    Yes, definitely a different way to start the day, I'm usually on the ground or in the office, but when I get the chance to go for a flight I'm reminded how magical it is. There is a lot of work and experience behind what we do so very glad you enjoyed the flight and took the time to review Hot Air Balloon Tasmania on Tripadvisor.
