A wonderful adventure. Armand our pilot was great and showed us a beautiful, peaceful and fun ride this morning. Hats off to him and his crew. Would definitely recommend doing this and with UP & Away to anyone.

We had the most amazing hot air balloon ride followed by a wonderful breakfast with champagne! The pilot was experienced, knowledgeable and most importantly FUN! I highly recommend Up & Away Ballooning, it was one of the coolest things I have ever done!

To be above the sights of Santa Rosa and see things so clearly was wonderful. You can hear the cows mooing below and see deer running around the hillsides. Fantastic trip.

Amazing experience, beautiful and serene - worth the early morning wake up! We went for my 40th birthday. They accommodated my mom who is aged and had some trouble getting in to the basket. I highly recommend this adventure!

Our host and pilot Armon was the best. Very smart and safe pilot and very accommodating to our group of 14. This was a sunrise event. Breakfast was great! Everyone must experience this at least 1 time if not more!

You have to get up way too early in the morning but thoroughly worth it. I'm blessed to live in this beautiful county but the trip took my breath away

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.
