WONDERFUL! The staff was amazing and made this trip so easy, no fear whatsoever and we had 1 in our group afraid of heights and they said it wasn't the least bit scary. Our pilot Barry, was absolutely fabulous. He is very experienced and will answer any questions. He may even sing a song or two. He is an excellent... More

Wonderful experience. Unfortunately weather caused us to reschedule the flight but the staff was prepared and quickly helped us do so. The day of the flight was planned like clockwork and we felt well taken care of from start to finish. Russ, the our pilot on the balloon "Spirit" was courteous, professional and fun. Truly the BEST way to see... More

The staff at BATV (their acronym) was incredibly kind and helpful and made our experience one to remember from the time I started with reservations through the balloon ride and brunch afterwards. The staff was incredibly professional at all times and we felt very safe. The ride was breathtaking. The basket could hold a maximum of 24 people (all standing)... More

My husband and I had the best time during our balloon ride. I was a little nervous going into it but our pilot, though he was young, immediately put me at ease. The views were breathtaking and the ride and landing were smooth! It was such a peaceful way to experience Napa for the first time. After the amazing ride,... More

This was our first experience on a hot air balloon. At dawn we were picked up from our hotel and taken to Yalo County airport. We were afloat for an hour and twenty minutes over Winters area in of sunflower fields in California near Napa Valley. Napa Valley had some low level fog that morning so they diverted balloon launches... More

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!
