This was a wonderful experience especially for a scaredy cat like me! I was nervous about doing it as I am not good with heights but I felt completely safe with the highly confident and competent crew. The views were fantastic and the pilot (Raphie) was happy to answer any my questions about ballooning and to point out places of interest during the flight. The take off and landing were smoother than anything I have experienced in a plane. I highly recommend Portland Rose Hot Air Balloons. If you have a special birthday/anniversary coming up this would be a perfect present.

Such a great group of people. They gave a great flight and were so kind. They went above and beyond to help us get on a flight. I highly recommend Portland Rose Hot Air Balloons if you are wanting a hot air balloon experience.

We did a private flight with our family of four and pilot Chris. I am personally not a big fan of heights so I was surprised at how calm and relaxing it was! My family had an amazing time and Chris was a pleasure to talk to, and a wealth of information. All of the crew that we spoke to and interacted with were professional, friendly and very attentive. We highly recommend Portland Rose Hot Air Balloons!! And we would fly with them again!!

Such an amazing experience flying over the beautiful Oregon valley, incredible views.

The flight was so smooth that I did not even feel that we were going up or down, just that the view was changing.

Derek was very knowledgeable & extremely friendly, explaining what type of trees we were flying over, places of interest and landing the balloon in an open field, it was all more than I even expected.

Thank you Derek & Chris for creating such a magical wedding memory for my daughter & daughter-in-law, I love reliving our time in the air.

Such a beautiful experience with such a down to earth group. It's like a mom and pop (son and father) run group that is not short at all of experience or ways to make the trip enjoyable without diminishing from safety. Took care of everyone and was able to share so much history throughout as well as very knowledgeable friendly and professional through out the trip.

The whole experience was absolutely amazing. These guys - all the crew as well as the owners, Derek and Chris really love what they do. They take safety very seriously but in such a gentle way that simply invites you to be part of the whole experience.
This was one of the adventures we had in our Bucket list and we are happy we chose Portland Rose Balloons.

My families experience with Portland Rose Hot Air Balloons was amazing! We had a group of 10 for one balloon! Chris was our professional operator/expert captain. The company was easy to get a hold of, so all my questions were answered beforehand. Surprisingly, even our biggest scary-cat in our family was at ease as we took flight. If you are wanting to make memories in a hot air balloon look no further than this family run business!

We flew with the team on a Sunday morning and absolutely loved the experience. Of course, first time being in a balloon was exciting but the Pilot, Chris, was a blast. I was so curious to everything going on and he was engaged trying to answer all my questions. He made the flight amazing. Afterwards we all had a champagne toast and heard a quick history on ballooning. They really make the experience enjoyable and are a fun crowd to be around. We will absolutely be back. It’s a great family run business, and very professional.

I tried to buy 1 ticket for myself since a balloon ride was on my bucket list. Apparently they have so many customers, that they refused to sell me a ticket because I only wanted one ticket. Save your money and go some place else.

Hi, We're sorry that you are unsatisfied with our policies. Due to COVID we had to implement some new safety practices in the balloon. This meant lowering our capacity by 33% in the balloon as well as keeping groups separated in the basket by compartments and vinyl windows. In order to make it feasible for us to fly, we need to book a group of 2 or 3 in each compartment. We do this so that 2 single passengers are not next to each other in the balloon and thus risking exposure to COVID. We implemented these policies in order to be as safe as possible during the pandemic. The safety of our passengers is our number one priority. Our usual policy is to allow single flyers and we hope that we can bring that back soon, when it is safe to do so. We did offer you a flexible scheduling option if we do one day have an empty compartment open up, we would be more than happy to fly you. -Portland Rose Balloons

What an experience. We flew with David, while others in our group flew with his son Chris. These are some cool dudes and we would do it again in a heartbeat. Also, what a hard-working crew. We got some amazing views of the area. Personally I'm afraid of heights, I thought it might become a problem in a balloon but the ride is so smooth and gentle that I felt no discomfort, fear or anxiety at all. If I was going to do it again, I would dress lighter. The heat of the balloon burners kept us nice and toasty, with a heavy fleece on I was borderline sweating.

Bottom line: these guys did an amazing job for my family during a medium to large scale family event (wedding). If I was going to fly again, it would be with these guys. Prices very good fair.
