Overview
Gently float over a private vineyard on this hour long hot air balloon ride in Temecula. Cruise over citrus groves and wineries with a far-off view of the mountains in the distance. After landing, enjoy a light european breakfast served in a private rose garden.
Highlights
  • Watch the sun rise above the wineries of Temecula from the air
  • Hot air balloon ride is a good activity for couples
  • Relax with a light breakfast and Champagne on the vineyard grounds
  • Choose an alternate date or full refund if canceled due to poor weather
What to Expect
Head to Vindemia Winery in Temecula’s wine region for this hot air balloon adventure. There, watch the crew inflate your hot air balloon before you board the basket with an FAA-licensed, fully certified pilot. During this early morning ride, gently float among the clouds above the area’s abundant vineyards and rolling hills, while catching the sun rise over the mountains. Then, touch down a few miles away from your starting point and be driven back to the private vineyard for a light breakfast with a glass of Champagne in an on-site rose garden. If the ride is canceled due to poor weather, you will be given the option of an alternate date or full refund of the ride.

My best recollection is that standing in the basket is about 3 1/2 to 4 feet. But I would call the tour company and ask them directly. They may even have a solution for this issue, i.e., small footstool, etc.
