This was our third ballon flight. First in Melbourne Australia, second in Bavaria Germany and now in Napa, California. By far this was the best flight! From booking last minute, ease of preparations for the flight, our amazing pilot-Jake, the flight above Napa itself, the fun landing in amongst the vineyards to the great breakfast at Oxbow.

Highlight of my trip to Napa was a morning balloon ride with Balloons Above the Valley. We had a delightful flight with Jake on Tuesday September 13th. Luckily the weather cooperated with us that day and we were able to launch very nearby the Marriott and fly over Napa Valley. The basket was FULL because the day before they were... More

My parents and I traveled to Napa for a quick trip to wine country. A highlight of our trip was a booking with Balloon Above the Valley. We drove the hour and a half from Geyserville to arrive at the Marriott by 6:15am. We then boarded vans to take us an additional 45 mins to the launch site (we weren't... More

If you can get over bring 2000 feet in the air and being with 20 other people you will have a great time. The views are spectacular,staff is professional and I felt very safe.

I've always wanted to go up in a hot air balloon. Now that i've done it, I think once is enough. The view is very cool, but the constant noise from the flame is something I didn't fully expect, and it really detracts from the peaceful vibe of floating through the air. I realize it's necessary, as the heat from... More

Unbelievable flight. Went up morning of our 30th anniversary. From the minute we checked in until the minute we left, everything was fantastic. Jake, our pilot was great. He is a 3rd generation balloon pilot. Basket not crowded. Highly recommend.

There are three hot air balloon companies in Napa that we know of. However, balloons above the valley made our ride unforgettable. We received a warm welcome in Marriott hotel lobby with hot beverages and pastries. After all the formalities done driven in a short distance to our balloon called Freedom. Once the ballon was ready which was prepared in... More

This tour was arranged through a group, so I cannot speak for any booking. We were taken by shuttle to a hotel for some coffee and a quick briefing, and then were taken to the launching grounds. Jake, our pilot, was wonderful. He explained everything, answered all questions, and made everyone feel safe. It's a very odd feeling to be... More

Jake is a fabulous pilot. I was very nervous and am( was) afraid of heights. After 2 minutes, I began to enjoy this wonderful smooth riding and landing experience. Unfortunately due to fog they had to change our route but called and told us in advance and offered a refund. I am so happy we did not take them up... More

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
