We had the most wonderful time I can imagine!!!! It was so calm up in the air...like going up in an elevator. I have a TERRIBLE fear of heights, but never had a moment of fear in the entire ride! The ride was absolutely fabulous! We flew over vineyards, farms and just open grasslands. We saw it all. The scheduling... More

Just the best thing I have ever done. Great company to go with. Friendly and very safe. The biggest ballooning company locally and I can see why too. Its very peaceful and warm with the burners just a few feet above your head. You go high enough to see all of the valley and low enough to hear the birds... More

Totally blew my expectations out of the water. Took my boyfriend on a hot air balloon ride for his birthday, it was a beautiful day, overlooking vineyards. It was absolutely perfect. I would highly recommend to everyone.

Our balloon ride was fabulous. Our Captain Armond was an amazing pilot. We landed within 100 feet of where we took off. He said this was an unusual circumstance that happens only a few times a year, but it was spectacular. I think he could have landed on an egg and not broke it, the landing was so soft. The... More

Well organized. Experienced the whole deal--from setup to take down and put away. Amazing. Our captain, David, was very proficient, knowledgeable, and friendly. Included a champagne breakfast at a local winery under the trees. Had a beautiful day. Would use this company again.

We went up on Monday the 30th of March. I expected cold, windy and noisy. Boy was I wrong. It was warm, no wind and only the sound of the flames, when needed. It was fantastic. Beautiful scenery, informed staff and the buffet at the end was of the same quality. I would recommend this company to anyone. dave lose
