If you are looking to see napa from above, and been thinking about hot air ballooning, then up and away Napa is the place to choose. Mike ( our guide and pilot) made it a wonderful experience. Of course, the scenic wonders are abound. Happy ballooning:)

Friendly and knowledgeable staff. Basket held only 12 passengers, so it was a perfect sized group. Sonoma County is a great place to view from a balloon. Lots of wineries, houses, schools, some businesses. One of our group had recently done Napa County and much preferred Sonoma and the smaller size that Up & Away provided. Up & Away provided... More

My husband and I, our 8 year old daughter and 6 year old son took a hot air balloon ride with Armand. It was an incredible experience for all of us! Mike and his whole team were fantastic. The ride was exhilarating. I've never done anything like it and the kids had a super time! Brunch afterward in the vineyard... More

The Up & Away crew and staff were wonderful! They are very attentive and work hard to give you the best experience. This is a great way to see the beautiful countryside of Sonoma county. A great brunch awaits you at the Kendall-Jackson winery which is a beautiful palace as well!

I wanted to do something special for my engagement to my long time partner, so I found this place in NORCAL. I wasn't expecting much, but from the moment the balloon was being rolled out on the ground, you get the sense that you're in for something special. The ride is gentle and so is the landing (shout out to... More

Thank you Will for the review. Glad you had a great time and she said yes! We consistently fly longer, higher, lower and over more beautiful landscape than the competition. P.S., we do weddings! Kind regards Mike More

My husband and I had such a great time! Mike was so lovely and gracious, and our pilot, Armand was wonderful-very charming and informative! We got to see the most gorgeous view of the valley and then we were treated to a lovely outdoor brunch. Absolutely worth your time and money!! And they offered a free tasting at KJ, which... More

Our pilot Armand was an expert. I've been on elevator rides that weren't as good as Armand's landing. Seeing the Sanoma area from the air on a gentle drifting ride was wonderful. And at the end was a real full breakfast. A great experience that fulfills another item on our bucket list.

Every detail - from the crew, to the flight, to the brunch - was carefully considered and diligently carried out. The overall quality and professionalism of the staff was surperb and the conversation made aboard was awesome entrrtainment (aside from the obvious visual beauty of Sanoma county!).
