If you’re planning on a Napa Valley wine tour, choose activities that will be full of surprises and wonder as well as guaranteed to be unforgettable. The following activities are some suggestions you may want to consider.

You might as well pick an activity that will leave you with a lasting, lingering impression: riding a hot air balloon! When you’re planning that “trip of the lifetime,” choose Balloons Above the Valley (BATV) to help you enjoy it to the nth degree.

Sure, you may have seen the panoramic views of the Napa Valley when you’re at the hilltop winery, and it is beautiful. However, nothing beats the feeling and experience of viewing the majestic landscape when you’re thousands of feet above the ground!

BATV’s amazing hot air balloon and wine packages will not only take you up in the sky — which is a delight already — but they also feature other perks that you and the other guests are sure to enjoy!

What could surpass this kind of experience? As you slowly float above the ground and up into the sky, the sun will also rise above the horizon. Slowly but surely you will get to see those immaculately neat rows of grapevines, the lush verdant mountains, and wineries. Houses and mansions amidst the vineyards all seem to be toy houses now. And just like you and the other guests, the landscape will welcome the first rays of the sunrise, ready to wake up everything below.

You don’t have to feel any fear because our pilots are fully experienced in navigating the hot air balloon. We only fly when the conditions are perfect — gentle, stable and cool winds — which are conducive for this kind of transportation. Our pilots will immediately put you and the other guests at ease with their wealth of experience. They will point you to other sites of interest as you float gently along with the breeze, and will even entertain you with their sense of humor!

Needless to say, you won’t leave this enchanting moment up in the sky without taking photographs using your cameras and smartphones. You will want to take as many lovely souvenirs photos or videos to remember your flight!

Before you take the lovely hot air balloon ride, wake up your senses with our pre-flight breakfast consisting of hot and freshly-baked goodies and freshly brewed coffee. Then, once you’ve landed from that wonderful flight, all guests will be feted to a post-flight brunch with delicious and seasonal food with a sparkling wine. One of our packages also offers an exclusive flight as well as an exclusive table for a more intimate experience, if that is what you would like.

We also offer on-the-ground wine tours in Napa and Sonoma, where you will also enjoy wine-tasting, picnic-style lunches, and a chance to taste olive oil from the Olive Press. Experience luxury and convenience during your wine tours by riding on our chauffeured bus limos, where you will also enjoy an on-board breakfast (with mimosa drink).

How about a little more time in the wine country before going to San Francisco? Depending on your heart’s desire, you can do some shopping and sightseeing at the Oxbow Public Market or Napa Premium Outlets in the afternoon. Our chauffeur will drop you off to one of these two establishments following the post-flight brunch.

Balloons Above the Valley can also make your special moments and your life’s highlights even more unforgettable! We also do weddings and proposals, as well as corporate and group tours!
