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

My best friend and I decided to try the Sunrise Champagne Hot Air Balloon Tour with Sunrise Balloons and felt like royalty from the start. Marcus was enthusiastic even at 5am while he served guests mimosas prior to take off. This experience has a high level of “you get what you give”, and by this I mean that many couples... More

I have never written a review for anything before, but I will for this. I went on this hot air balloon ride with my fiancé and the ride itself was amazing. What was horrible is that I did not receive my pictures as was promised by the the company. They lost the pictures and made no attempt to get in... More

Our ride was a gift from our daughter and son-in-law and what a wonderful gift it was. The meeting place was a beautiful winery, Monte de Oro, in Temecula's wine country. Unfortunately, the marine layer had the vineyards socked in, so we went by "party bus" to a launch area a little ways away in the sunshine. Our pilot, Chris,... More
