The experience was all that I had hoped for, and is to be highly recommended. The only suggestion I could make would be to consider the ease of getting in and out of the basket. It is ok for the very young and nimble to climb the foot holes, but it is a bit risky for the middle aged and over. And there are a lot of us these days.

Hi Jodath3,

Thank you very much for your positive comments & the experience was all that you had hoped for.

I appreciate your comments regarding the ease of getting in & out of the balloon basket, we offer our assistance to all customers & the design of the balloon basket is by the Balloon manufacturer who has to meet CASA requirements. A little patience & we all get in & out safely.

All the best
regards
Graeme

Used a red balloon voucher and glad we got this wonderful opportunity. The day before our flight there was the incident in the Hunter Valley. Well meaning friends were sending messages but we thought won’t happen again. Graeme is a master and even if you start off nervous you are feeling completely safe and then thrilled by the manificent unfolding landscape from Ipswich city to cows and paddocks. Thanks so much and we had lovely company in the basket and breakie later.

A little crowded, but that is to be expected since we had to postpone due to all the bad weather; we were just grateful to be able to get up there....so much fun.
