Wonderful! Our only disappointment was that we were unable to fly over Napa Valley due to weather conditions. However, that did not diminish the experience. Our balloon pilot was excellent.
It was everything I expected. The staff were friendly and well organized. Even with the change of location due to fog it was a lovely, fun trip. Elizabeth
This was the best part of our trip to San Francisco and Napa Valley. Our flight leader made everyone feel very comfortable. We were in the air for about an hour which was plenty of time to take in the scenery and take beautiful photos. The brunch after at the winery was very nice as well. This is a must-do.
The Air balloon was on my bucket list for many years. Im glad that I was able do to it with my husband during our visit to Napa early August 2016. Napa Valley Balloons is a great Company, the service provided was great. Before the flight they have pastries and coffee so you can wake up before the early flight. Also, when you return from the flight they have a buffet, champagne, mimosa, coffee and juice. While we were in the process of doing the flight, we felt very safe, the crew was in control of the situation. Our Pilot was excellent, his name was Ken. It was very evident that he knew what he was doing and we have no worries while we were on the air. The balloons have a GoPro camera and he took pictures of the crew while we were on the air. Those pictures were for free and sent to us via email the same day of the flight. I feel extremely satisfy with this tour that I decided to write a review, and Im very lazy to do this type of things.
The tour was amazing! We took this tour end of July and got to enjoy the sunrise over the Napa Valley. It is an early departure but it is totally worth the price and the early wake up. Our pilot, Ken was really knowledgeable about the area and everything you could think of asking about hot air balloons. You meet the team for checkin at the Domaine Chandon and enjoy some pastries and coffee before your flight. Then they drove us to a nearby golf course 5 min ride where the staff was getting the balloons ready. After 10/15 min, you get in your balloon and fly for 45 minutes. The views from above are just breathtaking! You feel like you are floating above the clouds when they are not blowing any hot air.
On your way back, you get to enjoy a brunch with bottomless mimosas!
Tip: the in-flight photos are included with the Viator package, this is a 15 extra if you didn't book with Viator
The hot air balloon ride from Domaine Chandon in Napa was perfect. Because of fog we were transported to Winter CA, an agricultural community in the area. Bob, our pilot, was very knowledgeable about what we were viewing in terms of the crops. Brunch -- an amazing ending
