What a hoot this was! An excellent pilot in Duncan, hilarious wingman in John, and droll driver and salesman in Andy… a fantastic local experience highly recommended. Oh, and the ballooning was just lovely in the cool morning air watching the sun rise over the Macdonell Ranges… 5 stars! 🌟

Starting the flight in the half dark and all of a sudden the sun comes up to give an amazing view across the valley! The gentleman controlling the balloon was knowledgeable, showed us amazing sights and also made us feel very safe!

This was such an amazing experience. Floating above the ground was smooth and landing was easy. It was really a breathtaking way to start the morning. Dress warmly.

Wow wow wow! Such an amazing experience. This was our first tour at the beginning of our 7 night holiday in the NT and it was such a memorable way to start it. The crew were entertaining and professional which gave a great vibe to the experience. A light breakfast and champagne to complete the tour was wonderful.

Thanks, always happy to hear that our passengers loved their morning with us and we think it is a great way to start your holiday in the NT. A bird's eye view of the desert landscape that you are about to explore, there is nothing better.
