Hot Air Balloons- Calistoga balloons vs Napa Valley Balloons

I am planning a trip to Napa and would like to do a hot air balloon ride. I am torn between Calistoga Balloons and Napa Valley Balloons. Both seem to have an equal number good and bad reviews. This is something I have wanted to do for a while and do not want it ruined by a negative experience. Any thoughts or advice is much appreciated.

Also the difference in location is not an issue.

I am having the same issue! Some really negative reviews with no good alternatives. What did you decide? Any advice?

I decided to book with Calistoga balloons. It seems to be a very different experience and area they fly over. From what I can find they are the only company that flys in the Calistoga area vs the Napa Valley area. I am not going until the end of September so I will try to remember to post my experience. When are you planning on going?
