An Unforgettable Experience!

As hard as it may be to get up early to join this sunrise hot air balloon ride, it is 100% worth it! What a spectacular experience to watch the sun rise over the Yarra Valley as you float gently above the trees. Absolutely breathtaking views!! After you land — and help get the balloon secured and put away — you’re treated to a great buffet champagne breakfast back at the lovely Balgownie Estate. The staff at Global Ballooning was really great. Grega, our pilot, was clearly a skilled professional; Bambi, our tour guide for part of the day, was outstanding — extremely well-informed, personable, and funny. We transitioned from the Global Ballooning team to a winery tour. The bus wasn’t the greatest, but the tour was a blast...concluding at the gorgeous Domaine Chandon. A great day that we will long remember!

A memorable balloon flying trip. Nick Hambley, Georgia and the whole crew team were very professional, efficient and friendly. Their cheerful personality makes even the waiting and setup time tolerable. Daniel’s hotel pick up was punctual and well communicated. Pilot Steven Buckley makes the fly and landing extremely smooth and fun. 
Overall very well organized trip that I’ll recommend to friends. The the flying journey itself definitely worth a 2am wake up morning :)

Thanks again, Fran

熱気球に乗れるところはヤラバレーの他世界各地にありますが、これほど大都市の近くをフライトできる場所はこことストックホルムしかないと思います。初夏となる11月に乗りましたが夜明けが早いのでホテルのピックアップは4:15とかなり早起きしないといけません。夜明けとともにゆっくりと気球は上昇し朝焼けのメルボルン市街をゆっくりと見おろすことができます。気球はほとんど音がしないのもいいですね。バーナーを焚いて上昇したり下降したりして約1時間のフライトを楽しめます。途中、気球の外に吊るされたカメラで写真を撮ってくれるので後で購入することができます。撤収は乗客みんなが手伝います。フライトが終わると同じ気球に乗った乗客の間でなんとなく連帯感が生まれます。オプションのシャンパン付き朝食もおいしかったです。フライトだけでも$480とお値段的には少し高いアトラクションですが、それだけの価値はあると思います。おすすめ。

Hi,

we had an experience of a lifetime today Ballooning in the Yarra Valley. We would like to thank our pilot Brian and his crew. As soon as we arrived we were taken care of and given all the information we needed to make our day enjoyable. Being afraid of heights I was very anxious about the whole experience but this was soon eased as I realised we were in expert hands. Thank you to Global Ballooning for an amazing experience.

Thanks again from the McConachys

一度乗ってみたかった熱気球。天候もよかったので景色は最高でした。飛行時間がやや長く最後は飽きてきた。自分たちでふくらませて、部活気分で乗れたのはたのしかったですが、片付けはちょっと疲れました。よい体験ができたと思います。

I took the balloon ride on the above mentioned date. It was a wonderful experience.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank the entire crew Bambi, Belinda and Ronald for making it memorable for me.

Hi

Just a quick, but huge, thank you to all of the team at Global Ballooning for a fantastic day today.

Everything (despite the early start) was fantastic today. It all started with Bambi’s enthusiasm and entertaining/informative stories about Melbourne’s history and development as we drove from the hotel to the launch site and then the wonderful flight experience with Ronald flying us across the stunning Yarra countryside. Making anything that difficult look easy takes a huge amount of skill and experience. 

The flight was made even more enjoyable by Ronald’s commentary and instructions on how to fly the balloon, absolutely fascinating.

My Wife, Ellenor and I really appreciated the effort that all of your team put into making this a thoroughly enjoyable experience, all topped off with a great breakfast and a great drive back to Melbourne, with even more stories about this great City from Bambi.

Please pass on our thanks to all of the team.

Kind regards
Stephen

Hi Team,

Just wanted to take the opportunity to thank Ronald and the whole crew.  We had a superb time last saturday week and cannot recommend you highly enough.

Ronald's passion for ballooning was clearly on show and he really made the day special.

Many thanks again,
Adam.

Ps.  I used your app (following your suggestion) and found it to be good; easy to use and I liked the automatic update regarding details of the flight.  Having missed out on the flights 2 times before (due to weather), I found the app great given that with one quick look at the app, we could easily confirm out flight details and more importantly, that it was still on.

My partner and I had an amazing morning last Saturday when we went on our first balloon flight. We can't thank Global Ballooning enough for making this experience so perfect. Ronald took us on our flight over the Yarra Valley, he was an exceptional guide that was very experienced and knowledgeable. We couldn't have asked for a better guide! 
We can't wait to book a flight over the city next!

Thanks so much to everyone for yesterday's balloon ride- it was the most amazing experience!
All the crew yesterday were so friendly and respectful and went out of their way to make the whole experience as memorable as possible. Ronald did an amazing job with the landing too- my friend has been on two other balloon rides (Alice Springs and Mildura) and was amazed at how smooth our landing was yesterday. Bambi made sure I was comfortable at all times. Thanks again for such a wonderful experience.
Warm regards,
Karen
