everyone needs to experience this balloon ride, you will wonder why it took you so long, the pilot gave an exceptional talk of the area and then the views done the rest. I don't think I've laughed so much with friends and strangers aboard. value for money and more, breakfast on return, with a glass or two of Sparkles! honestly,... More
