  • ”Went for a flight on the hot air balloon at the gold coast, I booked with Balloon Aloft as my sister had booked with them before and said they were excellent. The staff were so nice. Bill the bus driver was very friendly and helpful and he picked us up right on time at our hotel. I told Bill I was a bit nervous but he made me feel very relaxed. We all drove for a while and “launched” at sunrise. The pilot Dean was very informative and made the flight very enjoyable and the views were incredibly amazing. I thoroughly recommend this company for their courtesy and personal touches. I have just started my bucket list and this is my first tick. More ticks to come!”

  • “Amazing experience of a lifetime….drifting lazily across the dawn sky over the Gold Coast rural and mountain hinterland is an experience not to be missed! Safety first is Balloons Aloft’s first priority and the crew are experienced friendly and the fact that they live and breathe hot air ballooning is so very evident! The sense of peace and serenity I felt will be with me as a lasting reminder of this time spent suspended above the earth.”

  • “I received a gift certificate from my wonderful kids and thoroughly enjoyed the exciting adventure. The crew, I remember Bill he was hilarious and there was Reece and the pilot Chris was very professional he made it look so easy. They worked together as a well-oiled team to make a memorable experience and one I will never forget even though I dread getting up before the sun. It really was just like floating you could almost touch the clouds. Breakfast at the hotel was delicious and my champagne glass was topped up way too much (lol) A fantastic morning so well done everyone and thanks to my daughters Alana Kia and India xxx”
