We flew yesterday at sunrise with captain Bob who was funny, friendly and an absolute pro. I took my 2 friends as my "surprise" to them and it was their first time in a balloon. We all had an incredible time. The views were spectacular as we floated at 4000 ft. Bob took tons of pics on the go-pro and... More

Check in at the reception area located at Domaine handon in Yountville by 6 am, launch from a nearby driving range. the balloons rise into the dawn air over the picturesque Napa Valley wine growing region. With enough altitude, we caught the morning breezes which took us on a lazy circuit around the Southern half of the valley. We were... More

My husband and I were in Napa to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary. I have long had a hot air balloon ride on my bucket list and this was the perfect way to check it off the list. Our pilot - Bob - has years of experience as a balloon pilot and landed us on a narrow strip of land... More

Went up, up and away over the Napa Valley on 11/17/16 and it was so majestic, breathtaking, exhilarating and just plain FUN! Dan, our driver who picked us up at the Best Western at The Vines, was so pleasant, knowledgeable and helpful. His stories about the Napa Valley history provided the perfect background for our balloon ride. Bob Swanson, our... More

Going up on a balloon is kind of a bucket-list experience. Something you have to do at least once in your life. The staff is very kind and the overall experience is great. I recommend it very much.

My boyfriend booked us a hot air balloon ride for my champagne birthday. The entire experience with the staff was wonderful, from the check in, to the set up process, flight and mimosa breakfast. Only downfall was having the take off location changed from the valley to somewhere 45 minutes away, due to fog. I respect the fact that it's... More

Very well run and organized. Safety was always priority and then full enjoyment. Great team of workers and pilots. Had to shift location for safety but not a problem at all. This was a ride and experience of a lifetime! A must do on your list of adventures!

A basket full of very happy people. 20 people plus the driver. wow we were packed in like sardines. Warm and cozy. Wow, great views and not too high so could see the vines and great views. Lots of photo shots. Over too fast for me. I could have floated for hours if not all day. Love to do it... More
