Balloons Above the Valley (BATV) is the first company to have introduced the hot air balloon rides and wine tours in Napa Valley. For almost four decades, BATV has been reaping rave reviews from both clients and other organizations. This is evident in the company recently receiving the 2015 TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence and their 2015 Hall of Fame awards.
BATV was featured on one of the top travel/food/lifestyle magazines in country Touring and Tasting Online Grapevine eNewsletter. This magazine focuses primarily on enotourism (wine tourism). You may think the magazine focuses only on France and California, since they are known world-wide for their wines, however, the magazine also features wine destinations in Oregon, Washington, Idaho, Kentucky, Michigan as well as France and California.
The magazine starts this feature with a glowing introduction:
“Join Balloons Above the Valley for a one-of-a-kind wine country tour that you will remember for a lifetime. The friendly, experienced pilots will escort you above the vineyards, where you can explore the beautiful Napa Valley at a bird’s eye view. Your ballooning excursion includes pre-flight cafe & pastry service, and a full champagne brunch celebration following the flight.”
BATV’s promotional video is also featured on Touring and Tasting’s website: http://www.touringandtasting.com/videos/featured/.
Bob Barbarick, owner and operator of BATV, founded the company and offered hot air balloon flights beginning in 1976 before there were very many vineyards in the area. Since that time, the company has become one of the major attractions in the Napa Valley. The company is known for offering exceptional customer service, known for its attention to detail, and following all established safety standards. You can expect to be treated with respect by not only our balloon pilots but also everyone on our staff.
