We took our trip (4 of us) on July 5, 2013. If you are considering a balloon flight, look no further than Up & Away. This is a first class experience. Mike and his crew were fantastic and a class act. (BTW - You get to help inflate the balloon which is part of the fun) The entire trip from beginning to end was much better than any of us could have imagined. If you are afraid of heights, dont worry. We had one in our group that also has a fear of heights and I cannot look over the edge of a building without feeling queasy. There is no sensation of height, so we were absolutely fine. Its like an enhanced view from Google Earth. I learned a lot about ballooning on this trip. Mike was our pilot and was chock full of information and anecdotes about ballooning, the areas we were flying over, etc. When the trip is over, the balloon gets packed up and then we all head to a winery for a champagne brunch. The food was great and the hospitality continues as they have a whole crew there to make sure you get your fill. It is a family owned and operated company and and you really get a welcome feeling. You can even tell that the employees care as much as the owners. Once the brunch is over, you also get a free wine tasting at the winery, if you want. (No obligation) We took advantage of that as well and had a great time. To sum up, don't wait, just do it. You will not regret it.
