Full description
Rise above the world-famous Napa Valley on a hot air balloon adventure and be amazed by the beauty of this wine-growing region. Admire the breathtaking views in a small group trip, and take a peak at the stunning Mount Saint Helena. Start your day early to make the most of the pleasant light and tranquility that follows sunrise. On most mornings, launch from the heart of Yountville, a charming rural village in Napa Valley renowned for its award-winning restaurants and premium wineries. Check in with your certified pilot, then ascend above the valley floor. Marvel at the panoramic views that soon open up, and gaze at Mount Saint Helena in the Mayacamas Mountains, one of the few mountains in the San Francisco Bay Area to receive snowfall during the winter. With favorable winds, even catch a glimpse of the San Francisco skyline and the spectacular Sierras to the east. Depending on the wind conditions, float between 1,000 and 3,000 feet (roughly 300 and 900 meters) above the valley floor with your pilot. As you descend to the valley floor at the end of your trip, take in the breathtaking scenery one last time.

THE RIDE WAS WONDERFUL! GENTLE FLIGHT AND LANDSCAPING LANDSCAPE. SINGLE DETAIL: I PURCHASED THE PICTURES AND WARNING THAT I PAY WITH CARD. NO CARD MACHINE AT THE END AND I HAD TO PAY IN CASH. As I had already paid for the tour online I was stripped of money but had the value of the photo $ 40.00. When I finished paying I was charged by a woman grossly saying that I should pay her. I warned that I had already paid for the ride and the photos and after a lot she insisted that I should pay she told me at the end: TYPE OF THE BALONIST (I WAS MONEY FREE AT THIS TIME). THE RESPONSIBLE FOR THE COMPANY WAS EDUCATED AND TOLD ME NOT TO WORRY ABOUT THIS. I would surely give a tip to the balonist but they could warn that there is no card machine! THAT DIDN'T TAKE THE BRIGHTNESS FROM THE RIDE BUT ALERTS TO IMPROVE THE SERVICE. I FELT CONSTRANTED WITH A PERSON TALKING THAT I SHOULD PAY HER!
