I wish my two friends and I hadn't been so nervous beforehand about going "up and away" in a hot air balloon--because there was no reason to be scared at all. Once I got used to the sound and heat of the propane, all was good. We were up in the air seamlessly and it literally felt like we were... More

After rescheduling 3 times thanks to fog in the area we finally managed to go hot air ballooning. It was a wonderful experience. Mike happened to be our pilot pointed out the sights and gave us lots of tidbits and fun stories and kept us entertained all through the flight. The package included a champagne brunch as well, for which... More

A wonderful and exciting experience enhanced by a proficient crew who were also helpful and funny! It was my daughter's and my first experience in a hot air balloon and we would do it again in a minute. Bring your camera, a light jacket (the early mornings are cool), and wear walking shoes. The ride itself was an hour and... More

My daughter is in a wheelchair and always wanted to ride in a hot air balloon. Having seen them before, I thought there was no way she would ever be able to do this. I was wrong - through Mike's company she got her dream. The accessible basket held my daughter, a friend and me. We felt very safe and... More

My husband, daughter and I took a sunrise hot air balloon ride over the Sonoma Valley. It was the first time for all of us in a hot air balloon and the experience was beyond amazing. The views are incredible in the Valley and the feeling in the air is so peaceful. There is no sense of fear of heights... More

We visited Santa Rosa as part of our road trip across the west coast. We chose this ballooning company as it had great reviews and looked fantastic. I was a tad nervous about being in the air in just a basket but the crew are so experienced and instantly make you feel safe. Also it doesn't feel you are in... More
