My husband and I had a wonderful time flying with Jay this morning. Celebrating our wedding anniversary we were thoroughly looked after by everyone. Our pick up driver was great. Fun, safe and professional. Our pilot Jay was excellent too. We loved his enthusiasm for his job and we had the best flight on a stunning morning. Breakfast was lovely and we have some wonderful complimentary pictures of our truly memorable day. Thanks to everyone 💙👍

Amazing experience and crew. On the way to the take off site, our driver Tenny let us stop to buy bandaids and was very kind and entertaining. Once getting to the site, it was very organised and we were in the basket ready for take off very quickly. Our pilot Daval was very helpful and entertaining- pointing out features of the land throughout the flight. The views were beautiful and we were able to watch the sunrise and take many photos. For landing and pack up, the crew, including Kenny, were very efficient and we were able to get moving in no time. I highly recommend this experience!

31/1/21. Hot Air Ballooning We cannot thank Hot Air Balloons enough for the experience of a lifetime. One to absolutely tick off the bucket list! And to be honest, we’d definitely do it again. We were fortunate enough to share this adventure with a group of our nearest & dearest friends to celebrate a special milestone birthday. From beginning to end, every aspect was beyond perfect; from the bus pick up with Kelly, to meeting our Pilot Jay. There were some pre-nerves & plenty of excitement but once we met Jay we knew we were in great hands. Jay’s been doing this for a long time & even though early that morning the rain crept in, Jay had found ‘a sweet spot’ to launch from, where we were virtually in our own zone of sunshine & clear weather for the entire journey. We began to ascend, but it didn’t feel like you were moving & so silent (apart from the occasional flame bursts). Even our super chatty group were so blown away by the breathtaking views, they hardly spoke (for a short while anyway). Lol. Spectacular doesn’t begin to cover it!! Jay landed us so softly & asked if we wanted to tip the bucket (which we did) - haven’t laughed so hard in a while & everyone pitches in to help take the balloon down. Picture a stack of adults rolling around on top of a billowing balloon, (killing themselves laughing) all while dodging cow pats. Thanks also to Joe (team member)for meeting us on the ground). Back on the trailer to the bus & onward to a yummy champagne breakfast at O’Reillys Canungra Valley Vineyards. Beautiful valley, creek & even an Alpaca Farm! Thanks Deb for organising. We didn’t want our time to end. If you are looking for a breathtaking adventure for that ‘special’ occasion, with a team of true professionals then you can’t beat Jay & the team from Hot Air. You won’t be disappointed. Dee & Richard

Hey Dee and Richard, firstly, thanks for joining our experience! Wow - it sounds like you had THE perfect morning. We've passed on your review to the entire team, as it really provides the motivation to keep doing what we do. Thank you. Secondly, big hat tip for taking the time to write such a long review. It's obviously warm fuzzies for us, but more importantly, it really does help the wider audience get a feel for what our experience involves - there's nothing like feedback from people that have just done it! Cheers from the Hot Air team.
