A perfect way to start the day. The team organising this were both expert and friendly. We started before daybreak, drove to a lift off sight and were floating through the air at dawn. Landing was softer than our last plane landing. We were then driven back to our meeting point and had a champagne breakfast. Fabulous!
Thanks very much for your review!
Happy to hear that everything went perfectly for you & that this experience was softer than your plane landing :) I would certainly hope so.
Hope this is something to remember forever!
I’ve lived here all my life and not ‘visited’ my home town. This is a great way to start. Floating over the city you see all of the great landmarks we take for granted - MCG, Yarra river, Fed square, Botanic gardens etc....
Global ballooning did a great job of not only showing us the sights but were fun, especially when it came to the packup of the balloon. There was a lady on board with mobility issues, they were super supportive and made sure she was comfortable.
Want to see Melbourne? Take a balloon ride over Melbourne, you won’t be sorry.
I’d recommend the team we had - Darius and Mark.
Thanks for your detailed review Colleen D!
It's nice to be a visitor in your own backyard isn't it!
Every one of our flights is different, some passengers get to float over the same flight path as yours and others will see other parts of Melbourne & it's surrounds.
You were probably on our Easy Access Basket - the only type of its kind in Australia. It has a door on it and was designed for people with mobility issues to experience ballooning. It's been very rewarding being able to fly so many people in this basket.
We appreciate your kind words!
Hope to have you experience the Yarra Valley next time :)
