This was our third adventure in a hot air balloon. Once on the East Coast. Once is Albuquerque. and now this one in the Napa Valley. Another great experience. Our pilot, Jay, was informative and interesting. The flight went off without a hitch. No problems before, during, or after the flight. The actual flight was, obviously, the highlight, but seeing the preparation and the cleanup afterward was also interesting. Highly recommended for young and old. Only 11 passengers on our trip. The flight lasted 80 minutes (couldn't find the right landing place). Would definitely use this company again. The breakfast afterward was also very good.

I proposed in exclusive balloon flight for 2. Jay who was our pilot and such a wonderful character was perfect. He took us up high 4500 ft twice which was an experience you have to feel. Beautiful scene and touching top of the trees, passing on top of wine yards, it became a moment that i will never forget. Thanks to team on ground and people on the phone helping me. Breakfast was also wonderful after the trip with champagne and flapjacks !!!

We can't say enough about how much we enjoyed our first flight with this family of hot air balloon pilots. I was concerned with the heavy fog on our way to the Pope Valley for our flight. The valley we flew over was beautiful. Make sure you bring a camera to keep some memories of the experience!

What a way to enjoy Napa Valley. My wife and I were very lucky to go up after a week of rain and poor weather conditions! The skies cleared and we loved every minute of our ride! Nice to have the owner of the company as your pilot! Highly recommend this to anyone even if you are afraid of heights! The staff is very professional and attentive. Got a nice breakfast after the ride.

We were wowed this morning on our Napa Valley Aloft Balloon ride from v-marketplace parking lot over Yontville & into NW Napa park for the short van ride back. It was a stunning day. The pilot, Jim, was informative along the way over the vineyards & sites. A must do if you are in the area and want to get up early for the 0650 meeting point
