We surprised our mom for her 82nd birthday by helping her check off "Hot Air Balloon Ride" from her Bucket List... and she LOVED it!! She wasn't scared and felt very safe the entire time. It was very peaceful, calm and serene during our hour + ride. It was a perfect day for flying. We ascended to 4000 feet. The... More

Excellent experience! The early morning adventure lasted three hours but passed by quickly. Be sure to bring a device to capture the sights only available from a hot air balloon. The lovely scenic views from the sky were captivating! Our pilot pointed out different wildlife and landmarks as we made our flight. He even did a "splash and dash"! Be... More

Thank you for taking the time to review Vista! A great many of our guests have some degree of a fear of heights, but the vast majority completely forget about it just a few minutes into the flight. We're glad that you enjoyed the serenity of the experience. Thanks again! More

This was a great adventure. Different from anything we had ever done before. Sailing over the beautiful Willamette Valley was amazing. The farmlands look totally different from the air. A beautiful quilt! The Vista team is a well organized group and made the experience exceptional. We will do it again.

Not being a fan of heights, I was a bit concerned. But our professional pilot and the Owner Pierre as well as the other helpers were very reassuring. I really felt the pilot did a phenomenal job explaining things so you were prepared and reassured. the views are breathtaking! When conditions are right, they touch down lightly on the Willamette...

I've had the good fortune to fly with Kelly of Vista Balloons about 4 times over the last 18 years or so. Each time, it has been a fabulous experience. Kelly is an excellent pilot and tour guide. She knows the region, terrain, weather patterns, etc. We were in one of the larger baskets on the most recent trip with... More

I can't say enough great things about this outing my fiancé and I had!! Originally I had planned it for July 11th for my fiancé's birthday but unfortunately, due to the winds, we were unable to fly that day. At first I was pretty bummed but it also made me realize this company takes safety seriously, which is very important!!... More

Vista Balloons was our first trip ever up in a hot air balloon. We were a group of 4, and went with another group in the "big" balloon basket. One of our party was a little nervous about the trip, but the staff was reassuring and convinced him to get in. The morning starts early, before dawn, and you get... More

Awesome experience, beautiful view, great pilot and crew! Best early morning activity! Ride was smooth, full of fun events like riding on the river. Nice brunch as well. It was all I thought it would be and I am so glad I did it. I would definitely recommend vista!
