Has an awesome time. The service was great and our pilot mike was very fun to be around
Breakfast was the finest touch on an already wonderful morning!
Our trip was wonderful, very cold in the morning, but warming up the whole time. Conditions were perfect, we flew nearly 7 miles, almost twice as far as usual for a one hour flight. Our excellent pilot answered all our questions about ballooning and kept us entertained the whole time. He expertly set the balloon down in a field, exactly where he pointed to about 20 minutes before landing, even "flaring out" with a blast on the burner just before touchdown, to make it a nice and soft landing. He took a lot of pics with a GoPro camera hanging outside the balloon, which was a very good idea, so you can pull out the best ones. At the end of the flight, we walked a quarter mile down the hill to get in vans that were waiting for us, but they let my dad ride in one of their trucks, which was thoughtful, since he is almost 90. Then it was a short ride back to the winery, for an excellent buffet breakfast with champagne. A truly memorable experience, all the way. It was very well organized, they had 88 people flying that day, but there was no waiting around, just get in the balloon and go! We felt we received excellent value for our money, and would do it again, in a heartbeat! Some of my best pics ever!
This is one of the best trips I’ve been on. A must do. You will not be disappointed. Crew, flight staff and experience perfection.
My girlfriend and I really enjoyed the hot air balloon ride! She said it was the best birthday gift she has ever received.
To be honest, the brunch was a little disappointing, as they quickly ran out of fruit.
Excellent organized trip; well prepared and friendly staff.
I would recommend this trip to anyone!
It was perfect! Waking up at 4am was worth it and I would do it again if I could! :) Everything and everyone involved in this balloon ride tour were amazing and made every minute memorable. 5-stars to all elements of this tour; the pre-flight coffee, flight, our pilot, our van driver, the welcome staff and post-flight breakfast.
It was wonderful. I would recommend it to anyone who thinks they might like it. It was perfect. They even picked us up at the hotel and took up up to the site. Our driver Gabe was really nice and answered everyone's questions. There was not even a bump on landing. After we got back he helped me with the picture download, Susan in the office was also especially helpful. I loved every minute.
