The balloon Aloft was the most fantastic, amazing out of this world journey of our lives. The thought was frightening at first but the flight was adventurous, picturesque. Gliding through the skies like a bird. It was the best. Recommend it to everyone. Once in a life time must do. Ticked of our list of things we would like to... More

We chose Balloon Aloft considering their reputation and reviews online and they stood by what we had expected. We had great time and one hour ride was excellent. Matt - Our flight captain was pretty much involved in showing us hunter valley and some of most important spots. We had great time. Highly recommend this.

This was a Christmas gift from my partner, I've always dreamt of going for a balloon ride. The team at Balloon Aloft were fantastic. We arrived at 4:45am where we had tea and coffee and signed in and then put onto buses to go to the fields where the balloons take off. We had 16 people on our balloon but... More

This was a magical flight, the pilot Clay was super friendly and helpful. My boyfriend proposed to me while we were in the air, and I couldn't have asked for a more magical place to get engaged. Thanks team.

Initially it was very interesting and fun but became a little disappointing during the flight owing to the noise of the hydrogen burner. The landing was exciting and the breakfast was sumptuous
