Amazing views, amazing opportunity and amazing staff. Where to begin? I guess with the staff - they are simply wonderful guys that seem to enjoy making people's dreams come true. The views from the balloon are absolutely lovely, and touch down is as gentle as walking on grass. Michael and his wife provide a lovely brunch in such a pastoral... More

David, Ramon and owner Michael (and wife) offer a fun and friendly well done balloon excursion out of the Santa Rosa airport. Complete with champagne brunch after the trip. Would definitely recommend for visitors to Sonoma.

This was a great experience and the folks at Up & Away did a wonderful job. For us this was a long needed a vacation, we enjoyed wine country but the experience of hot air ballooning over the vineyards gave it an added value. And, the crew was superb and entertaining, along with the hospitality at the end of the... More

We are return customers to Up and Away Ballooning. This time was for our 30th Anniversary and we had 7 friends and family with us. Everyone had a great time. Mike, Dave and the whole crew made our flight and the accompanying brunch memorable. I can't recommend them highly enough.

This was our first hot air balloon adventure. The flight was wonderful, the crew was hardworking and came together as a team well when we landed slightly off from our target. Our pilot Dave was cool under pressure and landed us softly in a field in the backyard of a vineyard owner in the nearby area. The brunch was delicious... More

We had a memorable time hot air ballooning with Up & Away! Armand was an excellent pilot and made us feel very comfortable, even those of us who were nervous. The brunch afterward was a nice touch. I would highly recommend them for a once in a lifetime experience!

We had a great time, very personable pilot who was also very professional. Minimal wind, so we didn't travel too far, but still a good view of the area and enjoyable morning. Breakfast was great and in a beautiful setting; the wine tasting after was an unexpected bonus.

Everyone LOVED this experience! Seeing the vineyards from above, waving and talking to people below and delicious brunch with friendly crew all made for a tremendous "first" ballooning adventure. Hopefully, this was the first of more to come!

This was the most relaxing experience we can remember and the scenery was awesome. Our flight crew was knowledgeable and outgoing, safety was a priority but fun was the goal. Don't go up with anyone else. Plus the brunch buffet at the Kendall Jackson tasting garden was a nice assortment of edibles offered with a soaring prayer. We will definitely... More

This was our second attempt at ballooning as weather thwarted our first try. Fortunately the weather was in a favor this time around and we got up in the air! Mike called to confirm the night before and sent out directions and confirmation as to where and when to meet. Upon arriving at the meeting spot Dave was there to... More
