Had an amazing morning ... it was very relaxing and i felt very safe (i have an extreme fear of heights) ... it was very beautiful coasting around the wineries and is definitely an experience everyone needs to try ... our landing was one of a kind which is exactly what we wanted - just remember i saved your very expensive balloon from star pickets - i put my life on the line for your balloon hehehehehe ... thank you so much for a great experience and we had a wonderful time - Dan & Kylie
Balloon ride was absolutely breathtaking, beautiful morning and great company. Darren was fantastic with his knowledge of the area and made me feel very safe.- great guy. We own a Hunter Valley Motel and haven't hesitated recommending him to any of our guests.Thankyou for a lovely experience.
It was a nice morning with a little bit of rain we didnt think that we would take off but we did, we missed all the rain had great time with a fanastic crew ,it was great fun thankyou to everyone.
Hi Daren, thanks so much for an unforgettable experience and a truly memorable day. It was well worth getting up early to enjoy the wonderful morning drifting above the hunter valley in absolute peace. We felt perfectly safe in your capable hands! We had chosen your company because we wanted to travel in a small group rather than jammed into a bus-like basket as offered by others and can only recommend your company to everyone who wants a real special balloon flight. Your great sense of humour was a bonus that brightened up the flight for everyone. Personal service makes all the difference!
I wanted to thank both you and Bob for a really outstanding morning. Your fun, competence and positive energy gave the whole experience such a great feel and we loved it. We are already talking about how fun it would be to have a group of 10 friends having a ride together! Thanks again, Claudia.
First Time Hot Air Balloon ride ever, terrified of heights, the pilot is a comedian and a sweet guy makes you feel totally safe and at ease, my experience was nothing short of totally awesome, would highly recommend for anyone who wants to conquer their fear of heights and have a terrific experience.
Thanks for an awesome day. Joe
We had a fantastic flight, professional, well organised and great value. Would definitely recommend.
What a great experience, have seen the Hunter Valley many times but your ride in the balloon and the experience Daren shows in controlling the balloon and his comments certainly makes it a very worthwhile venture. The professionalism shown by this company proves that they are local and love what they do and what they can do to give others a great time. Highly recommended.
What a way to start the day! Even preparing the balloon for flight is fun. Then to glide over the Hunter as the sun rises and the animals below are waking is quite special. Thanks Daren for a great time.
Just wanted to let everyone know that Darren from Wine Country Ballooning was fantastic, very friendly & funny, he provided the perfect atmosphere. The balloon ride was absolutely unforgettable, it was a great morning & an experience that will be hard to top. Thank-you!
WOW!!!Thank you so much for the wonderful opportunity of a lifetime, it was awesome. Have not stopped raving about it. Great pilot, great views, great staff, highly recommend Wine Country Ballooning.
Just ticked another one off the bucket list, what an amazing morning !! Weather was perfect and the view amazing, can't believe how beautiful the Hunter Valley looks from the air. Thanks so much for giving me the opportunity to fly with you Daren, couldn't think of a better place to have my first Hot Air Balloon experience. Look forward to doing it again sometime soon !!

Wonderful flight Daren, every one should do this at least once in a lifetime, the weather was perfect as was the company, will pass it on to others.
