My boyfriend took me for a Hot Air Balloon Ride for my birthday last August. it was a bucket list adventure and i was excited to go, even though I was getting over a bad illness. In retrospect, we should have rescheduled, as I would have enjoyed it more when feeling 100%. The ride begins very early, we were up... More

Our commute from LAX area about 3:45 a.m. brought us to Temecula by 5 a.m. Van was ready to leave about 6 a.m. with the balloon and basket in a little open trailer hitched to the back of the van. No open restrooms that early in the morning at Maurice's Winery which is the meeting spot. There is one restroom... More

Gave this as a gift. Customer service was awesome as this was a complete surprise present. They made sure my Dad's 50th birthday was very special and included a birthday cake at the end of the ride

My wife and I took our 18 year old grandson on this balloon ride as a graduation gift. The location in Perris, CA was a little tough to find in the dark at 5:00 in the morning but the ride was great. Our pilot, John, was funny, extremely knowledgeable and had 22 years experience flying balloons. Along with the 3... More

Such an awesome experience. Our pilot was great, very informative and entertaining throughout the trip. Very smooth flight, we literally flew higher than all the other balloons in the sky. Felt very safe and in good hands. The entire crew was so friendly and welcoming. And after we landed, there was champagne and appetizers. It was really a memorable experience... More

We used a groupon for a birthday treat flight, and it was a treat. Our pilot was very experienced and took time to answer all questions and showed us just how much control he had over the balloon with a gentle start and perfect landing. The company went the extra mile for us with a birthday banner & birthday tablecloth... More
