I did this balloon ride a couple months ago. It was a great trip. They are located in in the midst of rolling estates in Santa Barbara. James is a great guide, and very obviously a great pilot (He's done crazy stuff like fly over Mt Kiliminjaro, I think) The balloon ride itself was very comfortable (nicely cushioned basket) as...

There aren't any groupon deals for this company, but for the little extra cash, it's well worth the experience. Their balloon cart looked super new/clean, and was very comfortable and cushioned. Our flyer knew exactly where to to go, and pointed out some choice scenery (and when every house below you has it's own tennis court, there is much to... More

My sister and I did the hot air balloon ride and it was the perfect ending to a great trip! I am afraid of heights, but the hot air balloon ride is so gentle that I don't have any fear while on the ride. Pete, the pilot, described as a "sensation of no sensation" and he is absolutely right! It... More

This was a great adventure! The sights were spectacular, the pilot kept us informed about what to expect, told us about all we were seeing, made the flight enjoyable. I'd recommend this as a "must do" for anyone!

This was the best trip ever. They were on time, professional and concerned for all your safety. The trip was a gliding atmosphere in which it make it peaceful and quite. I have waited years to go and checked many ballooning companies and they were far the best in service and views. Thank you for a special time for my... More

We had the best time with our ride. James, the owner, took us up and pointed out all of the sights. At no time did we feel fearful or nervous. He told stories about ballooning, the history of Rancho Santa Fe, answered all sorts of questions and kept us informed of the wind conditions and how he uses altitude and... More
