Amazing!! Made a really good start to the day. Staff are really good and helpful. Balloon flight was an amazing experience pilot was really kind and funny. Would do it again no worries at all. Would recommend the 60 min flight, money well spent. Cheers

The early start is so well worth it and I highly recommend you book the 1 hour experience. The views of the tablelands as the sun comes up are 2nd to none and are truly amazing.... A definite must do!!! Staff all really friendly and totally professional.

An amazing experience was well worth the early wake up call. We waited in the lobby of the Novotel​ and the driver came into collect us which was nice because it was dark outside. We had about a one hour drive to Mareeba, luckily the bus stopped at the coffee van on the way back! The staff were friendly and the balloon ride was great. The flight went for approximately one hour. We were back to our hotel by around 10am. This company was great to travel with, very professional.

We enjoyed the ride, we flew for just over an hour and saw some great views and seeing kangaroos was a great bonus. Watching the balloons being blown up and helping to roll it up and put the giant balloon back in the bag was very exciting and interesting. I am glad we did the longer flight as we got to see so much!

This was my first time traveling in a hot air balloon. Both the experience and the pilot was great! Got to see a beautiful sunrise and breathed fresh air. Well worth the early morning wake up call for such a beautiful trip.
