Highly recommend this! First let me tell you that it was my first ever hot air balloon ride, but I have dreamed of doing it since I was 5, and when I learned my dad also wanted to do it, I decided his October birthday would be the perfect time. And although it was perfect, it wasn't perfect enough because... More

I bought a groupon for a balloon ride with this company. We tried 3 times to make the flight and it was canceled each time... can understand when it is weather related but this last time, a more perfect day could not be had... no wind.. blue skies so we were quite surprised when we got to the meeting site...

Like others, we purchased an online deal for a balloon ride for two . . . though we didn't get to take our trip on our honeymoon, as planned, we were able to reschedule for 10 months later (!) and finally got our ride in! Yes, the trips are very dependent on the weather -- and other riders were frustrated... More

From the moment we met Cap'n Dan we felt at ease. My husband and I decided to something different for our 36th anniversary, and choose Valley Hot Air Ballooning for some excitement and special memories. We had to reschedule a couple times due to poor weather conditions, which I appreciated. He explained each phase of the ride for us, from... More

April easily rescheduled us after I had an unexpected business trip. We got to the meet up site after spending the day exploring the area. There had been a few pop up storms that day so we had to wait a little longer to see if it would be safe to go up. Finally, we got the go ahead. The... More

My mother bought a Groupon they had for a trip for two. Due to the weather and once a flat tire on the drive to Woodstock (where the company is actually located; Edinburg is just the mailing address) we had to reschedule I think 8 times before we made it off the ground. For others in our group though, this... More

My husband and I did not have some of the problems experienced by others who have reviewed this company because we purchased a third-party certificate. However, it did take us ten reservations before we could fly. We had to travel to Woodstock and stay overnight and estimate that we spent at least two thousand dollars in travel costs. Had we...

They are located in such a remote spot that you have to stay overnight in a small motel in order to wake up at 5 am to go on the sunrise balloon ride because it gets too windy to fly at sunset. You can't fly over 5mph, or if it rains, etc. Well, It is always a little windy in... More

I have had an on-going issue with VALLEY BALLONING based in Woodstock, VA for 3 separate purchases towards 3 hot air balloon rides. The issue is that THEY DID NOT HONOR the on-line discount vouchers for hot air balloon rides purchased in April of 2010. I have even traveled three times from Upstate New York to the nearby small town... More

Had a wonderful experience with Valley Ballooning. I have been wanting to take a hot air balloon ride for a number of years and finally decided to do it. I researched hot air balloons on line and decided to go with Valley Ballooning. I was not disappointed. I scheduled my ride with April and she was very helpful. It was... More
