The team was weary professional and very friendly! They explained everything about the flight so we felt safe! We enjoyed the flight and our super talented pilot who showed us some tricks and made the best video for us 🙂 The team did everything to make it COVID safe. We were given face masks and sanitizers, we were transported in big vans - one family/party per car (even parties of two are transported separately). The balloon had dividers so each party stays in their own compartment. And, on top of all this, after returning we received something special ☺️ Highly recommend this experience!

This was my first hot air balloon ride, but it was absolutely amazing, the team was great, from the time we showed up they were accommodating, very friendly, fun and it made everything go smoothly. My pilot Chad was incredible, definitely major thumbs up, informative, very charismatic, outgoing, and all around fun. I'm definitely going again and would recommend this company to anyone in the bay area looking to go on a hot air balloon ride.

We were visiting Family members for the weekend and we decided to take the hot air balloon ride. It was an amazing adventure, Chad was our pilots and he was absolutely wonderful! Shayna was our driver and she was very sweet and fun! She was very courteous and attentive to our needs. The only thing that I would complain about is that we had a party of six and we all had to ride in the basket together and it was very crammed. It was a little confusing since in some compartments they were only two people together and we were all crammed with six people so it was very uncomfortable. But because the ride was so beautiful the experience turned out to be pretty good

With all this Covid19 in place all the staff went above and beyond to keep everyone safe. Safety was their top concern and they did not disappoint. As first timers the experience could have not been better. Our Capitan Russ was experienced and FUNNY! Our Driver which name I forgot (I'm so sorry yet I will always remember her face) was amazing!. She was very friendly and as she puts it "Nerdy" which fit just right with me and my boyfriend. We launched from an alternative site due to weather but the drive was fun and it was quick. The Hot air balloon ride was very peaceful and beautiful! Overall everything was simply awesome. Our landing was a bit bumpy and rough but it was fun like hell. Super funny it had all of us laughing. We landed in the middle of a field and had to walk a bit to our vans ( transportation) but no big deal! Don't overthink and book worth every penny. p.s My respect and admiration to all the staff for keeping their cool and professionalism even when their "boss" didn't.

Just finished an amazing balloon ride over Napa Valley. What a wonderful experience!!! Gio picked us up from our hotel and provided pastries and coffee before the trip. Chad, our pilot, was knowledgeable and charismatic and fun!!! After the ride, there was a delicious champagne brunch waiting for us. My 3 friends and I could not have been happier or more impressed with this entire experience. Every staff member was willing to go above and beyond for us and they made sure to commemorate my birthday the greatest way possible! Cheers to Balloons Above the Valley- you guys rock!
