This hot air balloon tour has to be one of the best things my husband and I have ever done! The staff are all so professional and friendly! Napa was foggy yesterday morning so they took us to the next valley which sure enough was sunny so we were able to take off. Our pilot Bob was so friendly and... More

Wow what an experience! The entire crew was so welcoming and comforting and full of information for all of our questions! Amazing and experienced pilot and the most beautiful balloons I've ever seen! Breakfast was ok, but did include champagne and mimosas! Even my sister who was a little scared and anxious pre ride, felt safe and enjoyed this experience!... More

Getting up before the sun is not typically my kind of fun while on vacation, but this was more than worth it! The winery where we initially met and then afterward had the mimosa breakfast is beautiful. Everything seemed quite organized and everyone was very helpful. Our pilot, Bob, was a hoot and very experienced & knowledgeable -- he has... More

I totally enjoyed my saturday morning balloon ride with Napa Valley Balloons! I had a blast! This hotair balloon operating company is the oldest hotair balloon company in Napay and our balloon operator, Mr. Bob Swanson, is indeed very experienced and friendly to show us a view from top! Bob was a load of fun to ride with! Highly recommended... More

The only issue with this is that you have to be an early bird so get ready to wake up around 5:00am! But it's worth it! It will be a lifetime experience! Ken was our van driver ( and balloon pilot also) and since the moment we meet him, he was very gentle and cool helping us with our plans... More

My husband who initially was a little hesitant due to his slight fear of heights, took our teenage son for this experience. Meeting time was 630am. Their adventure started off with a complimentary continental breakfast, which was nice because they did not have a chance to eat prior to leaving. I really appreciated the fact that they have an option... More

We put off this adventure for too many years and finally crossed it off the list after 20+ years! Fantastic company, experience and people. Our Balloon pilot, Ken Custis was incredible! Great stories, good humor and everyone had a great time. Definitely worth getting up so early! The excellent brunch only added to a perfect experience! Steve & Susan Folsom,... More

We had a wonderful experience at Napa Valley Balloons! From the very beginning when Lee picked us up at 5:45a, what a sweetheart, to the end, it was a great time! We had Bob as our pilot and he was very charming, we liked him a lot! It was so pretty in the sky and the pictures that they took... More
