Why Travelers Choose This Tour

You should book your balloon ride on day one or two of your Vegas trip as this tour is dependent on weather. Booking early in your trip gives you maximum flexibility if your tour needs to be rescheduled, then you won't miss out on this amazing trip!
Enjoy pickup at select hotels on the Las Vegas Strip (additional cost) or make your own way to the departure point for the approximate 45-minute drive to the Pahrump launch location.

Upon arrival in Pahrump, listen to a short safety briefing from your pilot and guide, then climb into the basket and set off. Soar over Pahrump’s residential areas and the Pahrump Valley; and enjoy unobstructed views of the desert landscapes and mountains.

After the flight, your pilot guides the balloon toward earth. On touchdown, enjoy a Champagne toast and receive a flight certificate.

Following this, return to Las Vegas for drop-off.

Bonus: During the winter months, you are able to choose between a sunrise or sunset departure.
Pass By:  
Las Vegas
Meet at the starting point for a ride by van to nearby Pahrump.
Stop At:  
Upon arrival in Pahrump, watch the crew blow up the balloon before you ascend into the sky. Being in the Pahrump valley allows you to reach a higher altitude than you can in the Vegas valley. Feel the serenity as you enjoy picturesque 360-degree views for approximately one hour with the finest pilots. After your flight, partake in a traditional Champagne celebration before returning to Las Vegas.

Stunning Views
, Jul 2020
Absolutely amazing ride. It was so worth having to get up at 2:30 in the morning. Daniel was a great pilot and happily answered all of our questions about ballooning. He also explained that Vegas allows you to go higher than any other place in the USA because they have no flight restrictions as opposed to other places like Orlando that only allows you to go up 3000 feet. He took us up almost 13000 feet. You can’t go wrong with this company.
Great Experiv

One more thing off my bucket list
, Jun 2020
Jeff was terrific and comes from the same region of France as my wife. He is the best. AWSOME TIME..
One for the bucket list - "Would you like to ride in my beautiful balloon"
, Mar 2020
Wauv - what an experience - free as a bird - if you get the chance - just do it. And the company provides super service - and you are very safe. Don't hesitate - jump right into the basket and fly - simple as that. One of the things, that must be on everybody's bucket list. Up up and away...
A must do in Vegas!
, Mar 2020
Totally worth it!!! We were blessed to enjoy this wonderful experience just before the Vegas Coronavirus shutdown. They drove us 1 hour from Vegas. Our pilot Daniel was very friendly and knowledgeable. We went up to 10,000 feet and it was absolutely beautiful!
False description..Do not book for flying over las vegas!
, Mar 2020
I usually don't write reviews but I would like to leave a review so that people would be aware of our experience. The only reason that I considered this company tour over others is because they mentioned that they would fly over las vegas in the description.Forget about flying over las vegas, we didn't even get a glimpse of the strip. They took us to a place called pahrump and we literally just flew over the houses there(the pilot is afraid of moving away as we might land in a remote place).

Hi Siva, We do not ever promise you will fly over the strip. In fact, if you look at our website, the email confirmations you received, basically everything we have any control over, it is very clear that we fly usually in Pahrump. I don't know if Viator still had old content on their site or you reviewed the wrong offering, but nothing has come from us that said anything like what you mentioned in your review. Additionally, the pilot flew to almost 10,000 feet the morning of your flight and everyone else reported they had a WONDERFUL time. We do understand though that Ballooning isn't for everyone. We do thank you for your review and will continue to try and improve our experience even when we disagree with the feedback. To be clear to everyone that might read this though, we do fly in Pahrump most of the time and usually fly as high as 10,000 feet! You have awesome views of the mountains and desert surrounding the town as well as the town itself. All flights are controlled by mother nature though so flight path, take off and landing differ every day. Come join us for the adventure of a lifetime! Sincerely, Vegas Balloon Rides
Amazing experience

It was an amazing experience! The guys are very good at it!the pilot is very good, explains very well and makes us very safe with the experience

Not sure that it was really what I expected but it was nice. The pilot was very friendly. I wish we could just have more details about what to expect from the tour. We didn’t really fly above much. Just took off after one hour drive from Las Vegas. I don’t even know where we was driven actually. Then had to wait 30 minutes before the balloon was ready. After that we just got up for a few minutes (+-20 minutes?) we didn’t see anything of the city of Las Vegas. Just the houses around and a very far view of the mountains.

Hi Soumeya, We do understand that ballooning isn't for everyone, and we are sorry you didn't have a better experience. Sounds like we did exactly what we promise in our description though. You were in the air about an hour (not 20 minutes), we flew over the desert and you had spectacular views of the mountains and surrounding terrain. I do thank you for the feedback and we will always take it back internally to see if we can improve things for our guests, but we do realize it isn't for everyone. For everyone else though, come join us for the adventure of a lifetime!
Top Notch Experience!
