My Sister and I shared a hot air balloon ride. We both loved the feel of floating and looking down as the day awoke onto the beautiful scenery below us. We felt safe and free as birds! A tick on our "bucket lists".

Best balloon experience. Highly recommended. Excellent for all ages. Very professional staff. Very nice and tasty breakfast. We have done three balloon rides in the Hunter and this was by far the best overall experience.
