The folks that run this are very nice and want to make sure you have a positive experience. We met in Napa at the Marriott and had to be driven to another city because of the fog in Napa. We arrived while the balloons were being blown up and it was interesting to watch. Our pilot, Jake, was awesome! He... More

This was a well organized tour, from our 5am meeting to the ending brunch. Russ, our pilot really made us feel that we were safe and entertained! The views were breathtaking and we have some wonderful pictures that will soon be framed on our walls at home. We met some lovely people in our group and thoroughly enjoyed this adventure.... More

This was a really fun experience - would highly recommend it if you are looking for something different to do for a day. We spent 4 days in Napa, so we wanted to do something other than wine tasting for one of our days. The worst part is getting up at 5am, but we were so excited we had no... More

We had booked to go on this trip while we where staying in San Francisco. The fog was very bad so they changed the trip from over Napa valley to over the other side of the hills. Everyone was given the choice to get their money back if they didn't want to continue on with the trip. This trip was... More

My boyfriend surprised me for my birthday with a balloon ride. Although I was a little scared at first, I must say this was better than I expected. The lift and flight was nice and smooth. Our driver Johnny and pilot Bob were awesome and very accommodating!

I choose to do the balloon tour with my son since he would be bored by doing a wine tour. Which wouldn't be age appropriate anyhow. The balloon tour was fanastic!!! Our pilot Russ toured us over some lovely vineyards and we managed to see some beautiful homes from above. The breakfast buffet was also a really nice compliment to... More

I can't say enough about this smoothly run company, we met at the Marriott in Napa for morning coffee to start our journey above the valley. Everyone was very friendly and informative. We were whisked away in a van to the meeting place were our balloon was to lift off from. Russ was our pilot, was friendly, funny and I... More
