My girlfriend really wanted to go on her first hot air balloon ride, so like any good boyfriend I said sure baby girl. The balloons generally launch around 7am, but can be delayed due to wind or other weather conditions. You and up to 15 people get into a basket and the pilot uses flames to heat to balloon to...

Our balloon was not too packed and our guy was a wealth of knowledge. He was personable and accommodating. There was also a disabled woman on our balloon and they made sure she was properly taken care of. My only regret is that the girl who took our picture in the balloon would have done a better job so we... More

We were picked up at our Inn by Lindsey at 6:00 am, filled out some paperwork and headed to the Marriott to meet with others on our ride. Had some coffee and rolls/donuts and then a little announcement of what to expect. All were escorted into vans. Our pilot was Bob, what a great guy giving us information about flying... More

As a first timer in a hot air balloon, this was an exhilarating experience. The staff at Balloons Above the Valley were organized and professional. They picked my wife and I up at our room and drove us to the rally point. There the staff has forms to fill out and explains the before and after process. At the launch... More

Staff was professional, friendly and accommodating. They communicated efficiently when the weather did not allow us to fly on the originally scheduled day. They were exactly on time with the shuttle to take us to the staging area at the hotel on the day we did fly. Our pilot was Jake whom we had already heard great reviews of. We... More

Yes the balloon ride was spectacular! Why wouldn't it be. But what sets this company far above the rest is the amazing staff. So friendly, so professional and accommodating. From our pick up person (we left from the lobby of the Westin), to our driver and our pilot Scott and absolutely everyone was such a delight. This team seems to... More

Spent 17 days in California last month and this was the highlight of my entire trip. A balloon ride was on my bucket list and I was very excited to do this. The whole trip was very well organised. Lovely pastries and coffee before we headed off. We had prime end of basket spots! The weather was perfect. I had... More

This was simply an amzing experience, when you get up there you are just breathless. I can recommend this for everyone and it's worth every penny. The company gives great information and the brunch afterwards is nice as well.
