Our family of 5 enjoyed our first ever balloon flight on Christmas morning. We met at the Marriott hotel where there were coffee and pastries and a safety talk. We went in minivans to the balloon launch site. The balloon was huge and was divided into quarters. Our family fit into one. The take off was smooth and the scenery... More

Our pilot Jake was very informative, professional and funny. He obviously has a passion for what he does, being a third generation balloon pilot. The whole crew was amazing, making the tour a one of a kind experience. Recommend highly.

We went on a balloon ride on Christmas morning. The crew were nice and the pilot was great. We only pd $159 for their holiday special. We were in air between 45-60 min. We met at the Marriott in Napa and returned their for an optional brunch. There were great views for pics. Remember to tip the crew/pilot.

When in Napa, you have to wake up early one day and take a hot-air balloon ride, it’s simply brilliant. Balloons Above the Valley is one of the companies offering the activity – very well organized, and a pretty good buffet breakfast gets thrown in at the end. Crisp morning weather is essential for full enjoyment, but your chances are... More

We rode Freedom captained by Jake. The views were breathtaking and we flew safe the whole time. After the balloon ride, we went back to the hotel for a delicious champagne breakfast. Make sure to include Balloons Above the Valley in your Napa planning!

Only downside was we could not... More

Everything went very smoothly and the instructor was very informative with what we were looking at and made us feel comfortable. We got lucky with a beautiful view and higher than normal heights allowing us to see further! I would absolutely recommend this as it is an early start allowing you to enjoy the rest of the day!

Everything about the experience was positive, nothing went wrong. Directions to the hotel where we were meeting were accurate and they were very friendly and welcoming when we got there with a light pastry and coffee bar ready. I am not a big crowd person and there were close to 100 people waiting. This was the only slight down fall.... More
