My partner and I were lucky enough to take a flight with Global Ballooning Australia on the 17th of December 2010. Little did I know that my partner was plainning on proposing. It was a truely magical experience and it was made that much better thanks to the crew and our piolot at global Ballooning. Chris was amazing and nothing was too much for him, he even thought to take hotos for us once we landed as well as of us packing up the balloon. We got to share a glass f champange during our flight. The whole team at Global Ballooning Australia was fantastic in the setup of this huge suprise and momentus occasion in our lives, and it ran so smoothly and was truely amazing, right to every last detail, the single basket and the huge banner that said " Will you marry me Kodie" Thank you so so much.
We find your service from start to finish an excellent experience! We are especially impress with our pilot David who has been very engaging in this adventure, he and our ground crew Barry ensures that we participate and understands the activity. It was efficiently executed including the availability of our photos on CD, ready for us to take home, not to forget souvenir certificate to show off to family & friends! Well done! Cheers to all in your company!
Special thanks to Burkey, 'Grandpa Stoney' and Nick our pilot. Their friendliness and conscientiousness in making sure we were all catered for (including our spectators) was beyond expectation. Nick - your expert handling of the balloon and instructions were excellent. Thank you for a truly fantastic flight and a beautiful breakfast. Jean and I had a thoroughly enjoyable day.. You can be very proud of the great people in the field. Every aspect of our flight was first class.
Just a short email to express my pleasure and appreciation with the balloon flight this morning ... Kiff and the crew were great and Kiff really relaxed us all during the flight ... it was a pleasure flying with him ... all too soon it was over :-(
A very enjoyable experience & we found the pilot & crew very professional.
I would just like to thank you again for an amazing experience. I couldn't think of a better way to spend a beautiful morning. Thanks to Brian, Simon and Sanjay for a thoroughly enjoyable experience from the pick-up, the registration, the flight, and the wonderful breakfast.

Firstly thank you very much.... The whole morning was fantastic and Sanjay was an awsome pilot, we were all very impressed when he landed the baloon on the back of the trailor lol
Absolutely awesome! My whole family had the time of their lives. Thank you.
Awesome Experience! Totally loved our flight the other morning! Hats off to our wonderful crew Dave and Bourkie! Great personalities and professionalism! I would love to go again! It really did blow my mind! As well, the breakfast at the Hilton that followed was a bonus. A class act Global Ballooning Australia!
We went on a balloon ride on Saturday morning (15/1) and wanted to acknowledge the wonderful crew we had and the amazing experience it was! Dave the pilot and Bourkie his assistant were just the best. They were very professional, yet friendly. They aimed to please and very quickly had the ten people in our basket working as a team!
We cannot speak highly enough of their efforts and would like to thank them especially for making us feel safe while giving us a fun-filled, wonderful experience.
I had always wanted to go riding in a balloon and now I know why!! It more than exceeded my expectations! Thanks again for an experience of a lifetime.
