This was our first time doing this activity. We were a bit nervous but the staff made us feel right at home. The pilot was very friendly and professional. Once we landed we got to have mimosas and a breakfast they fixed up for us. The perfect place for hot air balloon over wine country.planning when to go back.

The pilot has 38 yrs flying balloons and it shows. We got so close to the orange groves that you could smell the oranges. He had extensive knowledge of all of the sights and he had a great personality. There was never a dull moment. Let me tell you i thought it would be a waste of money but i... More
