$139 for a One-Hour Hot Air Balloon Tour for One Adult (a $370 Value)
Passengers glide over valleys and vineyards with a licensed commercial balloon pilot in a wide, 25-person basket, which is one of the largest baskets in North America. As they survey the countryside and shoot photos of curious paper airplanes, riders nibble snacks and take part in a sparkling cider toast. On a clear day, passengers might be able see the Pacific Ocean and the Golden Gate Bridge from nearly 65 miles away. Upon return to earth, they gather for a wine celebration. Tours include a chauffeured limousine ride to and from the balloon launch site.

About Balloon Over Napa Sonoma
Each of Balloon Over Napa Sonoma’s FAA-certified hot air balloon pilots maintain a perfect safety record in their gentle, slow flights over the Napa Valley, even after logging thousands of in-flight hours for private and commercial licenses. Though they've tamed thermals over five continents, each has returned to the valley to showcase local winery estates on ever-changing tours that never follow a set path, but instead follow the whim of the breezes. Other guides take passengers on chauffeured limousine rides to visit those same vineyards to sample their wines at the ground level to avoid forcing winemakers to test out their accuracy with a fire hose. :m]]
