We were really looking forward to our hot air balloon ride over the MacDonnell Ranges. The balloon was so overcrowded that we could not move an inch. It was so hard to turn around to see the sunrise if you were on the other side...More

What better way to see the sun rise than from a hot air balloon? Early pick up by John who kept us amused throughout. You need to be a little agile to climb in and out of the basket but help is at hand. Then...More

Thank you for your feedback although we are a bit confused by the points you seem to be trying to make. Ballooning is totally weather dependant as I am sure you appreciate. Sometimes as the weather changes we have to change our planned take off...More

Is there any way an older person with knee issues would be able to get in & out of the basket? My mother is keen to book a trip but is hesitant due to the challenge faced by getting into/out of the basket. Any advice would be appreciated.

Hi, we are thinking of booking the 30 minute flight for our short trip to Alice Springs in August, what are the approximate times for pick up and drop off? Since our visit is very short we would also like to plan something else for that afternoon, but that depends what time we will be back. Thank you very much Ruth
