Wonderful experience floating like a cloud
Aug 2021
Our family went up, up and away with Hot Air Balloon last Sunday. Everything was so well organised and professional. From when Oliver (our very friendly bus driver) picked us up to actually taking off in the balloon with our pilot Zendon. Then you had the ground crew of Wayne and the boys to make sure everything was perfect. We felt totally safe and informed every step of the way. It was a wonderful peaceful experience with breathtaking views that we will never forget. I also have to mention the day was topped of with a yummy breakfast at O’Reillys afterwards and they even surprised us with a cake for our 25th wedding anniversary. I can’t recommend this company enough. Thank you so much.

Fantastic experience
Aug 2021
I was surprised for my birthday with a hot air baloon ride. I wasn't all that keen at first but when we arrived at the launch site my opinion changed. It was actually exciting just watching these massive baloons fill up.
We were 1st baloon aloft in it was absolutely amazing. We were airborne for 45-60 minutes and I could have been up there for hours.
Would highly recommend this for anyone. We even had a member of our group terrified of heights but even she was excited about the trip.

I had a wonderful time flying over the scenic rim of the Gold Coast hinterland with Hot Air. From the bus pick up at Canungra to the drop off after breakfast, it was a great experience. The staff I had interaction with, from the original booking, bus drivers (yep, 2 flights postponed due to drastically foggy conditions), the pilot, Jay and his team were all wonderful. Friendly, welcoming, knowledgeable and with a love of what they do made it all a great experience. The day I finally flew was a perfect weather day, Jay loves doing what he does and loves to share this with his passengers. The bus drivers were great. I felt in very safe hands for the duration of my experience. I would highly recommend Hot Air ballooning if you have the chance to go. Definitely should be a once in a lifetime experience, or even more given the opportunity to do something so wonderful. Full points from me!

Hot Air Ballooning Adventure & Bucket List Tick for Marry Me Marilyn
Aug 2021
I have always wanted to travel in a Hot Air Balloon a definite on my bucket list! Yesterday that dream came true flying over the Gold Coast Hinterland the Scenic Rim with my husband Marcel. The scenery was absolutely spectacular, the mist hung over the Wyaralong Dam, the landscape looked like it belonged in a model train set the cows like tiny plastic figures and the farm buildings. The shadow of the balloon projected onto the trees as we glided through the air and we were surrounded by the mountains of the scenic rim on one side and Brisbane in the distance like a tiny magical city in the Wizard of Oz. Our Pilot Dhawal was excellent, very relaxed & informative without being intrusive and gave very clear instructions and a remarkably soft gentle landing. Our driver Tenny was also very good, considerate and helpful! The champagne breakfast at O'Reilly's was a lovely in their gorgeous surroundings with time to stroll by the creek and look at the Alpacas afterwards. I often perform weddings at O'Reilly's Canungra Valley Vineyard as I am a recommended celebrant for them but being a guest was a brilliant experience! Our experience overall was exceptional and I recommend Hot Air Balloon Gold Coast to anyone wanting to fulfill a bucket list dream...great job team! Nothing like exploring your own backyard! Thank you again Marilyn & Marcel xoxoxo

A fabulous morning - worth every minute of this amazing experience flying through the sky
Aug 2021
What a fabulous morning for our 25th Wedding Anniversary. 4 balloons towering above you in the field with a gentle lift off into the sky was exhilarating, peaceful and serene with 3 balloons beside us and the sunrise was spectacular. The breakfast was the icing on the cake with the best eggs. The Alpacas were the cutest with a newborn was a delight. We give this trip 5 stars and thank the team for a fantastic morning flying!!!

We opted to see sunrise so when we were picked up at 3.30am from our hotel, we thought we could catch the sunrise.
