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.

Quality experience and amazing guides

I booked this trip for my wife's 40th bday bucket lost celebration. Couldn't be happier with this company and hot air balooning in general. The whole experience was surreal. We lucked out and had fantastic conditions with no wind which made for a peaceful and quiet flight Our guides Jim and Jonathan were top notch and gave us the history of the origins of hot air baloons. Both seasoned guides and very friendly, knowledgeable,and funny! And the breakfast and champagne toast at the end was the perfect way to end it. We highly recommend Hot Air Expeditions and would do it again in a heartbeat! 5 Star rating!

Would Definitely Do It Again!

Went with my brother (first balloon ride) and old roommate (second balloon ride). This was my third balloon ride. Trip was so well organized. This ride was unique because there were 12 balloons, not just one. Did not expect that. Really enjoyed watching balloons navigating to different heights. Also enjoyed floating by all the different terrain. Our guide (Bill) was awesome! 42 years flying balloons. So funny. Engaged all of us (I think there were 10 of us). One group was celebrating a birthday. We all sang Happy Birthday and Bill presented us with a birthday cake. The breakfast was so beautiful. White linen, mimosas, fruit and breakfast quiche. Bill and the crew SPOILED US ROTTEN!!!
