra in March with my sister. It was a novel experience travelling over gorgeous Canberra during the balloons aloft festival. If you're curious I recommend it. It wasn't anywhere near as scary as I thought it would be and I'm a little scared of heights nowadays. We went on the Qatar Airways balloon. They don't give you a choice of balloon - this is allocated on the morning of the flight. What they don't tell you is that some balloons have at least 18 people jammed into them. There is almost no wriggle room. If you're unlucky enough to get in first, you will stand under the hot noisy gas jets which is unpleasant and a bit intimidating. On our balloon the camera taking shots of the group was on the other side, so we had no images taken of us in the compartment furthest from the camera. They told us photos were taken every 5 seconds - yes but they only provided 6 and these were pretty horrible shots of a very crowded balloon. Our pilot also flew very high for most of the flight so we didn't get close to the lake. Finally, the photos always show the balloons over Parliament House and the foreshore but most of the balloons take off from areas well away from Questacon. We had to get a bus to Campbell Primary School. Loved flying slowly overCanberra, its magnificent. But for the cost of the balloon flight, please don't pack us in like sardines.

This was my first balloon flying, and I'm really glad I did it with the experienced and knowledgeable crew from Balloon Aloft. I highly recommend their service for your first or return balloon flying experience in Canberra.

This was an amazing experience! It was a spontaneous decision to book a flight as I’m a bit anxious about heights. I asked my adult daughter to come with me and we both had a great time. Harry was our pilot and did a great job although I got worried when we went low over the water. The views over Canberra were fantastic and I thoroughly enjoyed the whole trip from making the initial booking tight through to the end as we collected the balloon up for the trip back.
