A Great Way to see Yarra Valley

Bambi, Brian and Daniel were entertaining and passionate hosts. We both have a strong fear of heights but felt comfortable and relaxed as we soared through the sky. It's was a memorable and tranquil experience. Recommended and we'd definitely go again.

Would like to say a huge thank you for the amazing morning Lizzie and I had on Friday with you guys!  Kiff was an awesome pilot, making us feel safe in the air and explaining every step of the way. It just felt surreal, floating over the city and not hearing any of the noise from the ground. Seeing the city from the sky and watching the sun come up was just magical!  I think I can speak for both of us when I say this was a dream coming true and a highlight of the year. Again, thanks so much for this amazing experience! Enjoy your Sunday!

Will definitely recommend!

We had an amazing experience this morning with guys from global ballooning. 100% would recommend they were very professional but still had a good joke around. Thanks to our pilot Ronald for making our flight feel safe and making it as enjoyable as it could be!

Amazing Experience

We were picked up from our hotel before sunrise. We were reminded the night before by our driver. The trip out to the meeting point was filled with an entertaining commentry on the history of Melbourne and Yarra Valley. We were involved in the set up and pack down of the balloon, which added to the experience. Our pilot Kiff was fantastic. So full of knowledge and with a great sense of humour. The view was breath taking and the commentry was fabulous. After a smooth landing, we were taken by bus to Balgownie Estate for a delicious champaign breakfast. Once we were finished, our wonderful driver, Bambi, returned us to our hotel. Would highly recommend this to anyone in Victoria.

I’ve never left a review before but this was worth it. Me and my fiancé had the best time!! The balloon ride was awesome. It was such a great experience. We flew with Rodney our pilot and mark, bambi and Daniel our ground crew. They were the ones who made it such a great experience they were all so friendly, helpful and good to have a chat with. The champagne breakfast was also very good and well worth the extra $$. I would recommend this trip to anyone. Thanks Rodney and crew

Fantastic balloon ride, great views and great staff. Very smooth ride, didn't even realise we were up in the air. Lots of 'dad' jokes kept everyone laughing. Well organised and professional. Great how they get the passengers involved to help pack away the balloon, very interesting experience. Global Ballooning staff appeared to be more organised compared to the other balloon companies. When finished, we travelled by bus back to Balgownie Estate for a delicious buffet/champagne breakfast. We continued on a winery tour after breakfast and had an awesome day. Highly recommend this company and the combined tour.

Safety first

Our first balloon ride was cancelled on what we thought was a not very windy day, but these guys take safety as their primary factor. In the end we did get above the clouds. I wont go into too much detail as i don't want to spoil it, just to say - just do it!

A Must Do!!

My husband and I were both a little nervous about this experience, but we are both so glad we did it. Amazing from start to finish, professional and courteous staff, and beautiful views from above the clouds. Don't miss this!

Tick your bucket list and DO THIS!!!!

What a wonderful experience we had from start to finish, we had a lovely calm morning flight soaring high over Melbourne with an absolute glorious sunrise, we were encouraged to help set the balloon up as part of the experience if you wanted, the time aloft was over the 1 hour promised and the landing was perfectly executed by our captain Kiff. I used this beautiful experience to propose to my wonderful partner of 2 years and we shall marry in November this year, certainly a proposal to remember for both of us. I love you Suzi.

I would definitely do it again!

The friendliness, professionalism and experience of the pilots and crew were top notch and they prioritised making sure everyone felt comfortable with the flight. Gliding through the air felt effortless. I've been to the Yarra Valley many times but seeing it from above was an unmissable way to take in all of the beauty! The champagne breakfast afterwards is a must, a great range of delicious food and coffee to help kick start the rest of the day! Thanks Steve and Bambi for making the van ride and flight such an enjoyable experience. Hot air ballooning isn't just for couples, I would recommend this to other solo travelers.
