Very smooth, professionally run outfit. They want their guests to have fun but they don't sacrifice safety. We enjoyed a picture perfect morning flight over Napa Valley before enjoying the buffet breakfast. Ken handled a difficult landing, with wind and a "rogue" tree making life harder than normal, with calmness and skill, and managed a very smooth landing, with the... More

Our party of 10 booked a private balloon flight over Napa on the last full day of our trip. There are no words to describe the elation that all 10 of us felt. It was the first time in our 5 day trip that there was a quiet moment among us! The ride was so peaceful yet exhilarating! The views... More

My husband and I chose this company for a balloon ride over Napa Valley during our recent anniversary trip. It was an amazing experience! This company takes good care of you and makes the experience extra special with the champagne brunch following the ride. Every employee we encountered was friendly and helpful, and big kudos especially to our most excellent... More

I booked this event as our first event for the week and everyone was thrilled with it. The weather was PERFECT and the guide was AMAZING! This was some of our first balloon ride (me included) and if every ride could be this way - I'd do it over and over! We went over Napa Valley and could even smell... More

My wife and I decided to take a balloon ride at the last second. After rolling out of bed very early and driving over from Sonoma, I was hoping it would be worth it - boy was it! First class experience with coffee and pastries before the ride and a very good buffet style breakfast afterwards. The equipment and pilot... More

This was my husband and I first balloon ride. It was something that has been on my husbands bucket list for a number of years. I choose Napa Valley Balloons based on their experience and all of the great reviews. I booked several weeks in advance of our arrival. About a week before I arranged for them to pick up... More

My husband and I went to Napa for a few days in October to celebrate our 10-year anniversary. This was my favorite experience by far. The entire operation, from the meeting spot at a beautiful winery for pastries and coffee to the transportation to and from the balloon ride to the actual hot-air balloon ride to the mimosas and breakfast...

On the day we were scheduled late in September, there was thick and lasting fog in the Napa Valley, preventing ability to launch, which we were told is not usual, but happens. However, NVB did not miss a beat and offered an alternate site, beyond the mountains which flew over farmland rather than the vineyards. They drove us there in... More

Had the privilege of taking a balloon trip with Bob, who kept the entire group entertained with his humor and stories about ballooning and the surrounding Napa region. Everything about the trip was flawless, from takeoff to landing, and the view was INCREDIBLE. What a perfect way to start a day of wine tasting- the ride gives a whole new... More

We just experience this beutiful ride. Everything has being said on how awsome is this attraction. The only thing that bother me some how is that every time the fire goes on to gain altitude, it feels very very hot. I strongly encourge you to wear a cap or hat to avoid being unconfortable. The mornings are cold in Napa,... More
