I was there in may. They asked to be at the location at 5am in order to see the sunrise. When i arrived they said we will go to search for lunching spot. Once found they unpaced the baloon to set it up. This process is time consuming and should be done prior to guest arrival. By the time they... More

Booked this as a surprise for my wife's 50th birthday during our trip to the US. Everything and I mean everything was perfect. Starting at the booking process I had tried to contact another similar company but after 2 attempts I gave up and thankfully I found California Dreamin, Jeri was brilliant and walked me through the process and even...

Went on the Sunrise balloon tour with my mom (mother daughter treat) last week and had an amazing time! We got the balloon + South Coast Winery package and it was great (stayed 2 nights so we had a full day to relax afterwards too). We were a bit scared before going up (my mom because she's older, me because... More

This is something everyone should do at least once in their lifetime. This company is made up of wonderful, hardworking people, who's main purpose, is to make sure their guests have the best experience possible....and they went far beyond that with my family, who were visiting from New Jersey. The reservation process was simple, price was comparable with the other... More

One should spend the money and take this balloon ride. I was scared to do the hot air balloon ride, but am so happy I did. The owner/pilot/vineyard was fantastic as was his crew and his wife. The breakfast was wonderful and we got to taste one of their wines. Can recommend this and give it 5 stars.

It was our first time in a hot air balloon. We had a great time. Dave did a wonderful job. Due to the winds, our flight lasted a little less than an hour. There were times that we would go low enough that we felt we could almost pick the grapes
