We loved this. After an early meeting time, we met our fellow passengers and made our way to the launch site where the sun was starting to rise and the views were incredible. After watching each balloon inflate it was time to get on board the balloon for our flight. Unfortunately one younger passenger started to get very upset and... More

It was an early morning start, where we all met at Petersons Champagne House. Firstly we registered, then were offered tea/coffee/water, we were sorted into groups, allocated a pilot and off we went in different modes of transport to the paddock where our balloons would launch from. Some of us assisted in getting the balloons ready and as the sun... More

Loved every minute of this wonderful experience! We were lucky to have an amazing sunrise and perfect weather. All staff were very professional, enthusiastic and knowledgable. I personally did not find it in the least bit scary. Would recommend it to any one.

I can't thank the team at Balloon Aloft enough for such an amazing experience! I am actually scared of heights but found I was completely at ease and comfortable after being so well looked after by the staff. We began our day at 5:15am meeting our pilot Nicola. Nicola is not only exceptional at flying, but she is warm, bubbly... More

We received the flight as a gift from our family. They followed us in their car with our young grandson aged 21/2. The staff were very inclusive of the 'extras' which was an added bonus to the enjoyment of the flight overall. We had a perfect morning and enjoyed a calm, comfortable and entirely relaxed flight over the beautiful Hunter... More

Everything from the beginning when booking, to 'check in' the morning of, the flight itself and champagne breakfast was fantastic and a really smooth process. The staff were wonderful, explained everything as we went along and were really friendly/approachable. Balloon riding was incredibly exciting, the views superb and we will be back to do it again.
