A huge thank you to Lui, Thomas and the team for such an amazing experience!
We took my mum ballooning while she was visiting and although she was a little nervous, once we were up in the sky any fears she'd had, had totally disappeared. The whole morning was absolute magic. Thomas is an incredibly skilled pilot and the team are super friendly and helpful. Thanks so much guys!

Overall this was an amazing experience with great operators. It was a little disappointing that due to the fact we had to wait for someone who was running over an hour late, we missed the sunrise, and it was billed as a 'sunrise flight'. On the flip side, we really appreciated that the guys did wait for the lady to get there as it was a special trip for her 50th birthday. However they could have set up the balloons while waiting for her instead of setting them up after she got there, which would have meant we would have caught the sunrise. All the staff are great, enthusiastic, knowledgeable and friendly. The breakfast after the flight is amazing. On a side note, not really concerned with the flight, but with getting to the location, I would hate to think what would happen if one of the troop carriers was involved in an accident as there are no seatbelts in the back. Perhaps a 4WD minibus could be a better option. This is an experience not to be missed if you have the opportunity.

Hi Christie,
Thanks for your review, and I'm glad you had such an amazing experience.
According to the chief pilot on the day, the delay with one of the passengers did not delay the launch, the balloons were half inflated when the passenger arrived. We launch at approx sunrise, sometimes a bit before, other times after.
All of our vehicles have seatbelts for all passengers, our apologies if we did not remind you to clickity clack in the back...
Thanks again for joining us and posting the review.
