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 :)

Our pilot was Jeff. He was very friendly and a funny guy. The entire process was enjoyable. We watched the balloons being inflated, floated over Napa Valley for about an hour and watched the balloon deflate after landing. The staff took great pics of us on the balloon. Brunch after the flight was amazing! Full buffet of delicious food along... More

Such an awesome experience! This had been on the bucket list and now we can remove for the first lift off! We would do this again in a heart beat. Shelly was so friendly and an amazing pilot. The crew that helped with lift off and landing were fantastic and very experienced. It's not easy holding onto a moving balloon... More
