DO NOT BUY! Check yelp reviews first!! They do not treat their customers with respect. My Groupon says redeemed in October but I still have not gone on their hot air balloon. I scheduled multiple time to have them cancel my flight for different reasons. Hopefully this review can save you all a headache.

I have had this Groupon for over a year and I have not been able to use it. Every time I try to schedule to fly, it gets cancelled. I bought this Groupon for my grandmother to celebrate her 77th birthday so I spent over $300 and I even had to spend an extra $50 to renew my voucher because it expired due to not being able to schedule. My reservation has gotten canceled more than five times and I’m not over exaggerating. All of the cancellations except for one has been due to weather… and I have been trying to schedule throughout the year. The guy Scott who I was in communication with is easy to communicate with and seems helpful but before anyone buys this Groupon, I just want you to be aware on what to expect. I normally don’t write reviews even if I had a bad experience but I don’t want anyone to get their hopes up. I appreciate this business putting safety first and weather is very important when flying but it just seems pretty unlikely that all 12 months have had weather complications.

It was a nice flight and Scott the pilot was funny. It was a little cramped in the basket we were in with 6 people. They have you park at a cafe and then charge you a $52 each person transportation fee to drive you a few miles to where you take off and bring you back once you land. It makes this the regular price on their website. No savings for Groupon.

The merchant was wonderful. He was full of information about ballooning, answered questions easily and helped to make us feel relaxed and welcome.

The service was good. We changed place and finally got to be in the air after 9am. The only thing I don’t feel very comfortable is the owner put us all in a restaurant and try to sell us product after the flight. Though it isn’t mandatory, I would say there is no need for this. Overall it is a nice experience!

It was organized and well planned. Our pilot explained the history and machinations of the balloon. We had two balloons flying on the same day so we could take pictures of the other balloon in flight.

Wine Country Balloons

With its sprawling, emerald vineyards, slate-colored lakes, and winding rivers, the Sonoma Valley seems unfairly intended for birds. However, Wine Country Balloons’ FAA-certified balloon pilots have more than 30 years of experience rebelling against gravity. Each day, weather permitting, they lift the hot air crafts from the ground and navigate them along the morning sky’s gentle air currents with little sensation of motion and wind, providing passengers with views of the San Francisco Skyline, Russian River, Pacific Coast, geysers, mountains, vineyards, and Redwood Forest. After the balloon lands, guests enjoy a champagne toast and can opt for a made-to-order brunch.

The fleet of balloons are designed with safety in mind, each providing secure compartments that can accommodate 2 to 6 passengers. All pilots are fully insured and licensed by the California Public Utilities Commission and United States Department of Transportation, ensuring a safe, professional flight.
