Thanks you for your 5* review. Those early mornings can be challenging particularly in winter but it is always worth it when you get to soar the sky in one of our fabulous hot air balloons. So glad you got to enjoy this beautiful experience. I also agree that our staff are great :) kind regards, Danielle and the GBA team

The professionalism of Global Ballooning is unparalleled. We felt comfortable and safe with our pilot Sam; as did our 12 year old son. The experience was amazing; and the sunrise magnificent. The experience was rounded off by a tasty breakfast at Balgownie Estate and the handing out of "Certificates of Courage"

Loved it! So peaceful in the air. Wonderful to see the place we call home from a birds eye view. Was a birthday present for my 16yr old. Impossible to not enjoy it.
