We got on our flight this morning! Of course we were in very good hands as Kiff piloted our balloon :) We're very impressed with his perfect take-off and landing...but then we'd expect nothing less than that from the person who started the company, right? :)
It's an awesome ride and we enjoyed it very much...the balloon glided so gently with the wind and when we hit the clouds, it's like a grey wall enveloping us - really surreal!
It's very nice meeting Kiff & the crew :)
It was a great flight and the pilots were very professional, Nick was very well trained and executed the flight to perfection, couldn't have asked for a better flight. Well done.
The whole experience was amazing! Extremely professional in every aspect. would recommend to anyone.

Whilst it was my second time up in a balloon the expereince is simply breathtaking, My Girlfriends eyes were popping at the scenery once we were at 2000 ft with the best sunrise ever and countless vineyards below, The hands on experience gives a real sense of teamwork from start to finish which in turn makes breakfast so enjoyable. Our pilot is clearly top of his game he gave a 20 min history lesson on Balloon travel over the last 2 hundred years after guiding the other 3 balloons to a safe journey !!! He is a Credit to his company. Thouroughly enjoyable day .... Thanks ....
Hi Erin, Michael and I would like to take this opportunity to say A BIG THANK YOU!!! for the terrific work you have done in FINALLY helping us organize our well overdue flight.. We went up on the morning of the 27th of Nov and it could not have gone more perfect and for that we say thank you. You did an amazing job at being soooo understanding to our circumstances and accommodated us with great professionalism and integrity. Your words were always kind and accommodating and I think because of that we never threw in the towel, so thank you. We were extremly impressed with the whole experience and would recommend The Global Ballooning Australia experience to anyone. Thanks again, all the best.
YOU GOTTA BE EXCELLENT AFTER 25 YEARS! Well done & keep it up! :) Haha no pun intended!
The whole experience was fantastic and we can't wait for the one over Melbourne next!
The experience we had on the balloon ride was fantastic. My wife and I are already looking into a city flight. Very happy overall!!
This was an amazing experience and everything was great. Brian's stories were an addedbonus and very funny.
The hotel was lovely and within walking distance of so many great places. Dinner was delicious and the service could not be faulted. The morning was perfect for ballooning and the company was professional and again provided excellent service. A magical trip across Melbourne. A delicious Champagne breakfast to finish a wonderful experience.
We were well informed prior to the flight. Participating in the setting up and packing up added to the adventure. The flight was wonderful even though the weather was very overcast. Floating over the earth was a very peaceful feeling. I would highly recommend the experience. It is something that has been on my bucket list for a very long time. I am a senior citizen and was a little concerned about how I would manage but the staff were very helpful and I did not have any problems.
Such an amazing experience, just gorgeous flying over the city lights ... Nick our pilot was brilliant, the landing didn't go as planned and ended up landing on our 3rd attempt but he remained calm and it was great for us having a longer flight! Only negative was that it was an overcast day so didn't get to see a pretty sunrise but the views of the city and over the suburbs were stunning!
Fantastic flight, view was exellent, if you have fear of heights you would still enjoy as you go up slowly and fears are no longer there when you look at fantastic sights over Melbourne.
This trip was a birthday gift for my 50th. The wife & i had a ball, it's out of this world & yet u fill safe. It doesn't fill like you are moving up there. FANTASTIC
