We stayed at the Vintage Inn so this was a 2 minute walk at 5:30 in the morning. Very professional crew. Total of 4 balloons in our group. Pictures were spectacular. The whole process was very interesting.. especially the landing. A bucket list item of my daughter's!

After reading many reviews & trying to figure out which company had the highest satisfaction & safety, I knew "Napa Valley Aloft Balloon Rides" would be the one for us. We are 66 & 68 respectively!! The entire experience was a piece of cake for us. I really appreciated the... More

First time on a hot air balloon and it's worth it!! The views you get are very nice as they take you at almost sunrise and the calm feeling is extraordinary

A fun experience for older children and adults. Napa Valley Aloft is professional and well organized. Since the balloons go up early in the morning, you go up the day before and spend the night locally. We stayed at the pleasant Petit Logis Inn, which was quite convenient.

Seriously, we did hit a tree, but everything was fine. The pilot did a great job and the trip was sure memorable. Over all it was my first ballon ride and was a very neat experience for sure. Great brunch followed the ride as well.

I researched a few companies and I picked this one due to good reviews and because someone said their baskets are smaller. I didn't want our first time to be in a balloon with 16+ people. We ended up with 12, which sounds high if you have never done it, but it was a very reasonable number of people. We... More

My wife and I celebrated our 30th wedding anniversary with an early morning balloon ride with Napa Valley Aloft. A first for each of us, and very enjoyable. The staff were very courteous, efficient, and professional. Our flight lasted just under an hour, covering a bit over 5 miles of beautiful Napa Valley wine country. Our pilot was very knowledgeable... More

Easy booking with Aloft, email confirmation and phone call reminder the day before. $220/pp, but worth it! Arrived at 5:30am, bussed to field with six hot air balloons waiting. We were two in a 12 passenger basket with great views. My wife loved it more than the Napa Wine train ride! Tip: wear light clothes, so you can shed layers... More

Best experience of the vacation! Veteran, experienced pilots--ours, Russ, had been flying for over 25 years! Warm, welcoming staff on ground and a gorgeous flight aloft. Be sure to get the brunch afterwards. Just an amazing day. You have to get up verrry early but it is worth every sevond.

This is something that has always been on the bucket list and very happy to have been able to tick it off somewhere so beautiful. We were lucky and had fantastic weather and great visibility. The team were professional from the outset and throughout. The views from the balloon were breathtaking and, whilst I think we were only in the... More
