An amazing experience! After 3 re bookings due to weather, we finally had the most incredible flight. We were lucky enough to be blessed with an incredible morning. Very professional and informative. Justin and his team are wonderful in how they run their sessions. Breakfast afterwards was fantastic!
Absolutely would not recommend. My partner and I were very upset and disappointed with the entire experience provided by Justin. He was completely unprofessional in all communications. He did not attempt to accommodate us at all and everything to him was inconvenient.
Our original flight was cancelled due to weather which we knew was likely and accepted that. However when we asked if we could reschedule for the following day as the weather forecast was perfect he denied. He abruptly told us that this would not be feasible due to not having enough people to go on the flight even though our amount complied with the minimum stated on his website. The owner then asked us for proof via email which we provided. To which he ignored our email and changed his website. A few hours later sending us a text to meet the next morning as weather forecast was still good.
We arrived at the office of the rescheduled morning to the most hostile and uncomfortable atmosphere. I have never felt so unwelcome and uncomfortable. The owners sat at the desk and did not say a word. My partner and myself introduced ourselves and made small talk to which we received one word blunt answers. In the end they drove us 2 minutes up the road, tested a ballon and said they were going to cancel. We asked if we would try another location or drive further and test another area as stated on the website however were denied. We feel like they had no intentions of taking us and we are completely disappointed and screwed around.
I can’t believe how unprofessional this company was with this whole experience.... See MoreSee Less
What a fabulous way to start our 40th Wedding Anniversary on ANZAC Day. Perfect morning, perfect weather, perfect flight, perfect breakfast. Thanks to Justin and his crew - I would certainly recommend this experience to ANYONE. Only problem is I want to do it again.... See MoreSee Less
Amazing morning with Justin and John. What a great way to celebrate Sally's birthday! Above and beyond with a birthday cake to follow a fantastic breakfast (Thanks Mrs Justin) ! 😁 A real bucket list experience. Absolutely recommended... See MoreSee Less
We went up on March 26th 2019 and experienced that amazing sunrise in the photo. It was a perfect morning and the view was amazing. However, just as importantly, our guides were first and foremost all about safety. We went to 3 sites before they were satisfied that the conditions were optimum, and they spent time making sure that we were fully aware of how to remain safe on our flight. Thank you for providing such a wonderful experience. I would do it again any day!... See MoreSee Less

Great morning, up at 4am and 1000 feet in the air by 5.30am for a graceful trip across the Barossa countryside for just over an hour and then a well placed landing at Greenock then back to base for a cooked breakfast. Great start to the day and it’s only 9.30am so a full day to go wine tasting. 😊😊😊😊😊😊 Happy days. Thanks to my darling Karen for my birthday present and one off her bucket list.... See MoreSee Less

What an awesome experience!! Yes it was a very early start, 4.15am 😩, but so worth it. Justin and his father John were great hosts and had us up in the air in no time at all. Even the cows helped out 😂 We got to see the beautiful Barossa vineyards and the sunrise was divine. We got a full hour in the air, unlike the other ballon that took off after us but landed within minutes of us in the same field. Thank you again from the both of us!!... See MoreSee Less

Thanks Justin and John for a fabulous, unique view of the Barossa. Heights can be a little daunting for me, but it was such a gentle lift-off, ride and landing, and the scenery so amazing that there was no time to even think about it! A wonderful Christmas gift experience that I can now happily recommend to family, friends and clients.... See MoreSee Less
My husband and I were given a Barossa Balloon adventure as a wedding present and it turned out to be one of our favourites! Justin, John and the team were friendly and professional and we felt like we were in very safe hands from the start. An early start but definitely worth it for the views, the experience and the delicious breakfast.... See MoreSee Less
After over 2 years of booking and re-booking my flight, due to weather condition not allowing the bookings to go ahead, I was finally able to fly up, up and away! What an experience! Justin and his crew showed the upmost professionalism and made the experience just that little bit better! Thank you all so very much!... See MoreSee Less
Just want to thank Justin and the awesome team for an unforgettable experience. We ended up in Blanchetown and was just so much better than i could imagine!

This was an incredible experience!....both beautifully peaceful, and super exciting all at the same time! We were inclusively involved with the set up and pack up of the balloon, which was both fun and informative. Justin and his crew’s knowledge and experience was clearly evident, which simply allowed us to enjoy the ride!... See MoreSee Less
It was an unforgettable once in a lifetime experience! We've got a chance to see how the balloon is being set up and experienced the magic of early morning sunrise. Stunning views above the Barossa Valley, positive attitude of a pilot and his assistant, delicious breakfast - we loved every minute of it. Totally recommend this romantic adventure 😀... See MoreSee Less
Such a great experience. Not something I thought I would ever do but having done it, would do it again. The early start added to the experience and with a full group of fellow balloonists ready to fly, it was such a fun morning. Justin and his support crew (brother, sister etc) were fantastic with Justins wit playing a huge part in making everyone feel relaxed. The flight itself was fabulous. Great views of the Barrossa in a quiet atmosphere where no sounds could be heard. Incredible experience. Well done Barrossa Balloon Adventures.... See MoreSee Less
I booked this adventure to do with my daughter who is autistic and non-verbal for her birthday. It was absolutely spectacular! Justin and his crew were all very professional, knowledgeable, kind, and helpful. Additionally, the full breakfast following our flight was absolutely scrumptious! Thank you for putting a huge smile on my daughter's face and for making this birthday extra special! I highly recommend this company if you are looking for a balloon adventure.... See MoreSee Less
We recently booked Barossa Balloon Adventures for a corporate event and cannot speak highly enough of them. They were very helpful and accommodating and made our guests feel like VIP's. Everyone enjoyed the trip (even those that were a little hesitant at first) and raved about the breakfast at the base afterwards. A huge thank you to Justin and his team - will definitely book Barossa Balloon Adventures again for future corporate events.... See MoreSee Less
Justin and crew put on a fantastic time for everyone who attended. They kept things light and friendly throughout, but also maintained a very professional approach. The flight itself was wonderful, and safe to the point that we completely forgot we were flying 100m+ above the ground the whole time. A great morning followed up by a breakfast containing the best bacon I have ever had. Highly recommend for everyone.... See MoreSee Less
there have been few moments in my life where my breath has been taken away... flying out over the Murray River at sunrise with the cliffs ahead of us and a vineyard underneath, was truly incredible and one of those moments. Really impressed with the Barossa Balloon Adventures team and the perfect landing they achieved on our decent - I was expecting a bit of a bump on landing, but we glided in and came to a gentle stop!... See MoreSee Less
4am start was worth the effort. Went for my husband's 60th bday and another tick on the bucket list. We flew both low and high above the Murray river. On board we had a young couple.. who got engaged. Barossa balloon put up the will you marry me banner on the ground in advance and after she read it we had the young man down on one knee in the basket. And she said yes � . Great breakfast to finish off a wonderful experience. 5 stars all the way.... See MoreSee Less
This was a gift for my 40th birthday as I wanted memories and experiences and this certainly didn’t disappoint! A beautifully run family business who have taken care of every little detail to make this an experience one to always remember.... See MoreSee Less
A fantastic experience led by a fantastic team. The balloon ride was smooth and the landing was very well executed. This was a 30th birthday present and I thoroughly enjoyed every minute of it. The team made sure everyone was safe and comfortable at all times. I also really enjoyed the breakfast, and chocolate cake after the ride. I would highly recommend this company if you ever consider a balloon ride over the Barossa.... See MoreSee Less
Highly recommend Barossa Balloon Adventures.. The early and cold start was well worth it.. the flight was so peaceful, the views amazing.. even had a young man propose during the flight (with assistance from Justin & his crew) The champagne breakfast was a great way to end our adventure. Justin & his crew were professional & friendly... at no stage did I feel anxious. Thanks Barossa Balloon Adventures!... See MoreSee Less
Justin and the crew made our engagement present an amazing morning in the air, and something we'll remember forever.
We had a full group and shared the balloon with 14 other people - it was great, we had such a lovely group of fun people who were all celebrating special occasions.
Nothing to be scared about, the trip was smooth and surprisingly not too high - I'm so glad I didn't chicken out. Even the landing was perfectly calm and smooth.
We enjoyed a lovely brekky and birthday cake after the event - Justin and the team make the experience so lovely, personal and you leave feeling like one of the family. 10/10 recommend, and well worth the ridiculously early start 🙂... See MoreSee Less
The most beautiful flight over the river Murray. With perfect weather and an excellent host/pilot (Justin) it couldn't get any better. Everything was so well presented and taken care of. This flight was my 70th birthday present. It was the best ever present. The memories will be long lasting.... See MoreSee Less
My wife & I booked up to go hot air ballooning with The "Barossa Balloon Adventures" and we were not disappointed, the day started early at 04:45, with meeting all our fellow budding Balloonatics and meeting Justin and his band of merry men, conditions weren't perfect for taking off from the Barossa so we drove to Blanchetown on the river Murray, we all helped to prepare the Balloon and of course some instructions on how to board the basket, and what to do and what not to do. The take off and the flight exceeded all expectations, and we floated through the air like an Autumn leaf thru the breeze. An hour in the air and then a beautiful soft gentle landing. Then back to base for a gourmet breakfast of local fare, with Tea, Coffee, Juice and Chapaagne, we were even serenaded by Justin (the pilot) on his guitar, We will be back one day.... See MoreSee Less
Would like to say a massive thanks to all the crew, you all are an amazing group and made the ballooning experience so great. I will definitely recommend your company to everyone. If anyone is hesitant don't be, i'm terrified of heights but it's such a nice smooth flight. It didn't even bother me. Thanks again and will definitely be rebooking at some stage.... See MoreSee Less
So today I got surprised for my birthday and it was to go on this amazing balloon adventure. At the start I was scared as it was my first time but it was amazing, so peaceful and was just like floating in the sky. Our pilot Justin was so lovely as were all his crew, would highly recommend to all and we will see you again soon. Cant wait for another adventure.... See MoreSee Less
A fantastic experience highly recommended. Justin and his crew provide a fantastic experience from the flight to the superb breakfast. Worth every dollar. My second flight but sure not to be my last 👍... See MoreSee Less
I just loved it. The whole experience was really amazing, floating along over the beautiful Barossa Valley. I thought I might be too old at almost 70 to get in and out of the balloon but no trouble. And they were patient, even though my husband and I took a wrong turn in Gawler and got a bit lost and a little bit late.... See MoreSee Less
Very professional, yet friendly outfit. Justin, our dry-witted pilot, kept us well informed and amused throughout the whole adventure. Just the most peaceful, serene experience over the river environs at Blanchetown and aptly finished with a delicious champagne breakfast. Highly recommended 🙂... See MoreSee Less
My second time flying with Barossa Balloon Adventures and still awesome. Went with my bestie this time who had not flown this way before and met all of our expectations. First time I flew was over the Barossa, this time was at Blanchtown due to the weather conditions being more favourable at this location. Well looked after, great crew and organisation. Nothing beats a Hot Air Balloon experience. Thanks Justin and crew, a morning that my friend and I will not forget 🙂... See MoreSee Less
Organised to take my father for a balloon adventure for his 70th. To say he was crapping bricks is an understatement. However Justin and his crew facilitated a great safe morning. The take off and landing were text book.The breakfast advertised to be Langmeils was at the home base. It was still good.... See MoreSee Less
Everything about my Balloon 🎈adventure was absolutely brilliant from start to finish all who celebrated my 50th with me say the same best day ever!!! What a wonderful experience the host was fantastic along with food wine and a special Thankyou to his wife who cooked me a yummy birthday cake all the crew including guests made this such a memorable day Yes was early start and a bit nippy but watching the sun ☀️ come up Over the Barossa was so worth.

We went ballooning with this company this time last year for my mothers 50th birthday, and it was absolutely amazing!! The dude who took us up in the balloon landed like a pro (we didn't tip over) and he had a cake with candles for my mum when we were finished, along with a cheese tray, breakfast, coffee, tea and bubbles! The host was a hoot and he made the experience unforgettable.... See MoreSee Less

Barossa and light cab service, Barossa's only 100% locally owned and operated cab/taxi sevice recommend on a very regular basis. We think that ballooning over the barossa is one of the best things to do in the region!

Well, this was certainly the best way to finish our honeymoon on a "high"!
Justin and his Dad were fantastic and put on a great champagne brekky at the end of the flight and were very informative on ballooning and the region and were easy to chat with and spend the morning with.
BUT... the flight!! It was such an amazing feeling to be floating above the beautiful Barossa region. We had a cloudy morning which unfortunately didn't lend itself to a spekky sunrise, but it did mean we were able to do something much more special - go above the clouds! The quiet early morning, blue skies, a blanket of white, a bright shining sun and the balloon's shadow framed by a rainbow ring - just spectacular!
THANK YOU Barossa Balloon Adventures for such a memorable end to our honeymoon.
Wow... what an amazing day we had ballooning over the River Murray. Thank you to Justin and the team for a great time and fabulous breakfast. It was well worth the early start�. If you havent experienced ballooning just give Barossa balloon adventures a call...highly recommended... See MoreSee Less
What an experience, it was, ballooning over the Barrosa Valley today, watching, the sunrise. Finishing off with a champagne breakfast. The weather was perfect and the views were breathtaking. It was a birthday gift from my son and Justin and his crew were amazing, they even surprised me, with a birthday cake and everybody, sang happy birthday to me. It's the little things in life, that people, do, that puts a smile on your face. Thankyou Justin for making this a really memorable day for Colin & myself and a special thankyou to Justin's wife for the lovely breakfast and birthday cake. You truly are genuine people, with a big heart.... See MoreSee Less
Perfect day Ballooning over Blanchetown this morning. Amazing experience with a professional team. Justin was a great pilot and landed the basket with precision and expertise.

Having missed the chance to fly in a hot air balloon over the numerous temples in Bagan, Myanmar, I researched on hot air balloon rides before leaving for Australia. I booked the Hot Air Balloon Ride in Barossa Valley via Viator. When the date was up, I readied myself for the 515am pick up. Yes, 515am. After signing waivers at the assembly area, we drove to a parking lot where Justin inflated a small balloon and released it into the air. I wondered what that was for. John, his father explained that it would help determine the take-off point for our flight. Justin was not happy with the direction that the small balloon had taken so we moved to a better spot. We would fly over the Murray River. We had a fun, interactive moment, helping lay out the huge balloon to inflate it. We boarded the wicker basket and off we flew. It was a wonderful experience... It is so peaceful up in the air. We flew over fields, the river, passing by small boats and kayaks peacefully passing on the river. We also spotted an albino kangaroo, and flights of birds in beautiful formation. When the hour was up, we landed very calmly on a farm. Because the weather was good, there was no turbulence, nothing to get nervy about. We moved from the farm to a park where a lovely buffet of breakfast food was assembled. We began with perfectly chilled white wine, flavored muffins (?), sausages, fruits, warm bread, coffee. I loved this part of the day. Would I do it again? Of course I would. Seeing how Justin was very cautious during the entire adventure brought great comfort. Cheers to Justin, John and Caroline!... See MoreSee Less
Was a bit unsure about this experience but once you are airborne it was just fantastic. With 360 degree views you don't even think about where or how high you are. Cannot give enough praise to Justin and his team at Barossa Valley Balloon Adventures. Can't beat their expertise professionalism & friendliness - Wayne & Di Seeman... See MoreSee Less
This experience was definitely a wow factor. Justin and the crew were extremely friendly and professional. We had a beautiful homemade breakfast at the vineyard after the ballooning adventure. I would highly recommend this experience. It was the highlight of my trip.... See MoreSee Less
