A spectacular way to watch sunrise over the West MacDonnell Ranges. A well organised activity including hotel pick up and drop off and a champagne breakfast (home by around 9.30am)

I booked the one hour flight but unfortunately they could not get the number and I was sorely disappointed with the 30 minutes flight. From the comments I read, this was not isolated and perhaps this company should not offer the 60 minutes if they cannot get the customers.

In saying that though, the 30 minutes was quite adequate in getting a feel for ballooning and the landscape. Not sure what the extra 30 minutes may add, but I was quite satisfied with the 30 minutes. The guides and pilot were friendly and helpful and had a cheery disposition required for this line of work.

I'd recommend the 30 minutes. As I said, better to go 30 than to risk 60 which may add nothing and disappoint when not enough people join.

We really enjoyed our dawn hot air baloon ride this morning
The whole set up from pick up to drop off was professional and friendly
The actual ride was great fun and a very gentle way to fly, even the landing was reasonably smooth
Be prepared to get a bit dusty if you decide, like all our trip did, to help pack up the baloon.
Thanks to Jerry and Marco (ground crew) and our pilot Duncan
I would thoroughly recommend this ecperience
