Seeing the fields of bananas, mangoes, sugar cane, and pineapples, as well as the kangaroos, during our sunrise flight was an unforgettable addition to our trip. Our pilot, Shane, did a masterful job flying, and , providing commentary on what we saw below. Also, thanks for a delicious brekkie in Port Douglas. What a brilliant way to start the day!

My wife and I took a 30 mins flight during our honeymoon. The whole idea of being swept away by the air, the beautiful sunrise with kangaroos in the background, sweeping views of the farmlands meeting the sky were absolutely terrific. The entire tour was very interactive with us all of getting involved in unpacking the balloon to putting it in the air to repacking it. A must-do tour.

A lovely morning, we felt your staff and team were extremely friendly and such fun. We have tried a few times to go ballooning here at home but it never seemed to happen, your Australian weather is obviously well suited to ballooning. Cheers.

Just wanted to say that we had the pleasure of doing a balloon ride with you in Mareeba on 4 December and wanted to write to say that it was probably the best organised trip I have been on. Everything went like clockwork - you picked us up on time and dropped us off (at the Clarion Beach resort) on time which is something we are not used to back in England. Special thanks to Rob, Shane (the pilot) and Simon who drove us there and back. Packing away the balloon was as enjoyable as the ride itself and I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending you to anyone at all. Thanks for an excellent trip! Best wishes Graham

We were undecided on doing the flight but so pleased we did. Our only regret was our tour got to the start to late and we did not see the balloons being inflated. The trip was breath taking and the fun at the end helping to pack the balloons away made it alot of fun. Loved the breakfast to finish and cant wait to get our photos of this trip.

We had a flight with Hot Air on the 29th June 2003. It was one of the best days ever, and as it was our honeymoon, it was really special. Everything was just great including the fantastic breakfast at Tjapukai, to the markets at Kuranda, and also the Skyrail trip down the mountain. We couldn't have asked for a better day, and all of your staff were great. We also received our photos a couple of days ago, and they are a great reminder of the fun we had. A big thank you for the best day!!!

Review_From: The Family Of: Cairns, Australia Date: Wednesday, 02 July 2003

Today we took a balloon ride with your company. The entire day was wonderful. I believe that this was especially so as the staff that you employ even make locals feel valued and ensure that they also have an unbelievable experience. On the way from Coconut Village where we left my friends car, Michael made sure that we were all prepared. His attention to detail during the whole time was excellent. My two children aged 10 and 7, also loved the whole day, this was to a large part due to Michael's attention and inclusion. During the drive home they sat up the front and chatted like I have never heard them before, the entire time Michael showed them a great deal of respect and encouraged their questions. This type of hosting is very impressive, and along with David and the pilot of the balloon will leave us with a lovely experience to share with our respective friends and family. We will be doing the type of advertising you cannot buy, but you certainly earned it by employing and encouraging these fantastic people to be themselves.

"My husband and I just wanted to say how much we enjoyed our ballooning with you on Tuesday morning and we also wanted to point out what a multi-talented crew you have. On our drive up the mountain, just before dawn, our driver, Rob, noticed a young grey mare wandering on the opposite road, obviously lost. Rob, kindly asked all of us in the bus, if we minded stopping for a few minutes and then he went out onto the road and whispered in her left ear and lead her off the road and into a paddock nearby. We all gave him a round of applause on his return but I just thought you might like to know, that your drivers are not only friendly but skilled horse whisperers too! You Aussies are certainly a versatile bunch. Thanks again, we always said we wanted to go ballooning one day and this has made our Australian holiday, very special."

Dear Hot Air Ballooning, Hi how are you all? I would like to thank you for my unforgettable experience of Hot Air Ballooning. I agree with the claim on your web site that you have the best crew, they are all friendly and have a great sense of humor. Our pilot Michael was very reassuring and knew an abundance of information about the local area, once again I can't speak highly enough about your ground staff including Patrick who was our driver. The breakfast we enjoyed at Tjapukai was delicious and an was an interesting place to visit. Hope to see you all again on my next trip.

We went on Hot Air on June 25, 2001. It was a blast! Michael, our driver, was a great comedian and Shaun was a splendid pilot. We went on 2 rides. Shaun explained everything with a smile and answered all of our questions. I highly recommend Hot Air not only for their professionalism, but also for their wonderful hospitality! They treated us like family from the time they picked us up at the hotel. Thanks for a memorable event! Now we want to ride on more hot air balloons.

Thank you for my in-flight photos - they turned out well - thank you! Brought back memories of a fun outing - my first time up in a balloon. One of the best parts was, when I was part of the "chase" , the balloon coming across from a pasture of cows - a Brahman herd of breeding cows? I had as much fun watching the cows as I did getting the balloon packed back into its bag. All your crew was professional and I felt safe and secure at all times. Thanks, again, for a neat adventure!!

I have been afraid of heights for my entire life. I never even gave hot air ballooning a second thought, I would NEVER go. Then, I had a research paper to do in class about hot air ballooning and when I found this site, all I could say was... "I want to go!!!!". The pictures are amazing and the virtual flight was really cool too. I still am afraid of heights but I can't wait to go flying!!

We had a fantastic time on the balloon trip. Your guys are fab and made it great fun especially the rolling up part at the end.

But we were only off the ship for 48 hours so had to make the most of it. Thanks again
