Wow. This was a fantastic trip. I am usually afraid of heights so was a little worried about going up in a balloon. I would now definitely do this again. The worst part was getting into the balloon and out again but the actual travelling was great. Wonderful views from up high and I cannot praise the staff enough. Friendly and very efficient.

This was the highlight of my trip to the Red Center... Duncan, the pilot, is very experienced and I felt safe up in the air. All staff provided exceptional customer service, there were two other men, Marco and.... sadly I forgot the name. The sunrise over the Macdonnell Ranges was a fantastic experience. I can only recommend this company, very professional, skilled and friendly!

What an amazing experience this morning. The sunrise was glorious. The trip was delightful and the landing was incredibly smooth. The staff were super friendly, informative and efficient. A great sight was the numerous planes parked at the airport; and the sun rising quickly on the horizon. Thanks everyone at Alice Springs Outback Ballooning. This activity is highly recommended for anyone visiting or even living in Alice.
