What an awesome experience! Truly unique, memorable, and fun. Bob was a great guide---very knowledgeable and quite the sense of humor! The pictures he took turned out FABULOUS and they were emailed to us by the end of the day. Highly recommended!

Our party of six booked a private balloon flight on a Saturday morning, and it was the highlite of our weekend. A shuttle van picked us up at our hotel at 5:30 AM and shuttled us to Domaine Chandon Winery for a continental-style breakfast of muffins, fruit, jiuce and coffee. After a brief wait, we were shuttled to an adjacent golf course driving range to watch the six balloons they had going up that day begin the inflation process. Within about 20 minutes of arriving at the drving range, we were escprted to our ballon, and within about 3-4 minutes we were airborne and heading south over the Napa Valley. We've done balloon flghts before, but this one was the best so far. Great flight, wonderful conditions, and the scenery was spectacular (all told, there were probly 12-15 other ballons in the air that morning through out the valley). Our landing as like a butterfly touching down on a daisy...smooth and flat! After the flight, we were shuttled back to Domaine Chandon Winery for a ful breakfast, bacon, eggs, sausage, potatos, fruit, mimosas! They ask for you to commit 5 hours for the whole experience (in case they have to travel to alternate launch sites because of wind), but we were done and back at our hotel about 3-1/2 hours after they picked us up. Highly recommended!

Having lived in Bay Area 40 years and made many trips to Napa, I had never gone ballooning so my lovely wife gave this to me for Valentine's day. So nice, since she is afraid of heights.
Anyhow we had a wonderful day. Very well organized, competent company took off from Domaine Chandon with Bob as our very experienced pilot (27 years experience) and excellent support staff. Took the fear out of the experience for my wife. Great trip, easy landing, lovely views, wonderful breakfast. Worth the cost.

Bob was a wonderful pilot. Our balloon was the first to go up and we traveled an entire 12 miles over the most scenic views we have ever experienced. Although it costs a lot, it is something worth every penny. A life time experience. The crews bent over backwards for us, and we very professional.

Great ride with Bob and Tequila (name of his balloon). Bob was a lot of fun and kept us informed and entertained - not that you need entertaining with the views! The whole experience was timed and coordinated so well - the staff really has it down to a smooth science. Breakfast and champagne were excellent. I agree with others that it was worth the price.
