“bucket list!”
Reviewed March 4, 2014

One of my favorite experiences... ever! My husband and I did this for our 1 year anniversary. You float over napa valley in a giant basket with another 15 people. The basket is divided into 4 sections. Usually 2 couples into a section. We saw people get married in a basket next to us! Another couple got engaged. Obviously very happy times. The views are amazing. The weather is great and if you're lucky they'll even dip you a little into a lake. This is definitely something every one should do. The champagne brunch afterwards is a nice touch as well. They'll take GO PRO camera pictures of your group so that you can keep it as a keepsake later - worth it! We got around 10 pictures for the price of $15.

“Up, up, and away.....”
Reviewed March 4, 2014

Bob our pilot made the trip from the moment we left the ground. We were to lucky to have a beautiful day, we traveled 7 miles landed in a park. We received some beautiful in flight photos, fantastic champagne at the end and a balloon ride we will never forget. Thanks Napa Valley Balloons for making our trip to wine country perfect!

“Best part/ Best Choice Ever”
Reviewed February 24, 2014

This company is amazing. I want to say out pilot's name was Bob, i'm drawing a blank, i'm sorry. But this was by far one of the most memorable experiences me and my wife will ever have. We went over our Anniversary weekend and made memories to last us a life time. This is defiantly one of those must haves before you die. First of all they cam and picked us up and took us to the golf course. We stayed 20 mins outside of Napa and they had no problem picking us up. We then ate some snacks and went up in the air. We went farther then Bob said anyone really does. We went 12 miles and ascended to 3000 ft in the air. Bob said the air and breeze was right and he wanted us to enjoy our trip. 18 of us went up in the balloon on that cold Oct 9th morning, but man was it worth it! I was put off by the price like i'm sure many others are but my wife convinced me to do it and boy am i glad we did. I would recommend this company over any others. It seems like they have their stuff together. Not to mention at breakfast i hammered down many mimosas and your suppose to sip those drinks :) But they were oohh so good! I suggest you do it, if your on the edge i hope my review helps!

“Amazing Experience!!”
Reviewed February 19, 2014

What an unbelivable experience at the Napa Valley Balloons. Our pilot was Mike and he was outstanding. He was etremely skilled at flying the balloon, taking us across some amazing scenery. He did a fabulous job of landing the balloon as well. I would highly recommend to anyone wanted to experience a spectacular ride with amazing views to try Napa Valley Balloons. The staff was very personable and made our experience one we will never forget.
