My husband purchased a balloon trip for my birthday in July 2015. We had to reschedule a few times due to wind and weather, which is understandable and out of anyone's control. However, communication from the business has slowed and ultimately stopped in December 2015. We have attempted contact by email and left voicemail messages to schedule a new time,... More

Hi Holly, Our records show that you emailed us on 12/11/15 about booking and we responded with some possible booking dates the very next day on 12/12/15. We never received an email back from your party until 6/24/16 in which you asked us to advice you about your voucher and stated that if we did not reply to your email... More

This adventure is a lot of fun, but you will have to be patient with booking. The flight is very dependent on the weather conditions, which can change quite a bit due to the area that they fly in is between two mountain ranges. We had to book 3x before we could actually fly, because the weather conditions were not... More

I purchased two vouchers, for myself and my husband in February 2015. Read below for the consistent frustration with this merchant. But the tipping point for me with this vendor was when I tried make a reservation for a weekend in October 2015, only to be told that my booking had been rejected because the terms of LivingSocial voucher was...

This was way more fun than I expected. It was very smooth and safe, with great views across the valley, sometimes up to 800 feet and sometimes at treetop level. I might do it again. The landing involved a bit of a jolt, but we were warned about that in advance and were well braced. I loved it.

I have been thinking of taking the Hot Air Balloon for number of years & came across the Groupon deal which made it affordable for me. Booking a flight: Booked for a date from their website. The site said "Flight is ON" and we reached after driving 85 miles. Weather was Good but somehow the flight couldn't take off due... More

Highly recommend this! First let me tell you that it was my first ever hot air balloon ride, but I have dreamed of doing it since I was 5, and when I learned my dad also wanted to do it, I decided his October birthday would be the perfect time. And although it was perfect, it wasn't perfect enough because... More

I bought a groupon for a balloon ride with this company. We tried 3 times to make the flight and it was canceled each time... can understand when it is weather related but this last time, a more perfect day could not be had... no wind.. blue skies so we were quite surprised when we got to the meeting site...

From the moment we met Cap'n Dan we felt at ease. My husband and I decided to something different for our 36th anniversary, and choose Valley Hot Air Ballooning for some excitement and special memories. We had to reschedule a couple times due to poor weather conditions, which I appreciated. He explained each phase of the ride for us, from... More

April easily rescheduled us after I had an unexpected business trip. We got to the meet up site after spending the day exploring the area. There had been a few pop up storms that day so we had to wait a little longer to see if it would be safe to go up. Finally, we got the go ahead. The... More
