A selection of reviews from some of our customers!
Great Experience! They provided us with donuts and coffee when we arrived and mimosas after the ride. Everyone was very helpful and accommodating. We enjoyed our first balloon ride very much. Breakfast at the bomb shelter was included in the price. While having breakfast, we were able to watch the skydivers landing. It was awesome.Lyn S Carlsbad, Ca
The View: No better view than early sunrise!!! WOW!! When the sun shines on our faces.... feeling happy!! The Service: Pilot Jim, Dawn and other staffs are amazing!! They are super friendly~ They are very organized at check-in, giving us overview of the itinerary, allowing us to take as many photos as we can, giving us instruction how to get on & off the ride, etc.Cassandra Y. Burbank, CA
Had a great time! Ryan was a great pilot. We were lucky enough to be one of the first groups. Great time. Got mimosas and free breakfast afterwards.Michelle V. Colton, Ca
Once in a lifetime opportunity. My boyfriend surprised me with this sunrise hot air balloon ride for my birthday and it was a great time.Christina G. San Diego, Ca
This was really fun. This was a Mother's Day present for my mom. She really enjoyed the surprise. I was impressed with the staff. They really try to make it a memorable experience and they are kind of quirky and funny. They start off with coffee and donuts while you wait for them to set up.Kikki B. Westminster, CA
I had bought a groupon for my boyfriend’s birthday to go on a hot air balloon with this company. We had a great experience. Everyone was really nice and had great customer service. The balloon ride was a great experience. Would definitely recommend.Michelle F. Burbank, CA
The staff are great and you get everything from morning doughnuts to a breakfast voucher and mimosa when you come back from your flight! Plan on sparing a couple hours for this trip. You meet at 6am and will probably be flying shortly after 6:30.Vanessa V. Orange, Ca
This was one of the best experiences I had!! The hot air balloon ride wasn't scary at all! My boyfriend was super scared of Heights and to my and his surprise it wasn't as scary as we thought it would be! It goes up about 1,400 ft and only travels about 5mph.! The host Renee was amazing! She made the experience so much better! She kept us very entertained throughout the morning :) And the champagne at the end was priceless :) Thanks for the experience ReneeStephanie G. Glendale, CA
It was definitely an amazing experience! Got a groupon deal for a friend's birthday. We decided to check this one off of our bucket list! We had to drive out to Perris & be there at 530am. We were able to see them set up the balloons & once we're up there the view is breathtaking especially the sunrise! The team was very nice & friendly. They included a champagne toast at the end of the ride.Vega P. Fullerton, CA
Had such an amazing time, I recommend that you do not need a jacket, the fire gets pretty hot up there. But the view was beautiful. I recommend the wild west, the colors are so much more beautiful.Michael T. Beverly Hills, Ca
Amazing and everyone should do this at least once. The skies were clear the wind was calm and no other day like the present to take advantage of a bucket list item.Nicole R. Brea, Ca
We bought a groupon deal and it was worth it. The staff is nice and friendly even at 6am, they were great with explaining things to everyone and even let guests help with some things. We got little flying certificates and mimosas, over all we had a lot if fun for our first hot air balloon ride :)Ashley S. San Diego
THANK YOU Adventure Balloon Rides for this wonderful memory!! You guys definitely put a BIG smile on our faces~ And after the ride, we have mimosa toast for the fun ride and each of us get a certificate to remember this special day~ Even better....they give us voucher for FREE breakfast!! How cool is that~ The Parking: Private Parking Lot (FREE) The Memory: PRICELESS.....Cassandra Y. Burbank, Ca
Loved this! Highly recommend Adventure Balloon rides. I read a lot of bad comments about the company cancelling, but let’s face it when it comes to your life I'm glad that they would cancel and upset people instead of risking going up if the conditions are not ideal. Jim our balloon driver was hilarious and had us laughing the entire time. The whole crew was great. You have to be up very early but it’s worth it. You get coffee and donuts when you arrive and after you land they provide a champagne toast and breakfast vouchers. A super fun memorable experience.Jenn G. La Verne, Ca
Loved it! Great crew, knowledgeable, and incredibly fun. When our flight was over the 'hop' was pretty fun, jumping out of the basket with the next group ready to jump in holding sides of the basket down. The crew provided donuts, coffee and hot chocolate in the early morning meet up, provided champagne toast after returning to the meet up sight, then breakfast vouchers for Bomb Shelter Cafe which was cool because we were able to watch lots of skydivers in the air and landing.Angela B. Los Angeles, Ca
Today is our anniversary, what a fantastic way to celebrate - HOT AIR BALLOON!!! They only fly in the early early morning.... yes, it is not easy to get up soooo early and drive down to Perris. HOWEVER~ Totally worth it!!! The Weather: It is a little bit chili in the morning. But don't worry, the moment we arrive, hot coffee/hot tea/hot chocolate & fresh donuts are waiting for us!! Once we are on the Hot Air Balloon... it is like flying with a big heater!! So cozy in the air~Cassandra Y. Burbank, CA
I went on a hot air balloon ride because it was on my bucket list (and I was literally in a bucket attached to a balloon). Setting up the flight was really easy, and the pilot and staff were really nice. The ride was an hour long, the maximum altitude was over 2000 ft, and the view of the area was excellent. I had a great time! The only downside is that the flights are held early in the morning, and you have to be at the airport at 5:15 AM, but it's worth it.Kevin Z. Hacienda Heights

Great pilot, great service and beautiful flight!Tom N. Corona, Ca.
This was my first time of Hot Air Balloon Ride. It was one of my bucket list. Thanks to Nikki who was very friendly to check us in. When you check in you get donuts and coffee while you wait for your ride to the balloon area. It was pretty cool how you can see air balloon go up. Our pilot David was very nice and answered all our questions. When you're up there it is very Peaceful and awesome to see the VIEW!! Everything was worth it! after you land you get your Certificate and drink! Love that Mimosa! Enjoy your breakfast after! Thank you! Team for making our adventure awesome! but other than that, had a good experience.Tom M. Lake Elsinore, Ca.
It was a awesome experience loved the staff they were very helpful and funny ❤️ Definitely a must do!Marry T. Los Angeles, Ca.
Rene & Jarol were great!! As were the calorie-free(?) donuts and mimosas port flight. Dave, our pilot was also great and interesting. However, probably due to the lack of wind, we didn't get to float over either of the nearby lakes. That would have made the flight much cooler.Jose M. Hemet, Ca
Good experience People working there are cooperative and the ride last for 30-40 minutes above 1500 feet from sea levelAngie M. Hemet, Ca.
It was a very enjoyable experience with a very nice scenery. The pilot was very entertaining. We drifted quite a bit, about 4 miles or a bit more I think so we had to wait a little bit for the van to come find us at the location we landed at. Use tennis shoes or shoes that you don't mind getting dirty because you walk through quite a bit of loose dirt.Tony W. Menifee, Ca.
While you shouldn't expect a breathtaking landscape (it is over a mostly barren airfield), the balloon trip was a wonderful time. The staff were all friendly and highly experienced, and they made everyone feel quite comfortable. I would definitely recommend it for first-time fliersJoe T. Santa Ana, CA.
My co-workers and I had an amazing time...they even invited us to breakfast. overall the whole experience was excellent.Gary N. Moreno Valley, Ca
