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! « less

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

Our son had kindly booked this for our first day and it was a fantastic welcome to this amazing part of the world. Friendly staff picked us up and took us to the launch site. Very efficient set up and soon we were off, brushing some trees to wake us up! Very skilled piloting took us around the areas with... More

You will get picked up at your hotel at 5:45am, but it is worth the early morning. You spend the first hour watching them set up the balloons which is actually fascinating. There were 15-18 people in our balloon but there was actually a comfortable amount of room for the trip. They set up a go pro camera too to... More

Sometimes you just have to get up before sunrise. This is a very good reason to do it. Picked up at your accommodation and taken to a paddock somewhere in the valley. You then get to help inflate the huge balloon then jump in a wicker "picnic" basket. Before you know it you are flying over the countryside in complete... More
