Owner description: Sunrise Balloons is based in Queenstown, New Zealand, flights are scheduled daily, all year round, weather permitting. Queenstown is quite possibly the best landscape in the world to view, and it's even better during a hot air balloon ride followed by a champagne celebration. Come and experience Hot Air Ballooning with us!

This was an amazing experience from start to finish. The team was so professional and organised, being scared of heights I thought I would be nervous, but I really felt very comfortable as they are such a professional bunch of guys. The views are amazing, something I will always remember. A must do in Queenstown. Many thanks for the memories.

Wow, wow, wow - summaries this trip. The best way to see Queenstown from above, captures everything in one hit! Would do this trip again tommorrow and I bet it would look different again. And to top if off you finish with bubbles & pastries! Yum. Thank you to Sunrise Balloons.

Eight people of five nationalities in a little basket suspended beside lakes and between mountains at dawn, up and down through the clouds. No sensation of flying, because the balloon moves at the speed of the wind. Just moving along, like in a movie, panning the spectacular scenery of Lord of the Rings. Less than an hour. Champagne after. Highly... More

I had the best morning with Sunrise Balloons, what a way to see the sunrise above the mountains!!! Having never been in a hot air balloon I was slightly nervous, but I had no reason to as Rock and the team were extremely professional and made me feel at ease! It is fascinating to watch him fly and land the... More

This was something that I wanted to do before I left NZ and it was worth the wait and money. Great pilot, stunning views and good company all contributed to a great morning! Well worth it.

My trip was a birthday present from my family, the only reason I wanted to go to Queenstown was to do a hot air balloon flight. The weather caused delays and I was worried I was going to miss out but, magically, on the day I left everything came together and we went up. It was worth the wait, I... More

We had a wonderful time and the view was amazing, everything was as we have imagined. Great navigation by Rock and great fun with Squid. Definitely a recommended tour if in Queenstown, the view is just too magnificent to describe!

Big props to Ben and them team who took us up. Very friendly team of people. We had to wait a day before we could fly due to weather conditions, but it was well worth it. Fantastic views, can't wait to come back down to see it during Winter. Quite interesting that you don't know where you are taking off... More

We were booked to fly on a Tuesday but that didn't go well because of technical issues so we were scheduled to fly the next Wednesday. We were picked up from the hotel right on time. We had a very relaxing time while on flight. The staff were very nice too. I would highly recommend this experience to anyone visiting... More
