We can't say enough about how much we enjoyed our first flight with this family of hot air balloon pilots. I was concerned with the heavy fog on our way to the Pope Valley for our flight. The valley we flew over was beautiful. Make sure you bring a camera to keep some memories of the experience!

What a way to enjoy Napa Valley. My wife and I were very lucky to go up after a week of rain and poor weather conditions! The skies cleared and we loved every minute of our ride! Nice to have the owner of the company as your pilot! Highly recommend this to anyone even if you are afraid of heights!... More

The pilot, Jim, was informative along the way over the vineyards & sites. A must do if you are in the area and want to get... More

It was a wonderful experience floating in the early morning sky above the vine yards at around two thousand feet for a little more than an hour. Our pilot Kim is very experienced and very friendly. Tour finishes of with a nice breakfast by 9 am.

This was a highlight our trip to the valley. Our pilot Jason was very knowledgeable. The day was a clear beautiful day. We were literally floating in the air. The balloons with Aloft are smaller than some of the other companies, but that's what made the experience so special! We can check a hot air balloon ride off the bucket... More

We stayed in Yountville in February 2014. Napa Valley Aloft told us ahead of time that they are only able to take off about 30% of the time this time of year due to the weather. We tried to keep low expectations... but thankfully, the day we booked dawned sunny and perfectly clear. We arrived at the site in downtown... More

What a great experience…from start to finish!! I had a lot of questions regarding the hot air balloon ride. At one point the woman asked if she could call me back because she had to ask her dad and chief pilot (and yes a family run company!!) She called me back and assured me my concerns were not an issue... More

We awoke to thick fog in the valley the morning of our departure, but thankfully we had chosen Napa Valley Aloft and the fog did not spoil our flight. Unlike the other ballooning companies who were grounded due to the fog, NVABR has agreements with land owners to fly and land up in Pope Valley. So we loaded into a... More

The hot air balloon ride was really nice. Most of the ride was very smooth & pleasant. We did get caught in a breeze & result the landing was bumpy. But overall, great adventure.
