It was too foggy the morning of our balloon ride (as is often the case in springtime Napa Valley), but they offered to take us up in Grand Valley over some really neat agriculture instead. Nobody balked at the chance to go up, and our pilot (and tour guide) made the trip really fun. They are very safe & knowledgable when it comes to the balloons, and the whole experience was one we will always remember. In fact it was the highlight of our trip to Napa besides the Wine Train.

PS - Their champagne brunch was delicious & hit the spot after an hour of FLYING!

It is definitely worth getting up before dawn to experience a balloon flight above Napa. The views were amazing, and any apprehension we had about being in a balloon was completely erased. Our pilot and all the staff were great, super nice, and very informative. I would highly recommend it to anyone, and have...we can't wait to do it again!

We were blessed with a beautiful day, everyone was on time and the crew & staff were wonderful. We met lots of delightful people, many who had never flown before. Everyone did great, our pilot was excellent and really knew how to handle our mega balloon.
You'll definitely need a jacket and your camera is a must. They do take your picture and provide a nice folder with your personal photo plus a great shot of the balloon.

I was a bit concerned that my slight fear of heights would cause my stomach to sink as we rose into the sky. I was pleasantly surprised to find that leaving the ground was incredibly smooth, no jerky movements, no sudden surprises; just a smooth, gradual float into the sky. The hour overlooking the valley with balloons in all directions went by faster than we expected. It is an experience that we expect to have again.
