What You Can Expect

Phoenix Hot Air Balloon Ride

Phoenix Hot Air Balloon Ride

"A magic carpet ride" and "riding on a cloud" are two phrases that have been used to describe the beauty, exhilaration and gentleness of ballooning. The balloon tour lasts approximately 1 hour with sunrise and sunset (seasonal) flights available.

Even though you travel at speeds of five to six miles per hour, there is virtually no sensation of motion because you are flying with the wind. As you gently leave the ground, you'll be amazed at how light the balloon feels.

During your breathtaking journey, enjoy floating at different elevations from as high up as 5,000-feet (1524-meters) in the air to within feet of the ground. You'll take in gorgeous views of the Sonoran Desert, the impressive giant saguaro cacti and the other local flora and fauna. Upon landing you'll relish in a ballooning tradition - a toast with chilled champagne! Post-flight you will enjoy cuisine catered by the award-winning Vincent’s on Camelback.

This was a great balloon ride! Capt Mike D and crew Nick, Dean and Joe took very good care of us. Worth getting up early to see the valley from above! Had ages from 7 to 80 in our gondola and all enjoyed it. Think the sunset flight would be good too but not offered in summer due to high temps.

A fantastic experience. It was so quiet up there and you could see for miles. The crew were very professional and friendly. The champagne breakfast at the end finished it off perfectly.

I absolutely excellent. The crew and pilot (Bill) were knowledgeable, friendly and patient. The day could not have been better - unless of course bathrooms had been available. But, you can not have everything. Seriously, this was super!
