Mike and his crew do a great job of taking care of their clients and making sure that they have a good time. They are pleasant and professional at the same time. Our pilot was Jimmy. The balloon ride was a lot of fun. The brunch following the flight was beyond what we expected... the food was home made and... More

My two Sisters and I booked a flight with Up & Away Ballooning over Memorial Day Weekend. It was Wonderful. We were blessed with beautiful weather and Mike and his team were amazing. During the flight he pointed out his target landing spot and he hit it right on the mark. We were floating above the vineyards and homes...so peacefully... More

And it wasn't just because it was my first time ballooning. Mike and his staff are completely professional, which is a huge plus if one is a bit...uneasy about the whole concept of leaving the ground in a bit of cloth and wicker. The set-up was very entertaining, the pilots (all of them) friendly and knowledgeable, and the brunch afterwards... More

Flying over beautiful Sonoma County in a hot air balloon was a wonderful experience thanks to Up & Away Ballooning. The pilot and entire ground crew were professional and courteous and really knew what they were doing. This memorable trip was made even more special with a champagne brunch which is served after the flight. I would definitely recommend these... More

Wow! What a GREAT experience. I have worked for an airline for over 40 years and I must say the wonderful experience I had with Up & Away was beyond my wildest dream. Don't be afraid you hardly know you left the ground. I even took my husband up with me who had a knee replacement only 5 weeks earlier.... More

We would highly recommend Up and Away ballooning. The crew was extemely professional and personable. The trip included a brunch at a local vineyard following the balloon ride. Beautiful scenery, great crew and overall magnificent experience. This was the highlight of our honeymoon!

Mike and his crew were true professionals. The flight was fun and our safety was always first. The views were incredible and the brunch was delightful. The overall experience exceeded my expectations and Up & Away went out of their way to make the trip personable. We will definitely 'fly' with Mike again!

Mike and his crew made our first hot-air balloon experience memorable, fun, informative, safe, and longing to do it again. Because of their cheerfulness and ease with the passengers, we enjoyed every minute of the set-up, ride, landing and repacking of the balloon, and delicious brunch at the winery. We highly recommend this as a wine-country adventure. Anne & Bill... More
