After we were in the van in our way to the launching site, we were told that because of the wind and for security, the flight would be in Yolo. I think they should have said that before, so we could decide if we still wanted to do the ride. It took about 40 minutes to get there. We missed... More

We were stoked about this balloon ride. Our ride came complete with a terrifically clear view all the way to San Fran and some close up vineyard shots. Despite some landing hiccups, it was a great experience. I'd do it again in a minute. Cherrie deserves a hug and kudos for keeping us up upright.

Everyone involved in this experience were amazing and we had the time of our lives. The Balloon ride was amazing, and the Champaign Brunch at the end was a perfect send off. Check another item off the Bucket List

I've had by far the most amazing experience! Russ was an amazing pilot and his landing was amazing. The views are breathtaking. Everyone's service was amazing. I'm on a vacation so waking up early was not a problem. The experience was worth it. Thankfully we were able to fly over Napa! Great weather!

Always wanted to do a balloon ride and took advantage of going on this one while vacationing with my wife in Napa. Balloon's Over the Valley was an excellent experience. Warm friendly people, awesome views and a lot of fun. We did the early morning sunrise ride followed by a champagne breakfast. We were part of a group of twenty... More

I really enjoyed our ride. It was very smooth and the view was breathtaking. I sunrise was spectacular with the view of the balloons in the background. I did not expect that the ride will be so smooth. It was an amazing experience. I find it really peaceful up there... We started with coffee and pastries, the scone was nice... More

I really enjoyed our flight on 6/28/15 with Chelle. She was friendly enough, and the rest of the staff was great. We especially liked the man with red hair/beard and backwards baseball cap, but I never got his name. He was very nice and really made us feel welcome. Will recommend! :)
