We were able to sit in the warm van while waiting but this was something that was not expected. Our set up crew was very... More

Arrived at Vindemia Winery early for the set-up. We actually went to 3 locations and they tested the rise with a helium balloon. After they were satisfied the... More

Took our first hot air balloon ride for our 16th wedding anniversary and it was everything we had hoped for :-) Very nice staff met us predawn at the Vindemia winery with hot coffee/cocoa. Our balloon ride was very fun and they even put a Happy Anniversary banner on the side of the basket. After landing...we were driven back to... More

This was the first Balloon ride that my wife and I have ever taken. California Dreaming is a well run organization that makes you feel at ease and besides they have the best stories after the balloon ride while you are tasting their excellent wines. Their passion for ballooning and wine making are of the highest levels. We will definitely... More

A little worried when we meet the ground crew in parking lot behind Von's supermarket. But all great from the initial shock, of meeting a van in parking lot...Luke and Philly were awesome. The pilot Matt took a minute to warm up, but is great guy and had great insight while in the air ...and had a perfect landing! The... More
