What people are saying about Phoenix, Arizona

Phoenix Hot Air Balloon Ride is a great company, Always a prompt and courteous reply to questions, no matter how many you may have. Hotel Pick-Up was on time and Mike our driver was helpful, courteous and professional. On our ride to the location where the balloon takes off he filled us in on local history, events and many other items about the area we were traveling through. Mike would also make a great tour guide. Our pilot was Michael a many year veteran of piloting balloons. Unfortunately we did not get to experience the ride itself. Michael tried desperately to find the right location to launch but due to wind conditions he was not taking the chance. He was more than apologetic and was just as disappointed as the group that was to be on the ride (12 in total). Michael's saying is "Better to be safe on the ground than Sorry in the air! Thank you Michael, we truly appreciate your efforts. We would highly recommend Phoenix Hot Air Balloon Ride. Hope to try again!

We took the whole family on a first time ride. Naturally we all were anxious but the crew explained everything and how it all will transpire which put us at ease. The ride was great. Seeing the sunrise peak behind the mountains as you rise up into the air was breathtaking. The serenity of it all was awe inspiring. We ended up at an elevation of 5500 ft!

My husband and I went for my birthday, both first timers. It was fantastic!! The guide was very experienced and we felt very safe. The staff was also amazing, the went out of their way and made me feel very special with a birthdate cake after breakfast. Would definitely recommend.

Jacob and crew were stellar and prepared us for a great safe adventure. Champagne toast after snd once back to office provided ample generous snacks. Great hospitality and would do this ahain! Beautiful views from above. Smooth flight
