Our pilot was great and the equipment was high quality, but the scenery was a disappointment. After takeoff from the Sportsman Airpark we flew south over a water treatment plant, recycling center, and then some residential houses before we had our first real photo opportunity over the Willamette River. I had high expectations from the online reviews and was really... More

Roger was our pilot, the morning was beautiful. He's a pro, very spirited and kind and well experienced. I felt I was in safe hands as I floated above the earth. A beautiful breakfast buffet was ready when we landed. Loved it!

This was awesome~ I wasn't sure at first because I'm scared of heights but the baskets are large and the crew put you at ease. It was so much fun watching them setting up the hot air balloon and then all of us loading in for a chance in a lifetime experience. I felt so comfortable with Robert as our... More

An awesome experience as five hot air balloons took off over wine country in Newberg Oregon at dawn. Pilot John Kent and all the Vista Balloon staff and volunteers were wonderful, friendly and helpful. My husband and I assisted in filling the balloon for launch. The countryside is a patchwork of amazing colors and texture. We soared to 1400 feet... More

First air balloon ride. The scenery was beautiful and the ride in the balloon was nothing but smooth sailing. Finished with a good brunch and mimosa. I would recommend this activity for people of all ages and abilities!

Thank you Rick at Vista Balloon Adventures for kicking off our Willamette Valley wine tour day with an amazing balloon ride. The tour was part educational learning about the balloons, helping to inflate them, and then taking off into a perfect morning. We learned about how the balloon flies, the local topography/sights, and then got to help pack up the... More

I went earlier this month with a group. All six of us were in one balloon, which was nice. To start they ask for volunteers to help put air in the balloon. My husband was very excited to be one of the helpers. I really enjoyed watching it go from nothing to being a giant. I have always seen them... More

To start things off we were given the wrong driving directions by our hotel staff and we ended up lost and a long way from where we should have been. However, after we acquired cell service we were able to make contact and they waited a few minutes for us to get there- we were meeting family and thy had... More
