We did the hour balloon � flight this morning on our honeymoon in port Douglas and what can I say this was always on my bucket list of things to do and it was incredible. Didn't care we had to get up early and our guide Jada she was incredible and I think she deserves a breakfast on Hot Air Balloon Cairns @ Nunu's Palm Cove. We had breakfast there and the lady was lovely and the food to die for we loved it cannot thank you enough best decision made keep it up great lovely friendly balloon team (via Facebook).

It was the BEST service, and I wish I could rate the experience higher than 5 stars. Alex was our driver and he was outstanding! He let us stop at all the viewing points along our drive, was super attentive, and gave all up amazing customer service.

The flights were beautiful, with an exciting landing on our second trip. If you are going to book, do both half hour flights, from the early morning booking at 4am as it is really worth if for the view.

I would recommend Hot Air Balloon Cairns to anyone. It was by far my favourite experience from our trip to Port Douglas and the next time I am in the area I will be booking with them again.

It was memorable and excited experienced which definitely one of the must do list in my life, very secure and luckily we went for a good weather, the balloon going up to 3800 ft that you can enjoy the bird eyes views of farm fields in Mareeba , the basket space is fair enough , if the package including some music and champagne would be wonderful, the spectacular views still dip deep in my mind, gorgeous !!!

I would say that the organisation of the flight from booking to retrieval was faultless and efficient in every aspect.
A huge thanks to the professional crew and pilot for such a wonderful ballooning experience. We all had such a great time, more than what we would ever expected.
Highly Recommended!

Myself, my husband and two friends booked a hot air balloon trip whilst visiting Port Douglas. We were picked up at our hotel and taken to the Atherton tablelands where we met the rest of our group. We then took our flight along with two other hot air balloons. We all had a fantastic time. I’ve never experienced this before and was a little apprehensive before hand but so glad I did it. Would highly recommend both this experience and company.
