Travel packages always talk about experiences but only some of them catch your attention straight away. A new package from Melbourne, Australia is one such package that combines hot air balloon ride with wine tastings, making the experience not only exquisite but unique. The package is just for a day but it is so utterly alluring that it will encourage travelers to fly all the way Down Under to experience the one day package.
The schedule for the day is simple. It starts with a morning hot air balloon ride over the marvelous city of Melbourne, Australia and the lush Yarra Valley, then continues on to visits to four wineries, at each of which you’ll enjoy a tasting. Just imagining the trip makes you happy. The Australian Wine Tour Co. has put this package together and they actually pay a fee to each winery it visits. Global Ballooning takes care of the hot air balloon ride.
The balloon ride starts early during the sunrise. The Georgian and Colonial architecture of Melbourne makes it an enchanting site from above. The Yarra Valley is the perfect contrast to the city and you are able to see some of the wineries that you will visit later in the day. After the exhilarating balloon ride you are taken back to the hotel for breakfast. The visit to the wineries starts at around 11 am. The service and the tasting at the wineries are excellent. The day can be personalized as per your needs and desires. The price starts at 420 Australian Dollars.
