My wife and I had never flown in a hot air balloon before and it was something we had both wanted to experience. We were both a bit nervous about the idea of floating in a wicker basket hundreds or thousands of feet in the air. Now that we've done it, we're looking forward to our next ride. The ground... More

Had a wonderful experience with California Dreamin' on our 18th Anniversary. Awesome views, relaxing flight with a funny and very professional pilot, and the entire crew was friendly and very accommodating. This was a great way to celebrate our very special day. Thanks everyone at California Dreamin'!

The hot air balloon ride was on my bucket list and it did not disappoint! What I was VERY impressed with was the entire crew. Everyone involved was very polite, professional, and were very willing to take as many photos as the passengers wished. As soon as we arrived at the morning meeting spot, it was pitch dark, and there... More

This was a spectacular experience! I would rate a 10 if there was such a level. We had to get up a bit early but it was well worth it. My only regret is we waited until we were 53 to do this on our 27th anniversary. The staff picked us up at our resort, drive us to their location... More

We had such an amazing time. The staff made us feel like family. They took care of every need and made it such a wonderful experience. I wish I could give them more than 5 stars. California Dreamin' is my #1 recommended hot air balloon company for Temecula, without a doubt.

I used to think of a balloon ride as a bucket list item. After flying with California Dreamin', I now think of it as something I must do every time I'm in southern California, and I will only be flying with California Dreamin'. The crew was fantastic. Dave (?), the pilot and owner, was amazing. The view was incredible. Obviously... More

Hi mccullers, We are happy to hear you were able to cross a hot air balloon adventure off your bucket list & that you enjoyed your flight! Our pilot/owner Dave definitely knows how to entertain and teach our guests about the Temecula area. As you mention, every flight is dependent on the wind so no two flights are exactly the... More

AMAZING 1st time experience...08.10.13 was a very memorable One Year Wedding Anniversary!!! I booked this place for my husband & I based upon fellow Yelper reviews. I came really close to getting one of those Groupon things but I'm glad that I didn't. The difference between them and California Dreamin is that they don't get your money ahead of time,... More

Rarely do I give five stars. The staff was excellent, the ride amazing, and the continental breakfast was filling and hit the spot. They even contacted me when I left an item and offered to ship it to my mailing address. How amazing is that?
