This was a fantastic outing! Domaine Chandon is a beautiful winery and a perfect place to start and end a Hot Air Balloon ride! I spent time on uTube watching videos of hot air balloon rides people had taken in the wine country. Some just showed balloon rides over farm land or some type of land that was not interesting. I was looking for a company that floated over vineyards and the hillside and found Napa Valley Balloons! It was a gorgeous morning, clear sky and we floated over beautiful vineyard land. It was the perfect activity for me and my sisters - a memory maker. I 100% recommend this group.

What a way to see the Napa valley! This was a much better experience than what we expected, and a huge cross off our bucket list. We had a party of 8 and were with Pilot Bob (who is great). I would recommend a balloon ride to any and everyone going to Napa valley. The breakfast after the flight was excellent too.

An amazing experience. Once you see the balloons filling with air you will forget about the early morning hour. Exciting to see the first balloon lift off. Even more excited to have our balloon lift off. Up high enough to see the bay. Run by total pros. Can’t wait to do it again.

We couldn't fly over Napa Valley due to Fog, We were given the option to go to another area about an hour away (which they drove us to) or reschedule. We chose to go to the other site. It was a great experience, the staff very knowledgeable and I felt safe the whole time. Beautiful views and just a great experience, brunch was good too!

Amazing experience. Smooth flight and well worth the money for the experience. Great staff and after flight breakfast with mimosas sealed the morning. Highly recommend this company!! Can’t wait to see the photos from the GoPro pics in the sky.

Thanks for the experience, Bob!!

Celebrating our 25th Wedding Anniversary, my husband and I decided to splurge on a hot-air balloon ride over Napa valley. We were NOT disappointed! The staff did a great job from beginning to end of making the pre-flight, flight and after-flight special and a lot of fun. The views were amazing, we flew 6 miles and went up about 2,000 feet. Not scary at all, simply breathtaking! Worth the money!

We had a fantastic experience and would definitely recommend this! None of us had been up in a Hot Air Balloon before - what a great experience. Our pilot Mike and driver Patty were both wonderful, professional and fun! The sparkling wine brunch at Domaine Chandon was delicious!

Thoroughly enjoyed our flight over Yolo yesterday, Napa was socked in by fog, the bonus for being taken to Yolo was that there were 8 balloons. Caption Mike was informative, friendly, and safety-first. For those considering ballooning but who have some trepidation, my husband is not fond of heights. But the gondola's sides are chest-high and foster a feeling of security. Ballooning itself is gentle and quiet, except for (of course) the heating if the air in the balloon, which is not constant. Breakfast afterwards was delicious and the location lovely. A wonderful experience!

Had a great, above and beyond overall experience. I asked them about the proposal and they were able to assist in any way possible and were very nice. They placed us with Bob because he’s THE MAN and a fun captain. The pictures came out great thanks to Bob. Breakfast/Brunch was good and the mimosas were on point. The only “bad” thing was the weather was too foggy for Napa so we had to drive 45 minutes away to Yolo. They were nice enough to give us a heads up and an option to reschedule, but it was still gorgeous and an awesome experience that we will remember forever thanks to them.
