Just received our 'Ascend Certificate' from Go Wild. Our family gave us a voucher for our birthdays to go ballooning and my husband & I were very apprehensive. Loved this experience, like standing in a room with no windows and just gliding along as the wind desires. We travelled alongside other balloon companies doing exactly the same thing which puts...

My partner booked this trip as a birthday surprise for me and it was pretty amazing We had a picture perfect morning and a lovely experience. The only troubles we had were getting to and from the pick up/drop off as we were on holidays in Melbourne so we didn't have a car. It was an additional $200 in taxi... More

What an incredible experience! It was a chilly -4 degrees 630am start but boy was it worth it. Perfect conditions and the most beautiful sunrise. Mark our pilot has a very dry humour and was very informative. Peter one of the crew helped with set up and packing of the balloon. Highly recommend to get involved in the process. Considering...

My husband and kids organised a balloon flight for my 50th birthday. We combined it with an accommodation package at Chateau Yering. The night we stayed, the balloon was cancelled due to bad weather. I called to rebook soon after and was fit in the next day. No problems at all rebooking. The staff were very helpful and friendly. Our... More

My husband and I chose Go Wild Ballooning to go hot air ballooning over the Yarra Valley as his birthday present this year. They were prompt in getting back to our query about flight availability over the Easter period and we booked for Good Friday. One slight niggle is that you have to call the duty pilot the day before... More

Be very careful if you make a booking with this company, and do not get a "package deals" In the case of any wind they will need to cancel the trip, and they will keep 100% of the cost of the flight. The savings on the accommodation is only a small amount and it would be better to book the... More

Go Wild B, Manager at Go Wild Ballooning, responded to this review

It is always disappointing when a scheduled hot air balloon flight is cancelled due to inclement weather, however, passenger safety is our first priority and we will not fly if it is not safe to do so. No other ballooning company flew in the Yarra Valley on the morning of your cancelled flight. Our pilots are trained in meteorology as... More

Had a Groupon - gift from our daughter - so off we went. Arrived 30 minutes early because it's amazing how quickly you can travel at 4.14 am! They kept us informed of what was going on as they waited, tested the wind with a small helium balloon and then took us to the launch site. Set-up was efficient &... More

Don't know how this company can have so many poor reviews. Either they've really stepped up their game or people are complaining about nothing. Booked for 14th Feb, couldn't go ahead due to weather. Pilot was genuinely sorry & helped connect me with the office staff the next morning. Office staff rebooked it for us quickly the following week. All... More

We went on a flight a few days ago and other than having to be at Chateau Yering at 5.00 it was generally a great experience. The staff were great and very professional. The only problems were that I had to cancel my husband out as he was not well and that cost $25 to change the details to my... More
