Would highly recommend trying this even if you are afraid of heights! Our pilot was experienced and knowledgeable. Breakfast and champagne to follow was a nice inclusion. Would do it again. Thanks Captain John for an unforgettable day!

The staff was courteous and efficient. I am grateful for the recommendations the rep gave me before the trip dress warm in layers for the morning flight, wear a hat, sunscreen, closed-toe shoes. I would also recommend ear plugs - the burners/jets are loud. I enjoyed it and I thank Jesus for the opportunity to fulfill this dream .

Loved the balloon ride. Had hoped to actually see the sunrise, but was probably able to see more with the time that we left. It was a beautiful ride! Loved our pilot, Al. He was the best and I appreciated that he told his crew that they did a good job in getting the balloon ready. The landing.... Yeah, about that. LOVED IT! Had a wonderful breakfast with mimosas when we landed. Would definitely do this again!

Bucket list. CHECK.
This was an amazing experience. I went alone, as I was visiting the area for business. I would recommend it for everyone who wants to try something new. I'm usually afraid of heights, but you can't even tell how high in the air you are!

My friend Michele was recently visiting me from Paris France and was looking for some out of the ordinary ways to see the beautiful deserts of the Phoenix area so I suggested a Phoenix Hot Air Balloon Ride and boy was I glad we did! Our Captain, Captain Chad and driver Denin made this event joyful, interesting, fascinating, and thrilling as the Balloon raised to heights of 6000 ft and lowered to the point we could almost reach out and touch the plant life below our basket of 12 passengers. The scenery was exhilarating as the balloon followed the slight wind current traveling almost 10 miles in the hour long flight. The Captain pointed out areas of interest, named plant and animal life, explained how Hot Air Balloons operate, and even gave us the history lesson of the very first Hot Air Balloon flight which took place in the 1700s in France! After this delightful cruise through the air currents, the crew served us a fitting breakfast and toasted the success of the trip with Champagne... My friend Michele from France was thrilled as was I. Recommended tour with true Hot Air Balloon professionals at the helm, 10 out of 10 stars!

Check this one off the bucket list! Very nice people running this operation. I was amazed at how big the basket is! and the Balloon. My only negative is that it was too short of a trip. It said an hour ride, but because of the wind/weather conditions it was more like 35 maybe 40 min.
The breakfast was OK...most importantly, it was nice to sit together at the end of this experience to share a little more.

I actually booked this tour for two of my friends and they came back totally ecstatic. Neither had been up in a balloon before and were a bit dubious of what to expect but they both had a ball and would highly recommend it. They said the degree of safety was second to none and the views absolutely amazing.

Everyone should go on a hot air balloon ride at least once! I was a little nervous about what the trip would entail but the excellent staff at Hot Air Expeditions made this an incredible experience for me. I received a phone call the day before my flight confirming the pick up time. The driver Jim picked me up promptly at my hotel the morning of the flight. On the drive out to the launch site, he shared a number of funny stories that made me completely forget that I had been nervous at all about the flight. When we arrived at the site, we got to watch as the crew prepared the balloon for the flight. Our captain Tommy Brown was wonderful. He took us on an smooth, easy flight up to over 6,000 feet. I can't say enough about how safe and relaxing the entire experience felt. It was such a smooth ride, I barely felt like we were moving. But we definitely did! The driver met us at our landing point and had breakfast and champagne ready for us. I'd call it a once in a lifetime experience but I definitely want to do it again!

Captain Mike and the entire staff were excellent. I am not good with heights but did this hot air balloon ride for my wife's 50th birthday and I am so glad I did. A once in a lifetime type event, I highly recommend it.

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.
