This was an excellent experience. I highly recommend CA Dreaming for your hot air balloon ride. Our pilot was highly knowledgeable about the terrain, wildlife in the area, ballooning, and explained everything in an easy to understand fashion. He took us up to approximately 2,000 feet and brought us close to the ground so we could see the jackrabbits scurrying around. Due to Covid, everyone wore masks, including the ground crew, and upon landing we were served mimosas, OJ and sparkling cider in the field next to our landing spot, which was perfectly delightful. Please check these guys out if you're considering a hot air balloon ride. You won't be disappointed.

What a beautiful way to spend the morning of my birthday! We stayed at The South Coast Winery Resort & Spa. The folks from California Dreamin’ provided round trip transportation and a beautiful balloon ride. The breakfast afterwards was delicious (bread, fresh fruit, Brie cheese, mimosas, tea, coffee, hot cocoa). And a special touch at the very end for my birthday — they sang happy birthday and passed out slices of delicious chocolate cake. This business is a family affair and the customer service was stellar. When you’re in Temecula, THIS is the place to visit.
