Hotair.com is a very professional company. Their driver Don picked us up at out hotel at 3.45am for 50 min ride to the launch site for the balloon ride. Don is a friendly and humourous guy who managed to perk us up with his light banter even though we had only 4 hours of sleep, having to wake up 3 am to be ready for the pickup. The pilot was Ben, an easy going guy who took us on the 60 min ride, he flew us into the clouds, which was really an amzing feeling! However, his landing spot was not ideal as it was quite a distance from our awaiting vans which took us to O'Reily's Vineyard for a hearty champagne breakfast.The only disappointment was that we did not manage to spot any kangaroos during the 1 hr ride, but only some farm animals on the vast and below.
The ride was indeed expensive but it was a worthwhile experience!
