    What To Wear

    For this experience, our partners are taking extra measures to ensure that they help prevent the potential spread of COVID-19. They are requiring their staff and team to wear face masks and gloves. Additionally, they are sanitizing and wiping down all surfaces with Wine Industry Sanitizer hourly. They kindly ask that if you are not feeling well, to please reschedule your flight, and when at their facility to please maintain proper social distance as much as possible. 

    Is it a safe experience?
    This balloon company has built their entire reputation on providing you with the adventure of your life. Since 1977 their pilots, staff, and crew have been extensively trained by employing rigid company practices that go beyond those required by law.
    What should I wear?

    Casual outdoor active wear is recommended, along with a jacket, sweatshirt or fleece pullover. Comfortable shoes are suggested, high heels are not allowed. The balloon burners radiate heat, therefore, it is recommended that if you are over 6 feet tall that you wear a hat or a cap. In the cooler months you can bring some gloves to wear.

    What do I need to bring?
    A camera! A video camera! It is recommended you leave all other personal possessions safely locked in your car.
    What about bad weather?
    Weather is obviously an important factor in ballooning. That is why there is a "mandatory" phone call prior to each flight, for that final "weather confirmation". If the flight is canceled because of weather conditions, you will be able to reschedule your flight for another date.
    How many passengers will be in the balloon?
    The number of passengers depends on the balloon, the smallest accommodates 6 passengers, and the largest accommodates up to 14 passengers! All of the baskets are large, European design, and partitioned to give each passenger maximum comfort and visibility.
    How high does the balloon fly?
    When you are aloft in the balloon you may travel up to 1,500 feet above the earth, which is what makes those views so fantastic!
    How far will the balloon travel?
    The average distance that you will travel in the balloon is 3-7 miles, depending on winds.
    What if I have motion sickness?
    There is no turbulence sway or keel in a hot air balloon. However, if you are especially sensitive to motion, medication should be effective.
    Is this experience wheelchair accessible?

    No, this experience is not wheelchair accessible. Participants enter the basket by climbing into the basket using foot holes that are elevated off the ground, and swinging your left over the side of the basket. Additionally, the basket does not have seats, so please plan on standing for the duration of your flight (roughly 1 hours).

    “The overall experience was great. They even served us breakfast and mimosas upon our return. Since it was our anniversary, they put us in a hot air balloon basket that said happy anniversary and gave us a bottle of wine as a gift.

The area where we ate breakfast after was beautiful and surrounded by vineyards. I would absolutely recommend this trip to everyone! ”
