I first reviewed Sunrise Balloons in July 2012. The experience was terrific! So, after purchasing another Groupon to use for a balloon ride this year, I used the link on the Groupon to access the Sunrise Balloon website. The 'Click here to activate your Groupon' message on Sunrise's website was inoperable. So I called to make a reservation. I called... More

Let me start by saying, don't expect anyone to answer the phone during office hours or call you back when you leave a message. They won't send any special instruction by email either so read other's reviews in order to know what's going on. Next, breakfast sucks. You get coffee and an off label creamer. A handful of apples and... More

Great experience. One for the bucket list. I do not like heights but here we were in a "floating balcony". The crew all made you feel very safe. The mimosas also helped.

I paid a lot of money for a balloon ride that never happened on account of the weather (which I can accept), but the company has failed to deliver me the promised partial refund I was seeking and has evaded all attempts on my part to contact them. As I was on holiday and I don't even live in the... More

Hot air ballooning with sunrise balloons was a great experience. They were friendly, experienced professional who know their business . Pilot Dan was super and gave us an excellent flight and tour of the Temecula Valley. I would highly recommend this attraction and would fly again without a doubt!

Spent a lot of money on this trip. We would have rather taken the trip as advertised, over wine country; instead we got views of half finished housing developments and tumbleweed. The owner or whoever made announcements in the morning could have been far less sexist when telling "women who are so attached to their little purses" that they couldn't... More

It took too many attempts to detail to get in touch with this company. As our ride kept being postponed later and later into the fall we wanted to know why we still had to be there at 5:30 with the sunrise not until 7am. But we were told that that's their starting time. The promised continental breakfast was a... More

I had some doubts after I bought my passes for this. I had read so many bad reviews about cancelation and bad service, but the day we went was perfect. Nothing was cancelled, the service was good, our pilot Chris was absolutely hilarious. Even though he doesn't stop talking, he was awesome. We got lucky enough to have a longer... More

This is my first review of an attraction I "couldn't" take part in. My wife gave me a Groupon for Sunrise Balloons and we were really looking forward to experiencing this activity. The problem was, we were never able to get in contact with them. I called and left a message AND called an additional four times at different times... More
