Great experience. We had a talented and knowledgeable captain, Daniel, which relieved any worries at all and made for a relaxing and breathtaking trip. If you are in Napa, you should definitely put a hot air balloon trip with Calistoga Balloons on your priority list. You won't regret it!!

This was our first time in a hot air balloon and it was a great experience. Daniel our pilot was very friendly and has had many years of flying experience which calmed any nervousness we had. We met Daniel at 6:45am along with the other couple flying that morning and they took us to the launch site at the Geyser.... More

We had a very lovely balloon ride last week. Our pilot Daniel was funny and knowledgeable and reassuring. I'm pretty scared of heights, but the ride was so smooth and peaceful, I didn't feel afraid at all. We went up over 7,000 feet, which I guess only happens like twice a year, so that was pretty cool. We rode in... More

To celebrate our 25th anniversary my husband and I decided to take a hot air balloon ride while we were visiting wine country in Calistoga, CA. We were able to sign up for the ride the day before. The woman at the desk (don't remember her name) was very accommodating and provided us with all the necessary information to have... More

We couldn't fly over Calistoga on the morning of August 19 2016 because of the wind. Dan our pilot suggested another valley we might try. We did fly and it was spectacular. I would recommend this balloon ride.

We were hoping to fly over the Geyser but were told upon our arrival by the pilot that we could not fly out of Calistoga and they were taking us over the mountain to Santa Rosa. Apparently this happens more often then not and makes me feel that they should make this clear when you book the trip. Its a... More

Well to start off our hotel recommended them to us and said we would receive a 10 percent discount. They did not honor their agreement with our hotel. No discount. They were suppose to pick us up at our hotel at 5:30 AM. They didn't come. I finally reached the pilot and he said he was not notified of any... More

This was an incredible experience. The staff was friendly, organized and fun even at 5:45 am! My wife is afraid of heights, but this was on her bucket list. The flight did not bother her at all.
