Thank you for a simply spectacular experience. It was a real privilege to fly with you Sunday and take in the marvellous beauty that is the Melbourne cityscape. Melburnians are so fortunate to be gifted this unique opportunity and Ballooning over Melbourne with Global Ballooning Australia should feature in everyone's must do list. The entire operation from start to breakfast, Pilot to Ground Support Crew is true testament to the professional and skilful mastery of your craft. The pre-briefing and inflation and deflation instruction process enhanced the experience without taking away the thrill of the adventure. I know from experience how frustrating it can be when you are at the mercy of the elements and Sunday's weather was close to ideal conditions from a passenger perspective.
Thank you again for a truly memorable experience. Stay close to your mail box.
Thank you very much for a wonderful experience overlooking Melbourne city on Monday 26 August. It was a perfect day! Nick and the crew where very helpful. It was an absolutely blissful experience.
I am just writing to let you know that I enjoyed my flight last Saturday, and that it was a great experience.
Nick and the others were very professional and the flight was very exciting.
I will definitely recommend it to our customers.
We had a perfect morning and I was particularly impressed with Deans knowledge of the winds, which meant he predicted at the start where we would end up.
Good afternoon Global Ballooning Australia, OMG! We got home at 11.15 am after a flight and breakfast and we have not stopped talking! We have looked at all of our photos and we have sooooooooooooooooooooooooooo many and there is not one that we had to delete! MELBOURNE IS CERTAINLY MARVELLOUS! It is Blake's 19th. Birthday today and how amazing that he actually got to go up on his day and the weather!!!!!!!!! After the rain last night we thought that it would not be going BUT Melbourne turned it on for his day!!!!! I have bronchitis and I was so full of antibiotics and tablets and sprays but the instant the balloon left the ground I felt amazing! This was such a wonderful way for our son to start his birthday and we thank you for your service which is just hard to fault. From the first contact by email, meeting place and briefing, flight, pilot-he was just amazing-what an asset to your company, equipment and breakfast-a very professional service that we can recommend highly. THANK YOU GLOBAL BALLOONING
Worth the wait. Magic views, beautiful morning. The crew was fantastic, particularly our pilot Dean. Has was very informative and great fun. Very funny guy. Good at this Job.
A great morning was had yesterday by myself and 8 friends as we floated peacefully over Melbourne in our hot air balloon. What a different experience it is to see the city from above. Everything about our trip, from our booking, pre-flight information,the flight itself and the following breakfast, was managed in a highly professional manner by the Global team. Our pilot's experience and skills were first-class - even landing us on the balloon trailer at the end of the flight! Some wonderful memories for us all and something to recommend to others wanting the same.
I was very impressed with your check in system for the hot air balloon flights! David was a very engaging pilot on the morning.
We were given this Yarra valley flight as an engagement present and the overall experience was very good.
I was a bit hesitant in the beginning as our pilot didnt seem very interested in us at the start and the crew were talking to us more.
I appreciate all the effort that would go into the entire experience, the pilot's experience, safety issues and the big job of getting the balloon ready and packing it back up again...
The flight was lovely and i didnt mind helping to get everything started.. but at the end it was difficult cause the paddock we landed in was really bad.. but that can't be helped i spose!
The breakfast at Rochfords was lovely - someone on here complained about it and i dont know how they can.. but each experience to their own.. you were never short of food or any drink you needed. Also, the pilot sat with us for breakfast and reclaimed himself and we had a good chat. I'm very grateful for the experience. However, for the money its worth, i would only do it again if i didnt have to pack it up.. lazy/selfish me? maybe.. probably. And again.. i understand why its alot easier for us to help.. but its alot of money.. But im sure other people really get a kick out of it!
We had a wonderful experience. Brian, our pilot and crew were friendly and informative.
ow! My dear friend A..a took me on a balloon flight over Melbourne this Anzac day morning. In short, it was a fantastic experience that I would highly recomend to anyone. The flight was so peaceful yet exciting as we drifted along at the mercy of the prevailing wind. We saw Melbourne from a completely different perpective and it looked so beautiful as the sun beams broke through over the Dandenong ranges. Our pilot, Nick, was very skillful and experienced and we felt completely safe. Although there are many suitable landing sites, it took a while to find one that lined up with our trajectory, so we just kept on drifting. We thought was great, as we were enjoying the flight so much that we never wanted to land! Eventually, we came back to earth in a paddock near Roweville, as distance of about 40km (by road). A beautiful experience.
I really appreciated the professionalism of Dean whilst in the air!
Nick was a great pilot and everyone is very helpful!
My partner and I went ballooning with Global on Sunday. We had a fantastic time and experienced all round great service from an enthusiastic, professional and well organised team. They were spot on with timing and made sure we knew exactly what was happening prior to and throughout the morning. Nothing was too much hassle, and they happily dropped us back at our hotel for breakfast and showed us our photos before everyone else so we would be back on time.
The flight itself, amazing! We highly recommend it! Hats off to our pilot Kiff who was great!!
We had an amazing morning! Thank you!
