The service provided by Hot Air Team is top-notched. The driver picked us up on time at our apartment's door step. Everyone from the Hot Air Team wears a very cheerful and sincere smile on their face. It was a very good experience for both of us and we enjoyed the flight and the scenary very much! Thanks Hot Air!

My family of 4 just spent the last 10 days in Gold Coast. We were booked for the flight on the 2nd day of our trip. Unfortunately, due to the terrible weather in Gold Coast, the flight had to be cancelled not once, but twice! The crew were very apologetic and did their best to accommodate us in re-booking. Caleb had to send everyone back to their respective hotels, but he did so with no complaints.

Finally on the 2nd last day of the trip, we managed to take off! I felt very safe as pilot Ben was very sure of the weather, and told us that he would not have flown if he had a single doubt.
Tony and Don were great entertainers too. The entire experience was a joyful and incredibly awesome one. Of course the view was spectacular! Flying amidst the clouds was peaceful.

To anyone who wants to do Hot Air Ballooning, you wont regret booking with hotair.com.au.

Cheers!

Thanks for letting everyone know what a great time you had Ebel!
It can be tough to get up at that early time ;) but its just a beautiful time of morning to be out and enjoying a new experience as you say. We can fly only in the early morning because that's when the wind and weather is at its best, and our start times do vary with the season - we are just coming into our winter period and so a bit more time in bed is on order for everyone !
What did you do just afterwards - maybe take advantage of our free Theme Park drop off at 10.15 , or a Jet Boat ride at 11? Best wishes, Andrew

Really amazing experience. All the staff were really friendly and made the morning run smoothly and great fun. The balloon ride was really amazing. I would highly recommend it to everyone who comes to the Gold Coast. The Champagne breakfast was also great. All you can eat lovely food. Then wine tasting to finish the morning off. All in all a great experience with Balloon hot air at www.hotair.com.au

An amazing experience. The staff were all very helpful and accommodating, which helped to make this one of my favourite experiences in Australia. I would definitely recommend this as a must-do if you are in the Gold Coast

What an awesome experience! My husband bought me a hot air balloon trip for my birthday and it was one of the best presents ever. The staff were amazing - helpful, informative, chatty and extremely friendly. The views were stunning! Some were nervous about the landing but it was really gentle and being tipped over was great fun. Even enjoyed helping pack the balloon away by jumping on top of the sack! Excellent breakfast to finish the morning.Thank you!

Many Happy Returns !! Andrew
