The lovely state of California offers a variety of climates and landscapes. It has famous beaches on the eastern coast, hot deserts in the southwest, snow-capped mountains and snowy trails in the northern and southern regions (during the winter), and a Mediterranean climate and scenery in the north. It’s like a world away after another in just one state!
So it’s no question that California is a popular tourist destination. One of the things you wouldn’t want to miss is the wine tours in California, to experience its world-class homegrown wines and view the idyllic landscape.
And while you’re at it, you just don’t want to arrive in the Wine Country just by driving your own car or by taking a public transportation. If you have a budget to spare, you may want to arrive there in style, comfort, and luxury, even for just a day. And maybe take a hot air balloon ride for a more memorable journey.
Balloons Above the Valley (BATV) is always ready to give you the memorable “arrive” in your California holiday. Two of our tour packages, the “Balloon & Wine Tour Package” and the “San Francisco Balloon & Wine Tour Package,” will help you get to the Wine Country in style.
Your tour company, Napa Valley Wine Country Tours, has a fleet of limousines and limo buses which will take you to and around the wineries. Experienced and knowledgeable chauffeurs will chat about other interesting and delightful sites of interest as you go along. In the “San Francisco Balloon & Wine Tour Package,” we will pick you up from downtown San Francisco and take you all the way to the Wine Country. While on the course of the journey, you and the other guests will also enjoy an onboard breakfast inside the limousine. How cool is that?
It’s not just the fun and luxurious wine tours that you’re going to enjoy. Of course, the most-awaited part of the tour is the hot air balloon ride! BATV provides sunrise hot air balloon rides for its guests.
Although a hot air balloon ride can be taken early or late in the day, the morning is thought to be the most glorious time of the day to have a hot air balloon journey. Once the balloon is inflated, you are comfortably transferred into the wicker basket. The pilot is ready and the balloon rises above the ground and departs for the sky.
Since the hot air balloon is moved by the direction of the wind, the hot air balloon just “floats” in the air, and the passengers won’t feel any winds during the course of the flight. The result is absolute stillness and quietness.
Enjoy the uninterrupted views of the Napa Valley expanse: neat rows of vineyards, deep valleys, lush rolling hills, the occasional clouds and fog that envelop the peak of the hills. You will never want to forget to take beautiful photos and videos of the stunning scenery. Afterward, take these home as a wonderful souvenir and reminder of that wonderful flight above one of the most famous wine regions in the world.
When you’re up in the sky, the bird’s-eye views of the Napa Valley are absolutely spectacular and breathtaking. This is an experience like no other, and you only wish you would be able to enjoy wine tours in California in the same “stylish” way again very soon!
