From a high of 4000 ft to a skim of the basket on the surface of the Willamette River, this early morning activity was superb. We took my 89 yr old mom for the surprise of her life and she loved it. We started the adventure in darkness and ended with a champagne toast and spectacular multi dish outdoor breakfast.... More

My husband surprised me with a trip for out 21st anniversary. Class act all the way from instruction to the trip and then a country brunch champagne picnic after. Im not a huge fan of heights but could not tell we were moving at all. Pilot did a few touch and goes on water! SO MUCH FUN!!!

We took a hot air balloon ride with Vista on our first morning in the Willamette Valley. We loved our adventure and thought it was well worth the money. Our balloon pilot was so knowledgeable and so good at his job. The volunteers they have that help with everything are awesome. We were so impressed with the family-like atmosphere it... More

Oh my gosh, I had so much fun the first time in 2014 that I had to go again. The learning experience was so enriching and the flight itself beautiful. We had two guests that were scared of heights so we didn't go above 700 feet. Great pilot to catch the fright and play it down. I will do this... More

Incredible experience! First off you have to get here by 615am because they like to have the balloons in the air while the sun rises. Excellent staff! Everyone works together very well to make the magic happen. After the amazing hot air balloon ride they provide breakfast for everyone. I highly recommend this experience!

I can't recommend this balloon ride & company enough! Staff were welcoming, organized, professional & fun. View was spectacular - including seeing the other balloons floating near us!! It was everything I dreamed of and more! We were lucky to be on a ride with a fantastic pilot who skillfully touched down on the river! I appreciated sharing experiences with... More

I made a reservation for 8 as part of our week long trip to Willamette Valley. This was definitely one of our highlights. While it is a bit shocking to be at the launch site at 5:30 am, it is well worth getting up for. It is a very cool experience to watch the balloons get prepped (my husband got... More

My husband planned this as a surprise with our two young adult kids. And what a surprise! Definitely worth getting up early for. The whole fleet of balloons went up which provided some awesome photo opportunities. Our Pilot John was wonderful. I'm sure he gets asked the same questions over and over each trip, so he had some witty answers... More
