3 review for Limited Sales | Hunter Valley Hot Air Balloon Flight | 1 hour

  1. Breakfast and sunrise was nice

    I loved flying in the hot air balloon, it felt really nice flying above everything, the sunrise was beautiful and something I will remember.

    The breakfast was good as well.

  2. Balloon flight experience

    At first, we had to wait a little bit, but then the staff (who were really kind and knew a lot about this) told us that they were trying to find the perfect spot so that we could have the best experience for balloon flight, and it was very heartwarming. The breakfast that we had after the flight was also really good, and I recommend that you bring clothing that keeps you warm, my sister had to borrow my clothing 😂

  3. 起飛當天無理取消,且堅持不肯退款

    在前一天晚上成功check in後,起飛當天,我與另外2名老人一大清早起床,且乘坐熱氣球公司的專車到peterson集合地點。

    在到達peterson集合地點後,我們再一步填寫了準備進行起飛的表格。

    可是在乘坐另一輛熱氣球公司專車前往起飛地點途中,被熱氣球公司職員通知要取消飛行,且沒有提供任何實際或合理理由,只是不停的「Sorry guys…」。惟當天一整天沒有下雨,天朗氣清,本人至今仍摸不著頭腦到底為何要取消這活動。

    本人正與客服和熱氣球公司接洽商量退款事宜。特此紀錄發生在本人且家中2名老人的不愉快事件。在此特別保留使用法律途徑追究熱氣球公司的權利。勸喻其他有意參與這活動的遊客三思。
