Great early morning adventure! We met at Chandon for intercontinental breakfast. Then loaded into van for a short ride to take off location. Hopped in basket and took off for a cruise over the valley!

Had a great flight - perfect weather and a really nice post flight champagne brunch! Suggestion- the pilots could have spent less time talking to each other and more time talking to the passengers. And found the office staff quite rude on the phone.

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.
