This is a must do in Cairns – I absolutely just loved the gorgeous views!

– Eliza FIt was an early start at 4.15am and I felt there was a bit of time wasted standing around in preperation. Seemed as though the flight was only 20 minutes and not the 30 as advertised. I guess weather conditions contributed to this but I felt a little hard done by. It was also disappointing that we had to pack up with the organisersm, which I wasn’t prepared for.

The champagne breakfast, however was great and made up for some my disapointment.

– GrantWe had a great time!!

– GlennThe flight was awesome and I found the crew to be alot of fun. Definately one of the best things I’ve ever done!

– melGotta say this tour is worth the price… watching the balloons getting inflated at dawn and then gently floating above the beautiful Atherton tablelands. Brilliant!
