I am somewhat afraid of heights and both of us suffer from occasional dizzy episodes so we were a little anxious to say the least. From the gentle liftoff to the easy landing it was an awesome experience. The views were spectacular and the... More

We took 20 of our managers on a ride. We had an incredible time both on and off the ground. We enjoyed watching them prepare the balloons and especially the care they took in loading us into our baskets. Our pilot was very knowledgeable about the geography and history of the area which made our ride even better. After our... More

My boyfriend and I visited Temecula for our seven year anniversary. We were extremely excited for sunrise hot air balloon ride over Temecula's wineries, but it was the complete opposite of that. When we first arrived the staff was very welcoming and friendly. Once we got in the van we drove off and did some stops to make sure it... More
