It was an early start but a beautiful cool morning and misty at the same time which made for beautiful light for our photos. The tour was on time and we felt very safe watching all the safety precautions go on, Pilot Johan was funny and informative to and driver Jada made for a great bus ride there and back which was included - via Tripadvisor

What a morning, really good
Very capable team and pilot bob answered everyone's questions with great humor. Seeing the 7 balloons taking off was really good, far bigger than we expected, so smooth. - via Google

Wanted to do the hot air balloon ride for long, and we did it finally. The experience was amazing and would stay back with us for long. The pick up from our hotel was done at 3:30am, worth all the pain! Mareeba itself is a beautiful place but as soon as we saw the balloons it felt like a postcard adventure in front of us. The staffs were all experinced and very helpful. We had our 7 yr old kid with us, but the fly was absolutely amazing. No bumpy landings etc. The only concern might be the heat that blows off the balloon but that is endurable. The sceneic/ aerial view frm the top was beyond words. The sky looked serene and crimson with the first ray of the early morning sun. Had fun and definately recommended if you are at Queensland for a holiday. - via Tripadvisor

From meeting the pilots at the Mareeba Heritage Centre, picking the flight location and watching the balloons come to life and not to forget the​ thirty minute​ flight, this experience was amazing. ​The ground crew ​and the pilots ​were very professional ​and we had minimal waiting time​, this​ made it a truly beautiful ​morning.
A Beautiful Morning
We are locals and have always seen the balloons flying over in the morning and have always wanted to go up. The views were superb, especially seeing the new wind farm being built in the distance. The morning ran very smoothly and I would highly recommend this to both tourists and to locals as well.
