Such an unexpected experience quietly drifting over the vineyards of The Hunter Valley. Byron our pilot was so professional and knowledgeable not just about Hot Air Ballooning but also pointed out all the key landmarks. Highly recommend Balloon Aloft to those looking for a unique experience. Oh and the breakfast at Peterson's Champagne House was just superb!
