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. The crew was so fun and easy to work with and really made the experience enjoyable and memorable. I had both the thrill of adventure and feeling of security during the whole trip, and I enjoyed being a... More

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.

One of the things on my bucket list was to go hot air ballooning. So my cousin and I did just that last Sunday with Portland Rose Hot Air Balloons. We watched/helped set up the enormous balloon (which was quite interesting) in Woodburn and then flew back over the Willamette Valley to the Aurora Airport. It was an absolutely beautiful... More

Derek and crew were phenomenal. It made for a grand celebration, we were out celebrating a birthday. You are part of the whole experience from start to end. It was more than just riding a balloon, cause Derek told us all about the area as we floated along. Our weather was perfect and that made for a beautiful and long... More

Had a great time with Derek this morning. Location was easy to find and not too far outside of Portland. We were involved in the preparation and take down of the balloon which was really fun. Sights were AMAZING! Saw a number of mountains just as the sun was rising. Couldn't ask for a better way to start the day.... More

I have been wanting to take a trip on a hot air balloon for years, and finally went on my birthday. Derek was very responsive to all my questions and was able to get me a spot right on my birthday! It was a magical ride, gorgeous views, and once the sun started breaking through the clouds it became surreal.... More
