Highly recommend! We had a groupon and brought our 7 year old son. The views for sunset are stunning. Staff was very professional, informative and made sure we all kept safe. We had a fantastic time!

I've read a lot of the reviews for these guys so I was a bit nervous of what to expect when it came time to book. To sum up what all the one-star raters say is basically this; if you buy a groupon for this, you'll get treated second-rate, the person operating the phone doesn't is non-responsive, and when he...

Daughter bought tickets for my birthday and I was excited until I tried to make reservations! They were TERRIBLE, kept complaining the are losing money on this groupon deal and even said they would return my money for complaining! NASTY!! Then I found out their balloons had patches on it. I cancelled, complained to groupon and went on with a... More

Absolute worst customer service experience of my life. After being told over the phone a few days ago that we would get a call if it was cancelled, we drove up to del Mar today without a phone call and learned it wasn't flying. Totally understandable considering the fires in North County, however, I do not appreciate to be 1)... More

Seriously, people need to read the reviews on the customer service from Jaime. I really don't understand how he is still working there. He Harasses your phone and keeps calling first on his regular phone, and if you don't pick up he'll keep calling you on restricted and not leave any voicemails, just keeps calling your phone. Someone needs to... More

I've experienced some bad customer service in my life but this was definitely the worst. A friend and I had booked an evening balloon flight and were planning on using Groupon. Jamie was unpleasant from the first conversation but I could looked past that-- we were just excited for a new adventure. We made the reservation and showed up at... More

BEWARE GROUPON USERS. Panorama openly admits to prioritizing regular customers over groupon users. I purchased a flight for 2 during our anniversary weekend in San Diego. I called and called trying to get a reservation and every single time he would give me a run around about weather or some other excuse. When friday rolled around and I absolutely had... More

The owner of Panorama Balloon Tours had me check back repeatedly to catch him when he was sending a balloon out. I was ok with that, I'm a flexible girl. He was extremely hard to get a hold of and somewhat unresponsive. Again, no worries. We're busy. I get it. We finally find a day that the weather is right... More
