First, the weather in Napa on Sunday was absolutely perfect for a balloon ride: crystal clear, a moderate breeze, and not a cloud in the sky. Second, our pilot Bob Swanson showed us every bit of his 37+ years of ballooning skills - letting us pick bay laurel from the trees as we touched them gently in a sheltered valley,... More

It is a must experience however make sure you wear a cap on your head so you don't burn your hair follicles. No need to wear heavy clothing either even though you leave in the morning and it's cold. Another suggestion is make sure they don't transfer you to another location like they did with our group. We were told... More

My wife and I wanted to do something special for her birthday so we decided to try Napa Valley Balloons. We met at Domain Chandon in Yountville, just 15 minutes from downtown Napa. Once everyone was checked in, we took a short drive to the launch facility at Vintner's Golf Course next door. We had 16 people in our balloon... More

We flew yesterday at sunrise with captain Bob who was funny, friendly and an absolute pro. I took my 2 friends as my "surprise" to them and it was their first time in a balloon. We all had an incredible time. The views were spectacular as we floated at 4000 ft. Bob took tons of pics on the go-pro and... More

Check in at the reception area located at Domaine handon in Yountville by 6 am, launch from a nearby driving range. the balloons rise into the dawn air over the picturesque Napa Valley wine growing region. With enough altitude, we caught the morning breezes which took us on a lazy circuit around the Southern half of the valley. We were... More

My husband and I were in Napa to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary. I have long had a hot air balloon ride on my bucket list and this was the perfect way to check it off the list. Our pilot - Bob - has years of experience as a balloon pilot and landed us on a narrow strip of land... More
