Phoenix Hot Air Balloon Ride is a great company, Always a prompt and courteous reply to questions, no matter how many you may have. Hotel Pick-Up was on time and Mike our driver was helpful, courteous and professional. On our ride to the location where the balloon takes off he filled us in on local history, events and many other items about the area we were traveling through. Mike would also make a great tour guide. Our pilot was Michael a many year veteran of piloting balloons. Unfortunately we did not get to experience the ride itself. Michael tried desperately to find the right location to launch but due to wind conditions he was not taking the chance. He was more than apologetic and was just as disappointed as the group that was to be on the ride (12 in total). Michael's saying is "Better to be safe on the ground than Sorry in the air! Thank you Michael, we truly appreciate your efforts. We would highly recommend Phoenix Hot Air Balloon Ride. Hope to try again!

The many positive reviews of this tour are correct. It’s great! If you don’t have a lot of time, seeing both Sedona and the Grand Canyon in the same day is wonderful. I assume all the guides are very good. Certainly, ours, Tyson, was excellent and added a great deal to our enjoyment and knowledge of the tour! He had lots of great stories, background and trivia! Little things like frequent stops and complimentary water were appreciated. Also, Tyson’s continuing and precise explanation of what we’re doing, where we’re going, where we’re stopping and for how long made for a seamless journey. [Be ready, though.....it’s a long day...12 to 13 hours.]

Our guide, Zane, was very knowledgeable about history for each part of our trip. He maximized our time and made the day very memorable. Highly recommend the day trip to Sedona, Navajo Nation, and the Grand Canyon. If you are interested in trying local eats, recommend the Navajo Taco and the Prickly Pear Milkshake!

My husband and I went for my birthday, both first timers. It was fantastic!! The guide was very experienced and we felt very safe. The staff was also amazing, the went out of their way and made me feel very special with a birthdate cake after breakfast. Would definitely recommend.

Chris was a great guide to the Grand Canyon and gave a phenomenal experience
