I was surprised by my hubby on my birthday for a Balloon Ride. I only saw big huge balloons up in the air in amusement parks or pictures, but when I saw it, how the crew prepared for it, and how they started to form the big balloon, it was amazing.. I couldn't express myself more as it was something... More

Such an amazing trip. You arrive so early, you take off shortly after sunrise. There was plenty of room to take pictures and the pilot was very knowledgable.

What an incredible experience. To see Napa from such a unique perspective is a once and a lifetime opportunity. To begin your journey, you sign in at an adorable refitted train car. Then, the crew of five or so sets everything up. The pilot did an incredible job. The flight was smooth and delightful. To finish, a champagne brunch at... More

Pre-booking online was seamless & directions to the launch site & time was clear. Called in for a weather pre check then we arrived at the launch site. Fun to watch the balloon... More

We did this flight on our wedding anniversary. Loved it !!! The weather was perfect, there were 14 of us in the bucket, it's the biggest one, the most difficult to navigate. Our captain Daniel made it look so easy. He is very knowledgeable, talks about all the places we flew over. The landing was very smooth compare to another... More

My second time with Calistoga Balloons! Once a few years ago - great flight in the Napa Valley above Calistoga but kept fairly low to the ground. 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
