Epic experience - must do!

First time experience I had in a hot air balloon and watching the sunrise flying over Melbourne CBD was simply epic! The pilot is super friendly and passionate about what he does, ask him as many questions as you want and he will give you exaustive insights about hot air ballooning.

Absolute stunner at Sunrise

Travelled to Melbourne for our 30th wedding anniversary and recommended this activity as a special one off to do by our travel agent.... boy was she right!
Getting up at 4.30am was definitely worth it! Getting involved in the setup and packing up of the equipment adds to the experience. 

The pilot Kiff was amazing. He was passionate and explained about the science behind ballooning. The flight was smooth and the sights just breathtaking.

Would love to do the Yarra River tour another time!

We enjoyed that Kiff was passionate about flying and explained how ballooning worked and the science behind it all.

Thank you so much for sending the certificates out to us. I'm sure neither of us will forget the day but it's a lovely memento to have.

It's been great dealing with a company which cares about its customers, even after the event, so thank you. 

When my parents come to visit Australia I'll definitely be trying to persuade my dad to come on a balloon ride!

Amazing views, perfect weather and great company.

Amazing views, perfect weather and great company. A fantastic morning of ballooning and then back to Balgownie Estate for a champagne breakfast. What more could you ask for. Thank you

Amazing experience, must do!!

Absolutely incredible experience! Highly recommend it! We recently went over the Yarra Valley with Global Ballooning and it was simply amazing. The staff were super friendly, funny and ensured everyone had a great time. Definitely something worth doing and already can't wait for the next visit!

Yarra Valley by hot air balloon

I absolutely loved my experience with global ballooning Australia over the Yarra valley. They were so professional and organised and the morning was one of the most memorable. The views were amazing and the champagne breakfast delicious. I would highly recommend Global Ballooning Australia. Jade Szonyi. Travel blogger @mumwithwings note I was a guest of global balloooning and my opinion is 100 percent my own and true.

The hole experience from arrival to back at the winnery for a lovely shampain breakfast was great!

The staff at global ballooning were warm, friendly and informative. Been involved with the entire ballooning from setting up to packing up was an amazing experience. We learned so much about ballooning and of the local area and took in some amazing sights. Relaxing back at the fantastic winery sipping on amazing Champagne, feasting on a hot breakfast, enjoying a great chat with the staff was a lovely way to wrap up a great day. Cheers to the staff on the day!

Amazing trip

What an amazing trip we had! Will definitely go for the Melbourne city trip next time! Brian is nice and experienced. 非常滿意的一次旅程!根據當日的日出時間,會有司機到酒店接我們到登陸的地點(根據每天風向的不同,登陸地點會不一樣)。大概離市區一個小時的車程。不需要穿很多衣服,因為火很大,很暖和。事後還有可選的自助餐式早餐。

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.

Inoubliable ! AMAZING

Le jour de mon anniversaire une ballade fantastique ! Une équipe du début à la fin adorable ! professionnelle et sécurisant !!! J'ai vraiment vraiment adoré nos échanges avec notre co-pilote BAMBY !!! Les paysages sont merveilleux; le petit déjeuné digne de gastronomie A refaire sans hésiter :) Je reviens en Juin 2018 mon ami !!

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!
