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!

They are Serial Cancelers! Sunrise balloons cancelled on us due to "hitting a tree and tearing the balloon"... I believed it until I went to Yelp and Google and found they cancelled multiple times (even 3 times) on other victims. Sad that they ruin people's weekends that are all planned for months.

Had a great ride and would do it again. Our pilot CJ was great. It was our 25th anniversary and we both loved it. Thanks Sandy and Chris for a great two days!

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.
