What people are saying about Gold Coast

Was a bit apprehensive at first as we are OAPs and had surgery a while ago, but the team and crew looked after us and we felt safe at all times. Safety was first class. The transportation and changeover was easy and the helicopter ride brilliant all over Surfers. Would do it again, Probably the only things that would have been better. We did not know about the discount for 2nd booking after doing a lunch cruise the day before. There were no concession for pensioners.

A brilliant well organized morning out in the balloon. Everyone was so professional and helpful and safety instructions clear and explained well. Our pilot Dhawal was so good and answered all questions with professionalism and calm. Never once felt nervous. Perfect landing. The breakfast was well organized and food excellent. Freshly cooked and well served. Would thoroughly recommend!

Booked this for my parents and they loved every moment - great surprise present. Would definitely recommend.

The helicopter ride was fantastic! The view amazing and smooth despite bad weather!

Well organised, great double trip! Highly recommend!
