We had an amazing trip and enjoyed the full experience. From Rain and Theo’s pick up to Eddies
piloting through the breakfast each aspect was fun. The views were simply unforgettable. Rains level
of energy cannot be rivalled by any other person I have met in the world.
I took a friend on the best Christmas Eve adventure...high over the Yarra Valley in the serenity of a perfect sunrise. The ballooning team made this experience unforgettable and a wonderful way to see this iconic wine region.
Fantastic experience, clearly they are well trained and know what they are doing and something everyone should do at least once in their life. Friendly and supportive staff and breathtaking views
It was a early morning start at stupid o clock but was worth every second the time in the air was magical and I want to go back this was a success all round and the guys were so super professional do this even if it’s just once in your lifetime
What a magical morning in Melbourne. Kiff and Mark were an awesome duo and I felt so calm in their very capable hands. As someone who's typically a little afraid of heights, I was so surprised by how serene and beautiful the whole experience is. I wasn't afraid at all! From start to finish, the morning was such a unique and special way to see Melbourne and especially fantastic to find out that Melbourne is one of the only cities that you can balloon over!! I wanna do it all again tomorrow morning!!!!
This was a 70th birthday gift for my husband from our daughter and son-in-law. We floated up through the clouds to experience the early morning sunrise. It was truly magical and the light was extraordinary. Global Balooning is extremely professionally run and our pilot, Eddie, imparted so much information along the way. It was our first balloon experience but I don't think it will be our last.
If you have not done a ballon flight then you must do it. Awesome experience, it is peaceful and tranquil as you float above the valley and we had the bonus of braking through the clouds.
A very professional organisation that inform you of the planning that goes into the day and you get to help out with the unpack/packing of the envelope.
So happy I did this and will be telling family and friends that they have to do this.
I was 'blown away' by how peaceful the balloon ride was. This was the first time i experienced a flight so I didn't know what to expect, but I was very impressed by the flight. The staff were all experienced, knowledgable and friendly and would definitely recommend to anyone considering to take the plunge and do it! Beautiful scenery over the Yarra Valley. 10/10
An awesome experience that I won't forget in a hurry. Staff were helpful and informative. We drove to the rendezvous point and had no trouble finding the place. Helping to set up and then pack up at the end added to the fun. It was hard to know which way to look and which photo's to take. The hardest part was getting up at 4am and making sure you were there at the appropriate time. I was also a bit concerned that the weather would bring about a cancellation of the flight - I needn't have worried - the weather was perfect.
What an incredible experience!!! Honestly one of the most memorable moments I've ever had. Nothing can compare to the serenity of floating above the city as the sun rises. I don't know anywhere else in the world where you can fly in a hot air balloon above a major metropolitan city. Made me fall in love with Melbourne all over again.
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!
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!
