This was a bucket list and birthday event. We loved it from start to finish. We can't say enough about the pilot and the ground crew. They were so gracious and helpful. The ride was life experience. We saw the sunrise over the vineyards and wild life down below us. We would highly recommend California Dreamin. It was awesome!

Great, friendly experience. This was my second time in a hot air balloon; the previous time I took my grandma up in one for her 80th birthday over Del Mar. This time, however, I was able to see exactly how the tarps are laid, the balloons are inflated, and how they are guided via landing lines once the ride is over. Josh was our pilot, and he made everyone happy when he replied "13 years" to my query of "How long have you been doing this?" We had a great flight, though didn't move to far from our takeoff site, because the winds were very mild; but then again, we didn't want too much wind blowing us all over the place! The ground crew really earn their pay, and everyone was friendly. We also met some cool people, enjoyed some mimosas & extra champagne after the flight. Lastly, we took advantage of 2-for-1 wine tasting tickets, and returned to the Windemia Winery around noon, and did some more tasting!
