Really enjoyed my first balloonride. The staff was very friendly and professional and the ride was smooth. Dave and his son did a great job taking us around horse country, as it was very foggy over the vineyards.

Everything was perfect from the communication before the day to the yummy mimosas at the end. All the staff was very professional and knowledgeable. Gorgeous and very special treat. Do it!

I decided on using California Dreamin' after reading plenty of reviews and giving calls. Even on the phone, their staff was polite and courteous (unlike some others), and in person they were even more friendly and caring. My girlfriend and I did this ride as part of her birthday celebration and we absolutely loved it. The only part I wasn't... More

My husband and I celebrated my birthday with a sunrise hot air balloon ride with Dave, his wife and his crew in Temecula. Everything was wonderful! The ride was perfect and smooth. There were several other balloons in his group and others flying in the skies around us. It made for a great photo opportunity. Dave really knew what he... More

A wonderful trip with pilot Dave and our family. Had a couple family members who were afraid of the idea but all that went away on the float thanks to the expert team and the soft landing!!

The pilot gave us highlights of local history and geography. Dress warmly in layers and be prepared for a couple hours with no restrooms. A hat is helpful to shield... More
