My Fiance and I decided to take our first ever balloon ride. I was so nervous to go as I am afraid of heights but I didn't even feel us going up it was so smooth. Once up there looking down at Sonoma and Napa Valleys was totally awesome. Our pilot was excellent. I would do this again in a heartbeat!

The whole family, 6 of us, including a 6-year old. Had a fantastic time floating with Bob as our pilot. Bob even let the 6-year old fire off the gas jets a few times.. He was so excited. It was great picking walnuts off the trees as we scraped across the tips. Real exciting finding a landing area & getting farmers permission to land in his field. The breakfast was 1st rate. Great organization, great employees. Try it, you'll love it.

We celebrated our California vacation with our first balloon ride. It was a fun and beautiful experience for both of us! The pilot was funny and well schooled.

We booked this vacation as an anniversary trip. We wanted to do something we had never done before....we were not disappointed! The view and weather were spectacular the morning we went. The basket was full, but totally comfortable. The trip is breathtaking and so peaceful as you float across the valley, with a bird's eye view. We took advantage of their special weekday discount rate, so make sure to check that out! As soon as we finished, we were taken back for an AWESOME breakfast buffet, with complimentary unlimited champagne! Make sure to buy at least 1 professional picture from them, as well. They will offer them at the breakfast. The cost is $20 and well worth the amazing memory!

Everyone we interfaced with from the drivers, to the organizer at the hotel, to the pilot, to the guys with the ropes at the end were WONDERFUL. What a great experience, everyone should try it once. A truly unique perspective from above the Valley. So glad we booked the trip. HIGHLY RECOMMEND IT.
