We were the first out of all the balloons to be up in the air. Other balloon companies seemed to be piled up on one another while California Dreamin was by itself secluded from the rest. Saw the sunrise and crossed a bucket list item off for my mom. She was terrified at first, but the crew and pilot instantly put her fears at rest with their calm demeanor’s and clear knowledge of the process. Epic experience, highly recommended.
If you ever were curious or ever wanted to do a hot air balloon ride, you MUST try it! I'm terrified of heights and I was not scared at all. I believe we had Dylan as our pilot, and he explained everything every step of the way. He was knowledgable, passionate, and as a bonus, he trained most of the other pilots in other hot air balloons around us. I felt very safe, got amazing photos (that all the staff also helped us take) and had a great time! This adventure was totally worth it!
I honestly thought the highlight of the ride would be going up high into the sky. What turned out to be amazing was skimming the tops of the vineyards. Being so low to the ground and hovering over all the grapevines felt more unreal than being up in the sky. Unexpected surprise.
Extremely organized, super friendly crew and pilots, extremely knowledgeable. Our pilot (who also flies for other companies and has flown all over the world) says that this company treats their equipment the best and therefore it is SUPER safe and they have the most fun! I believe it is also a father son run company which just makes it that much more wholesome! Highly recommend and would absolutely return for a 2nd time! Very impressed!
Guys were great! Amazing experience for us..except the two people that were scheduled to go with us showed up 35-45 minutes late and we missed the sunrise.Personally I would have left them…it was frustrating for us to wait especially since we got up at 2:30am to get ready and make it to the meeting point ON TIME!We chose this company for the Sunrise trip… not the we’ll get there when we can! Overall it was amazing!
If you're looking for a thrilling adventure and breathtaking views, then look no further than California Dreamin' Balloon Adventures! My wife and I had the pleasure of experiencing our first hot air balloon ride with this family-owned and operated company, and it was truly a once-in-a-lifetime experience.The company places safety and training at the forefront of their operations, which put our minds at ease before even taking off. The entire experience was seamless, from the pre-flight instructions to the landing, and the crew made us feel comfortable and at ease throughout the entire ride.As we ascended into the sky, the views of California's stunning landscape were nothing short of incredible. It was an experience that we will never forget, and we're already looking forward to our next ride!We highly recommend this company to anyone looking for an unforgettable adventure with a team that truly cares about your safety and experience. Thank you for an incredible ride!
Hospitable staff that truly loves to fly! Family owned and operated. I felt completely cared for the entire time and was in awe with the experience. After the balloon ride, there was a cute little continental-type breakfast spread, mimosas, coffee and hot cocoa. Would recommend to anyone looking to support a small business and get a great and knowledgeable team. Dave, our driver and owner, has 42 years experience!! He told us of his adventures, and explained the layout of Temecula. Truly enjoyed this first time and will definitely do this again!
