One of our favorite New Zealand experiences! Friendly people, gorgeous view, and a wonderful time!
You arrive early morning, but it's totally worth it. After a brief bus/van ride to a field, you can help unpack and set up the balloon, with lots of photo ops. Pilots were very knowledgeable and friendly. We took to the skies in time for lovely photos with the sunrise, the countryside, and the mountains off in the distance. Even for those afraid of heights or prone to motion sickness, we never had any issues and felt safe the entire time. After landing, we enjoyed champagne, orange juice, muffins, and fruit, and could help pack the balloon as well.
Great experience; highly recommended!
