We were really looking forward to our hot air balloon ride over the MacDonnell Ranges. The balloon was so overcrowded that we could not move an inch. It was so hard to turn around to see the sunrise if you were on the other side of the balloon. The staff were very lovely and entertaining and the champagne breakfast was nice. However, we were expected to help pack up the air balloon after we paid $279 per person I don't think we should have been obligated to pack up the balloon which caused us to get absolutely filthy. After doing this we were covered in dirt and bindis. I think they shouldn't overcrowd the balloon as this impacted on everyone's experience. The balloon only went about 20-30m high which was disappointing as we thought we would go above the clouds however this was out of their control due to the weather conditions.
