My wife and I did a sunrise balloon ride last week and it was incredible. Captain Phil and his crew are top notch and really know how to make it a memorable experience for everyone. I was surprised at how many people they can fit into the gondola of the balloon, there were 16 in ours. We took off in... More

Riding the hot air balloon was absolutely a memorable experience for me and my friends. Not only have we managed to capture the beauty of the sun rising from the East, but we have also enjoyed the stories our pilot has offered. There were no dull moments during our flight. We ended the flight with a mimosa toast which was... More

This was a birthday treat from my wife and we had the best time! Our pilot trained us on our take off and landing procedures, so we felt safe. We went up to about 100 feet and saw some great vistas and got some incredible photos. We cruised around for about an hour and it was a wonderful experience!

I recently went on a hot air balloon ride with this company and was unsatisfied with my trip and posted a yelp review. After this the company manager not only didn't apologize, he actually went as far as disparaging me on their facebook page (really, how old are you?) Basically they place a filming crew on our balloon, making a... More

I'm not the manager Steve, I am the owner. I am embarrassed for you and sorry for Emma. On this version of your review you left out any mention of your celebrity appearance expectation. You created falsehoods about your experience and posted them publicly on multiple review websites. You insulted our staff and volunteers and attacked me personally when I... More

The crew and the pilots of the Magical Adventure Balloon Rides were all very nice and professional. While we didn't have much wind and we didn't travel very far, we were kept entertained by our pilot, Bill, who educated us about the local history and about ballooning in general. The company has an agreement with the South Coast Winery to... More

I recently took my team on a balloon ride over Del Mar. Wonderful crew and amazing captain. These guys are great at landing on a specific spot. If you want to see the amazing houses in Rancho Santa Fe, go soon as the landing spots are getting fewer and fewer. The magical adventure balloon group has the best balloons in... More

What an amazing way to spend a morning. This hot air balloon experience will leave you with a myriad of exciting memories to gloat about and share with family and friends. You'll find yourself floating through air as the balloon gently takes off and glides over the beautiful Vineyards and community of Temecula. Your view is unencumbered and panoramic. During... More
