Wonderful experience

We booked our hot air balloon experience for my partners 40th birthday. The Balloon Aloft team were very organised, safety conscious in a friendly and welcoming manner putting you at peace of mind with the confidence that we’re in experienced and reliable hands. Recommend the champagne breakfast afterwards which is a nice end to the experience. Floating at 4,000 feet watching an amazing sunrise in the company of other like minded adventures is a lifetime memory.

Thinking about Hot Air Balloon, Hop in !!

We were in Gold Coast for 3 days and thinking of doing something special. Hot air balloon made sense but then there were questions that we had to answer for ourselves: 1. Rack rate on the counter was AUD 275, can we do it cheaper? and Bookme helped. 2. Is bookme safe - yes absolutely 3. Will I do it again - yes sure 4. what other options for Hot Air Balloon - this one is a hinterland view, heard there is another one around Surfers Paradise. Check with the guy incharge and he said that is usually when there is no wind as there is a risk of going into the ocean !! so if you are reading this, best of luck make the right choice

Early morning start

Up early to our meeting place. Arrived to be put on bus to be transported to balloon. Had bathroom stop but only 1 toilet so found that a bit slack balloon experience was fantastic the view were great weather was perfect. Back on bus to pickup for breakfast would not include this in you experience as there was 1 poor girl doing everything orders coffee bringing plates had to wait 1 half hours for breakfast never again. So in all the billion experience was fantastic the other I wouldn’t do again get breakfast somewhere else
