I wasn't keen on going up in a hot air balloon. I resisted for years. But this year I relented. I'm so glad that I did! Kim and crew were great. Not much I can add that hasn't already been said -- over and over again -- this is a first-class company that strives to provide a fun, safe experience.... More

As another reviewer has written, I found this a bit of a bait and switch. We took a balloon ride on July 10th and arrived promptly or a bit early for our expected arrival at 5:30AM. Yes, plainly early but we knew about that part well in advance. The issue that I have with them is that they knew that... More

Our sons surprised me with a Napa Valley Balloon ride for my birthday, and it was a memorable, wonderful gift! Our balloon pilot was Kim and he was great, but I believe each of this company's pilots are highly experienced and very professional. The operation ran like clock work and the flight was simply spectacular. I didn't even have a... More

If you are in Napa Valley - splurge and take a hot air balloon ride! I would highly recommend this company as they really have it down pat! You have to arrive super early - 5:30 am, but that is the best time before the winds pick up and you are up in the air while the sun is coming... More

You pull into Domain Chandon and there are signs everywhere guiding you to where to check in. Then you are greeted and offered coffee, fresh orange juice and danishes. A short briefing meeting and then you are organized into mini vans and brought to your waiting balloon. Everything was like clock work! Our helmsman was Kim, he guided our balloon... More

My fiance and I were on a first time trip to Napa and we stumbled across this online when looking for a wine tour to do - I couldn't be happier we did. Neither of us had been on a balloon ride before, and what better place to do it than wine country? It's an early start, but they are... More

This was on my bucket list and coming to San Francisco for the pride this year made it possible for me. I went with my friend and drove from downtown SF to Napa Valley, which was approximately an hour away. This is a must do for if you're travelling around the area. The flight was breathtaking! Also, I believe we... More

When planning our 10th anniversary trip, I asked my wife if she was willing to get up early one morning of our trip for a surprise. She reluctantly agreed. I gave her decoys by hinting at sunrise horseback riding, and exploring the "grape caves where they prepare the seeds", as well as others. When we turned the corner into the... More

If you’ve never taken a hot air balloon ride then you need to do so and Napa Valley Balloons is probably as adequate a choice as any other provider. However, lower your expectations accordingly: do not expect the entire process to be ideal or you will be very disappointed. The flight itself is serene, relaxing, exhilarating and hardly scary.
