On the 5th Nov 2017 we had a flight in the Yarra Valley with Ronald . I just wanted to say that he was excellent: friendly, informative, clearly an expert pilot, and the smoothest landing you could hope for ! Wonderful experience ! I will recommend you highly. Eddie his ground crew was also very friendly and helpful. Thank you both for a wonderful day.

I took the balloon ride on the above mentioned date. It was a wonderful experience.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank the entire crew Bambi, Belinda and Ronald for making it memorable for me.

Just a quick, but huge, thank you to all of the team at Global Ballooning for a fantastic day today.

Everything (despite the early start) was fantastic today. It all started with Bambi’s enthusiasm and entertaining/informative stories about Melbourne’s history and development as we drove from the hotel to the launch site and then the wonderful flight experience with Ronald flying us across the stunning Yarra countryside. Making anything that difficult look easy takes a huge amount of skill and experience. 

The flight was made even more enjoyable by Ronald’s commentary and instructions on how to fly the balloon, absolutely fascinating.

My Wife, Ellenor and I really appreciated the effort that all of your team put into making this a thoroughly enjoyable experience, all topped off with a great breakfast and a great drive back to Melbourne, with even more stories about this great City from Bambi.

Please pass on our thanks to all of the team.

Kind regards

Hi Team,

Just wanted to take the opportunity to thank Ronald and the whole crew.  We had a superb time last saturday week and cannot recommend you highly enough.

Ronald's passion for ballooning was clearly on show and he really made the day special.

Many thanks again,

Ps.  I used your app (following your suggestion) and found it to be good; easy to use and I liked the automatic update regarding details of the flight.  Having missed out on the flights 2 times before (due to weather), I found the app great given that with one quick look at the app, we could easily confirm out flight details and more importantly, that it was still on.

My partner and I had an amazing morning last Saturday when we went on our first balloon flight. We can't thank Global Ballooning enough for making this experience so perfect. Ronald took us on our flight over the Yarra Valley, he was an exceptional guide that was very experienced and knowledgeable. We couldn't have asked for a better guide! 
We can't wait to book a flight over the city next!

Thanks so much to everyone for yesterday's balloon ride- it was the most amazing experience!
All the crew yesterday were so friendly and respectful and went out of their way to make the whole experience as memorable as possible. Ronald did an amazing job with the landing too- my friend has been on two other balloon rides (Alice Springs and Mildura) and was amazed at how smooth our landing was yesterday. Bambi made sure I was comfortable at all times. Thanks again for such a wonderful experience.
Warm regards,

Just had a ride in the Yarra Valley with Ronald. I understand he hasn't been with you for very long. I just wanted to say that he was excellent: friendly, informative, clearly an expert pilot, and the smoothest landing you could hope for! Wonderful experience. I will recommend you highly.

Cindy S & Philip S - Sep 4, 2017

We enjoyed a wonderful balloon flight over the Yarra Valley, followed by a champagne breakfast. An amazing experience, breathtaking views and so peaceful. We had great fun, from the moment of pickup, helping with setting up the balloon and helping to pack up the balloon afterwards. Steve, our pilot was so knowledgeable and very happy to answer all of our questions. The ground crew Belinda & Bambi were fabulous, everything went as planned, and they obviously love what they do!! Thank you for such a wonderful flight. 

Debbie B - Aug 22, 2017

Good morning,

Thank you for a fabulous experience on the weekend. I would gladly recommend the trip and the crew.



Angela G - Proposal flight - Aug 11, 2017

Hi Kate,


Yes, someone was definitely looking after us.


Yesterday's flight was perfect. We couldn't have asked for a better person than Ronald. He was simply amazing and got us so close to the water at Sugarloaf that we could see the pebbles below the water. Everything was perfect and the landing was quite exciting when we tipped over.


Joanna and I are still in disbelief over how magical everything was. Thank you for making all the arrangements and please thank Ronald and Harry for making our day such a perfect one.




Suvarna G - Aug 1, 2017

Thank you for offering to fly us over Melbourne. I wanted to take this opportunity to thank you as well as commend the professional behaviour of all staff. 

They were friendly, entertaining and most of all my mum and I had a wonderful flight which was memorable. This time round was really special and I was also impressed that the pilot Nick knew the history behind the visit. Stony was great too and had kept all of us smiling which was great. Kate was fantastic too. 

I just wanted to let you know that everything went well.
