Had my first balloon ride with Global this morning. Weather was perfect, team professional and beautiful scenery in the Yarra Valley topped it off. I would highly recommend Global.The driver Tony was sweet and made light hearted conversation throughout the ride to take off spot.
You are expected to help as much or as little as you'd like with the inflation and deflation of the balloon. Ours was for 20 people, so pretty big. The flight was eerily serene and quite amazing, looking down from 3500 feet.....to the earth below was beautiful. Actually, quite difficult to describe.
Our pilot was very experienced. It felt very safe.
The breakfast back at the winery was okay but nothing special. Coffee from a Nespresso machine disappointing. Breakfast choices were good but not great. It didn't feel as special as it should've done.More
