A really relaxing drift over the country and old town of Camden. Well or gained and well managed. A very able pilot. The ride is so smooth you hardly know you are moving.

Such a fantastic experience!
The view from the air was so beautiful you can see for so far. Very serene and peaceful and quiet up there, all the massive cows looked like little ants!
The set up and pack up was pretty fun, it was amazing to see how it's all done and just how massive the balloon is up close!
The pilot Kim and the crew were very friendly and professional and really helped keeping the little ones calm and joking with them which was very appreciated!
A truly unforgetable experience!
Thanks so much guys!

Our sons gifted us this Hot Air Balloon ride 2 years ago but couldn't find a good time to book. This February, after coming back from our overseas holiday, I booked this flight for March 30, our 33rd wedding anniversary. We have to ring a number the night before to confirm if the flight will go thru and the time. Weather today was perfect. We arrived at the meeting point at Barenz Cafe at 5:30 am (we're 30 minutes early I know because I hate being late). I saw Kim (pilot), Dino and Randy (ground crew) looking up the dark sky with a binocular and I was told the they have fired off a weather balloon so they can see where we're heading with the flight. After all the passengers arrived, 16 in all, the maximum that can be accommodated in the basket plus the pilot, we set off to our launching site. After the balloon was inflated, everyone jumped in and we have a lift off. We had a smooth ride all through out the flight around Camden area and its surrounds. The sun came out as we were gliding the sky. The trip took an hour and we have a perfect landing at Camden airport, smooth as! After landing volunteers are welcome to lend a hand in deflating and folding the balloon. Then its back to Barenz Cafe where he had our hearty breakfast and champagne which is included with the flight. Overall, you don't need to be fit to join this and everybody will enjoy from age 5 to 105.

Back in February 2013, our son rang and said to have a look at our emails, we did, and to our great surprise it was 2 vouchers for the Camden Balloon Aloft. What a surprise. We have 2 sons and they and their families purchased the vouchers as a present for our 50th Wedding Anniversary. We arranged the flight for Sunday 24th March. It turned out to be a perfect morning for ballooning. The whole experience proved to be really great, right from the booking, to signage on the roundabout directing us to the carpark, to being met by the team. Both before and during the bus ride to the launching site, the team were so thorough with checking if the weather and winds were suitable for the flight.The take off was so smooth, we didn't realize we had lifted off. The whole flight lasted around 1 hour and 15 minutes and again the landing was so smooth, setting down ever so gently at Camden Airport. I must congratulate Balloon Aloft for having such a great pilot for our flight, his name was Kim, he kept us informed and answered any questions any of the 14 passengers asked.I must admit we were a little bit apprehensive before the flight,as we hadn't been up in a balloon before, but everything went so well there was no need to be concerned. The whole experience was wonderful and we keep telling others how great it is to get up there to see a different view of our local area.Thank you Balloon Aloft. Rosemary and Ron.
