Amazing, absolutely amazing. The staff was very attentive and accommodating. Flying over the Vineyards with the other balloons, can not be described. Weather and flight conditions were perfect.

Such a great experience. I think everyone should try it once. It was such a smooth and peacefully ride. You don't even feel like you're 1500+ feet up. Barry was a terrific "pilot."

Amazing experience with balloons above the valley! Nice crew, super friendly ground staff. Good breakfast and brunch. Highly organized. I was afraid of being with too many people in the balloon but it was ok (about 15 people), enough space too move and enjoy the view. An experience not to be missed!

My daughter has wanted to take a ride in a hot air balloon for a few years now, so this was my "big" gift to her for her 12th birthday. She had a GREAT time on the ride, and the Balloons Above the Valley staff were great. We were so grateful that they had some alternate launch sites, since Napa... More

The balloon ride was fantastic. Even more so, was the staff. They were so nice and accommodating. Talking with them on the phone, meeting at 5:30 in the morning, the ride to our balloon launch site, the balloon ride and then the awesome champagne brunch to follow was fantastic. Compared to the other companies, it was the best deal around.... More

I have to admit, at first I was very afraid to take this flight, due to my fear of heights, but it was given to me as a 40th b-day gift (scheduled on our 6 year anniversary date) and was non-refundable (lol), so I had no choice but to go for it! Thank goodness I had no way out, as... More

My husband surprised me with a weekend trip to Napa for my birthday/Mother's Day. He wouldn't tell me what we were doing waking up at 4:30am but said I would really really like his surprise. We drove to the hotel where there were lots of people gathering. Not sure what was going on, soon I figured out we were flying... More

This was the best way to begin a new experience on your birthday. Although I was extremely exhausted from drinking so much wine for the night before, the 5am Hot Air Balloon was indeed worth losing sleep over. I'm not typically afraid of heights but for some reason, I become nervous after taking off. The take off was very smooth,... More

Our hot air balloon ride through Napa valley was breathtaking and was truly the highlight of our honeymoon in Napa. The overall organization, pick-up from our hotel, welcome/orientation, friendliness and helpfulness of the staff, friendliness and knowledge of the pilot, as well as the breathtaking views of Napa valley at sunrise from 1,500 feet…amazing! We even had a pleasant ending... More
