Our daughter and grandkids gave us the trip as thanks for coming to visit and helping out on the farm. Its was a very overcast day so our pilot was very apologetic. He said he'd make up for the lack of view and scenery with a little excitement. We went up and down the Tualitin River. Said he'd seem some... More

I've now ridden with Vista on two separate balloon rides and both were amazing and inspiring experiences. I loved being in the balloon as well as having such a different perspective on everything below me. Vista has everything dialed in and are very professional and clearly experts at what they do. Fantastic experience that I can't recommend highly enough!

My friend and I had an amazing flight experience! It was a picturesque view of over 6 mountains along with the quilted pattern of the Willamette Valley. Our pilot was stellar and the crew made it very fun.

The Balloon ride was an excellent bonding experiencing. I was looking for an adventure to share with a loved one and this ride fulfilled my hopes. We watched as the balloon was unpacked and inflated. We loaded up and launched in a very short time. The ride was very pleasant. The views were spectacular. Our pilot, Robert showed us that... More

We left Newborn and went up to 1800 ft, then south and down to the river, then back up to 1800 ft and across the farm land. I wish the flight could have been longer. We only traveled 5-10 miles from the start.

Thank you for your feedback, we're glad you enjoyed the experienced. Balloons only fly as fast as the wind will take them, and in the approx. one hour flight you had with us the winds were blowing at 5-10 miles per hour. Thanks again for spending the morning with us! More

We had a BLAST, normally, heights kind of bother me, but this ride / flight was so stable and smooth that it didn't feel any different than standing on the ground. The entire staff was friendly and ready & willing to be informative and helpful with safety in the front of their mind. The ride lasted for about an hour... More

A balloon ride has been on our bucket list for years. Had the opportunity to win this trip for 2 at a fundraiser auction for our grandson's high school band - then added 2 extra spots for him and his brother. Beautiful day, perfect in every way. Our pilot, Kelly, made the trip interesting and fun with her commentary. Don't... More

This was a great experience. My husband loved being able to be part of the balloon preparation at the beginning and the take down at the end of our flight. All the staff are so friendly and the pilots very knowledgeable. The champagne brunch at the end was so tasty. We would recommend this experience to family and friends.

This package involves a flight followed by a brunch. You are expected to help ready your balloon and gondola for flight, and the entire sequence from that to launch is a whirl of sounds and motion. The rise to apex is accompanied by the blast from the propane burn, but thereafter, the flight's only inanimate sound is the occasional blast... More
