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.

From unforgettable to unforgettable with care: A hot air balloon ride with Brian’s team

This hot air balloon ride wasn't just amazing, it surpassed all my expectations. Brian and his team created memories that will truly last a lifetime.

The amount of work that goes into setting up a hot air balloon is impressive, and keeping it under control during the flight is an even bigger feat. Brian and his team made it look effortless, which speaks volumes about their expertise.

A special shoutout to Jason as well. He went above and beyond by picking us up extra early in the morning and ensuring we got back to the city conveniently after everything was packed up.

Overall, this experience was exceptional. Highly recommend!

Wonderful experience. Silently floating over the city as you viewed landmarks from a different perspective was breathtaking.

We had the most amazing morning with Dom as our pilot and Peter as our driver.
Our flight took off from Caulfield racecourse and landed in Royal Park. This gave us spectacular sunrise views of all Melbourne's landmarks including Albert Park Lake (happy coincidence it was grand prix weekend), the MCG, the Yarra and the city from various perspectives.
Dom and the team were utter professionals and we loved every minute of the early morning adventure and the amazing breakfast after. Can highly recommend Picture This Ballooning.
