You might have to get up early, but its worth it. We were collected by a great bunch of guys and taken to the launch site. Watched in fasination as they put the balloon together (in the dark). It something of a wonder in itself to see the balloon take shape and rise to its takeoff position. The captain, and... More

I have always wanted to do this so my friends suggested we go on a balloon ride when we were in Tucson. It was the most wonderful experience for all of us. We were treated so well and everybody was so helpful through the whole ride. Becky and Mike and their crew were awesome. The scenery was beautiful and so... More

When you're peacefully cruising over the mountains, taking in spectacular desert views, you'll know you've selected the only hot air balloon company in the Tuscon area worth flying with. If the views of the mountain aren't enough to seal the deal, then the views of Tuscon's other balloon companies flying over the freeway and the city, miles from Arizona's beauty... More

My wife purchased the balloon ride as a Christmas gift for me. The balloon ride was awesome, and I can't tell you how great the event was. Mike, the pilot did an excellent job of navigating the balloon and we were able to see, deer, and wild pigs as we traversed along the mountain ridge. Mike and Becky are just... More

We received this wonderful experience as a Christmas gift from our children. We had a terrific time! Mike and Becky are very professional in all aspects of their work. My husband really enjoyed being part of the "crew" when the balloon was inflated and once we landed. Lift off was so smooth that it took a few minutes to realize... More

Becky and Mike run this operation like a family, and you feel just like a cherished family member. I have traveled the world, and this is an experience I will always remember. Safe, fun, beautiful, breathtaking, relaxed, special, memorable. The only hard part was getting up at 4am............and it's well worth it!

It was beautiful to see the sunrise early in the morning. To fly over the mountains and see the deer and the Javelines running. I would do it again. It is well worth the money.

It was an amazing trip, the pilot made me feel at ease even with my uneasiness with heights, I would like to go again right now, but I must wait until my next trip to Tucson. There is no better way to view the desert scenery!

Becky was a great hostess, Mike a first-rate and extremely experienced pilot, the ground crew pleasant and efficient, and the small basket (5 passengers maximum) made the trip very enjoyable and the balloon responsive. We had a wonderful time and are happy to recommend Fleur de Tucson for an unforgettable experience.
