Take in gorgeous views of the Sonoran Desert and feel like you’re floating on a cloud during an exhilarating hot air balloon ride from Phoenix. You’ll experience the perfect start to your day followed by Champagne breakfast. Each flight lasts about an hour, with optional round-trip transport from your hotel.
  • Spectacular views over the Phoenix valley
  • Includes a champagne breakfast
  • Watch the pilot and crew prepare the hot-air balloon for flight
  • Revel in peace, calm and serenity as panoramic views unfold before you
  • Take flight with an experienced FAA licensed pilot
After hotel pickup in Phoenix, you’re transferred to Deer Valley Airport, or make your own way there at your chosen departure time. Once the licensed pilot and experienced crew get your hot air balloon ready for flight, climb inside the basket for the approximate 1-hour ride.

You’ll feel almost motionless as your balloon gently leaves the ground, traveling at speeds of 5–6 mph (8–9.6 kph). Float with the wind on an airy ride at elevations as high as 5,000 feet (1,524 meters). During your breathtaking journey, peer out over the Phoenix valley and enjoy a panoramic vista above the impressive saguaros of the Sonoran Desert.

Exhilaration comes with the sunrise followed by a gourmet breakfast. Upon landing, take part in a ballooning tradition by toasting your aerial tour with chilled Champagne. Then enjoy cuisine catered by the award-winning French-fusion restaurant, Vincent on Camelback. (See sample menus in Itinerary below.)

You’ll receive a commemorative flight certificate and, if you opted for hotel transport, be dropped off in Phoenix to complete your tour.

This was on my bucket list and I am so glad I did it! Great experience altogether. Loved the brunch too. I did not give it 5 stars only because by the time we left, we missed the sunrise.
Great balloon ride excursion.

The Pilot Jonathan was very skilled and entertaining. Ask for this Pilot. A great Balloon experience followed by a true gourmet brunch by Vincents in the field you land in. First class.
Fantastic experience!!

Our balloon ride was fantastic. Would recommend it highly. No hiccups whatsoever. Todd our driver and part of the balloon crew was very knowledgeable. Tommy the pilot with 14 years of flying experience put my fears to rest. The ride was so smooth and uneventful but the experience is everlasting!!
Nice morning

It was a nice experience. Captain Tommy and crew Ken were amazing. Take off, flight and landing were smooth. Breakfast in a dessert was a amazing experience.
Don’t miss this!

Don’t miss this! Experience of a lifetime. So happy to cross this off my bucket list , but would absolutely do it again with same company if in the PHX area again . Our Captain Bill was hilarious which made the experience that much better. My 28yr old daughter joined me and loved it too! No regrets, highly recommend. Amazing photo opportunity. Should be a must on your priority list !!!
Great experience
