Excellent experience and would highly recommend them. Did a significant amount of reading on the various balloon companies in the area and chose this one for two reasons....family owned and operated and nothing below a three star rating. The research paid off as this company was excellent as was the champagne brunch which was a choice of numerous breakfast entrees at the local cafe vs. a simple "here's your sausage and scrambled eggs...." This company also limits their balloons to 12 passengers vs. the typical 15-20 and does not charge your credit card until after you fly. Our pilot, Jay (aka the owner) was great and a very interesting person to talk too. If I fly again... it will definitely be with Napa Valley Aloft!!!

This group of amazing people provides an unforgettable experience. The prep, flight and brunch are all exceptionally delivered. I would recommend them to anyone. Their smaller basket provides a more intimate experience and multiple launch sites and access to winery grounds allows them to change launch sites on the fly (pun intended). I would balloon with them again in a heartbeat.

I booked our trip for some friends visiting from Prague... our party of 5 had a wonderful time. It was all very friendly and comfortable while at the sametime was very professional. Our pilot Jeff was first off the ground and he was able to find spots in between two layers of wind that was totally still so we just floated there not moving at all! Such an amazingly tranquil feeling and experience! We will be back for another ride in the fall to view the vineyard's fall colors from the air!

We really enjoyed ourselves and the crew was awesome. We had the coolest balloon because our basket touched the lake briefly and than went up again. Our family really enjoyed the breathtaking view. Thank you Captain Jay for an unforgettable memory. Best Maggie L.

This company really has its act together! Everything ran smoothly from the first check-in, to the van ride to the beautiful Pope Valley, to the expeditious take-off and smooth landing. The time aloft was just as breathtakingly beautiful as I expected without a ounce of anxiety. Jeff was a great pilot and full of fun information. The champagne breakfast offered at the end for an additional $20 was well worth it! I would definitely recommend this company!

Booked this trip to celebrate my husband's birthday. NVA was professional from start to finish. We had to wait a bit to see if the fog would clear, and it did. The departure from V Marketplace was very easy, and you get to watch the balloons being filled. We had ten people to our basket which was perfect. Our pilot Jeff was very friendly, and it was interesting to sit with him at the brunch and learn more about him and the industry. The view was breathtaking. I wasn't sure if the height would bother me, but it is so peaceful and beautiful. I highly recommend this company and experience.

Everything we thought it would be and more! Very professional and courteous staff. Definitely something to check off your bucket list and use this company to do it. From start to finish, knowledgeable staff make you feel comfortable through the whole experience. We had the perfect day and conditions, we were up in the air for a nice amount of time and gained a lot of information about ballooning, the area, community, etc. Would definitely recommend this company. 5 star!

If you are visiting wine country a hot air balloon ride needs to be put on your to do list! This company is a MUST to book with! I have a horrible fear of heights and could not believe I was actually going to book this.. My husband and I were celebrating our anniversary and I thought this would be a great surprise for him..I worked up the courage and did it and have absolutely NO REGRETS! Aloft is a top notch, extremely well organized company, that I could not speak more highly enough about. They made our trip and anniversary an unforgettable one! There pilots have years of experience, and safety is there top priority. Which I was extreamlly happy about considering I was petrified lol.. Anyway if you have a fear of heights don't be scared to do this,because you really can't tell how high you are, its more of a panoramic view and it moves so slow you don't even feel like your moving. I also highly recommend you add the picture to your package which can be done right before your flight. They have friendly staff walking around to sign you up for that if your interested. Thanks again Aloft for a fantastic experience!

December in the Napa Valley: Also fantastic! My wife described her birthday balloon ride as "Magical." So that's pretty good.
Thanks Napa Valley Aloft!

What a beautiful and thrilling experience! My friend was here visiting and she suggested the balloon ride. I've lived here locally but had never been up in a balloon here! The team at Aloft were organized, professional and they thought of everything! Our pilot, Jay was excellent, safe and gave us great knowledge and fun stories too! This is a must not miss and I've already recommended friends!

Earlier this week my boyfriend and I had the most amazing experience with Napa Valley Aloft balloon rides. The team were fantastic, it was such a great experience and would thoroughly recommend them. After several searches we decided on NVA as they are a family run business and have smaller numbers of people in the baskets.
This made for a great morning, very friendly and we had great weather, spent an hour in flight. Smooth throughout including landing. I would highly recommend. Deborah Osborne.
