We chose to celebrate our wedding anniversary with a sunrise hot air balloon ride. It's a very early start (5:15am) and takes a little while to get the balloon inflated and fully set up, but once you're up in the air, it's simply breathtaking. The views were stunning and it's such a relaxing experience. We went from floating right over... More

What a great morning! Everyone was pleasant and professional. The ride was amazing. Though it isn't the cheapest activity around, it's worth every penny. You even get a nice breakfast afterwards. I wanted to stay for a wine tasting, but we had plans in San Diego, so we had to bail before that could happen. Maybe that's one thing I... More

To fly in a hot air ballon across the beautiful Temecula valley, across the vineyards and into the sky was a superb experience . The staff were superb , well informed and a joy to ride with .

My wife surprised me with a sunrise hot air balloon ride for our 15th wedding anniversary. What an amazing experience! We were picked up by a driver from the company, enjoyed a ride above Temecula Wine Country, then treated to a light breakfast and mimosas. The balloon pilot and crew were very friendly and knowledgeable. Would definitely recommend California Dreaming'... More

I bought a surprise balloon ride for my husbands birthday. David and his crew worked hard to get us up before sunrise. We were up for an hour, David explained all about the land and mountains around us. After this amazing experience, we headed back for a beautiful breakfast prepared by his wife. Gorgeous place and views. They made the... More

I am not the biggest fan of heights or having my feet off solid ground. However, I thoroughly enjoyed this experience. This was an anniversary gift for my husband. We had a blast. We were about 3000 feet above sea level. The snacks after were fulfilling and peaceful. Our driver was the vineyard owner and highly knowledgable. Truly something to... More

Once in a lifetime adventure! Spur of the moment and last minute decision (under 24 hours) to take this adventure. Got a private balloon and the pilot was the owners son who has been doing this most of his life. The views are GREAT and the ride smooth as can be. Felt very secure and would HIGHLY recommend using this... More
