    WOW! What a day. As they say " Best Crew ". A special thanks to Brownie ( I think?) who in our opinion deffinately made the trip a very funny and informative one. The crew were all halarious and our pilot was AWESOME (we were told it was his first landing, but found out afterwards he had done over 5000 hours). What we learnt was to never take the crew seriously, if they say theres a whole in the basket- dont worry. If they say the pilot is a "learner" dont worry haha. The balloon trip itself was a blast, fun and some great views. Was also quite neat to get to know a few fellow Kiwi's whilst on the trip. Once again thanks for the great time! We will be recommending HOTAIR to everyone.

    “It's simply awesome experience.”
    The whole experience from the setting up to the flight and ending with the balloon packing is exhilarating and unforgetable. It was the best birthday gift that I will never forget. The staff is friendly and helpful too. (via Trip Advisor)

    “great fun in the air and on the ground!!”
    My partner and i, were picked up from our hotel and driven to the launch site, we watched all the balloons go up then we got in the busses and chased them down, then it was our turn it was great, you could see so much ov the beatiful landscape, when we landed the wind picked up and tipped the basket on its side, it was so much fun!! then we helped pack it away it was a laugh, thanks guys it was awesome!!
