“Outstanding adventure”
Reviewed May 6, 2008

LOVED THIS! Not just the ride (which was fantastic), but also the customer service. We had so much fun! We chose the option of having the hotel pickup down in Fisherman's Wharf--who wants to drive at 5:15 am?! Neilson picked us up and drove us to the launch site. A local's knowledge is a wonderful thing. We found out more about the area than had we done an internet search! We had an amazing ride, pilot was Laura. Very safe and very exciting. Landing was good and brunch was nicely done as well.

My husband and I had a little time to walk around, then Neilson took us back to the city. We learned even more about the area and got to experience the steepest street without being the ones doing the driving!

Overall-EXCELLENT! Would definitely recommend this company to anyone.

“A neat, unique experience”
Reviewed April 29, 2008

The whole experience was very nice. We began with a 1-hour ride, which was followed by a nice champagne brunch. The ride was nice, we had clear weather. Our guide pointed out all of the area's sights, and having grown up in Napa, painted a nice picture of how the area looked 40 years ago!

I would definitely recommend seeing Napa from a balloon, and I would recommend Napa Valley Aloft for that purpose.

“A terrific experience...”
Reviewed October 5, 2007

The last week of September 7 of us ventured with Mark over the Napa Valley in his hot air balloon. What a fabulous experience !! We witnessed the sun rising in the east, the full moon setting in the west, and the lush vineyards below. The day was so beautiful weatherwise that Mark kept us aloft an extra 1/2 hour. Smooth sailing from lift-off to landing. The delicious, celebratory champagne breakfast at Compadres was the perfect ending to a lovely morning.
