Brad and Erin - Mar 13, 2014

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.

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.

A good professional service that made a good experience better. Grega was our pilot and would be happy to do it again. 

Catherine C - Dec 17, 2013

This is a chance to have one of life's best experiences confident in the professionals at work ensuring that all 'travellers' had the best time , from the initial phoning in to the pilot to the sumptuous breakfast to finish. The team included us all in the whole experience and looked after each of us and made us feel special.There was great camaraderie. The expertise of the team and the team's care for those who had some special needs were not lost on any of us . On top of that the experience itself gave us safe wings to fly over the magnificent Yarra Valley. Wow! and Thankyou! are the two words that best describe this great experience
