Ride cancelled due to fog
Abhijeet_V
, Jun 2021
Our ride was cancelled due to fog. Unfortunately, we were only informed at the point of pickup, which meant that we had to get up early, get dressed, and show up at the shuttle pickup point, only to be told the ride wasn't happening. I realize this isn't within the company's control but I wish they could just offer a ride the next day. They don't have any other takeoff times the same day, and their slots the next day were all booked. Since the ride happens so early in the morning we had made a weekend trip to Napa and stayed at a local hotel just for this ride, and were disappointed that it didn't happen with no way to rebook.

Thanks Abhijee for your feedback. As you mentioned we are weather dependent and while we want nothing more than to go fly, have fun and make money, your safety is always our first priority and we will not fly when the conditions are not safe. That said, on most days when it's foggy in the Napa Valley we have an alternate flight location that guests are invited to join us at. It can add a little time to your day but it's a beautiful flight and always a lot of fun. As for next day availability, that's a tough one. When we do have space, guests who were previously weathered out get priority but when we are already completely sold out, there's unfortunately not much we can do. I see you were booked through Viator, please reach out to Viator directly and they will refund you. I hope you get better weather the next time you decide to go ballooning. Please do remember that ballooning is weather dependent.

Request Bob as your pilot, 25+ years in the business and made my group very comfortable. He's very knowledgeable and witty. FYI, You will have to climb inside the basket (company will help if needed). The basket is sectioned off into 5 compartments. The company will fit up to 3 people in one section so it can be a tight squeeze. Definitely a bucket list ✔️

The experience is absolutely worth it ! Didn’t want to leave the sky , so peaceful . I do wish they offered pictures still , I think it’s totally possible beforehand to get some shots and maintain the social distance, also to have one up in the air would of been amazing ,damn covid.

I don’t think there is enough room to truly express how great of an experience we had. It was a clear day, so watching the sun rise over the mountain was nothing short of magical. Bob was our pilot for the ride and he was very cheerful, informative, and passionate. I went yesterday, and I am already making plans to come back with my family. Tip: if you are going in fall or winter, just be sure to bring a warm jacket, some gloves, and a scarf. You will want to get out of the van to watch the balloons blow up and it is cold.
