We had had an amazing flight with Sanchiro as our pilot. A perfect day and a perfect flight. I am not great with heights but it was so smooth and gentle that it somehow made the height ok. An amazing experience that I am pleased we did with Global ballooning.

Hi Carolynne, I too struggle with heights but never when I am floating above in a hot air balloon. It is just so peaceful and tranquil. I am so pleased that we were able to provide a perfect way to start your day. I will be sure to pass on your feedback to Sanshiro. kind regards, Danielle and the GBA team

We are thrilled to hear that you enjoyed your hot air ballooning experience tomrG9612JQ! It's always great to hear that we were easy to deal with - over many years of experience we have developed an informative process to advise all our passengers with the most up to date flight information. We are the only Victorian ballooning company to use a mobile app. We have found this to be a great way to communicate as it allows us to send notifications. We also love the champagne breakfast - it's the perfect way to end the morning. Kind wishes, Danielle and the GBA team
