Michael & his staff at Ballooning Canterbury were fantastic. A first rate shop with great staff, efficiently run, shared knowledgable information and always felt safe the entire time! A must do when visiting Christchurch to get a real sense of the landscape. Beautiful Canterbury - thank you Michael

This is a fantastic experience. My daughter Emma took me out for a 68 birthday treat. Thoroughly recommend this up up and away experience. Great team, thanks Mike.

We were lucky to squeeze in a balloon flight on our NZ holiday. Our pilot Nick was great at pointing out things of interest and was happy to answer all questions fired at him. We were able to travel about 16km - quite a long way in ballooning terms. Both my husband and I enjoyed the everything about the experience including the hands on helping to set up and pack up the balloon. I would happily recommend this experience.
