Highlights
  • See expansive Sonoran Desert views on this morning hot-air balloon ride
  • Feel safe on your sunrise ride with an experienced FAA-licensed pilot
  • Get the chance to chat about your flight over a Champagne breakfast
  • Upgrade to add hotel pickup and drop-off from Phoenix for convenience
What to Expect
This hot-air balloon ride starts at the time you chose when booking. If you chose to upgrade to add hotel pickup, you’ll be picked up from your Phoenix hotel, otherwise make your own way over to the Deer Valley Airport. Once you arrive, your crew for the day gets your balloon ready to go. Your FAA-licensed pilot makes sure you have a safe ride up in the air. Take off and fly up to take in views over the Sonoran Desert. Catch views of the beautiful landscape, cacti, wildlife, and sun as it rises for the morning. Afterward, back on the ground, enjoy a Champagne breakfast, and chat about your flight experience. Your hot-air balloon ride tour ends with hotel drop-off (if you’ve chosen to upgrade), or right where you are.

This was a bucket list kind of thing. And what better people than to have Captain Kyle and assistant Nick to guide us through the process from setting up the balloon to landing it in the dessert. To silently float in the air as we did was indescribable....words just don't do it
