This is the top thing I asked for with my birthday celebration in wine country. Starting with fresh baked scones upon arrival at our meeting point, the morning could not have gone better. Our pilot/guide Armand was professional, thoughtful, personable and took great care of us as did the entire ground crew. It was a wonderful birthday morning I will... More

My girlfriend bought this experience for us as she knew it was high on my bucket list. The morning started (at 05:30) by walking up the back stairs of the 'Shed' in Healdsburg . . . in comparison, a poor reflection of what was to follow over the next few hours. The welcome introduction and brief was accompanied by an... More

Going up, we actually had to scramble to get into the basket and then we almost ran into a fence. It was noisy and hot going up and there seemed to be only minutes when it was quiet. The scenery was lovely but given the noise and heat, once was enough.

We came down from Vancouver for a conference in San Francisco. On a whim, came down a day early to spend a day in Sonoma but decided to start our day with a balloon flight. It was a great morning, so organized, very friendly and knowledgable staff, felt safe and truly amazed by the view from above.

I purchased tickets to do this as a Christmas present for my wife. I live in Sonoma County and I wanted to find something that tourists come here to do that we haven't already done. When I found a Sonoma County tourism page, at the top of the list was hot air ballooning. Perfect! We met the crew at the... More

We took the opportunity to fly with this company and we were so happy with the experience. Our pilot was exceptional and handled the balloon in a safe and assuring way. The after brrunch was delicious and held at a local winery with home cooked food...wonderful.

Our wine country trip was made complete with our fabulous balloon experience with Up and Away Ballooning! Mike was very helpful and accommodating to make sure we were able to fly the week we were visiting, right down to helping us decide which day to book so that a weather wouldn't be a factor!! The crew was so friendly and... More

Up and Away did an amazing job, we had such a terrific time with them. What we really loved was how inclusive the entire experience was. After picking us up from the airport and getting us to the take-off point, the staff included all of us throughout the process of getting the balloons laid out and inflated. Once up in... More
