Spent a weekend in Temecula and wanted to go on a hot air balloon ride with my wife. After doing research of different company this rated the best. I couldn't agree more with the reviews. We were the first balloon up in the air which was great because it gets hotter the later you go up. Our pilot was great.... More

They were so professional and they were the first hot air balloon place to set up. There were 6 other hot air balloon companies that showed up after us at the launching site. Matt, our pilot told us he likes to start early so they have plenty of time to do everything right. He was very informative during the flight... More

My wife bought us the ballon flight for my 68th birthday. We showed 4:45 am and were greeted at vineyard where the day started. Then off we went in a van with the pilot and crew to find the place we depart from, after a short stop to check winds, we parked in a field and watched as the crew... More

I bought this as a surprise gift for my daughter's July 4th birthday. What I imagined wasn't exactly what we got. I imagined that we would drive up to a fully inflated balloon with the "Happy Birthday" banner already attached to the basket and I imagined that we would be in the air when the sun rose. What actually happened... More

My husband surprised me with this sunrise balloon ride for my birthday, and it was amazing. Our pilot was friendly and very knowledgable. The ground crew went out of their way to take pictures for us and I was only sorry that we didn't bring cash to tip them. The breakfast was a wonderful end to to an amazing morning.

I was so thrilled when I found out we won a balloon ride. I've dreamed of a hot air balloon ride for years. This would be our first time. We were pick'd up @... More

Would just like to say how pleased we were with our balloon flight... It was the highlight of our honeymoon. The pilot was friendly and the ground crew went out of their way to take photos even though they were clearly busy preparing and packing the equipment. The flight was meant to last 45-60 mintues, but ended up slightly over... More

We vacationed in temecula and decided to take our first ever balloon ride. California dreamin' had competitive prices and were very easy to deal with. I gave them the wrong date for our ride and they quickly changed it when I discovered my error. Finding the place was easy and the staff was very professional and friendly. The balloon ride... More

Best price by far, especially for the level of service you recieve. The ride was fantastic. Felt 100% the entire time. Breakfast afterwards back at the vinyard was a beautiful end to the adventure but a great start to the day.
