We booked the ride thru our hotel and were wonderfully surprised by the experience. We took our 6 year old daughter and I was a little worried she would be scared but she absolutely LOVED it. The staff were all really nice and made us and especially our daughter feel very comfortable. Our pilot was Bob and he is also the president. Could not have been nicer or more knowledgeable. He made sure everyone was happy and felt secure and took us up as high as we could go! 2000 feet!! An amazing experience. And when we landed, we got a fine breakfast of scrambled eggs, potatos, bacon, pastries, coffee, etc. Champagne and OJ too...at the end of it, Bob even gave our daughter a cool bubble tour he used in flight. A pricey adventure indeed but a great way to introduce a big adventure experience to our daughter and a beautiful family event. Definite must!

The employees were great. Owner was friendly & hospitable. Other guests were fun. Had to leave Napa & go to Dixon. Landed in sunflower field. Others in a berry patch. Brunch was delicious. Champagne offered excellent. Wine to go was really nice. Bought many souveniers & hope to take others up in the largest hot air balloon. I still think he should have his balloons spread across the country. 1 in Sedona, 1 in NYC, 1 in the mountains...

Check that off the "bucket list"! From pick up at the hotel to drop off at the hotel this experience was worth every penny. The staff and balloon pilot were helpful, friendly and infromative. Not only did they provide information on hot air ballooning, but also provided information and recommendations on Napa Valley. It was peaceful and an awesome experience. Never felt as if they were not in control, never felt unsafe. Take off and landing without any problems. Balloon pilot, Jeff, was funny and friendly. The restaurant where we had brunch provided a delicious food, the scones were to die for! HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS!

We had a great time on our balloon ride in Napa Valley. Everything about this company was very professional. From the start to the nice brunch at the end. Would totally recommend. Ask for Jonathan to pilot your balloon, he was fantastic.
