I purchased a gift certificate for my 95 year old mother with Vista Balloon Adventures based in Newberg. The ride was on her bucket list. Actually this was her third time up, the bucket list piece was getting me to go with her:-) The sunrise was spectacular! The crew was great! The ride was wonderful! We touched down in the... More

We loved our hot air balloon experience with Vista. The people were extremely friendly and let you help with the entire process (or not if you don't want to). The ride was beautiful and the food served afterwards was delicious. It is a bit expensive (all of the local companies charge about the same) and it is very early in... More

Wow. One of the top ten experiences of my lifetime. My wife is afraid of heights but she felt very comfortable. The pilots are very skilled. Everyone involved is very friendly. Highly recommended.

What a fantastic experience! My husband surprised me with a flight for our anniversary. Perfect flight with perfect weather. and we got to do a 'splash & dash', where the pilot touches the surface of the Willamette River with the basket! That isn't always possible, what a treat! Soft landing, and then a toast with all the fliers, and a... More

This had been on my bucket list for years and now (after a couple of cancelled balloon flights due to weather last year) we finally got to take a ride for our 30th wedding anniversary! We got to help with the set up and pull down of the balloon which was really exciting! From start to finish it was an... More

Our family of 5 had a wonderful time! We weren't so sure about the dynamics about going with kids (ages 12, 10, and 7), but it all worked out very well. They loved being a part of the process of inflation and deflation and soaked in every minute of the peaceful ride. The pilot and crew were amazing. Definitely an... More

My husband and I included Vista Ballons as part of our Oregon vacation in August 2013. It was a wonderful experience...a beautiful and peaceful ride and an amazing crew who are friendly, seaoned professionals. The crew are a well oiled machine who make getting up in the air and even putting away the balloon as much fun as the ride.... More
