So amazing to see our region from up in the balloon and loved our Pilot Ben explaining what we were doing and pointing out landmarks. A great experience for the whole family - not just adults

This was an amazing experience with Hot Air Balloon! So peaceful and beautiful! I was amazed that I was not at all nervous. Our pilot, Stewart, did a great job; liftoff was a breeze and landing was so soft.

The Scenic Rim looked so different from up there, and the experienced pilot, Dhawal, ensured that we were safe. The lift off and landing were both surprisingly gentle.
It was a surprise birthday gift for my husband, and he enjoyed it. It was a great day.

For convenience, we stayed at the Canungra Camping Grounds so it was only a ten minute walk to and from the pick up site, where we were greeted by a friendly driver who took care of our transit for the day. He was quite likeable and funny.

Thanks for your attention to the little things too, like the happy and helpful attitude of the staff and also their thoughtfulness in bringing out a birthday cake for Peter at the restaurant afterwards. It was a really positive experience and we will happily recommend to your business to others wanting to experience some satisfying adventure.
