Upon arrival, we were given the opportunity to help fill the balloon. It didn't take very long before it was filled (maybe 15 minutes or so) and then we hopped into the basket and away we went. I am afraid of heights but this didn't bother me at all -- it was so gentle and we rose so soundlessly and... More

We had a mid-week stay in the Willamette to celebrate our anniversary and were disappointed that they usually only run on weekends and early in the week. Luckily, they were willing to open up booking on a day they don't normally run and ended up with quite a good showing of other balloon riders that day. What can I say?... More

Pierre and his cadre of pilots do a terrific job of show casing the Valley from their balloons. The flight is as much hands on as a passenger wants to make it. Catching a flight was easy from the Vista Balloon website. Pierre is responsive by phone and followed with a confirming email that is very informative as to what... More

This was a hands-on adventure. All passengers helped out in one way or another. John was super explaining everything about the balloon, steering, sights, history of the area, and made the trip wonderful.

We celebrated our son's graduation from college with a hot air balloon ride. With nine of us we were concerned about safety. Vista made sure we had the right size basket and balloon to do the job. Our flight assistant, Kelly, was professional and engaging. We had a great time, experienced something new, and lived to tell about it.

This was a unique and unforgettable experience for us. It was a beautiful trip and we spent a whole hour in the air. The pilot and crew made us feel very safe, so we could just enjoy the pure beauty of the surrounding area and the other hot air balloons. Afterwards, we had a delicious breakfast and mimosas.
