    5 star review  Thank you Jake and the greatest staff ever. I am terrified of heights and they helped ease me into doing this. It was an experience I’ll never forget. Napa is so beautiful and we could see San Francisco in the air. Breathtaking.

    5 star review  Our ride was on Thursday, 10/26, and it was absolutely AMAZING - I highly recommend this company over any of the other ones in the valley. Our pilot, Chad, was one awesome dude and you could tell the crew genuinely liked each other and loved to have fun. Thank you all very much for giving me and my husband an outstanding first hot air balloon ride experience. We will be forever grateful. �

Up in the air, it is nothing short of peaceful. Once we landed, we headed back into town for a personalized brunch. Perfect ending to a fabulous morning. Thank you to all who took part in making the event one to remember.

    thumb Diane S Bailey Bland

    5 star review  It was an amazing experience. We could see San Francisco from Napa which is sometimes hard due to fog but the day we flew it was crystal clear!! This should be something that everyone experiences because it's not scary at all. My family was celebrating my mom's birthday. We had the best pilot (Chad)! He told jokes and was so knowledgeable about everything. We landed safely with a huge breakfast and endless mimosas. It was so much food you almost couldn't fit it all on your plate!!! These balloons are the largest balloons in the nation!! I would definitely recommend this company!!

The first attempt didn't work out due to windy conditions but we were able to reschedule for the next day.

Our pilot Jake added some entertainment and education to the experience. We can't wait to come back and do it again!

  • 4 star review  Great trip! Our only dissappointment was not being able to fly over Napa Valley, but no one can control the weather. Also the basket was a bit crowded....perhaps they should not put more than 4 adults in a compartment?

    5 star review  From beginning to end, Balloons Above the Valley was exceptional. I had had pretty so-so customer service on my trip to Napa but BATV blew me away. Seriously. From the crew to the pilots to the people taking our credit cards, everyone was on happy pills. Everyone seems to love what they're going and it shows. This was worth every penny in my opinion and I strictly want to come back just to book with BATV again. I cannot emphasis how great they were. Also, Tina and Chelle, y'all are the greatest.
