Me and my husband went on a flight yesterday 13th April. It was truly amazing, breathtaking and just so peaceful. The views were amazing. The pilot we had 'Dean' was fantastic, he made the flight enjoyable and so relaxing. The breakfast was so nice and a great end to a fantastic early morning! Everyone from Global Ballooning Australia were so informative and really lovely people in general. It was a lovely end to an amazing 2 year Wedding Anniversary. Thank you to all that made it so special!
The take off was perfect and the whole experience was fabulous, some of the flight was above the clouds which was a great experience. The flight over Melbourne and the scenery was just great. Will definitely do another flight soon I am 71 and it certainly was one of the highlights of my life. Thank to Tim our pilot and Chris his assistant for there care and attention to everyone one board. The breakfast was delicious also.
We had our balloon flight this morning & all of us, including one with a fear of heights agreed it was great fun. Thank you to the team for a pleasant & fun morning!
The day of our flight was foggy & low cloud so it was touch & go as to whether we were going up. The staff kept us informed through out then the decision to have breakfast first was made. Breakfast was beautiful & the staff fabulous. Then we were up & away. Being involved in the set up & pack up was also a lot of fun; got people talking to each other straight away. Due to the low cloud we couldn't go as high as usual but still the stunning view over the valley was amazing.
I just want to say a big thank you to the staff at Global Ballooning Australia. Everyone I dealt with has been fantastic.
On our 6th try we finally got to go up and it was such an amazing experience. I would definitely do it again!
To Kate, Erin, Brian and the entire Global Ballooning Australia team,
Now that we have had a chance to catch our breath, I would like to say a MASSIVE thank you for all your assistance and support in helping make my proposal plans become reality.
The first time I came into the office to enquire about my idea of proposing in one of your balloons over Melbourne, Kate & Erin were simply fantastic in assisting me to plan out the entire morning to ensure it went smoothly. My never ending stream of questions were always answered and left me feeling completely confident that the morning would run smoothly.
Our amazing pilot Brian made flying look easy despite the weather challenges. As planned Brian and the ground crew were ready to disguise our photographer Maria with a Global Ballooning Australia hat to ensure Erin (fiancé) had no idea what was planned. After giving Brian the secret thumbs up he positioned the basket with the city as the backdrop for the photographer and I was able to put my plan into action. Erin was absolutely blown away and with a mixture of shock and happiness while wiping away tears, she said yes making me the happiest man in the air that morning.
Once again, I can't say thank you enough for all the help and assistance everyone at Global Ballooning Australia gave me. You helped make my dream of asking my best friend to marry me come true.
Brad & Erin
The morning was perfect. Mist in the valley, clear skies, but not too cold. The facilities were very comfortable, and the flight magnificent. One of the best experiences we've had.
Hello, I flew with Global Ballooning Australia on the 7th of March and I'd just like to say how amazing you all made the experience and how helpful you were. I would personally like to thank Erin O'Brien for all the help you gave me with getting the seat balloon over the Yarra Valley, and all the emails in general helping to book this amazing day.
Would also like to extend the thank you to the people on the day, Dean for being so helpful with getting Georgia on board, Victor - the pilot for making the flight so amazing and accommodating to the need we had and all the other staff we met for being so friendly and accommodating. We really appreciate the lengths that everyone went to make the day so enjoyable. It will be a 21st present never to be forgotten.
Thank you all so much,
My husband and daughter took their flight yesterday and both thoroughly enjoyed it; in fact at some point in time they will do a city flight as well.
The reason for my email today is to congratulate the staff on their friendliness and assistance to myself and the other guests that we had booked in for breakfast. Although we were not flying we were made to feel welcome and they went out of their way to ensure that we knew what was happening and allowed us to follow as they tracked the balloon. We were very pleased to be able to watch the balloon land as well as take off.
Grega and his crew treated me with a lot of dignity ( as l am disabled). The flight was fantastic !
This was a wonderful experience for us. A great getaway, a great gift from our children and something now taken off our bucket list.
First flight and was impressed all around Good work!
Firstly of all, I was a little skeptical initially of Hot Air Ballooning as I'm a little scared of heights and wasn't sure if I could handle it, luckily I was wrong I didn't feel scared at all if anything the complete opposite, very comfortable. It was one of the best experiences. The staff and our Pilot Dean were so passionate about their role and making sure we helped out and got good photos etc. We had an amazing day and we were very happy we got up that early in the end. Watching the sunrise was so peaceful. Would highly recommend doing it.
Thank-you for all your help in organising this event for us!
The feedback is extremely positive and we all had an amazing time! It is definitely an experience we will never forget!
What a spectacular view floating over the city & looking out over the bay watching the sunrise. Service was great, everything ran on time. Would not hesitate to to it again!
