      Excellent
      Such an incredible experience! I'm terrified of heights so I wasn't sure how I'd handle it, but it was so much fun. We got to help with set up and pack down too, and enjoyed a glass of bubbles post-flight. The pilot was friendly and knowledgeable and was more than happy to share his expertise. I'd definitely go ballooning with them again.

      fun, fun, fun
      Amazing experience. I wasn’t sure due to height fear but nothing further than the truth. the balloon just gently lifted off and we were away with 5+ pilot. Amazing views. just floating above with the rate occasion of the burners. Our landing was the best part! we all assumed our position/ hold on tight, bend knees and back to ground. The air current tipped the basket and slid about 15m. I was on top of hubby squashing him, the other 2 from aussie were a bit off centre and the guy was doing a plank! Sounds horrific but we all came out laughing and the easiest way to exit the balloon. we just crawled out no high stepping for us Champagne to finish. 100% would go this again and recommend this company. loved every minute

      Bucketlist Experience = Speechless
      Amazing trip, felt like you were just floating on a cloud. Graeme the guide/driver was outstanding, great commentary of the area and made us all feel welcome. I would highly highly recommend. We will definitely be back to do it again another day!

      Out of this world
      The introduction was great, and from there it just got better, got to take great photos and videos, the take off was so gentle, and the landing was so smooth, I had no idea it was going to be so fantastic, I would recommend this experience to anybody, and you have no worries, just do it. The team made it such a wonderful experience, thank you guys. Just one fault, not enough champagne 🍾, two glasses would be better, it's something to think about. Thanks guys.

      A really must try this awesome hot air balloon adventure. Outstanding hosts, service, hospitality, value for money, and
      What a fantastic experience! Another experience off the bucket list. Thanks Graham and your lovely team for making my friend's 60th birthday so special. We really enjoyed the professional and warm service provision, supported with great information, plenty of chuckles, outstanding balloon management skills, awesome views, wonderful hospitality. Would strongly recommend this experience. Worth every penny. Will be back for more 😊👍

      Must Do
      What an amazing experience, it was more than I hoped. Another tick off my bucket list. The scenery, above and below the clouds was spectacular.

      A “bucket list” must do.
      Very enjoyable - with mountain views reaching from Mt Hutt across to Mt Cook. Unable to fly on day one, due to adverse weather, but our host ensured we were able to fly the next day when weather had improved. An amenable host/pilot (who undoubtedly was very experienced), as were all support staff. Safety briefing both written and verbal was more than adequate to allay the fears of any anxious flyer. Highly recommended.

      Excellent 40th Birthday gift
      Excellent experience! Me and my Sister had an absolute blast! could not recommend it enough. Had to reschedule only once due to the weather, so couldn't do it on her actual birthday day, but still ended up being a really nice gift. Well worth the drive, and bringing a camera is a must. Only downside is that the group picture isn't the best as we all had the sun right in our eyes.

      Uplifting Experience
      Great first ballooning experience. Serene. Lovely views. Pilot Graeme was friendly, informative and entertaining and it was a bonus to be able to be part of the experience from set up to pack down.

    What an amazing experience I had with my fab friend Shelley. We had such a great time. This was on my bucket list which has become extremely important to me since being given a terminal cancer diagnosis a month ago. A must do regardless of your personal circumstances.
