Experience of a lifetime on Hot Air Balloon over Napa/Solano with pilot Bob Swanson, not only was he knowledgeable and experienced, but he was very interactive, jovial and spirited. We had attempted to go hot air ballooning tice before, and they were both cancelled due to weather, but this time it happened, and boy are we grateful for it! Bob... More

And the whole experience was amazing. We were bummed that we couldn't actually fly over rate valley...but you can't control Mother Nature and they did the best they could with the uncooperative weather. Totally recommend!

The staff was extremely kind to my parents and I. Overall, I felt comfortable, safe, and had a lot of fun especially with our super friendly pilot, Bob. Definitely coming back with my friends.

We did our ride in early August. We had to launch from the valley over instead of Napa but it was still amazing. Our pilot was Kim and he was super--funny, careful, informative. Clearly he loves what he does. Floating at 2500 feet is not something we will easily forget. If you have the chance, do it!

We just returned from Napa. A highlight of the trip was our hot air balloon ride with Napa Valley Balloons. We were fortunate in that the weather was perfect. Ken was our balloonist and he was experienced, friendly and went out of his way to make it a special in every way. We met at a beautiful winery, where we... More

I'm a little slow to post this review, but better late than never. I checked Tripadvisor before leaving for our trip to Napa Valley/San Francisco to see what else was available besides "wine tasting". Found the balloon ride, and although pricey, figured we wouldn't have another chance to go in a hot air balloon, so booked it! Our "flight" was... More

We just got back from a trip to San Francisco and Napa Valley. We booked this flight for a Wednesday morning as we had spent the night on Tuesday in Napa. Unfortunately the weather did not cooperate and we could not take off. We really wanted to take a hot air balloon flight over Napa Valley so we booked another... More
