    What a fantastic day! Everything was perfectly organised and we will never forget the beautiful landscape of the hinterland - so different than the Gold Coast scenery and without doubt the best way to see it. Our Children, Jessica and Harry have not stopped talking about it! We will definitely recommend you to all our friends. Thanks for everything Paul and Sisse

    “An experience of a life time!!!”
    We recently just did our first hot air balloon ride with hot air at the gold coast. The day couldnt have been more perfect! We were a bit worried that we were not going to be able to do the hot air balloon ride as there was rain forecasted for the day (ballooning is heavily dependant on the weather) but this time we were lucky! We were picked up by the hot air bus in one of its meeting points on time and the bus driver on the day was extremely friendly and was more than happy to answer any questions we had on the day no matter how ridiculous they were! Then we met with our pilot Blake who made the experience all worth while.. You could see that he had such a passion for what he did and had a persona which made everyone feel at ease, even if they were scared of heights. The views were spectaculor! And everyone had a great laugh whilst in the air and packing up the balloon. The breakfast at the vineyard was fantastic, and the service was truly Australian, very laid back and fantastic. We had plenty of opportunities to take some fantastic photos and relax before being dropped off to our meeting point. Not to mention we were very well fed! The experience is definately worthwhile and i do plan on doing it again and again and again... I had my cousin here from o.s. for the first time and really wanted to show her a piece of Australia. She really enjoyed her day and loved the attitude and spirit of not only the farmer that we met but also blake and our bus driver. We had such a fabulous day and I would honestly reccommend hot air gold coast to anybody that is looking for an experience of a lifetime! Thanks a million hot air!!! (via Trip Advisor)

    It was such an amazing experience! I've always wanted to do a hot air balloon ride at the Gold Coast.. no regrets! It was a foggy morning but the views were spectacular. The only unfortunate bit was not getting to see the actual city skyline as it was too distant. But the landscape views and sunrise more than made up for it all. It was a stunning sight! (via Viator)

    Thank you so much to the people above who have added posts. Its my partners birthday on the 23/10/14. All he asked for was a birthday cake and that's all. I'm going to purchase a one hour hot air balloon ride for the both of us. I'm afraid of heights but I know hot air balloon is on his bucket list and also he's turning 50. I was so pleased to read that it comes with a champaign breakfast and best of all a birthday cake. So I'm making sure he gets his birthday cake. I am nurvous but I keep coming back here to read the above post. Thank you all once again for your positive and encouraging posts. Bring on 23/10/14.
