We waited til the day before to try to make reservations for a hot air balloon trip over Napa Valley. We were pleasantly surprised by how accommodating and friendly everyone was. We had a great time, our pilot was very experienced and it was smooth sailing all the way. Beautiful vistas and a wonderful breakfast back at the winery afterwards.... More

The original day that we had booked ended up being cancelled due to heavy fog. We all waited patiently at the winery with plenty of coffee, juice and pastries. Mike was a great host and even took us out to the launching area. There we waited a bit more to see if the fog would clear. They blew up a... More

Our second flight with this outfitter...and a much longer trek since they purchased larger balloons...out treat. We could actually see the Golden Gate Bridge at one point on a very clear morning. Delightful. Yes, it is a bit expensive, but you only live once, right!

Napa Valley Ballooning is a great experience. We loved the serenity of the balloon gliding through the air, watching the sunrise and the beautiful land of the Napa valley below us. The late arrival of our "pilot" should have maybe alerted us. It was only when he drove our balloon through a tree crown shortly after take off that we... More

After living in Napa 17 years, and watching balloons fly over our home on a regular basis, we finally booked our own experience and are SO HAPPY we choose Napa Valley Balloons. First class from start to finish. Our pilot, Bob, is so knowledgable about ballooning and explained all aspects of the flight to us. We were in expert hands... More

We arrived in the dark the day of our trip. Alas, the weather was not cooperating so they had to cancel. We were disappointed but figured how lucky we were they did not put the money ahead of our safety!! Next day we were up bright and early. It was so worth it to have this experience. Napa at dawn...

I can't say enough about the company and the experience. Professional, personable, and top-notch. Worth every penny: the morning pastries, the almost surreal balloon ride, and then the buffet breakfast and mimosas. Truly well done. I want to especially mention Ken, who was utterly charming and reassuring to those of us who were a little nervous! A spectacular day.

We always dreamed of taking a hot air balloon ride and we were lucky enough to do it over the Napa valley. What an amazing experience, so much fun. We had a beautiful sunrise, watching the other balloons glide over the valley as the sun was coming up... was just magical. The landing was as much fun as the take... More

We had a great flight with tour guide Bob! He was very informative and took great pics for the group! The service was fantastic with the staff taking pictures before, during, and after and also getting us back for a champagne breakfast in good time! Will definitely recommend Napa Valley Balloons to all! Thanks, Beau and Brittany from GA
