This was a once in a life time experience. I had a wonderful time and the pilots were very experienced and providing a wonderful time. We had a safe and fun flight and saw beautiful scenery. This is a MUST DO in Melbourne. You and your family would have a great time. It was interactive, exciting, safe and fun. Also, the breakfast at the end was very tasty and you have to get the photos. If you want an awe like experience, you should definitely do this excursion. Great Food...Great People.. Great Fun!!!

My partner booked us both a flight with Global ballooning for my birthday. From the great customer service we received over email right up and until the end of the flight the team didn’t disappoint. Tim who was our pilot was extremely experienced and made you feel safe and relaxed. He explained every detail with what he was doing so nothing seemed unexpected. Mark who assisted us with our setup and pack away was ever so passionate about his role and making sure that we all had a fun experience. Would highly recommend Global ballooning and have already got my friends to book on. See you again team!

6th of July is my daughter's birthday. We wanted to make her day special and hot air ballooning is a perfect choice. This is first flight experience for our family and we loved it. The views of Yarra Valley is stunning from above. Buffet breakfast at belgownie Estate was delicious. I would like to thank Global Ballooning Team for their professionalism and making our day memorable.

My daughter and I received a balloon flight each for our birthdays. It was exciting and interesting watching the preparations for the flight. It was a great feeling slowly rising up in the air. Steve was a friendly and obviously capable pilot. It was great trying to recognise landmarks from onhigh. It was thrilling landing ,though the basket tipped on its side!

Firstly, thank you Eddie for the wonderful flight time. Amazing skills and a wonderful host. All I’d say is schedule this experience with Global Ballooning and if possible request for Eddie cause you are in for a treat up in the skies.

A high flying adventure

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.

Up, up and away!

A must-do experience. Kiffy, Zhe and all the crew did an amazing job to create an unforgettable experience. Our flight from Williamstown to Bulleen gave us spectacular dawn views of the bay and Melbourne's CBD and parklands. I cannot recommend this company and the experience of hot air ballooning highly enough!

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.

A family experience to cherish

What an amazing way to spend time together as a family. The whole morning from the early start to the hot buffet breakfast at the end was exciting and so much fun. And then there's the view! But to experience it together as a family made it even more special. Thanks Brian and Team, you gave us the best experience and family adventure!

So peaceful and calm

We had the experience of a lifetime this morning with Brian our pilot. The air was still and the balmy morning was a beautiful time to be up and blowing up our balloon. We drifted silently from Kingsbury over the suburbs to Moorabbin. It felt so much safer than I had imagined and the landing was so smooth our basket did not tip over either. Thank you Brian and to Barry our ground crew.

Beautiful amazing & organised!

We had a lovely time flying with global ballooning.
All staff are incredibly helpful. Walking into the building, you could feel that all staff were happy to be there. 
The flight itself was beautiful. This is the third flight I've been on and it is my favorite.
One more thing that really impressed me...
2 days before our flight, I received an email advising us that our flight might be cancelled due to weather and suggestions for better weather options. Thanks to this advice our weekend away was saved!
