This time we went over to the next valley and took flight over Santa Rosa - we got to heights of over 3000ft and had fabulous views! Our Pilot was very knowledgeable and... More

My Wife and I come to the Napa Valley every year for her birthday and we’ve often thought of doing this, this was the year! I can tell you that 6:30am is early after weekend of winetasting but it was worth it. Daniel was our pilot and I have to say he was very polite, informative and enjoys what he... More

Hot air balloon ride and breakfast in Calistoga with pilot Daniel was informative and entertaining, with spectacular views of the valley, and a bonus of seeing the geyser in action!!

This was an awesome event for us! We came thru San Francisco on motorcycles on a 2 week ride and chose to stop in Calistoga just for this! Was amazing. Daniel was our tour guide and he was GREAT! Very friendly and knowledgeable about the area. Would definitely recommend this!!

Our ground crew was friendly and professional, as was our pilot Larry who recently joined Calistoga Balloons after having flown balloons for over 5,000 hours in exciting places such as the Serengeti. He answered numerous questions and joked with us, BUT was appropriately serious re. safety instructions. We lifted off from the parking lot of the California Old Faithful Geyser... More

Please, read this review. The only thing that makes me feel a little bit better about how horrible this experience was, is the hope that maybe someone will read this review and AVOID THIS COMPANY. The occasion was my 6-year wedding anniversary and the date was 7/11/15. I booked the trip online with Adrenaline365 after reading mixed reviews on Yelp.... More
