“Great Experience!”
Reviewed September 18, 2012

The pick up time was at 3.55am. Yeah, it was 3.55am. It is because the cool stable calm winds and the weather in the morning are most suitable for hot air ballooning.
After the pick up from our hotel, it took about 20 minutes to pick up others and subsequently took about 1 hour to bring us to the hot air balloon launch site.
Woke up in the early of the morning was really hard for me! However, when I was flying high with the hot air balloon, my hard work had been fully rewarded! It was really amazing! The scenery was just spectacular! I would definitely recommend hot air ballooning to all my friends! It is an experience that you should not ever miss when you go to Australia!

They picked us up at 4am at our doorstep. The journey to the launch site was about an hour.
The ballooning experience was amazing. Breathtaking view and beautiful sunrise. The pilot was friendly and engaging. Following that, we had champagne breakfast at O'Reily's vineyard to complete the awesome morning.

“Hot Air Ballooning with Dad”
Reviewed September 15, 2012

What an amazing morning!! Totally worth getting up early to see a beautiful sunrise floating in a hotair balloon! I would reccommend this adventure to anyone, even those that are not keen on heights!! The baskets are very big and secure and make you feel as if you're still standing on the ground, even though you're floating thousands of feet above it. It's very smooth and you just float without any sensation of being lifted off the ground at all.

I gave my Dad this voucher for his Birthday and went along for the ride with him. It was an experience neither of us will forget! A big thank you to all the crew from Hotair Ballooning for a breathtaking ride!! You were all very friendly and professional.

After an early start, what an amazing day we had with Hot Air. The entire experience was smooth from pick up to drop off, and even included the Super Moon!! The staff were friendly and the actual ballooning was breathtaking. We had the most perfect day and can't believe we hadn't been sooner. The buffet breakfast at O'Reilly's Vineyard was a fantastic finish to the morning.
My only advice would be to ensure you have enough space on your camera for plently of amazing photos.
If you've been thinking about going, don't put it off any longer.

“Amazing experience!!”
Reviewed September 13, 2012

The early wake up call was definitely worth it. It was such an amazing view of Gold Coast. I've always wanted to try this and it was awesome. Good amount of time up in the air. The breakfast after was good too! And they drop you off after where you want which was very convenient!
