Canberra is a beautiful city and seeing it from the air highlights its elegant layout in a way that does not apply to many other cities. The flight was very well run and organised and the morning went very smoothly indeed. A tip: when you are getting into the basket look for where the camera is hanging down out on... More

Couldn't have been more perfect. Launched at Questecon, drifted down the lake with the city laid out beneath us, landed behind the Arboretum. Kim was an informative, engaging and clearly very good pilot, the other support people topped things off. Actually, the champagne afterwards did that! Top notch and highly recommended.

Fabulous early Sunday Morning with near perfect weather. The eager flyers gather at a well known and respected hotel for registration and a short briefing. All very short and informal but necessary for safe flight. Transport then to the chosen site for take off/launch. Age is not a barrier as the crew of two ground handlers and the Pilot make... More

I gave my daughter the balloon flight for her 21st Birthday. We couldn't have asked for the most perfect day to go along with this amazing experience. Thank you to Kim and Crew who made our day the most memorable of all experiences. I can't say enough what a wonderful time we had.
