Very professional, organized, knowledgable, and kind organization. I've been to Napa several times but have never experienced it like this! Spectacular views of the valley, but also really fun to see them prepare the balloons, learn a little about how they work, see how they...More

They picked us up around 5:00 in the morning. Visibility wasn't clear, so we had to drive an hour away to another site not in Napa Valley. I do not recommend that site. Views are not that great.
