Highly recommend this experience. Both Steve and Mark were experienced, knowledgeable, funny and informative. Being able to fly over the city is a unique experience you won't get anywhere else, due to air space rules. Expensive but well worth saving up. And for your friends who tell you it is dangerous, tell them unless they have done it, they can't comment! We plan to save up and do the Yarra Valley one next time, as we loved the whole experience so much!
It was unforgettable experience with the two greatest pilots - Pato and Lilli who helped me to unfold the romantic proposal without hiccups! The balloon was fantastic both visually and the smooth ride we had was fantastic. Both had a really good knowledge and skill manuevering and gliding over the yarra valley. I cant emphasize how impressive it was. Thank you team ????????
Also please thank the bus driver - he was really friendly and dropped us off timely. You have a such a fantastic team.
I’d like to express my gratitude to Global Ballooning for such a pleasant and stress free experience.
I was doing this adventure on my own, as it was a gift from my fiancé, and found the communication and easy-to-read instructions via email, a great help.
The pilot- Steve Buckley - was very knowledgeable and gave simple and precise instructions for a very pleasant ride. He was great!
I would like to say a big THANK YOU to everyone at Global Ballooning.
My sister and husband flew with you yesterday for my sister’s 50th birthday.
Everyone from the staff at the office to the Ground Crew (Nick and Theo) and Sanchez? the Pilot were lovely and very helpful.
I would like to extend my THANK YOU for allowing my mum to be able to go out and watch the balloon set up and my sister take off.
This balloon flight was incredibly well organised. Communication at all times was clear and prompt. Georgia and Bronni who looked after us put everyone at ease but were professional as they encouraged us to participate in the whole experience and calmed any possible apprehension. The flight itself was a much more awe inspiring experience than I’d expected. As a person who has some minor fear of heights I felt comfortable at all times from the launch to the landing. We flew over the Mansfield region so had magnificent views of the alpine mountains, Lake Eildon and looked down on pastural properties full of sheep and fabulously curious black cows and trees full of white cockatoos. Drifting with the wind and the quiet in between the whooshing of the gas and flames was as close to being a bird as I can imagine. Thank you everyone at Global Ballooning. Worth every cent.
Thank you so much for a very organised and wonderful flight!
This has been a highlight activity provided to veterans. Our pilot was so skilled and we all felt so reassured with his professionalism as some were having doubts with heights etc but he made it the most smoothest, tranquil flight we experienced even with take-off and landing.
We appreciate all your flexibility over the COVID months and making this activity so memorable.
I hope you had a nice weekend. I know that I certainly did and now I can even write this with my new fiance, Amelia and not have to be hiding anything.
We will be doing some very glowing reviews for Global Ballooning Australia online, but I wanted to also send an email to you to thank everyone there. We have obviously told the engagement story many times already and every single time, it is impossible not to mention the crucial role that everyone there played. From yourself, and everyone in the office who has helped over the past five months, to our amazing pilot, Scarlett, to the ground staff, Dale and Nick and every single person there who helped us celebrate and took the time to come and congratulate us. The true success is in the very happy couple that you have helped and the fact that Amelia was 100% completely surprised. I am simply blown away by how it all happened and thank you for all of your help. Whilst your help with organising the engagement was more than enough, the support I had on the morning was beyond any expectations. Scarlett made me feel so calm and was the most amazing actress too. She filled me with such confidence and was also the perfect person to have with us on the flight to celebrate our moment. In addition to that, though, I feel so lucky and thankful for Nick being there and capturing it all on camera. To have this to watch over and over again is something we will cherish and went beyond what was required from you. This shows the care and compassion that your organisation has for people. So thank you.
I have found yourself and everyone there so great to deal with and I honestly cannot thank you enough for making this possible. It is a moment that we will look back on for the rest of our lives and would not have been possible without everyone there. We will forever be grateful and know that we will be flying again in the future with you.
If we can ever do anything to help or support you, please always let me know.
Shaun and Amelia
I just wanted to say a huge thank you for such a wonderful day experience today. Our pilot Ronald was a wealth of knowledge and made the flight so memorable. All the ground crew were friendly, funny and so professional. It really was worth the 2 year wait due to covid to do this! Please pass on our gratitude. I will def recommend you to friends!
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.
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.
