What people are saying about Phoenix

Sunrise hot air balloon ride was a 10/10 experience! As someone who is mildly afraid of heights, I was a little nervous going into this. It was the SMOOTHEST ride and SO relaxing! You don’t even realize how high up you are. The desert beauty is breathtaking. I was actually sad when the ride was over. We finished with a yummy breakfast, a toast and certificate for completing the ride. Our pilot, Bill, was AMAZING! So hilarious and made us feel safe. I can’t stop talking about this. I’m so glad I faced my fears. This is a moment I will never forget. Getting up at 4am was worth it. Thank you Hot Air Expeditions!

Our flight with Jonathan and his crew was amazing. It was such an enjoyable experience. Our kids ages 11 and 9 enjoyed it too! The early morning arrival is a little rough, but seeing the sunrise come over the mountains was spectacular! I would do this again in a heartbeat! The champagne toast and breakfast was also great. You eat wherever the balloon lands which for us was in an open area with mountains on either side. You should do it!!

A superb experience. Wasn't sure what to expect in all honesty but very glad we booked this. Very peaceful floating over the Sonoran desert. Our pilot Bill was very experienced, put everyone at ease from the start and his knowledge and wit during the ride all added to the day. The champagne breakfast at 730am in the desert was unreal. Thank you guys. Ps ,,, watch out for the cacti when wandering around. They are a real pain.

A wonderful "first" ride for an 80th birthday celebration! From the booking to the drop-off at the end, this company exceeded expectations. They are organized, personable and safe and the pilot and crew were top-notch. Highly skilled, knowledgable, and all with a dash of quick wit and humor made our ride most enjoyable.

Great activity overall. A lot of fun and excitement
