    Right from booking online through to being dropped back at our hotel after the balloon ride and breakfast - this experience was excellent. All staff were great and kept us very well informed from start to finish. Our pilot was also very friendly and very knowledgeable. The views were amazing and the landing was faultless. We were spoiled with champagne breakfast at the O'Reilly's vineyard. What a lovely place and staff were lovely. The food was great, everything from tea/coffee/juice, cereal, croissants with butter and jam then the hot meal was served with sausages, baked beans, hash browns, scrambled egg and more. It really hit the spot and finished off an absolutely perfect experience. (via Trip Advisor)
