    Everything Travel Group Review

    Wow, what a way to start the day. Getting up at 4.30am was defintely worth it to experience a magnificent hot air balloon flight over Melbourne city with Global Ballooning. Right from check in at the Hilton Hotel to finshing back at the Hilton for breakfast the operation was a smooth, on time process. Our pilot Dave and driver Barry were great at getting everyone involved in the set up and pack up of the balloon and were happy to share their knowledge and passion for ballooning. As we gently lifted into the air and watched the sun rise we were in for some pretty spectacular photo opportunities. We flew directly over the top of the city/ and I'm told Melbourne is one of the few cities in the world that you can fly over so this made for an impressive flight. Dave was great at pointing out all the landmarks and even houses of the rich and famous. If you are anxious about heights, then don't be. I didn't even think twice about it. I believe it's the gentle and smooth sensation of the balloon floating in the air along with the outstanding views that deters your mind from thinking about how high you are. The most impressive part of the flight was watching Dave navigate the landing into a park that wasn't overly large and had to fit three balloons in at once. I have to hand it to him! Contrary to my expectation our landing was very smooth. There was hardly a jolt and we were on the ground packing up within minutes of Dave mentioning we were shortly going to land. Upon completion of our flight and packing the balloon up it was back to the Hilton for a delicious full buffet champagne breakfast. I would certainly recommend choosing the breakfast option as it is a delightful way to wrap up the experience and a great chance to relax and reminisce about the flight with your fellow passengers and talk to the other pilots and crew, not to mention the delectable breakfast and champagne on offer!! If hot air ballooning isn't on your bucket list then it definitely should be. This will be a day I never forget. Thanks Global Ballooning!!

    What if the weather is bad and the balloons aren't flying?


    Hi Chris. If you book the hot air ballooning in Melbourne and the weather is poor on the day and you can't fly then you can either reschedule or receive a full refund.

    Hi, would there be any discount for a group of 5 person for the flight at Yarra Valley?
