The staff was amazing and the pilot, Chad was excellent! Beautiful views among the clouds and over the vineyards. The champagne breakfast afterwards was a great way to end the journey.

I've probably tried almost every adventure company in napa and ballooning is one of my favorite things to do. This wasn't my first time hot air ballooning but it was still an amazing experience. Great staff, great food, and amazing views

We had a great morning with just enough fog so pictures were awesome and light winds so sailing was smooth. Pilot Jake treated us well.
