Derek, owner and pilot, was great. The whole team (who knew it took so many people to do this) was there on time, explained things well and got us off the ground. The Wooden Shoe Tulip Fields were in full bloom, everything was green all around us. We went both high and low -it was cool to hover a couple... More

We were very lucky to have scheduled our flight on a sunny Oregon day, and starting at a tulip farm, the tulips at their peak. Derek and the crew were fantastic. The views were stunning and was wonderful to fly peacefully through the air, without the sound of motors, just the occasional roar of the flames. If you are looking... More

My wife asked if I wanted to do a wine tour at the end of our hiking trip in Oregon, I said "1 glass and I'm done, let's do something fun that we'll remember," well this was it. Derek, was an excellent host and confident pilot. He gave the traditional champagne toast afterward with a short balloon history lesson. We... More

This is a great place to check off your bucket list dream of riding in a hot air balloon over gorgeous countryside.

This is something I've been wanting to do for a long time and my husband gave me this mini-adventure for a birthday present. The pilot, Derek, and crew, Neil, were professional, friendly, informative, and clear with directions (important for a first time ballooner like me) and we had a fabulous morning. Everyone on the ride becomes a part of the... More

One of the things on my bucket list was a hot air balloon ride. In researching best places to experience this, I found that a balloon ride in Willamette Valley was pretty high up there. We found Portland Rose on Yelp, and based on other reviewers on both Yelp and Trip Advisor, we decided to go with Derek (our pilot)... More

What a great time this morning with Derrick (pilot) and team. Perfect morning for a trip up through the clouds. Perfect landing close to launch point. Nice champagne/Juice toast with history of Hot air ballooning. Thanks, especially enjoyed helping set up and fold up. Great experience.
