Going up, we actually had to scramble to get into the basket and then we almost ran into a fence. It was noisy and hot going up and there seemed to be only minutes when it was quiet. The scenery was lovely but given the noise and heat, once was enough.

We came down from Vancouver for a conference in San Francisco. On a whim, came down a day early to spend a day in Sonoma but decided to start our day with a balloon flight. It was a great morning, so organized, very friendly and knowledgable staff, felt safe and truly amazed by the view from above.

I purchased tickets to do this as a Christmas present for my wife. I live in Sonoma County and I wanted to find something that tourists come here to do that we haven't already done. When I found a Sonoma County tourism page, at the top of the list was hot air ballooning. Perfect! We met the crew at the... More

We took the opportunity to fly with this company and we were so happy with the experience. Our pilot was exceptional and handled the balloon in a safe and assuring way. The after brrunch was delicious and held at a local winery with home cooked food...wonderful.

Our wine country trip was made complete with our fabulous balloon experience with Up and Away Ballooning! Mike was very helpful and accommodating to make sure we were able to fly the week we were visiting, right down to helping us decide which day to book so that a weather wouldn't be a factor!! The crew was so friendly and... More

Up and Away did an amazing job, we had such a terrific time with them. What we really loved was how inclusive the entire experience was. After picking us up from the airport and getting us to the take-off point, the staff included all of us throughout the process of getting the balloons laid out and inflated. Once up in... More

Eight years ago I purchased a gift certificate for our 20th anniversary. Due to life, work and weather we were finally able to fly on my husband's birthday this year. And the experience was worth the wait! Mike, Pilot Dave and the entire crew made the flight an outstanding experience. We felt safe and secure while we soared over Sonoma... More

My husband and I, along with another couple, so enjoyed our ballooning experience! We also enjoyed participating in getting the balloon ready! Our pilot was awesome and we always felt very safe. The balloon experience was followed by a tasty lunch! Would definitely do this again!!!!

One of the highlights of a girls trip to California wine country. Was worried I would be scared but felt very safe. It was so serene and beautiful. The brunch afterwards was delicious and topped of an overall wonderful experience.

Mike and the Up and Away team were fantastic and surpassed our expectations! Very professional and safe. The best way to see wine country; floating in the air over vineyards and redwood trees. The champange brunch was a treat and the food and wine were delicious. If you are thinking of flying, choose Up & Away.
