Absolutely perfect from start to end. I'm terrified of heights but the flight was so smooth and relaxed, loved Bob's jokes! The bonus of a glass a bubbly, a certificate and emailing your photos for free was awesome!

Great morning out and about for our first time in a Hot Air Balloon. Absolutely loved it, amazing sunrise experience. VIP experience was worth the extra $$$ for the private vehicle from Cairns to Mareeba, returning via Palm Cove for a yummy breakfast at NuNu Cafe on the beach. Thank you #hotairballooncairns, excellent start to the day.

Absolutely recommend! An amazing experience with such a professional and entertaining team! So great to enjoy a glass of bubbles after and have the team spend time answering our questions. Worth the early rise!

Our first hot air balloon flight and we were not disappointed. Our guide Hitoshi picked us up on time from our accommodation for our transfer to Mareeba where we met the rest of the Hot Air Balloon Cairns team, Balloon Pilot Bob and Ground Crew Ryan. Hitoshi took the time to go over the morning’s itinerary, before we got to the launch site as the rest of the team prepared the balloon for flight. After a safety briefing from Bob, we were soon away and floating gently across Mareeba Valley. Bob shared his local knowledge of the area and pointed out different features as we passed overhead all while skillfully changing altitude to take advantage of the wind layers to glide us across the valley. At the end of the flight we touched down in a farmers paddock, much to the surprise of the local cattle, with Bob managing to keep the basket upright after sliding along to a halt. After landing we pitched in to help pack up the balloon (this is optional and you don’t have to participate), before enjoying a sparkling wine toast. The early morning wake up call is well worth it, you will not be disappointed.
