I am DEADLY afraid of heights, but the hot air balloon trip was so easy I had no issue. The crew was amazing $ our pilot, Jeff, was the absolute best. He had a great sense of humor and was very informative on the scenery.

We flew with Jeff and Jose and had a great time! We were in the air for over an hour and were greeted with a local brut when we got back to the starting point. It was incredible! My husband is afraid of heights but really enjoyed this tour! They were more than willing to take tons of pictures for us as well! Would highly recommend!

This was an amazing experience. Chad made this early morning worth it. We got up close to the vineyards, great views at 1k feet, and landed seamlessly with no brave needed. Definitely fly with Sonoma Ballooning!
