Went on the Melbourne balloon flight at sunrise. GBA is well organised and professionally run. The staff are warm and friendly. We had a very good pilot, Peter, who was very jovial and caring. Its a very unique way to experience seeing city. What immediately struck me was the silence as one gently drifts over the landscape. THe constant ascent and descent gave a lot of different perspectives of Melbourne and the surrounding suburbs. The parklands were so beautiful when seen from above as well as the city scape. It helped a lot that we had a crisp and clear morning too !
Had a fabulous Birthday treat - a wonderful weekend at Blairgowrie Estate capped off by a sunrise hot air balloon adventure. The Global team were professionals to a T - our pilot Greg was fabulous and the experience... nothing like floating above this glorious land
We had the most amazing experience doing the sunrise balloon flight in the Yarra Valley. Such a great surprise for my birthday and beautiful morning. The buffet breakfast after was delicious. Special thanks to the staff who were super friendly and provided an amazing service. Our pilot Eddie was a legend and Tash was really lovely. An experience we will never forget, highly recommended
Thanks Eddie for a great experience. The trip was well organised, the flight very relaxing and the views stunning. Breakfast at Balgownie was a nice finish to a very pleasant morning.
Last Friday we went to the Yarra Valley and experienced what can only be described as a trip of a lifetime! Our phenomenal pilot was the exceptional Eddie the Eagle! He was by far the best hot air ballon pilot in the basket that day :D. We flew across the Yarra Valley, witnessed a glorious sunrise and even rose up above the clouds. Our expert balloon pilot Eddie, took us across the stunning reservoir above the valley which was so still we could look down and see our own reflection in the water below. To top it all off, Eddie the Eagle, gently landed the basket by a lovely Yarra Valley vineyard before being transferred to a wonderful champagne breakfast. What a beautiful morning. It truely exceeded our expectations and we will remember it forever. PS. Loved the bonus trailer ride!
This is a must do activity if you are coming to Melbourne. Great flight, tasty breakfast and the staff was awesome!!!! Eddie our pilot was amazing and made the flight super enjoyable along with the rest of the team. Would definitely do this again!
Eddy and our pilot san Were fantastic ! Great localknowledge of the yarra valley! Pro service all around and we all felt safe and had an amazing day! Bucket list for Jill and Nipper and birthday present for Laura from Ady. We could have stayed up there all day. THANKYOU
One of the most unique and amazing experience ever. Eddie, San, Jack and V was amazing pilots and ground crews. Enjoyed every bit of it. Totally recommended.
This was a once in a life time experience. I had a wonderful time and the pilots were very experienced and providing a wonderful time. We had a safe and fun flight and saw beautiful scenery. This is a MUST DO in Melbourne. You and your family would have a great time. It was interactive, exciting, safe and fun. Also, the breakfast at the end was very tasty and you have to get the photos. If you want an awe like experience, you should definitely do this excursion. Great Food...Great People.. Great Fun!!!
My partner booked us both a flight with Global ballooning for my birthday. From the great customer service we received over email right up and until the end of the flight the team didn’t disappoint. Tim who was our pilot was extremely experienced and made you feel safe and relaxed. He explained every detail with what he was doing so nothing seemed unexpected. Mark who assisted us with our setup and pack away was ever so passionate about his role and making sure that we all had a fun experience. Would highly recommend Global ballooning and have already got my friends to book on. See you again team!
Currently having breakfast after our balloon flight. Amazing! The crew were superstars...very friendly and professional. Soo informative and funny. We flew with Eddie and team. So much fun! Great experience with the teamwork before and after. So glad we did it. Definitely glad we chose Global Ballooning to celebrate a birthday :) thanks guys!
6th of July is my daughter's birthday. We wanted to make her day special and hot air ballooning is a perfect choice. This is first flight experience for our family and we loved it. The views of Yarra Valley is stunning from above. Buffet breakfast at belgownie Estate was delicious. I would like to thank Global Ballooning Team for their professionalism and making our day memorable.
My daughter and I received a balloon flight each for our birthdays. It was exciting and interesting watching the preparations for the flight. It was a great feeling slowly rising up in the air. Steve was a friendly and obviously capable pilot. It was great trying to recognise landmarks from onhigh. It was thrilling landing ,though the basket tipped on its side!
Firstly, thank you Eddie for the wonderful flight time. Amazing skills and a wonderful host. All I’d say is schedule this experience with Global Ballooning and if possible request for Eddie cause you are in for a treat up in the skies.
Had my first balloon ride with Global this morning. Weather was perfect, team professional and beautiful scenery in the Yarra Valley topped it off. I would highly recommend Global.The driver Tony was sweet and made light hearted conversation throughout the ride to take off spot.
You are expected to help as much or as little as you'd like with the inflation and deflation of the balloon. Ours was for 20 people, so pretty big. The flight was eerily serene and quite amazing, looking down from 3500 feet.....to the earth below was beautiful. Actually, quite difficult to describe.
Our pilot was very experienced. It felt very safe.
The breakfast back at the winery was okay but nothing special. Coffee from a Nespresso machine disappointing. Breakfast choices were good but not great. It didn't feel as special as it should've done.
