My wife and I did this yesterday morning, we had an awesome time. Watching the crew get the ballon ready was a really cool thing to see. Would highly recommend this company for a hot air balloon ride. Crew was super nice and informative of the areas we passed over. I would recommend everyone wear a hat. I am 5'9,... More

Our morning started with a complimentary pick up from our resort, we were driven to the Vindemia winery where we were greeted with smily faces. Matt was our pilot ( such a pleasant guy, he explained every step to us before... More

This was just an incredible experience. I've done a lot of adventurous things on my bucket list, and this one is right at the top. Floating above wine country was just breath taking. I'd recommend this to anyone even if not a wine enthusiast.

If you're looking for an amazing experience combined with impeccable customer service, California Dreamin is the way to go! Breakfast was served afterwards on the family's beautiful vineyard! Due to the wind on this particular day, our views were limited. I gave an excellent rating because of their overall service.

Actually 3.5, I took my mom for a balloon ride and chose California Dreamin because of the reviews. The welcome was warm, the people there were extremely friendly and nice to deal with. They took us to the launch site and we were the first balloon in the air. The launch-ride-landing experience was perfect. Post landing they had a small... More

Had a wonderful time. Weather had been stormy day prior and felt they were very cautious in determining the conditions were safe for travel. Owners and crew extremely knowledgeable, courteous, and friendly. Taking pictures, explaining process etc, beautiful, peaceful ride. Mimosas at landing and later nice, light breakfast at winery. Good time, good company

This was an Anniversary gift from our son to celebrate our 40th Anniversary last year. Had to wait for the perfect Sunset and we weren't disappointed for our first air balloon ride and what a wonderful adventure it was. We left from the La Jolla area, and we agree with all the previous reviews. We met some amazing people and... More

I arranged the flight for my girlfriend and I as a surprise. It was great on so many levels. California Dreaming is professionally run, family operated business that focuses on safety, comfort, personal attention and creating a unique experience. Being a pilot, my first question was how much experience our pilot had? Of which he replied: 37 years Ballooning in... More

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
