    “Great start to our stay”
    We recently visited the gold coast from Brisbane and decided on hot air ballooning with . The entire experience was wonderful (perhaps other than the early wakeup!). After a short drive through the countryside/mountains we arrived at our take-off site where they were setting up the balloons. With the sun rising this site was beautiful and interesting. Soon after, we jumped in the balloons and set off through the countryside taking in views of the countryside and animals which was complimented by our great pilot (and our trainee pilot who came along for the trip) who took the time to point out interesting sites to us and snap a few photos with us in them.
    Being scared of heights I was worried I might have some problems but the ride was smooth and very enjoyable! To top it off, we had breakfast with a glass of champagne at O'Reillys and took part in some wine tasting before being dropped back out our accomodation. The trip even included a suprise proposal!

    It was a birthday present for Chris not realising he was so terrified of heights and flying. I was very much looking forward to the experience but he was not so much. When we arrived at the site for lift off it was the sheer size of this balloon being inflated that was so intriguing. The men that were involved with this operation were very impressive - they obviously knew exactly what they were doing. My husband was alittle nervous but somewhat distracted by all the activity and how massive the balloon was. Then it was time for lift off; the noise & heat of the burner adds to the excitement of watching the trailer below getting smaller and smaller. Amazing how high we got and how serene the flight was. It seemed like we could touch the scenery below us being in this basket yet we felt very safe in the hands of the pilot as he displayed such competence. The landing was amazingly gentle and then deflating the balloon was lots of fun too. Finished with a lovely visit to the winery for a hearty breakfast. Suffice to say Chris was very pleased with his present. (via Trip Advisor)

    Really great experience, thoroughly enjoyed (despite the very early start) the views and the "silent" floating above the ground. Highly recommended to anyone (even if they are a little concerned about heights). (via Facebook)
