Overview
Napa Valley’s rolling hills, expansive vineyards, and elegant estates make for a stunning sight to see; however, it’s easy to overlook the scenery while popping in and out of wineries. This hot-air balloon ride from Domaine Chandon allows you to take in views of Napa from the air, while leaving time for winery visits on your own afterward. This hot-air balloon tour comes with pre-flight snacks and a buffet breakfast.

This was on my girlfriends bucket list and I surprised her with it when we were in Napa. We both loved it! The staff was great and we did the wine tour after. I recommend it.

Weather was perfect as was the crew and views. We needed up over in Sonoma and had a bit of a bumpy landing but it was part of the experience. Really great morning. Breakfast was buffet style- nothing spectacular but did the trick. Definitely recommend.

Even though we had to drive an hour because of the fog, that didn’t attract from the experience. At no time did I feel unsafe, everyone was very helpful and friendly. My first hot air balloon ride and hopefully will not be my last.
