My fiancée and I are the adventurous sort and lead a maverick lifestyle, so when we were contemplating plans for our wedding, we wanted something unusual, memorable, affordable, and private. A hot air balloon wedding idea seemed like it would comply with those requirements. We thoroughly researched the possibilities and eventually settled on Wine Country Balloons. I was impressed by...

Capt. Scott and his crew were fantastic! We had no problems booking directly with WineCountryBalloons.com and they kept us informed on the weather, the meeting location - everything as smooth as possible. With both Napa Valley and Sonoma Valley completely fogged in, we were taken (via chase van) 45 minutes up to Lake County where it was clear. Scott and... More

Scott is the man ! He was very kind, knowledgable and helpful. My girlfriend and I are from out of town and were late due to a few wrong turns on the way up. He delayed a bit for us and gave an address to the landing/ take off spot so that we could meet the party directly there. This... More

We booked a hot air balloon ride for four through Adrenaline365 with Wine Country Balloons.  They had no problem taking our $900.00, but when we showed up at 6AM on Sunday morning the provider said we were not on his list and he was otherwise fully booked.  He blamed the internet provider for not letting him know of us.  When...

This was our first booking with Adrenaline365 and their original correspondence was misdirected. Nonetheless we were able to accommodate these guests immediately that morning and the conditions were excellent in Hidden Valley, where we fly among numerous balloons from other Sonoma and Napa based companies. Our typical route covers 3 to 5 miles which is considered optimal because the vineyards,... More

A once in a life time experience; wondrous views. We were recommended this company by the Hyatt hotel over two others. We went with their recommendation and are glad we did. Both my 14 year old and my 18 year old loved this. The fantastic ride was augmented by the hands on experience of preparing the craft as well as... More

This was not the experience I had hoped for and we were very disappointed, especially considering the cost. The balloon itself was an advertisement, which was not the case with other companies whose balloons we happened to see in the air during this trip. The pilot had to move around the basket after landing and had no regard for his... More

We are proud to be the only balloon company selected among more than a dozen in Northern California to be awarded a sponsorship from Blue Star, which enabled us to acquire the most advanced, safest and comfortable balloon available in the USA. In return we're happy to host their company logo. This customer purchased their flight through a 3rd party... More

My husband and I went on our honeymoon. The team was so enjoyable and we had a great time. It was worth every penny! We went at sunrise and the sky was so beautiful filled with colors over the mountains. Very Romantic!
