So as I said in my previous Napa Valley post, I was not a huge fan of the wine trail. I was, however, a huge fan of Napa by hot air balloon. We used Napa Valley Balloon Company and were pleased – very professional and took every precaution needed to make our trip safe and enjoyable. They picked us up at 5:00 a.m. and it was a little touch and go if we were going to go or not as the weather was not cooperating. We waited just a bit in the cafe, had coffee and some breakfast (included in the price) and then were given the green light. It was my second time in a hot air balloon…the first in Albuquerque…and Scott’s first. He was a little nervous but soon realized it is so peaceful and quiet floating up there and not scary at all. I highly recommend this way to see the beautiful scenery in the valley and aan arial view of all the vineyards.
