The sunrise melbourne ballooning ride was absolutely amazing. It was a nice and relaxing balloon ride and the view of the city and the sunrise was stunning. The pilot Kiff was really experienced and professional, the flight is so calm. The team were so kind and helpful. Highly recommend!

Fantastic flying experience!Amazing pilot with wonderful weather. The team were so kind and helpful and gave us an incredible experience. As Melbourne is the only one place where can provide hot balloon over the CBD area in the world, I extremely recommend you should take a short trip with it.

It was a once in life time adventure with captain Kiff this morning and his 2 boys, we were lucky to have nice weather with us for the prefect flight. Stunning view of Melbourne city and surrounding suburbs plus the amazing sun rise. Friendly crew and great service. Highly recommend to anyone who wants to fly balloon in Melbourne. Thank you Kiff!
