This was such a delightful experience! I decided last minute to go and they were super helpful hooking me up. I was picked up and dropped off at my hotel in Napa by one of the pilots. The ride was glorious and weirdly not scary at all! We all felt so safe. Quiet, warm, smooth, stable. Hard to believe we... More

My husband and I had the best time doing this! I thought it would be pretty enjoyable but was a little skeptical of how much fun it would actually be. We had such an amazing time. From beginning to end the whole team worked to make the experience as smooth and enjoyable as possible. Our balloon guide was Pete and... More

Weather was in our favor the day we booked. Fantastic experience. Basket was surprisingly roomy. Trip lasted about 45 mins. We opted for the breakfast afterwards. It was nice, but not sure it was worth $20.

My mom and I have wanted to go on a hot air balloon ride since I was a little kid. I found Napa Valley Aloft through Peek.com and booked the public sunrise tour. It was AMAZING. So happy we got to check this off our bucket list. The weather was cloudy but all the rain had turned the valley completely... More

This was by far the best part of our trip to Napa. The guides were very helpful in getting us ready and informed for our ride. Once in the balloon we had spectacular views along with great guided tour information from Pete our pilot. The tour lasted about an hour and was just enough time in the air. The champagne... More

My wife and I agree that our trip to Napa Valley tasting great wine was highlighted by our hot air balloon ride with Napa Valley Aloft. From the hotel pick up to soaring high above the Napa Valley, the staff was fantastic and our ride was worth every penny (times four). The day we went the fog kept us from... More

Fun for the whole family! Well organized! Everything is convenient. Ballon ride was beautiful and peaceful! Very reasonably priced. Take a balloon ride before you leave. Best way to see the Napa valley:)

This was our first hot-air balloon ride, an experience we had long hoped to indulge in. I had been fortunate enough to attend the Albuquerque Internation Balloon Festival a couple of years before which only piqued the interest. I clearly cannot compare the ride we took with Napa Valley Aloft (NVA) with any other operator or hot-air balloon ride. Nevertheless... More

Great service, 1 hour+ ride at more than 2000 feet above it all, informative pilot, and affordable price. What a great, bucket-list type of activity and a phenomenal way to see Napa Valley and the vineyards.

My husband and I opted to go all out and do the private ride, so it was just the 2 of us and the pilot in the basket. It was very cool!! The pilot was terrific and entertaining as well as professional. It was an experience I'll never forget and definitely recommend it to everyone!
