    First and formost, I wish to thank you for giving us the 'Time of our life' on board your hot air! It was simply Superb! Who ever sees the pictures are envious! It was worth getting up early to be ready for the 'Flight' and the feeling when up in the sky was Exhilerating! Thanks for the good time you organised for us. Warm regards, Urvashi

    “Up Up Up In the Sky”
    Wao.... we can't believe that there's hot air balloon tour in Gold Coast. Yes. Right in Gold Coast. Waking up early the morning to catch the sunrise up in the basket. It's an amazing experience to watch sunrise in the open air & above 7000 ft in the sky. After 30 mins, our experience pilot managed to touch down safety after changing drop off pt twice.
    We thought that it was the end of tour. But no. We had to help in keeping the half a million $ balloon and load the basket onto the trailer. & a last group photo on the trailer. Cheese :)
    After that, it was a short ride to ORiley for champagne bfast. Oh my oh my... what a luxury to have a traditional Australia English bfast with liquor with the full view of the valley and vineyard right in front of us. (via Trip Advisor)
