Went to this place a few years back and only now have the opportunity to review it. Other than it was freezing cold and you need to rug up ‘ it is one of the most amazing experiences you can do.
When your in the air the sun coming up is totally amazing’ the silence is amazing as you are travelling the speed of the wind. You travel at a height above 4000 feet for a bout a hour
The staff are amazing and are informative. A must do
Great value for money experience, especially with the post-flight buffet breakfast. Worth the early morning wake up to see Melbourne and the CBD from above.
Big shout out to Steve for flying us around and showing the sights, and to Mark for involving us in the set up and pack up of the balloon.
We had our Yarra Valley Flight this morning. The flight was very fun and the scenery was beautiful. The staff members are all very friendly and professional. They contacted us through emails, phone calls, text messages and wechat many times before the flight date making sure everything was in order. We got picked up from the city near our apartment by Raine and Theo in the early morning and were dropped back to the city after. The whole experience, including the flight and some activities before and after, totalled nearly 3 hours and it was very entertaining throughout. Also, Raine rushed to process the photos and we received them before we even got back home.
Balloon ride was an amazing experience. The view was so serene and spectacular sun rise, the beautiful wine yards....You can see the true beauty of yarra valley! I was so lucky to experience all of this. Sanshiro you're an amazing pilot..???? We simply enjoyed the flight … !!! I must say I was delighted with the total experience. Thank you Global team you guys are amazing ????
We flew in the yarra valley on good Friday and I have to say it was one of the best experiences I have had! Unfortunately our first flight was cancelled in Feb due to a lockdown. But we were so pleased to be able to rebook and had amazing weather for our flight. Was definitely worth the wait. The staff were super friendly and accommodating. And there was plenty of communication before the flight to let us know all the details and if the flight was proceeding. Couldn't speak more highly of this experience! A must do!
My wife bought this flight as a birthday gift for me , and what a gift!
Wonderful experience, helping out inflating the balloon and even packing up, great to feel part of it. Would definitely recommend.
Very professional team , very confident in our pilot Georgia whom made the adventure enjoyable and safe.
A huge thank you to all your staff involved on the day.
They have given us a life long memory.
This was our first flight but won't be the last, thanks again.
Excellent service and experience! I was worrying if I could handle my fear of heights during the balloon flight. The manager has called me before the flight to discuss about my concern. One of the crews was so caring and thoughtful. He comforted me and helped me to relax. The travelling experience with hot balloon is actually peaceful, secure and comfortable. No fear at all (I fear of stairs and experienced panic during hiking). The views were absolutely stunning. Sunrise was breathtaking. The pilot was professional. The crew member checked if I was ok after landing. When I reached home, I received an email from manager who asked about my experience. It’s so heartwarming that they really care about the people. Highly recommended, esp to people who fear of heights to give it a try!
Fabulous trip over the Yarra Valley on Easter Monday. Everyone was SO friendly, accomodating (especially since the Easter Sunday trip was cancelled due to high winds), and genuinely focused on ensuring we had a great experience. Would absolutely recommend. And thank goodness for the clouds so we could experience sunrise above them! Shoutout to Theo, Bambi, Mandy, and Ronald (and know there were others)!
The experience was amazing. The entire process from booking till the end was seamless. Communication was timely and professional. The staff are friendly and fantastic. They have put so much thought to providing a good experience to us, even to the slightest detail.
We really enjoyed the experience and the breathtaking views. We would fly with global ballooning without any hesitation.
My husband booked this for me as a gift. We had the most perfect morning ballooning. The weather was still and we enjoyed a lovely sunrise. Ronald and the team were fantastic, they were very informative about the experience and we got to get involved in preparing the ballooning which was fun. Ronald is very experienced and the flight was so smooth including the landing. I’m normally afraid of heights but I was fine.
Highly recommend the experience!
We had a fantastic morning flying over Melbourne with Global Ballooning! The staff are just brilliant at what they do, making it all look very easy. If you pay attention to what is being done you will notice the skill and expertise are mind-blowing.
What an amazing morning flying over Melbourne. Thanks to Steve and team for making our experience great!
The breakfast was delicious!
Friendly and knowledgeable staffs! Great service! Amazing ballooning experience! Looking forward to another day in Melbourne CBD!
The whole experience was awesome. The service of Ronald and the other staff were great. Highly recommended
Global Ballooning showed us a great time for our first hot air balloon ride. They were very professional and stayed in constant communication before the ride to keep us informed of weather conditions. All staff were very friendly and fun. I could not recommend them more highly.
