Full description

Glide over the Arizona desert on a hot air balloon ride and admire the desert landscape and mountains from above. Toast to your experience with a glass of champagne once you land.

The experience begins even before you rise into the sky. Help the crew inflate the balloon for a real "hands-on" adventure, or just relax and take a few pictures as the gentle giant comes alive. Once you gain altitude, enjoy vistas you have to see to believe as you float over the Arizona landscape. Phoenix lies beneath you while desert stretches to the distant mountains. The pilots are FAA-licensed and experienced in navigating with your safety and enjoyment in mind. Your pilot will also answer questions and identify points of interest during your flight. A chase crew will follow on the ground and meet you at the landing site. From there a van takes you back to the launch site. Upon your return, enjoy a celebratory toast of Champagne to cap your unique airborne adventure. You'll also be presented with a flight certificate.

We flew out of the Phoenix office and our Captains name was Brooke.The crew got us signed in quick at the office, van driver to and from the launch site was friendly, the crew walked us through everything they were doing and kept everybody involved in the whole experience, the captain was very knowledgeable, he let us enjoy the experience but also told us what we were looking at, answered everyone’s questions and explained how everything worked. The ride was so smooth, the landing was easy. The story of how balloons started and the champagne toast after we landed was great. I would recommend this place to anybody looking to do this, we had a great experience. I am not a fan of flying but this was by far my greatest flight experience. Thank you for a great memory on our honeymoon. We’re from NJ but if we ever get the chance to get back out there we will be doing this again.

This was an amazing experience. Our pilot Jon was great, and kept us entertained with his jokes. I mentioned that I had gifted myself this trip for my birthday, and the crew went out of their way to make it special and memorable. The whole experience was seamless and very organized. Fantastic, 10/10, would recommend.

Granddaughter and I were looking for a new adventure and so we booked a hot air balloon ride for sunrise. It was awesome and our guide Jesse (the very young looking Jesse) was so great. He was professional and experienced but funny and made the ride even better. We had a fun group of people and the ground crew were great too. If you are looking to go hot air ballooning in Phoenix this is the company to use. We loved everything about it and the champagne toast at the end was a nice touch!!
