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

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.
