My husband and I opted to go all out and do the private ride, so it was just the 2 of us and the pilot in the basket. It was very cool!! The pilot was terrific and entertaining as well as professional. It was an experience I'll never forget and definitely recommend it to everyone!

This was an awesome experience. The people at Aloft do a great job with this adventure. It was my first time in a hot air balloon and I loved it. The baskets are a snug fit but you still have enough room to move. The balloon pilot had a good sense of humor and navigated well. I highly recommend. It... More

We went on a clear morning in late December! The staff was friendly and our pilot was awesome, we were in the air for about 90 mins and had great views of the valley throughout our flight. The basket carried 12 people, so had just enough space for everyone to stand, any more than that would have been uncomfortable. Overall,... More

We were worried initially that the weather and view will not be ideal in winter. The staff were friendly, the trip was enjoyable, the experience overall was great.

We, as a family, booked a balloon trip with Napa Valley Aloft and had momentous experience. Expensive, but well worth it. The customer care was superb. The pilot was very experienced and operated the balloon like a real pro. The preparation and the brunch with the pilot after the ride were exceptional. Our 7 year old grandson, who had reservations... More

We went on our balloon ride on 18/10/16 and our pilot was Pete. He as well as the whole staff was friendly, informative, making this a spectacular experience. We chose this company as it is family owned/run, in particular they have smaller numbers of people in the baskets. This makes for a better experience having 14 people in our basket... More

This was the highlight of our tour. Beautiful weather and sights. We could see San Francisco and the Golden Gate. This is a family business and a wonderful crew.

If you are fortunate to have the perfect weather at dawn, this will make you day or even your whole year. This group has this potentially dangerous activity tuned such that you are always comfortable and safe. The pilots are extremely well qualified, and the ground crews are equally capable of preventing a crash landing. I was impressed by how... More

This was our second balloon trip, the first with Napa Valley Aloft. For the most part, the staff and crew were professional, courteous and friendly. The only exception was a young woman arranging our group before boarding the balloon. She seemed disinterested in interacting and spoke in a soft, almost inaudible tone. When one of the group asked her to... More

Booked this experience for my hubby's 60th birthday celebration and want to go again....tomorrow, and the next day, and the next day...... From the minute we walked into the meeting area we knew we were in good hands. We were greeted warmly by a crew who obviously love what they do for a living. Warm tea, hot coffee and breakfast...
