We had our first balloon flight over Mansfield and our pilot Georgia was so calm and professional. It was a truly magical experience and we can't thank Georgia and her crew enough.
Highly highly recommend ????????????

I am fear of height and worried about flying in the sky. However, the hot balloon was actually very stable and peaceful in the sky. Brian and his team were so friendly and made the whole experience so calm and smooth. The sunrise and landscape views were great over the Yarra Valley, wonderful breakfast after the fly too!

I don't use social media so thought I would email instead to say how great this morning's flight was, but also the end to end experience. Really stood out as very professional and well organised, and feeling in safe hands very much makes the experience an enjoyable one.

We did originally make an enquiry with an alternative company and just didn't really like the way they responded which was not very friendly or helpful. Our experience with Global Ballooning on the other hand was great from start to finish.

The most spectacular experience we have had in a long time from a genuine and passionate company

This Experience was tuned into an unforgettable moment for me and my fiance. I organised a proposal package which included a private flight over the Yarra valley winery region and the team @ Global Ballooning did everything in their power to make this an amazing experience for us.

From the first call to their office who were very informative and attentive to all of my requests to the day coming up to our Private flight everything was handled professionally and promptly. They were even nice enough to go the florist and pick up some flowers for me the day before our big event. They made sure that my entire proposal went without a hitch and filmed the entire event as the balloon rose up revealing the "will you marry me" banner on the balloon. Some of the most genuine people we have met who are passionate about providing a very unique and memorising experience that we will cherish for the rest of our lives.

We took of from a beautiful field and the Professional pilot was skilled enough to land us on the front lawns of the Stunning Zonzo Estate Winery where we were given Champagne to celebrate! We could not of dreamt of a more perfect finale to the already unbelievable flight in the hot air balloon.

We will not hesitate to fly with Global Ballooning over some of their other destinations in the future as its well worth the money spent. Just treat yourselves as this is an experience you will never forget! We 100% recommend you do this at least once in your life!

Great memories of that wonderful day, a year ago, and thank you to everyone for helping us create them!

What a wonderful special morning. Global Ballooning Australia was extremely friendly as well as professional and our pilot Georgia made us all feel welcome and safe as we travelled gracefully over the Yarra Valley. We had the breakfast afterwards which was extremely scrumptious, especially the coffee ????. I would highly recommend travelling the skies with this company and are looking forward to doing another flight in either Mansfield or Melbourne City.

Just wanted to thank Kiff and the team for a fantastic experience floating over Melbourne on Wednesday helping my wife and I celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary Cant recommend highly enough.

Just a quick note to let you know we thoroughly enjoyed our balloon flight over Mansfield this morning. 

Georgia as exceptional with her attention to detail as our a pilot, equally assisted by Ned on the ground. 

We were able to experience fantastic views over Mansfield and then Mt Buller. 

Thanks again, it was well worth it.

Our experience with Theo, Paul and Scarlett was out of this world. The ride was for my grandma's 80th and we were able to use their special accessibility basket. From the moment we arrived we could not fault the enthusiasm and professionalism of the staff to make our day truly memorable. From helping to unpack and inflating the balloon, the ride and packing the balloon up at the end the crew put great emphasis on safety but made the experience interactive and fun for all passengers. The transport bus to and from the pick up point was very comfortable and the breakfast at the end was delicious. For someone who hates heights I found the experience very pleasant. Thanks Emily

Rosie Mackay - Jun 2, 2021

We had an incredible morning gently floating above the Yarra Valley with Georgia our pilot who was friendly, professional, and excellent company. Although we were nervous about heights beforehand, this turned out to be not an issue at all. A beautiful sunrise, easy set up and pack up thanks to Scarlett on ground crew. We were celebrating a milestone birthday and the staff went out of their way to help make this experience magical. Hiring a balloon just for the two of us was definitely the way to go and worth every penny! Highly recommended!

Mark Cherry - Jun 2, 2021

My partner and I had an awesome experience on our first balloon ride. Our pilot Ron was great! He was knowledgeable and funny and that really added to the overall experience. I loved helping with the inflation and dismantle of the balloon, it made the experience all the more special. I would highly recommend trying these guys out, ask for Ronald to be your pilot you won't regret it!

Stephanie O'Halloran - Jun 2, 2021

My husband booked this for me as a gift. We had the most perfect morning ballooning. The weather was still and we enjoyed a lovely sunrise. Ronald and the team were fantastic, they were very informative about the experience and we got to get involved in preparing the ballooning which was fun. Ronald is very experienced and the flight was so smooth including the landing. I’m normally afraid of heights but I was fine.
Highly recommend the experience!

Rhiannon Malone - Jun 2, 2021

Absolutely wonderful experience. The team at global ballooning are professional, friendly and responsive. Each member of the team made the morning so much fun with their enthusiasm. They took lots of photos for everyone, air-dropping them to us all after the flight. I would definitely recommend Global Ballooning and fly with them again.

Anita Ekberg - Jun 2, 2021

The most amazing morning ever. Hot Air Ballooning with the masters, Global Ballooning was enjoyable from the moment we met...early in the morning. Our pilot Kif was friendly, professional and a wealth of information. Taking part in setting up the balloon was so easy and manageable, so too the pack up, and it made us feel as if we were more than just passengers. This was such an incredible experience, flying over the city, following roads we know so well but had never seen so clearly or so gently. Don't wait, take a friend, your family, your loves or yourself and get on a flight with Global Ballooning

Absolutely Brilliant

I thought it would be great. I didn’t realise it would incredible. To peacefully fly over the city in the hands of Steve, our pilot, was amazing. When I say peaceful, the roar of the burners is frequent. The breakfast is great to finish off a great early dawn.

The photos and videos they did were amazing.

Seeing what the others did, I think we chose well with Global Ballooning.
