Watch the sun rise across Napa’s picturesque mountains and wineries from a gondola high in the sky! Our balloons are flown by experienced FAA pilots who know the valley VERY well, creating the SAFEST and most amazing experience. Napa Valley Drifters takes flight early mornings, seven days a week, weather permitting. Each trip offers the unique opportunity to experience the balloon’s inflation, take pictures, enjoy the sunrise, and end with a complimentary bottle of champagne from Napa Valley’s very own vineyard.

I waited too long to book our hot air balloon ride. The other companies were full. Then on our next-to-last day in Napa, I called around to see if there were any cancellations. There were none, but I found Napa Valley Drifters, which hadn't appeared...More

We weathered out Monday one, but day two was a go. They picked up at our hotel and took us to a launch site that gave us more air time than their competitors. They also used a 6 person basket. Despite only two reservations they...More

If you really want the pure adventure and experience of the hot air balloon ride, don't hesitate and go with this operator. They don't get distracted with the brunch afterwards so you're first up in the air! You get the sunrise, you get to see...More

The owner cancelled at the last minute at 5:00 AM in the morning and did not even mention the prior discussed back-up date. Extremely frustrating and poor service.
