Very safe and amazing views over Melbourne was like floating across the city. Needs to be confirmed early morning depending on the weather for safety well worth the adventure. Excellent sunrise views across the bay and the city. Pickup from hotel and taken to takeoff location by mini bus. Photos taken on trip by operator and supplied for a price,... More

We spent an hour after the ride dropping every couple to their hotel but us. Then they told us after dropping just us at the Pullman hotel the landing spot was minutes away from our hotel to add insult to injury.

Weather cancellations etc.... that's ok. Can't help the weather. BUT, 2 weeks before BALLOON SUNRISE went into liquidation, the 'new owner' advised my flight would be... More

I think I am in the same boat of everybody with Balloon Sunrise lately. I bought the voucher in May 2011 for both of my parents-in-law's birthday in Oct. I rang and booked a flight for Oct initially, they rang and advised the balloon was getting repaired and looked like it won't be ready by the time our scheduled flight.... More

We were booked to fly on Friday 18 November, then find out on the night of 17 November that Balloon Sunrise have 'suspended operations'. All contact phone numbers are disconnected, only a tiny notification on the top of their website indicates that something is wrong. For over 12 months we have tried to use our gift voucher. Initially it was... More

Terrible Experience! We booked two tickets. The first time flight was canceled due to bad weather condition. Second time flight has been cancelled due to the Chief Pilot resigning at short notice. We thought this is strange that they should have back up plan. The text advised us to call their office. We called their office and it went straight... More

We paid our money 5 months back and after initial cancellations we were booked for flight on 7th Nov. A message saying Pilot resigned was sent to us and thereafter no response to emails and phones. NO REFUND, NO SERVICE.. I am going to VCAT, Police., press.. Message to all affected, let us get together and get our money refunded....

This was supposed to be a special birthday present from my husband. I dialled the contact number for departure details between 6.30-7.30 (about 60 times, must worn out speed dialling) last night for this morning’s ride – 12 November 2011. This was all according to my ticket instructions. Could not get through on either number – first thought – oh... More
