Best ballooning experience. Staff were very considerate, knowledgeable and attentive. Location was perfect and to hear that they give back to the property owners whose land they use is a bonus.

The use of properties that we launch and land on is a privilege that we value and being able to give back is a small way to show our appreciation. The Beyond Ballooning team have many skills and talents that we utilise to build and repair access roads, fences gates along with assisting with maintenance and repairs of farming equipment and infrastructure. Thank you for taking the time to leave such a wonderful review about your experience and the team, your time is appreciated and valued. Thank you for supporting a family-owned Hunter Valley business and for the recommendation to fly with Beyond Ballooning

Our balloon ride was brilliant, it was a Birthday present for me and it was spectacular. The team couldn't be any better, it was so much fun. A very professional run business. It was an early start but well worth it. The day was perfect, everything was explained to us and we felt very comfortable with the effort the team put in. Not only did we have a terrific adventure but they provided amazing photos and it was finished off with a lovely champagne breakfast at the Crowne Plaza.

A remarkably enjoyable experience with highly professional and organised people. Never done this before; will absolutely do it again. A whole lot of fun. Great opportunity for 'different' aerial photography. Bring a spare battery! Surprising quiet, calm and gentle in the balloon (apart from the occasional roar of the burner). Dress warmly in winter. Boots a good idea when you walk to and from the landing sites across cow paddocks. You have to climb into the basket - so not for young children or the 'infirm'.

Beyond Ballooning are thrilled you enjoyed your ballooning experience. The photo opportunities are endless and we love that this part of the morning was a highlight. Winter in the Hunter Valley is cold however the views are stunning and well worth the early start. Thank you for supporting a family-owned Hunter Valley business, the compliments and the 5 Bubble review, they are all valued and appreciated
