Taking a balloon ride is something you should do just to have the unique experience of being a part of one of the oldest forms of air travel. We had a good time in the air. However, the very long bus ride to the launching site was frustrating due to speeding, lack of seat belts, and curvy roads. The most... More

Cross one off the bucket list! We had an amazing experience and would definitely recommend Napa Valley Aloft! We wanted to find a fun, memorable activity that our teens would also enjoy! This was it! The morning of our ride there was fog in the valley and we were taken in vans to Pope Valley about a 30 minute drive... More

My niece brought me and my wife along for her birthday balloon ride this past year. My wife had a great deal of anxiety prior to the flight, but all her fears were allayed once we were in the air. Jayson, our pilot, was calm, assured and from what I could gather from others, one of the most experienced balloon... More

we had the most wonderful experience with the company, our pilot was super nice and shared stories of napa, and the view was breath taking. There is an option for brunch later which is nice. Worth the early wake up call and super reccomanded!

This is a family owned business and very well run! The morning of our ride there was fog and we were taken in vans to Pope Valley about a 30 minute drive away. We had to wait at the Pope Valley location another 30 minutes for the fog to lift. Our pilot was Jay who originally started the company and... More

First morning we woke up in Yountville, two balloons were going up in the parking lot right behind our B & B. Booked for the next day. Showed up the next day and the area was fogged in. They loaded us in vans and drove us about 30 minutes out to their alternate site at a vineyard. Very cool. Getting... More

We went ballooning with Napa Valley Aloft in July and it was a good experience overall. Our pilot was very experienced and it was a smooth ride and landing. The scenery is breathtaking and we had a clear day but not much wind so we flew only a few hundred yards away from our takeoff point. Unfortunately, due to the... More

Unfortunately the skies turned overcast on our way to the meeting place. That coupled with the fires in a nearby valley made us unable to fly over Napa. We were offered a choice of changing our reservation or going over farmland from a different launch site. We were glad to have the option of continuing or canceling. We had never... More
