We had a an amazing experience!!! I googled hot air balloon rides before I actually booked with them & read the reviews…he was the best choice! And I chose RIGHT!!! From start to finish was GOOD! The cheerful receptionist who booked us over the phone to Joe flying us through the air to see the sunrise & the view of Wine Country but last but not least the crew who helped us along the way as we arrived and departed! I was scared but quickly calmed because the ride is so smooth! They explained to us what we were seeing and told us about the original hot air balloon ride which they called it the first human flight! The history of the first successful landing with the champagne toast etc… When you understand the history you really appreciate the toast at the end!! Oh and let’s not forget about THE NOTHING BUNDT CAKES😋 Best experience ever!!! 😊 Thanks you to you and your team! We will definitely recommend your services to all we know!

It was a pleasant experience.Meet up time is at 5:30 am, parked in the area that said “additional parking.” Someone should come to you and check you in around 5:30 am.We got into a van that took us for a restroom break and then to one location to test the winds before take off. Proceeded to the set up location for take off.The process is really interesting to watch, they lay everything out methodically. Takes about 15-20 mins give or take to set up.We took off around 6:30 am, right before the sun was rising.You gotta hop in and out of the basket so just make sure you have the mobility for it.Me and my fiancé were right under the burners/propellers? for the flame so the top of your head does get quite hot, I recommend wearing a hat if you’re under that section.Our pilot was Joe, he was super chill and knowledgeable.After our flight they offered us some mimosas and a mini bundt cake.

Just got done flying with Eric ... what a wonderful experience. Took my wife for her 40th birthday. Eric was extremely skilled and did an awesome job piloting the Balloon. Also had lots of interesting info about the history of Hot air ballooning . To top it all off the CUPCAKES were Amazeballs !! 10 outta 10 would recommend 👌

I was so nervous and couldn’t sleep the night before our ride. Let metell you how there is absolutely NOTHING to worry about! Our Pilot Joe made it such an amazing experience and it was so peaceful and beautiful when we were up in the air. The landing was super smooth. Big shout out to Gabriel and Owen for the smooth landing! They all made this experience so great I would definitely do this again and encourage anyone else to book with them!

This was so much fun! I totally recommend y’all try the hot air balloon rides out!!! The view was awesome. The operators were very professional and funny. They made the ride enjoyable. They knew exactly what they were doing and definitely made us feel safe the entire time. Also, let me just say it definitely takes a lot of calculations to land and the operators knew exactly what they were doing. I loved this entire experience & would definitely do this again.

It was a wonderful experience that that I've waited my whole life for. Floating like a cloud over the vineyards of Temecula on a cool cloudy day ..what a way to spend a morning! I now want to do a sunset ride. Cielo was great and it was a very smooth ride with a perfect landing . At the end was champagne and Bundt cupcakes so what can I say it was perect day!

Absolutely fabulous! Our first time ballooning and certainly not the last time. Great care and communication made for a great experience. It’s a small and new family run company, and they clearly go the extra mile to give you the best experience. Personally I think their balloons looked the best out of all we saw, and the basket is very comfortable. Ended with mimosas and cupcakes, lovely touch.

Was the most awesome thing I’ve ever done!!! Would definitely do it again!!! Great job guys

What a way to welcome the sunrise! It was like floating above the beautiful vineyards & wineries. Very peaceful along with fun tidbits of info and conversations with the pilot. Smooth takeoff & landing and friendly accommodating assistance from all those involved. Loved the toast at the end. My sisters were visiting from out of State and it was so fun to share this experience with them.

My son and I had a great balloon ride with Joe and the Cielo team this morning. Professional but also personal. Smaller groups than some of the other operators which made it more enjoyable. (This morning we were the only guests!) They are great about staying in touch and confirming the weather/timing the evening before the ride. Would recommend this business to anybody considering a hot air balloon ride in Temecula.

If you’re thinking of taking a balloon ride, book with Cielo. Eric and his crew are professional, safe, punctual and fun. These guys are pros! Beautiful, clean and new balloon equipment. Eric kept us informed and entertained throughout and explained how and what he was doing during prep and flight. Joe landed our balloon exactly where he aimed it, which was very impressive. Other balloon pilots missed their landing spot and had to move locations, but not Cielo. We ended with a glass of Prosecco and a history lesson of ballooning. My girlfriend and I had the best time. Highly recommend. Thank you Cielo!

This is my 2nd time doing this. The 1st, with a different company, was not so good. I really didn’t want to do it again. So glad I did. Huge difference. Everyone involved is friendly, helpful, kind and all around great. Makes me want to go again. Plus the weather was perfect on 8/28/21.

Cielo balloon was great and our pilot has over 20 years of experience so we definitely felt in good hands. His co-worker is also very friendly and the cupcakes and mimosas top off the great views at the end. Definitely recommend.

Went with my family on a Sunday morning flight, and I had an amazing time. The staff and pilot were so wonderful, and even when winds weren't the most favorable, they did everything to make our trip the best! Highly recommend! The best company to book for flights in Temecula.
