Our pilot Jeff was awesome - he really added to the overall experience with knowledge, humor and a sense of calm.

The experience was far better than I had expected - beautiful, calm and wonderful

My sister and I booked Calistoga Balloons for a hot air balloon ride while on my 50th birthday trip! Jeff the pilot was fun, engaging, knowledgeable, and had the best Dad jokes! He explained everything, and answered all the questions the group had. I would recommend Calistoga Balloons.

I felt safe and comfortable on my first balloon adventure with pilot Shane. It was smooth and gentle, Like a floating morning meditation. Loved it.

My wife and I had an awesome experience with Calistoga Balloons. I read some disappointing reviews calling out cancellations so we were nervous. We received a text message from Shane the night before saying the flight was a go. This let us sleep in longer and provided peace of mind. Pick up at the coffee shop was prompt and easy. The flight itself was really fun and the views were incredible. Shane was very knowledgeable and a great tour guide. Highly recommended!

Wow! What an amazing experience! I want to personally thank pilot Shawn for making me feel safe. I was extremely nervous prior to our flight, I asked Shawn lots of questions about balloons and I was happy to hear about his experiences flying around the world and about balloons in general. This experience was amazing. You feel you are floating up in the air and feel very very safe. When I got into the basket I was shaking and as soon as we gently lifted off the ground I realized I had made the right choice in riding the ballon, after a few minutes I was no longer nervous and I was enjoying the ride. Will definitely do this again!

We began our balloon ride next to the Veterans Home on a calm, gorgeous fall day. The experience was more than one could hope for. We felt quite comfortable with our personable, experienced guide "pilot", Shane. He made certain we had a fun day!!! HIGHLY RECOMMEND Shane and Calistoga Balloons!

First time up I’m a balloon and it was worth every minute of the wait. Our lovely pilot, Daniel, did a fantastic job talking with each of us, pointing out highlights during flight, making jokes and even story’s in the car ride. Definitely recommend this tour. It’s worth getting up early dark morning

This was by far the best decision we made while visiting the Napa area! Skip the weird mud baths and glide over the vineyards from above the clouds! We arrived early in the morning when the wind is more still. The pilot and his crew drove us a little ways in order to get the best flight in. I loved that it was a unique experience. Shane took the wind and fog into consideration and knew exactly where to go. He's flown all over the world and I truly felt like I was with the best. We had some of the most beautiful views!
Shane and his crew were professional, knowledgable, and down to earth. They were the icing on the cake.

We had exquisite conditions and had a long and breathtaking flight. This is a dream for photographers especially. Our pilot, Shane, was very experienced and informative. He had fascinating stories about ballooning over the Taj Mahal and in the Alps, among other places. It was a real treat spending time with him. Definitely worth the early alarm clock !
