We did this as a treat for ourselves and it was good fun. It's pricey and almost worth the money. The views over Melbourne on the day we went up were pretty stunning. The floating about part is pretty surreal and it feels like you've...More

Took my 11 year-old up with me and we loved floating through the air over Melbourne, picking out familiar landmarks. Everything was well organised and professional and our pilot provided clear instructions. One of the best birthday presents I ever had.
