Thank you to everyone. It will be very easy to recommend quality trips such as yours. The 30 minute flight was memorable especially taking off.

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.

The sunrise was spectacular to say the least and the feeling of gently sailing along is difficult to describe. Out pilot was very knowledgable and kept us well informed with details about the balloon and the etiquette involved in hot air ballooning. The whole thing was just magic.
