I always wanted to try hot air balloon but was hesitant. I am glad that I finally did it in Cairns with Hot Air Ballooning. From booking to the experience they were professional. I particularly like how they use SMS message to confirm the trip...More
What an amazing experience this was! Although the idea of being up in the air with no engine was a scary thought, the professional manner and cheerful confidence of all of the staff involved soon set my mind at rest, and the incredibly quiet and...More
