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...

Scott is a very nice and knowledgeable man. I really enjoyed the balloon ride, and the brunch was very tasty. The whole crew is very personable and attentive.

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

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!

Wow! We would do again tomorrow. Fantastic experience! We met up with the pilot and his volunteer crew at Kaffe Mocha & Grill and left our vehicles there. Then we loaded into their van, went to Starbucks for a bathroom break & to decide on launch site and then headed to that launch site after checking wind and fog. Some... More
