Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

By far the best experience I have ever had. Enjoyed every moment from start to finish. I was very apprehensive when I was first gifted this experience but now I am recommending to everyone. So good. We had Clement as our pilot and he was excellent. A really lovely guy who landed our basket smoothly plus it stayed upright :-)

I rode a ballon for the first time.
I was impressed to see the wonderful scenery.
I was afraid of the balloon shaking, but it didn’t shake at all. I had a pleasant air trip.

This was the best experience ever! We had so much on this trip! I was pretty nervous, but everything was so smooth and the flight felt like we were just floating and wasn't at all scary! The whole staff were very professional and answered all of the questions I had. Once in a lifetime experience and well worth it!

One of the best experiences and views I've had in Victoria! It was the perfect morning to fly in Yarra Valley and we were greeted with the most incredible sunrise. This was absolutely the best Valentines gift for my partner <3

We loved it, a unique experience. 360deg views of the valley, cloud layer and rising sun was magnificent.

Friendly, competent and helpful staff. Classy venue.

Everyone should do it at least once.

The pilot & crew was efficient and did a great job letting us what to expect every step of the way. As a result I felt very safe. The flight was very calm with gorgeous views of the valley.
