We had wonderful experience. We drove early in the morning from Bonzall. The Europa winery is really picturesque - Spanish style building with rose garden overlooking wine yard. Great place for special occasions. Our pilot Pete was amazing and very experienced. The entire crew is really hardworking. We really enjoyed the ride and breakfast in the winery. Highly recommend.

It is a super early deal, you have to be on site and ready by 6am. But it is SO worth it! We got and amazing 1-hour ride over Temecula and enjoyed spectacular views. The crew was super friendly and always made sure everything was safe. After we were done, they took us back for fresh fruit, pastries and a... More

My wife took the girls for her birthday. What a great way to start the day. She loved it! $ 133 is pretty reasonable. Followed the ride with complimentary champagne back at Europa then home in time for breakfast.

My first hot air balloon ride! The morning started out foggy, so we looked for an alternate site to take off from. The staff apologized for the wait but explained the reasons why to all of us. Safety first, which made all of us novice balloon riders comfortable. The fog lifted so we could take off. It was a great... More

Great company very professional staff. You will be glad you booked A Grape Escape Balloon Tour. I booked a tour for my husband's 65th birthday 8-27-16. Rick checked us in (very nice polite young man) and he answered all of my questions without hesitation. Well it seems a low cloud cover developed, so our trip was cancelled. Although it may... More

Our pilot, Peter, was great. Very informational and friendly atmosphere. The pick up point is easy access and the mimosa at the end of the trip is a nice touch.

This was definitely an amazing experience and would certainly come back. I would suggest you do this even during cooler weather because the heat from the hot air balloon can be an inconvenience but worth it. The ride itself is very smooth, more like a gliding sensation. Did not get motion sickness at all. At the end of the ride... More

My husband and I extremely needed a getaway. So I planned a trip to Temecula Wine Country. We stayed at Inn in Europa Village (amazing - please see review), and I booked a hot air balloon ride. I have to say from start to finish - from booking to execution - everything was professional and smooth. We ended up traveling... More

My fiancé surprised me with a hot air balloon ride. The day that we were scheduled to fly a fog bank rolled in over the wine country. However the Grape Escape team still made this a very memorable experience for us. From beginning to end, the whole team was extremely professional and they all worked very hard to make sure... More
