Extremely professional people with great sense of humour and superb organisation. Hot Air is 'The' destination for ballooning in Gold Coast. Right from the on time pick-up from the hotels, to the professional commentary and organisation, safety briefing etc., these guys know what they are doing. But the experience on riding the balloon itself and the views from the top... More

I am afraid of heights. Not so much afraid, I get sick...dizzy...panic! So it took a lot for me to take the flight that was given to me as a gift (?) and I procrastinated and stalled and made excuses. Then, I did it. WOW! What an awesome experience, the pilot was so professional and exuded that quiet confidence. We... More

I recently went hot air ballooning for the first time on the Gold Coast with Hot Air. They are very very professional. The staff provide excellent service, are very knowledgeable and I felt safe and secure at all times. The views are amazing. We could see all the way to Brisbane. Although it's was early and cold this is one... More

We went with Adrenaline Hot Air Balloons. Got washed out the first morning. But rescheduled a few days later and was exceptionally good. No bouncing around and as gentle as could be. Floating high up without a care in the World. Very early morning start but time after to have breakfast. Great morning thrill.

We were in the air for about an hour due to wind conditions but we had no complaints - we just enjoyed the ride and time in the air. Staff were professional and courteous. As we had been in the air longer than usual, we missed out on packing up the balloon.

Took the package with breakfast and wine tasting. The sunrise view was spectacular and was high up 4500ft from the ground. Not forgetting the staff and hot air pilot are super duper friendly. Kudos HOT AIR.

According to them they have the largest fleet of balloons in the world..but what they did was absolutely pathetic.. After the balloon ride which was for 20-25 minutes, they landed us to some landing site in middle of some farm..then they told all the tourists to line up nd help them roll and pack the entire balloon in that remote...

Hello Mr. Rushabh, We're dissappinted to hear that you didn't enjoy all of the aspects of your balloon adventure. With regard to your assertion that your flight was 20-25 minutes, I can assure you that all of our flights are a minimum of 30 minutes as advertised - and they often extend well beyond 30 minutes. We keep records of... More
