We had a 'once in a lifetime' morning yesterday, thanks to the weather and Global Ballooning Australia!
Kate, a big thank you to all the wonderful staff at Global Ballooning Australia
My son and I loved our balloon flight on Friday morning
The weather was perfect, we did miss going over the city but we did get to fly from Doncaster and land at moorabin airport
We enjoyed a lovely breakfast and of course purchased the balloon usb with pics, i have been showing everyone and hoping I can get others on a flight soon
Everyone has been wonderful, from organising flights with emails and phone calls, to the wonderful staff getting us up in the air to back to the hotel for breakfast
David could inform us all through the flight of where we were, or what building was what, he has great knowledge and he made our flight a wonderful experience
So please ensure you thank everyone as they make are just as important as you are in the office to making our flights so enjoyable.
I will do it again and hope my next flight is over Melbourne city as that would be amazing.
I sent emails out to around 100 people through friends, family, work colleges and clients today
Told them all to book a flight, even an email has gone to NZ to let the staff know when they come to Melbourne they must book a flight
What an awesome experience! It was more wonderful than I could imagine. We were lucky enough to fly right over the Yarra River taking in the sites of The Eureka and Crown. Most memorable. Thank you so much!
Hey guys. I took one of your balloon trips in Melbourne in December last year. You have asked me for email feedback and I'm sorry I haven't replied as yet. The experience of ballooning was one of the best things I have ever done. Thanks so much for an unforgettable day. Brilliant weather, great people in the balloon with me, loads of spectacular photos (I have some to share if you'd like to see them). Just let me know. Anyhow, thanks for an experience that I have been able to share with many people, and I hope to do it again one day.
Thank you for the opportunity to fly with your company, we had an amazing time. I’m sure lots of people provide photos back of their experiences, and you’ve had plenty of professional shots taken, but I have attached a couple of pics I took with my iPhone and I was really impressed with!!
Enjoy, see you again soon.
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 !
