Alison: Hi Mark,I want to tell you and the team how much I enjoyed my balloon flight on
Auckland Ann day.

The day itself was just perfect, as was the flight. If word of mouth is the best advertising –
I have been telling everyone how marvelous it was, and showing my photos.
Thank you for a great experience.

experience you gave my parents on the 20th April! Both of them enjoyed
it immensely and said it was a huge pleasure to fly with Mark! Thank
you also to Mark for signing my home made vouchers I made for them 🙂

Thank you again so much,

John and Maxine Priestly: “Just to say many thanks for the experience on 1st and really enjoyed the flight.
Lucky with weather being very clear and could see for miles. Already telling friends this is a must.
We have done other flights overseas and this was as professional and fun
Mark was informative and made everyone feel at ease
Well done and best wishes” – John and Maxine 01/05/2015

Frances Nicol: “Thank you so much for the ride on Sunday 12 Oct. Was a present to myself for my venture into the 60s!! I just felt so at home up there and so relaxed-could’ve gone on forever!!
I love plants and so enjoyed floating over the top of the gardens, bush and parks of Hamilton-and that was in the city!!
You and your team were so professional and friendly.
Many thanks and hope to catch up with you another time.

Letitia Walker: “I would like to thank Mark & Doug for their friendly service and the opportunity for this once in a lifetime experience! Doug gave such kind words before the flight to make us at ease and was just so kind to us all – such a lovely man. Mark was very knowledgeable and was such an experienced pilot that we had a ‘text book landing’ …lovely & smooth!! 7/06/2014

Redness: “I just loved having this balloon ride. Staring over the side as we took off, to see the ground fall away below. Checking out the farms below and the cows waiting patiently for us to fly past before heading on their way. Noticing the way the trees look from above. Landing a little bit bumpily and laughing at the fun of it. Sipping on a glass of bubbly while chatting about the experience with my fellow ballooners. I want to go up again – higher and faster!” 20/11/2013

John: “Awesome flight – take off was very gentle and the view wow – it would be great way to view the property market and the landing was very cool – all the better being piloted by a competent and enthusiast pilot assisted by an able support crew – after flight drinks and eats excellent! 20/10/2013, Booked with Red Balloon
