Sunset Over The Sonoran Desert
Jeffery_F
, Mar 2020
This is an awesome thing to do. I did the sunset ride with Jonathan. He was an excellent pilot (I guess that's what he's called). The weather was beautiful and our basket had an interesting group of people on board. Jonathan knew everything about ballooning and knew a lot about the area we were in. There were 9 or 10 balloons that lifted off within minutes of each other. It was absolutely beautiful and the visibility was near 100 miles...we could see the mountains in Flagstaff! This ride included a mini meal at the end with champagne. Tables set up in the desert as we watched the sunset over the mountains! I can't wait to get back into Phoenix and bring family the next time!

Beautiful views. Not so easy to enter and exit the basket with little explanation. We were told an address for drop off and pick up that wasn’t correct for an Uber.

We’ve been looking forward to the ride and we’re not disappointed! It was amazing. It was a birthday gift for our 12 year old grandson and a bucket list item for us and his parents. And, our pilot Bill was knowledgeable and entertaining!

Thank you for sharing about your hot air ballooning experience! We are so happy to hear you had a wonderful birthday celebration among the clouds. There is nothing quite like a bucket list check to celebrate a special occasion! Captain Bill loves what he does, and we are happy you were able to gain some hot air ballooning knowledge from your time spent with him. Thank you again for sharing about your experience, we hope to see you up, up and away again soon!

I LOVED this adventure. The Captain was friendly and funny- -yet, I had complete confidence that we were in good hands. The views were stunning . . . especially as the sun began to set. It seemed like every minute I was able to take another picture that was even more colorful than the one before. I would suggest wearing a jacket as it gets pretty cool when the sun goes down. After our thrilling ride, the crew had set up a candlelit dinner complete with a champagne toast, bbq duck pizza, quiche and truffles. I highly recommend!!

I absolutely excellent. The crew and pilot (Bill) were knowledgeable, friendly and patient. The day could not have been better - unless of course bathrooms had been available. But, you can not have everything. Seriously, this was super!

This Hot Air Ballon Ride was amazing. Had a fabulous time celebrating my sister in laws early 50th Birthday. Picture perfect day for weather. The whole experience was great thanks to Bill the Capitan and his entire crew. Bill made the trip what it was. His humour and wit kept us laughing the entire time. The crew went out of their way when breakfast was served. They could not do enough for us. The experience is something I will remember forever.

It was fabulous. The tour operator was terrific. They were very professional but fun. We felt safe the entire time. The ride was amazing not scary like I anticipated. It didn't even feel like we were in the air or moving. And the breakfast was beautiful. I would highly recommend this tour.

This was great! We met at the Deer Valley Airport to park (that was the only thing not clear since GPS was wrong but they answered the phone and redirected me, so no problem) and then went in a van to the balloon. We watched them fill it and were given good information and history of ballooning. It was quite informative and very interesting and FUN! The breakfast was yummy and too bad I couldn't drink more champagne because I was driving. I highly recommend it!
