Return Details

Returns to original departure point
After hotel pickup in Phoenix, you’re transferred to Deer Valley Airport, or make your own way there at your chosen departure time. Once the licensed pilot and experienced crew get your hot air balloon ready for flight, climb inside the basket for the approximate 1-hour ride.

You’ll feel almost motionless as your balloon gently leaves the ground, traveling at speeds of 5–6 mph (8–9.6 kph). Float with the wind on an airy ride at elevations as high as 5,000 feet (1,524 meters). During your breathtaking journey, peer out over the Phoenix valley and enjoy a panoramic vista above the impressive saguaros of the Sonoran Desert.

Exhilaration comes with the sunrise followed by a gourmet breakfast. Upon landing, take part in a ballooning tradition by toasting your aerial tour with chilled Champagne. Then enjoy cuisine catered by the award-winning French-fusion restaurant, Vincent on Camelback. (See sample menus in Itinerary below.)

You’ll receive a commemorative flight certificate and, if you opted for hotel transport, be dropped off in Phoenix to complete your tour.

It wasn’t the company’s fault. The wind was too bad for us to take the trip. Our trip was canceled and the next available time was after we left Arizona. We are having trouble getting our money back

The most memorable part of the flight was being 5,600 feet above the ground and seeing how beautiful Arizona is ! I loved how our flight captain Mike England knew Arizona so well and basically gave me a geographic class of certain features of the Arizona desert !

Worth it in the end

The actual balloon ride was great! Beautiful views and an amazing experience. There was an issue with my pick up (they picked up the wrong person from my hotel) that was eventually resolved after multiple phone calls, but this caused me to be late and miss the safety speech and seeing the balloon inflated from the beginning. I literally got there in time to get in the balloon. If you offer pick up and have people pay extra for it you should get it right. They admitted they didn’t verify the name of the passenger before taking her, so I hope they start doing that in the future. The balloon is a tight squeeze and not as easy to get into as they make it seem but it’s worth it when you get up there.

Amazing! Our pilot was super friendly and funny and most importantly, one heck of a pilot. He really knows his stuff. The rest of the crew was so polite and also very informative. I would highly recommend this experience and crew to anyone looking for an incredible experience in Phoenix.
