Hot Air Balloon Across Beautiful Yarra Valley
Trinia_M
, Feb. 2020
This was a wonderful experience and the logistics were quite easy. The crew is energetic, kind and helpful in every way. Our pilot expertly steered our across the valley and provided great anecdotes as well. It was my first time doing a hot air balloon ride and I could not pick a more perfect location. It was peaceful and beautiful. The post-breakfast was delicious, and in the end, we had a full day ahead of us!

We love to fly first-timers & you are absolutely correct in saying how perfect the Yarra Valley region is for hot air ballooning. For close to 30 years now balloons have been flying over there, it's a great way to see the veiws from above and all of the other local businesses and landscapes surrounding the area. Thanks for flying with us!

Hot air ballooning in the Yarra Valley, highly recommended
Xiaoli_Z
, Jan. 2020
A perfect experience. Great weather helped certainly, as it must for the kind of experience ballooning is but the organisation, staff, equipment and pilot were first class. Our pilot Ronald was friendly and personable and clearly highly skilled, who took the time when asked to explain some of the airborne operation, playing with winds and altitudes and for that matter, answered all questions patiently and knowledgeably. Finished off with a decent breakfast at Balgownie. A wonderful and memorable experience.

Thanks for your review, Ronald is an exceptional pilot and #HumansOfGlobal staff member. Always happy to talk ballooning and share his passion with his passengers :) This will no doubt be a memorable experience for years to come for you!

This flight was the highlight of the Australian vacation. Our group had people in it with a fear of heights and they loved it as much as anyone. The experience is fun and serene and unique and wonderful. Bambi and Rain were our guides and ground crew and they were terrific.

That's so lovely to hear that this was the highlight of your trip! It just goes to show that you can overcome your fears of heights as well. Thanks for joining us in the sky!

Choloe is very prompt in replying our email and messages sent to them within an hour time. Flight was cancelled and was resceduled due to bad weather... however, they have keep us constantly updated on the latest weather condtion and flight updates... thumbs up for the effort!!
icon Response from Host , Oct. 2019
Rescheduling existing passengers is just as important as booking new passengers for the first time. Our time spent dealing with all customers is valuable and of high importance, and we understand (all too well) the disappointment when the weather is not safe to fly. Chloe and the rest of our office team are only more than happy to assist with accommodating you and other passengers onto your next preferred flight date. Being the largest hot air ballooning company in Victoria, this also means that there is not a long wait time between cancelled flights. Sometimes even the very next day you can go! Thank you for appreciating the behind-the-scenes work that goes into flying passengers. I will be sure to share your feedback with Chloe and the team to keep up the good customer service! Kind regards

Views were spectacular
Angela_C
, Sep. 2019
Views were beautiful. Saw kangaroos and cows too. Breakfast was delicious. Only bad thing was Brian was not happy with his crew and he let everyone know about it. Not very professional. Didn't give enough time for everyone to turn around for pictures or to smile or get into a position where you could be seen in the pictures, but the views were spectacular!!!!
icon Response from Host , Oct. 2019
The views in the Valley are amazing, even better when you can see wildlife! Some mornings can be a bit tricky with timing and the weather to make sure that operations all runs smoothly. There is so much to organise on the morning just to get the beautiful balloons up into the sky! Thanks for your review & so glad to hear that the views were spectacular :)

An experience of a lifetime - would denitely recommend to do it. Pilot was experienced and flight was smooth with amazing pictures taken along the way taken. Would have been 5 stars if not for the hiccup of pick up from hotel being late by almost 45mins
