Up Up and away! - Feb 20, 2020

Certainly worth doing on a fine summer day. Started off very early we were driven to the take off site in a comfortable van. Helped set up the balloon, which added to the experience. The views were
breathtaking and the photos taken will last as a long term memory.

A great experience indeed, friendly staff, not only explaining every step beforehand but also with lots of courtesy towards us travelers. Very well organized and everything was just perfect. Weather was great too.

Will definitely recommend this tour. Worth every cent

Hi Team...I just wanted to say i had a blast on my first balloon flight over the yarra valley. It was very professionally handled (even if I did have to get up at 4.30am haha) and the staff were very friendly and answered any queries etc...

I would highly recommend global ballooning!

Hot air balloon across Yarra Valley - Feb 11, 2020

This was a wonderful experience and the logistics were quite easy. The crew is energetic, kind and helpful in every way.

Our pilot expertly steered our across the valley and provided great anecdotes as well. It was my first time doing a hot air balloon ride and I could not pick a more perfect location. It was peaceful and beautiful. The post-breakfast was delicious, and in the end, we had a full day ahead of us!

Absolutely Spectacular day - Feb 11, 2020

What can I say but WOW!!

From start to finish they were so professional and communication was A1. The balloon ride over the Yarra Valley was over & above our expectations. Such a magical experience. Then onto the winery tour with Shane as our guide was fantastic. He knew so much about wines & the history of the Yarra Valley. Highly recommend doing both

Hot air ballooning in the Yarra Valley, highly recommended - Feb 4, 2020

A perfect experience. Great weather helped certainly, as it must for the kind of experience ballooning is but the organisation, staff, equipment and pilot were first class.
Our pilot Ronald was friendly and personable and clearly highly skilled, who took the time when asked to explain some of the airborne operation, playing with winds and altitudes and for that matter, answered all questions patiently and knowledgeably.
Finished off with a decent breakfast at Balgownie. A wonderful and memorable experience.

Blast of a Day! - Feb 4, 2020

Great great fantastic day, from 4am when Bambi the story telling fun bus driver & his organisational cohort picked us up from our meeting point to the cool calm collected Ballon pilot taking us on a magical flight over the Yarra Valley and the fantastic champagne breakfast to finish.
Then onto the winery tour and once again a fantastic fun bus driver called Tony telling us plenty of facts along with a few exaggerated tales to mix with a few wines from a few winery’s. Magic day

BLISS - Jan 14, 2020

We had a very joyful moment. Bambi was our tour guide and he gave us a very informative information about Aussie and a glimpse of the hot air balloon. Kudos to the ground crew for their professional service and equipment. We feel save riding the hotair balloon, the flight was blissful and the landing was so smooth.
After the balloon ride, we continue with wine tour to 4 selected wineries in Yarra Valley. We had a great time, the breakfast and lunch were perfect and tasty. The selected wineries also provided informative info and great selection of wine to ve tasted. Overall, i would recommend this.

Yarra Valley Sunrise hot air balloon - Jan 14, 2020

Sanshiro was our pilot and he was amazing. We felt super safe and it was the most relaxing flight ever. It is quite early and a bit tough to get up before sunrise but it was well worth it. Everything was well organized and on time. It’s fascinating to see how it all comes together before you take flight. It was so fun packing up the balloon and riding behind the truck on a tractor back to the winery. The buffet for breakfast was delicious and well worth the money.

What a wonderful way to celebrate our wedding anniversary! - Jan 14, 2020

My husband and I had an amazing experience with Global Ballooning with a flight over the Yarra Valley on Jan 8th. Our wonderful pilot, Eddie, took us through the clouds to see the sun and we had a majestic flight followed by a scrumptious champagne breakfast at Balgownie Estate winery. I would highly recommend Global Ballooning and Eddie to anyone who has considered ballooning.

WOW, what a morning!

We were completely looked after the entire process as Global Ballooning took care of absolutely everything. Our pilot Eddie was hilarious, while also making us feel safe. We also can’t thank Tash and the entire crew enough.
The views were insane and floating above the clouds was simply breath taking.
Thank you!
