Most amazing experience. I was so happy with the outcome of my first balloon ride. The staff was super friendly and made me feel safe at all times. The owner, Mike, was very responsive and called us the morning of the day to let us know if we were able to go out on the balloon. We loved our guide, Armon, who was a skilled and charming pilot. To top it off, at the end of the balloon ride, we were taken to a winery to have a nice intimate champagne brunch. Thanks Mike and staff for an unforgettable experience!

This was a really fun experience. The Groupon rate was fair for the ride. The breakfast left a lot to be desired. The homemade quiche was lovely, but they ruined my champagne with nasty industrial orange drink and the rest of the breakfast food was not up to wine country standards.

What You'll Get

Hot air balloons let you enjoy sailing over the Earth at a leisurely pace, unlike the team of frenzied dogs that pulls most parasails. Have a more relaxing trip with this Groupon.

About Up & Away Ballooning

As sure as the sun emerges from Sonoma’s horizon each morning, passengers will soar the skies in Up & Away Ballooning’s vibrantly colored hot-air balloons to view it. These sunrise rides have touched the clouds for nearly 15 years, helmed by FAA-certified pilots who are well versed in weather patterns and let the winds guide the aircrafts at varying altitudes. Depending on how high you journey, you might soak in epic views of the Pacific Ocean, Napa Valley, or San Francisco. Passengers gaze down upon the world in awe in groups of 6, 9, or 14, and conclude their rides with a brunch of champagne, quiche, and bread that has been toasted by the sun on the pilot’s outstretched hands.
