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

A marvelous experience. We launched from the heirloom rose garden with the sunrise. What a beautiful site: the sunrise, roses, 5 other balloons in the air! Our pilot, John, actually landed our balloon on the Williamette River! No, our feet did not get wet. Will remember for a lifetime!

It was a stunning experience to go up in the air with a fleet of eight balloons. As the sun came up, we had breathtaking views of the Mt. Hood in the distance. We loved our pilot, Kelly, and her ability to have our balloon skim the waters of the Willamette River and pass near an osprey nest This is... More

Remarkable! From watching the balloons set up, floating above the breathtaking Willamette Valley with my lovely wife and other passengers - thanks to our highly skilled and knowledgeable pilot, Rod - including a splash and dash, to a champagne brunch that exceeded my expectations, this a must for every bucket list! The ground crew was personable and well organized. Every... More

First time flyers aged 51, 50, 17, and 15. We all LOVED it. Gorgeous views, friendly and knowledgeable crew, yummy breakfast. A very peaceful flight. Highly recommend it. Really enjoyed the way the crew involves the passengers. It makes for an engaging and memorable experience. So many amazing photos.

AMAZING!!! I have been in small planes and helicopters. This was a totally different experience! We were able to go up to 3,200ft and we also touched the Willamette River! It was so quiet and serene. I was having a hard time with spending the money for our family of four, but it was going to be a surprise for... More

What an outstanding experience. Our pilot was a 10.....his skill was superb. We had a smooth river float too. The crew ensured that the experience was memorable. I highly recommend Vista...and plan to do this annually. Thank you

My wife and I celebrated our 45th anniversary with our first balloon ride. Vista Balloon did not disappoint. We arrived at the launch site in Newberg before dawn and were airborne shortly thereafter. Pilot Roger taught us a lot about the variation in wind direction at different altitudes; that's how one steers a balloon. We were lucky to fly over... More

We took my 81yr old mother for the hot air balloon ride for her belated birthday gift. She was a little apprehensive about going but she is pretty spunky and willing to try it if we were (daughter and partner, and grandson). She TOTALLY enjoyed the experience! The flight was beautiful, was not the adrenal rush type of adventure she... More
