We did the breakfast sunrise balloon ride and I've never done anything more beautiful. Watching the sunrise in Napa Valley in a hot air balloon is absolutely magical. Dew covers the ground below and there is a peacefulness and stillness with the sound of the balloon making their way through the valley. Below you swoop over vineyard and beautiful houses... More

We booked the balloon experience by phone the day before and received an email confirming it. Strangely we were asked to phone again before 1700 to reconfirm - Lots of confirming so this part of the process could be streamlined We met at the Marriot hotel at 0700 and were treated to coffee and pastries. Unfortunately it was foggy over... More

I can't even begin to recommend these guys enough! All the staff was friendly and knowledgeable, and made safety their first priority. But they also knew how to make it fun! Our pilot was great as well. And when the winds weren’t on our side and made landing a bit challenging, she was able to take us down safely on... More

We got up at an ungodly hour and met at the balloon, however it was worth it all!! Our pilot was very experienced and knowledgeable. He took us on an amazing flight and the views were just incredible. Afterwards, we went back to the Marriott and had a wonderful champagne brunch. This was a fabulous excursion on a long weekend...

A little early to get up but sooooo worth it! Met at the Marriott hotel at 6:30am for coffee and pastries. Briefing followed by van loading by balloon pilot groups. 3 Balloons that morning and about 36 people. Very well organized and pilot Jeff expertly showed us around the currents going as high as 2500 ft and drifting here and... More

I really liked the way the tour operator handled this. Throughout the process we felt completely safe. It was very clear that we had a very experience pilot. I am not crazy about heights to begin with. The weather was a little fickle the morning we did this, they kept us in the loop the whole time. The whole experience... More

I'm so glad we did this in the Napa Valley. The entire experience was amazing. We felt very safe after the first few minutes once we got accustomed to the basket. The views were fantastic and the service from the time we booked to the day was great. Our original flight date was cancelled due to bad weather but we... More

This was on my bucket list and my wife surprised me for my birthday. It was nothing less than fantasic. From the moment you get to the hotel for the first briefing with the coffee, sweet rolls, and muffins, to the ride out to watch the inflation, the balloon ride itself, and the brunch afterwards, it was all top notch....

The customer service was awesome!! The experience was even more awesome! The brunch following the flight was very good. They actually had more then just muffins and fruit. They went all out! and they were not stingy with the champagne :)
