The most personalized, professional ballooning experience in the Sonoma County Wine Country. Gourmet brunch served in the gardens of Kendall-Jackson Winery after the flight. Best safety record.***Now wheelchair accessible***

I've taken two trips with Up & Away Ballooning. Both were excellent, and each had its own "flavor". My most recent trip had Armand as the pilot & he was great. He made the trip fun and exciting while also keeping us safe. I love...More

So glad you & your family enjoyed your Zen like experience with us! Floating above it all is definitely a serene & surreal adventure. Mother nature, as always is unpredictable and did provide an extended flight as our typical flight is 45-60 minutes. We think...More

Beautiful way to start a morning. Magical feeling floating above the vineyards. Bring a jacket as it is always cool in the morning. And don't forget to bring a camera!

Hot air ballooning is something I have always wanted to do and this was a great experience. An early start is required for optimum conditions so dress in layers. We were picked up at the designated meeting place and transported with a Starbucks detour to...More

For many years we talked about taking part in a hot air balloon ride. Well this was the year that we "stepped out of our comfort zone" and did this. There is not enough room in this review to compliment Up-Away Balloons. The entire morning...More

We were finished by 9:30am. We also had to travel a little farther that day due to fog in the original location selected. This is a great start to the day and it ends early enough to still do other activities.
