I can't possibly say enough about this company and the people who run it... from their professionalism and experience, to their focus on safety, the balloons themselves and of course the beautiful landscape you fly over... they met every one of our expectations. Upon arrival at 5:30 AM they met us with pastries, juice, champagne, coffee, gave us instructions and... More

We went up and down and almost just above the citrus trees and grapes vines. That with the beutiful view of sunrise coming out of the mountains makes this a very... More

We celebrated my daughter's 14th Birthday with a Temecula Hot Air Balloon ride. Just amazing. We were greeted with Coffee and Danish pre-ride, and adults were offered champagne during ride. The weather was fantastic. The staff was friendly and very knowledgeable about the area. I would highly suggest this!!!!

The whole experience from beginning to end was perfect. Arriving at dawn and going up as the sun rises with a breathtaking view of the vineyards and citrus groves. 10 of us in the basket with plenty of room. Other than the sound periodically of the fire heating the balloon, the quiet as we float over the beautiful estates and... More

Very poor customer service, do not return calls or e-mails in a timely manner. My flight lasted 15 minutes and then crash landed through a row of trees and then dumped us on the side of a hill. I broke my collar bone and I know some other people on our flight suffered injuries. They showed no concern for their... More

I took my cousin for her 40th. The flight was wonderful, we had some sparkling wine, but it was, as other reviewers have noted a bit frustrating leading up to it. The first reservation I made, I never received an email as stated with detailed information. I called the week leading up to our flight (twice) both times I left... More

I called this company last week twice and left messages for a hot air balloon ride, and have never heard anything back from them. Thanks because I called A Grape Escape Balloons and they picked up the phone right away and I booked the 5 family members for a ride. It was amazing with them!
