The organization it takes...

The organization it takes from meeting, prepping the balloons, flying , landing, and packing up. Otherwise flying was peaceful and beautiful over the vineyard’s. Well organized

Thank you, Joseph. There are a lot of moving parts to a balloon ride. Most people just see the ride portion. I appreciate you noticing all the extra work that goes into the process behind the scenes.

Worse experience

We missed the sunrise, the check I lady was not friendly at all. We were in one place the whole time viewing the ugly view. Landing was awful, pilot and his one person to help him land did not know how to communicate. Bad experience

Thanks for your feedback. Balloons travel with the wind so how fast and far we go are greatly wind-dependent. Local mountains like Big Bear and Mt. Baldy, local lakes including Lake Skinner and Diamond Valley reservoir, it was also so clear we could see the pacific ocean, so I am not sure what view expectations we missed. My hostess did report a concern with the Cisneros party of 3 at check-in. I am guessing that was you. She was worried you weren't having a good time before we even started. I reviewed the pictures from the November 13th flight on our Facebook page and triple-checked to make sure we provided everything we promised. I am sorry you did not have a good time.

Most disappointing experience.

Not memorable… we did not see any vineyards, other balloons, or anything that was scenic. I was just on my patio which overlooks a vineyard and saw 6 balloons overhead. That is what I wanted to see on my hot air balloon ride. I am so disappointed!!!
icon Response from Host , Nov 2021
We launched at the end of Rancho California Road, which is the main strip in wine country. There were several balloons in the air and in the pictures that we took that day. This guest requested we fly over his hotel, but balloons travel with the wind and we could not steer the balloon in that direction. Sorry to disappoint.

Before the trip make sure you fill out the waiver, I was told it was emailed to me but didn’t see it. Not sure what happened, nonetheless I had to fill out 4 waivers , one for each family members. The ballon ride itself was excellent, the pilot was funny and informative. Before boarding, the crew seemed rushed and a bit rude. It was a bummer because we were really excited and they seemed annoyed or bothered with the customers. They should have smaller groups to help with their frustration. Denny the owner, took role call three or four times calling off the same names each time. Each person needed to step on a scale to get weighed in and the women acted like she was just ready to get it done and go home. A bit of a disappointment. I may try a different company next time. It all seem very scripted and lacked genuine good customer service. They need to remind themselves all though it’s a successful biz, please remember your customer. It was the first time for our family and they kind of dampened the mood

We sure were busy that morning. We were trying to efficiently check-in and pre-flight brief over 80 guests to get everyone to their balloon basket. I apologize that you misread us as being annoyed or bothered. On the contrary, we love what we do and appreciate our guests deeply. I am very grateful that we were sold out that day. I appreciate your feedback. My check-in team and I will be mindful of how our guests are feeling on our busiest days. Each guest must sign a release of liability waiver to participate. We are also required by the FAA to show a weight and balance calculation for each balloon and that we accurately record the weights. This is to ensure we don't overload the aircraft and for everyone's safety. We are also required to provide a pre-flight briefing (just like the airlines) and the multiple roll call was due to several guests coming back late from Starbucks. I am glad things improved once we got you to your balloon.

The hot air balloon staff and crew were extremely professional. They made the experience fun and relatively seemless.
icon Response from Host , Oct 2021
Thank you so much! You flew with us on the same day as another reviewer who wasn't happy because she didn't feel cared for. To her point, we do sell out on weekends and have to split our attention across more guests. I appreciate the positive comments specifically about our staff and crew. We love what we do and guests like yourself that let us keep doing it. You made my day Mr. Bumacod!

Best thing I ever done.

The trip was so amazing. Unfortunately we didn’t get to go super high but was very interesting ride. Some guy was acting very erratic and very bothered by us flying over the vineyard. He followed us all over but when he confronted with cursing, our pilot Brian was so professional and engaged him without any cursing. He was patient and very kind. I want to fly again with Brian. He’s that awesome. Very kind hearted and explained a lot of the mechanics of the hot air balloon to where we can understand.

I did not like that we were scammed on the weight scales and had to pay a extra $50.00. The scales were set 21 lbs over. I was just weighed at Kaiser last week and my weight was 21 lbs less there and at my home scales. The hot air balloon ride was excellent but I will not recommend this company to my friends or family. Dishonest in the parking lot on the scales to charge me extra!

We are required by the FAA to do a weight and balance calculation to ensure we are not overloading the aircraft. This is for everyone's safety. We are not dishonest. You were not scammed. Our weight fuel surcharge policy is outlined on the Viator website when you purchase a promotional fare that is less than our regular-priced ticket. Third-party discounted promotional fares are subject to weight fuel surcharges if a guest weighs over 225 lbs. to cover the higher costs in fuel use and balloon time. Most people weigh themselves naked and don't realize how much clothing and accessories add to the weight. We would have happily refunded your purchase if you opted out, but you wanted to ride instead. It is important to note that even in your electronic waiver, which you signed in advance and of your own volition, you self-reported a weight that was subject to the weight fuel surcharge.
