My partner and I had a wonderful weekend that started with the accommodation package at the Pullman on the Park, floating over the city was magical and nothing like what I ever imagined it would be... it was better when my partner proposed as the sun was just starting to come through the clouds.

I would highly recommend Global Ballooning to anyone

Brian and his team made my partner and I feel exceptionally welcome right from the very moment we arrived. The day was filled with plenty of smiles and laughs, amazing views and breathtaking scenery. All in all an unforgettable and amazing experience, could not recommend it highly enough!! Thanks for everything, we will definitely be back again.

Nick and Belinda were a wonderful team and made us feel so comfortable on the whole ride. It was my first ever hot air balloon ride and I was nervous and excited but they were so wonderful at explaining everything! We went on the Melbourne city ride and the scenery was just amazing and it was wonderful seeing how beautiful our city was! Thank you Global ballooning for making this the best experience of a lifetime!

Hi,

My mother-in-law and myself finally took our balloon ride with Global Ballooning on 19th December 2016. 

We had originally booked our flight for a day in November but the day before the flight my mother-in-law was attacked by a dog and had stitches in both feet and was in her bed for a week and slowly back on her feet over the next 3 weeks.  She is 88 yo so she takes a little time to recuperate.  The staff at Global Ballooning responded well to my query about re-scheduling our flight (less than 24 hours prior to the flight) asking for a doctors certificate which was supplied. 

Although it took us another month to re-book and take our flight, the experience was well worth the effort of getting up at 3am to get to the pick-up point on time.  Nick and Mark were wonderful hosts who have a calm manner and who work well together.  The after-flight breakfast was subdued but tasty and filling.

Marj and I really enjoyed the morning and will not hesitate to recommend Global Ballooning to friends and acquaintances.

Best wishes,

Chris and Marjorie F

I would just like to say thank you for such a beautiful 21st birthday experience. My partner surprised me the morning of my 21st birthday with the tickets and I couldn't have asked for a better morning. Our pilot Brian was great, and even had everyone sing happy birthday to me above the clouds! I loved seeing Yarra Valley from above and rising above the clouds was incredible. Such an amazing experience that I will never EVER forget.

Thank you again,

 Alyce

Melbourne from the sky

"My friend and I were blessed with the weather yesterday. We booked only about a week in advance and thought our chances of actually flying were fairly low seen as it's winter. Melbourne put on a show yesterday with clear skies. We both had vouchers from the Entertainment book which made our experience a lot more affordable. The flight itself was fantastic as was the breakfast buffet. I would highly recommend this as an experience as the views of Melbourne are beautiful from the sky! Well worth the early start!"

Amazing!!

"Spent the morning of my 24th birthday in the sky over Melbourne. Absolutely amazing, the staff were so lovely I felt like I'd known them all my life. Not scary at all it was fascinating and I would go back and experience it all over again if I could. Superb breakfast after 100% worth the extra to add it on. Such a great experience thanks so much global ballooning!!!!"

Amazing flight! Off the bucket list!

"We took a family trip over the Yarra Valley, and booked a package with Global Ballooning that included breakfast.
The entire experience was really completely beyond expectation. Global Ballooning are a very professional outfit - we felt completely safe, the logistics are 100% organised, scenery was incredible and breakfast was delicious.
Would definitely fly with Global Ballooning again!"

One of the best experiences of my life!

"Booked the tour through our concierge and couldn't be happier with the Global Ballooning team. The main individuals we worked with were Brian (pilot), Bambi (helper) and Vee (driver) and they were all fantastic in giving us the best experience possible.

The views were absolutely spectacular and they made all the passengers feel completely at ease, despite a few nerves jangling.

The food as well for the breakfast afterwards was top notch and the photos are well worth the extra few dollars after the ride. 10/10!"

My partner and I went on a balloon ride over the Yarra Valley on the 6th June. It was a bit chilly in the morning but when you get up in the air it's quite nice so I recommend layering up. The day was fantastic even though it was the beginning of winter. Rolling fog in the morning which burnt off to reveal a beautiful sunrise and clear day.

The pilot Brian was great fun as well as the ground crew. We had Peaky drive us around and he was awesome. Great down to earth guy with heaps of knowledge. You're involved from the very beginning in the setup and pack up which was fun for us.

My partner really enjoyed the champagne breakfast. I'm not a drinker myself but it is a buffet breakfast and the hash browns and mushrooms made it worthwhile.
It's not something that I could afford to do every weekend but I'm so glad we did it with Global Ballooning for our 3 year anniversary. Couldn't have asked for a better experience.
