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

Had a wonderful time with Vista in Newberg Oregon! Treated us like part of the family. I would highly recommend a balloon ride anytime!

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

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.
