We, as a family, booked a balloon trip with Napa Valley Aloft and had momentous experience. Expensive, but well worth it. The customer care was superb. The pilot was very experienced and operated the balloon like a real pro. The preparation and the brunch with the pilot after the ride were exceptional. Our 7 year old grandson, who had reservations... More

We went on our balloon ride on 18/10/16 and our pilot was Pete. He as well as the whole staff was friendly, informative, making this a spectacular experience. We chose this company as it is family owned/run, in particular they have smaller numbers of people in the baskets. This makes for a better experience having 14 people in our basket... More

This was the highlight of our tour. Beautiful weather and sights. We could see San Francisco and the Golden Gate. This is a family business and a wonderful crew.

If you are fortunate to have the perfect weather at dawn, this will make you day or even your whole year. This group has this potentially dangerous activity tuned such that you are always comfortable and safe. The pilots are extremely well qualified, and the ground crews are equally capable of preventing a crash landing. I was impressed by how... More

This was our second balloon trip, the first with Napa Valley Aloft. For the most part, the staff and crew were professional, courteous and friendly. The only exception was a young woman arranging our group before boarding the balloon. She seemed disinterested in interacting and spoke in a soft, almost inaudible tone. When one of the group asked her to... More

Booked this experience for my hubby's 60th birthday celebration and want to go again....tomorrow, and the next day, and the next day...... From the minute we walked into the meeting area we knew we were in good hands. We were greeted warmly by a crew who obviously love what they do for a living. Warm tea, hot coffee and breakfast...

My husband and I booked weeks in advance,to celebrate NAPA and our 35th anniversary. It could not have been more perfect - we opted out of the breakfast afterwards as we had previously booked elsewhere - had the most amazing pilot JASON who not only got us up and viewing NAPA but brought us down spot on. Not only was... More

My husband and I visited Napa for our anniversary and this was on my bucket list. My husband is seriously afraid of heights and I told him that he didn't have to go, but he insisted. I thought (as did everyone there) that he was going to have a panic attack. But he ended up loving it and he was... More

JT was an excellent, professional and very experienced guide with fun stories and and a good sense of humor. He was very safety aware (and with all the news just before we took this trip on balloon crashes this was appreciated). We went to an alternate location because there was fog in the normal launch location. In our compartment it... More
