Going up in a hot air balloon has been on my bucket list since I was young, and I finally got to try it out! From start to finish, it was a wonderful experience! The staff was very professional, but very witty and playful. The pilot was friendly and very knowledgeable. At the end, they even let us all help... More

We had wonderful experience. We drove early in the morning from Bonzall. The Europa winery is really picturesque - Spanish style building with rose garden overlooking wine yard. Great place for special occasions. Our pilot Pete was amazing and very experienced. The entire crew is really hardworking. We really enjoyed the ride and breakfast in the winery. Highly recommend.

My wife took the girls for her birthday. What a great way to start the day. She loved it! $ 133 is pretty reasonable. Followed the ride with complimentary champagne back at Europa then home in time for breakfast.

My first hot air balloon ride! The morning started out foggy, so we looked for an alternate site to take off from. The staff apologized for the wait but explained the reasons why to all of us. Safety first, which made all of us novice balloon riders comfortable. The fog lifted so we could take off. It was a great... More

Great company very professional staff. You will be glad you booked A Grape Escape Balloon Tour. I booked a tour for my husband's 65th birthday 8-27-16. Rick checked us in (very nice polite young man) and he answered all of my questions without hesitation. Well it seems a low cloud cover developed, so our trip was cancelled. Although it may... More

Our pilot, Peter, was great. Very informational and friendly atmosphere. The pick up point is easy access and the mimosa at the end of the trip is a nice touch.
