Owner description: Take off on a romantic hot air balloon ride, every day, west of Port Douglas and the Great Barrier Reef, hot air balloons take off into the wide open blue skies. There's something about floating in the still morning sky in a hot-air balloon that brings out the romantic in all of us. It could be the absolute silence; it could be the feeling that you're as free as a bird.

It was an early start but a beautiful cool morning and misty at the same time which made for beautiful light for our photos. The tour was on time and we felt very safe watching all the safety precautions go on, Pilot Johan was funny and informative to and driver Jada made for a great bus ride there and back which was included

Had a special and romantic time out with the hotair balloon crew - was a very professional and well organised morning, they kept us well informed and we felt safety measures were very reassuring and that we were in the hands of experts. A fantastic Romantic trip

This is my second time hot air ballooning but the first for my daughters. We had the most amazing experience watching the sun rise from our balloon. Making beautiful memories with my daughters over the magnificent Atherton Tablelands was so wonderful. This experience was made even better with the wonderful staff who know what true customer service is all about thankyou to Shaun and especially to our fantastic bus driver Dean. They made packing up the balloon a funny experience. We ended our tour with a stop at the local market where we grabbed some freshly made breakfast thanks to all from raging thunder adventures you guys are awesome

First time in a hot air balloon, but a great experience. So quite as you ascend into the early morning skies. Only interruption is when the burners fire up and the noise of the forced flames into the balloon wakes you up to the realisation this thing is hanging up there by a massive volume of hot air. The pilot was informative and these guys are really good. landed in a paddock full of thistles but this just added to the wonderful adventure.

A truely wonderful experience, from pick up at 4:20am, to delivery back to Port Douglas. Just a few tips- it's not cold up in the balloon, so don't bother with too many layers, take something to eat for the trip home. The staff were very friendly and helpful. For those who don't like heights, neither do I, but I felt totally safe the whole time.
