One of the best anniversary celebrations we have ever had! We celebrated our 36th anniversary with a balloon adventure. Our pilot Kelly was outstanding! There were 9 of us, 11 with the pilot. The basket is quite large, plenty of room for all of us. The ride was smooth, comfortable, and FUN! My husband and I have never flown in a hot air balloon. It will be hard to top this one. Everything about our trip with Vista was excellent. They communicate with you several times in the days before your flight to make sure you know the location and time to meet. We loved helping the crew "blow up" the balloon. At the end we also helped pack up the balloon. What an exciting, amazing experience. We HIGHLY recommend scheduling a flight with Vista Balloon Adventures when you are in the Newburg, Oregon area. It was a short drive from our B & B in Dundee. A fantastic addition to wine tasting. Thank you Kelly and the entire Vista Balloon Adventures team.

What an amazing experience! We floated over the valley as the sun rose with views of the mountains to the north and east. The "splash and dash" where the pilot lowered our balloon basket to "kiss" the water was very special.

Absolutely breathtaking. This was a bucket list tour on our family trip to Oregon. It was a lot of fun to watch the balloon be inflated. We were in a basket that held 8 people and were paired with another family of 4. Our captain, Rod, was very experienced and knowledgeable. He even took the balloon for a "dip and dash" on the river. Watching the sunrise over the mountains was spectacular. Loved seeing the Willamette Valley from above. The teens helped pack up the balloon at the end of the flight. Highly recommend this once-in-a-lifetime tour. Even our teens loved it.

A wonderful experience! Purchased this event for my Mom's 80th birthday last year and while our celebration had to be cancelled a couple of times due to high winds and unsafe conditions, today it happened and it was FABULOUS! So appreciate that the whole crew had our safety in mind and made our experience MEMORABLE!

We have been looking forward to our hot air balloon ride so much but it was canceled last minute - not weather related! We fully accept that rain or wind would impact our ability to fly but it is a bright clear day. The reason we were given was the fields were too muddy. It has barely rained all week. If this was the case, they would have known this well in advance and I could have booked elsewhere. To say we are disappointed would be an understatement and to cancel a private tour pretty last minute via text is really terrible service. Beware.

Hello Jessica, we feel your disappointment. Ours was also significant because this was a sold out day. While it did not rain on May 21, we experienced record breaking rain prior to that day: April and May were the wettest on record in the area since 1940. With that much rain, the farmland we land on takes days of dry weather to drain and dry. We cannot drive on saturated fields or field roads to retrieve our balloons without causing damage or stranding our vehicles (and passengers). An inspection of the fields and roads led us to the decision to cancel and provide you with a full refund two days before your flight via text (and email), as you had requested at the time of your online booking. We have flown in the area for over 30 years, and pride ourselves on the decisions we make to ensure passenger, crew, and pilot safety as well as the protection of private land. Being stuck in ankle deep mud is not an experience you should pay for!

This was an outstanding experience from start to finish. Booking was simple, communications leading up to the flight were good, and the flight was unforgettable. I enjoyed being part of the action from the preflight setup and post flight recovery. Andrea aboard Mystic and her chase crew were great--this is a perfect way not only to experience the peace and serenity of lighter-than-air flight, but to learn all that goes into this sport. Highly recommended.

Everything about this experience was fantastic. Friendly, professional people on the ground and piloting the balloon. Awe-inspiring beauty. Magical flight. We were both nervous and slightly scared of heights, but the ride was so smooth and gentle that all anxiety quickly melted away. Our pilot was extremely competent and kind. Helping inflate the balloon at the beginning and helping to pack it away at the end was also quite fun! To finish the dreamy ride off with beautiful champagne toast with the owner and delicious buffet breakfast in the field was icing on the cake. It was a most memorable and joy-filled morning. I can't recommend it highly enough.

Interaction with flyers and pilot was great. Flyers encouraged to get involved in unloading and loading the balloon. Perfect weather. Actual touch down on the Willamette River. Beautiful.

Just back from an amazing Vista Balloon Adventure. This was a bucket list experience gift from my partner for a big milestone birthday. Always a risk those bucket list experiences will fall short of expectations. Definitely not the case here. Just us and our awesome pilot, Kelly, soaring above Oregon farmland and wine country on a spectacular summer day. Pierre (the business owner) and his son Garrett served as our ground crew and were fun and incredibly hospitable. Everyone associated with the Vista operation -- including the many capable volunteers -- radiated friendliness, helpfulness, and core competency. The devil, they say, is in the details. These folks get those details right -- from the moment you lay eyes on the balloons getting ready to sail at sunrise to the last bite (and sip) of the terrific post-flight champagne brunch. First rate all the way!!!

My husband and I went on the Mosaic Balloon which only holds two passengers plus the pilot, so we had a private experience with the balloon ride to ourselves which was a surprise as we got this wonderful upgrade. The colorful balloon was beautiful, as your looked up through the center past the burners it looked like looking into a kaleidoscope. We had lovely views of luminous Mt. Hood, Mt. Jefferson, Mt. St. Helens, Mt. Rainier, and 3 Sisters, as well as Hagg Lake and we floated along above the Willamette River. We came down to the surface of the Willamette River which provided a lovely reflection of our balloon and even us briefly. The nearby treetops loomed around us as we glided down to the waters surface. The champagne brunch was delicious including a salmon dip and crackers, yogurt with all the trimmings, quiche, and delectable brownies. Thanks to our wonderful pilot and crew we were set down alongside a corn field after gently gliding through the tops which was rather fun as my family used to grow corn.
