Sunrise hot air balloon ride was a 10/10 experience! As someone who is mildly afraid of heights, I was a little nervous going into this. It was the SMOOTHEST ride and SO relaxing! You don’t even realize how high up you are. The desert beauty is breathtaking. I was actually sad when the ride was over. We finished with a yummy breakfast, a toast and certificate for completing the ride. Our pilot, Bill, was AMAZING! So hilarious and made us feel safe. I can’t stop talking about this. I’m so glad I faced my fears. This is a moment I will never forget. Getting up at 4am was worth it. Thank you Hot Air Expeditions!

Loved it. It was a long day but we were comfortable in the van and learned a lot about Arizona. The Grand Canyon was spectacular as was oak creek and Sedona

Fantastic tour! Tour guide was very knowledgeable and very personable. My wife and I really enjoyed the tour. Well worth it!

Great experience for an adventurous bachelorette group like us! Highly recommend.
