Sunrise Balloons is based in Queenstown, New Zealand, flights are scheduled daily, all year round, weather permitting. Queenstown is quite possibly the best landscape in the world to view, and it's even better during a hot air balloon ride followed by a champagne celebration.

My family, all except me, who hadn't been in a ballon before, went with Sunrise. It was quite superb, relaxed and truly spectacular. The whole operation was slick and done a very professional manner but great fun. Could rate it higher- thanks guys.

The staff was very nice and professional. I was impressed by how quickly they set the balloon up and broke it down. The views were incredible and the champagne breakfast is a nice touch.
