Without a doubt an absolute highlight of our Australia holiday. All of the staff and pilots made the early morning start great fun. Our pilot Ben was great and very happy to answer all of our questions and put everyone at ease with his smooth flying. The breakfast after was nice would have loved to stay a little bit longer to keep drinking the lovely wines. We would also like to mention that our jet boating experience was also very fun. Two tours we had never experience before and will never forget. Thank you.

Daniel and myself really enjoyed the experience today adventuring off above the clouds with Hot Air and then the breezy Jet Boat ride after. The panoramic landscape was beautiful and you could faintly see the city skyscrapers in the distance. WOW! A spectacular morning and a very friendly team. We will be recommending this to our friends coming up in May.

Me and my partner will for sure come back again!!!! Was such a nice little adventure ballooning in the morning which was lovely and calm and then a bit of thrill seeking in the afternoon on the jet boat. As it was my first time on a jet boat and in a hot air balloon 100% recommendation for paradise jet boating and hot air to look after you.

A massive shout out to both companies for such an awesome day, we couldn't be happier that we picked this combination as we were so lucky with great customer service and two amazing experiences. Ballooning with driver Josh and pilot Frank was great they were really friendly and informative. We were then dropped off to meet our jet boating tour after which was also fantastic and I highly recommend as well!
