“floating in the gentle breeze”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2014

This balloon ride was great! The staff was very helpful beginning with the initial call to Gail to inquire about the adventure. I went with 2 people who were apprehensive because they are afraid of heights..but the ride was smooth, the staff put us at ease, and we would all definitely go again. we glided through the air " with the greatest of ease". Dave, our " pilot" made us feel very confident in his abilities and we could tell he really knew what he was doing: 38? years of experience. The view was beautiful even in the OFF-season when the grapevines are pruned back twigs instead of lush green vines. He pointed out many landmarks and introduced us to the area in a way not possible by land. He also shared many tidbits of wisdom with us. Ours was a sunrise adventure. What a way to great the day!
Also perfect for birthday and anniversary celebrations.
Back at his vineyard-while relaxing in the early morning sun- we enjoyed mimosas, homemade bread, crackers and cheese, fruit and even chocolate cake in honor of those celebrating special days. It was the highlight of our CA vacation.

“Great ride. Great crew...but mother nature was the star.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2014

A little worried when we meet the ground crew in parking lot behind Von's supermarket. But all great from the initial shock, of meeting a van in parking lot...Luke and Philly were awesome. The pilot Matt took a minute to warm up, but is great guy and had great insight while in the air ...and had a perfect landing! The views from balloon are only way in aviation to experience with such serenity. We'll be scheduling another ride soon. Was great romantic ride for two.
