This is a wonderful way to start a morning in wine country. I did do my homework and read reviews before booking, and chose this company over the one my Hotel had dealings with. Im glad I chose Up and Away. Mike the owner was our captain on our flight. We had the chance to fly in the balloon designed... More

We took a flight on Christmas Eve morning. We met Daniel our pilot and the crew at the Sonoma Airport and headed out to find a place for take off. We found out Daniel had trained the balloon pilot that we had flown with in Tanzania, what a small world. Small group, the two of us along with Bill and... More

My wife and I were in Sonoma for wine-tasting and decided to try a hot-air balloon flight - it was the highlight of the trip. From the moment we booked Mike made the experience first class, the customer service, the flight and the champagne brunch afterwards were all excellent. We were lucky to have a perfect day for the flight... More

A few weeks ago I had the opportunity to fly with up and away. I must say it was one of the most exciting experiences I have ever had. Having lived in Sonoma county for over thirty years, to experience the view from a balloon over the vineyards is like nothing I have ever seen before. The fall colors and... More

Our day with Up & Away Ballooning started very early but was worth every second of it. We met the crew at the airport and helped set up the balloon. It was neat to be a part of the balloon process from start to finish. Once up in the air it was so peaceful and relaxing that we did not... More

I flew with Mike a few weeks ago and had a fantastic time. We got the most beauiful views of Sonoma county and the changing leaves in all the vineyards. We flew with Mike, the owner and head pilot. He was very professional and we all felt safe and relaxed the entire flight. The crew were efficient and friendly and... More

My wife and I were married in a hot air balloon over Sonoma County. Mike, the owner of Up & Away Ballooning, coordinated our flight and performed the ceremony. He took care of everything from planing the trip to my Wife's bouquet, and even a couple of surprises that made the trip extra special! This was our first time in... More

Mike at Up & Away Ballooning assures you will have a spectacular day. We had tried several times to fly; but the weather got in the way. It was apparent that this company is out to make you happy- not to make money. Even though it was disappointing, the first few tries it wasn't safe to fly. We had an... More

All the reviews you've read are accurate. This is a very well run yet still a very fun operation. The whole crew is very friendly and the pilots are excellent. I was amazed at how accurate these guys are at putting the balloons EXACTLY where the want them. We went from several hunderd feet up for a birds eye view... More
