I had planned a surprise for my wife's birthday. I must say we enjoyed it to the core. It was indeed a fantastic experience that we had on our trip. The breakfast in the end was also good. Special mention goes to Mr. Tony. He is a person with abundance in energy. Also the pilot for us on that day. Mr. Ben. I must say Hot Air is a must do activity for those breathtaking views that one can enjoy while ballooning.

We booked with Hot Air Balloon Gold Coast to kick off a special birthday celebration - and it was INCREDIBLE! The staff were lovely, highly professional and the whole operation ran very smoothly. The early start to the day was totally worth it, with incredible fog all around that made taking a bad photo impossible. If you're visiting Australia - or looking for an experience that will give you memories that last a lifetime - do yourself a favour and book a hot air balloon ride with Hot Air Gold Coast.

Our experience with Hot Air Ballooning was out of this world!
My partner surprised me with this as a present for my birthday and I have never been more grateful. The staff were exceptional at what they do and the scenery was breathtaking. The pack down process was made enjoyable by the friendly staff. Opt for the package with the buffet brekky at O'reillys, you will not be disappointed. I highly recommend using Hot Air Ballooning, Gold Coast for a mind blowing ballooning experience! it will change your life!
