This is one of those 'once in a lifetime' experiences. The only thing preventing me giving it a five star was the price, it wasn't cheap for a family of four at $350)! The experience was worth it though, the crew are very professional, the...More

So, safety briefings don't happen here. If you are nervous of those things be warned. We have taken other balloon flights with highly professional companies, with all the paperwork and safety briefings. Here, it literally was ... "Get in". Getting out we were being replaced...More

We took off after another team - one out/one in...and lifted off in between high voltage cables... But skipper seemed very skilled, started and landed very safely. View over the village, river and mountains spectacular

It was very great experience!!! Even the sunset wasnt so good that evening but we enjoyed the flight very much. The price of 90usd really worth 45min flight including pick up and drop off to hotel.

It’s the cheapest hot air balloon ride (USD88) in the world, operated by Chinese. Unlike the one we did in Yarra Valley Australia, you don’t get to be involved in the balloon set up and there’s no champagne breakfast there after. Don’t expect to see...More
