My husband and I went on a trip to San Francisco/Sonoma County as an anniversary trip and our highlight of the whole trip was the balloon ride with Up & Away! The weather ended up being perfect and it was well worth the 6am call time. The ride was smooth, and the staff was very friendly and professional. The experience... More

If you've never done it, do it. It will be a memory that will last for a lifetime. And the crew at Up & Away was so professional and calm that at no time did we feel nervous. Floating through the sky as quiet as a breeze is something you'll never forget. Heck, they even treated us to a wonderful... More

First class act from beginning to end! This adventure was so easy to reserve. Mike, the owner, was great to work with. The balloon ride was so smooth. It was a nice experience to help set the balloon up. The "balloon team" was great. Mike and his wife served an amazing brunch afterwards in a vineyard. There is nothing they... More

The entire experience was fun. The people were very knowledgable and appeared to take pride in what they were doing. The flight itself was an amazing adventure. Afterwards the brunch was a nice end to the trip. Enjoyed being able to speak with them during this time. Would definitely recommend taking advantage of this opportunity if possible!

The ballooning trip was amazing - conditions were perfect and flight was smooth as can be. Even more, the team was amazing. Captain was professional, fun, knowledgeable and safe. Entire team on the ground was fast and hard working, but real fun and had great attitudes. Breakfast was beautiful, home-grown style, felt like a real country breakfast and was delicious.... More

Ballooning with Up&Away was a great experience. All of the guys there are so knowledgable about ballooning and the history of ballooning and were definitely excited about sharing this adventure with us. After the balloon ride, we went to brunch at this beautiful vineyard and there was even a complimentary wine tasting included and the vineyard also gives you a... More

The company is great to work with. Very weather dependent, but mike will work with you long as you are flexible with time. Dave was a great pilot and the whole team was fun friendly and professional. The experience should be done at least once in a lifetime!

Hot air ballooning was spectacular. I've been on rougher elevator rides. We would do it again in a heart beat. Add in a wonderful champagne brunch with chocolate covered cherries and it went over the top.
