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 was the most amazing experience! The crew was super friendly, it's nice and early so that is really important! Made sure to keep us entertained and informed. The views were to die for! The landing was my absolute favorite part lol be prepared for anything to happen but DEFINITELY worth it! It's not even that scary! It's just breathtaking. Recalibration at its finest. Oh and but the glass! I didn't, I'm home now and really wish I did lol. Just means I have to go back!

Choose wisely.

Crew appeared confused and not able to operate equipment properly. The flight was really short and only traversed suburban areas, highway, and a construction site. One pilot appeared to maneuver ridiculously close to power lines. Next time I won’t book a trip from Glendale and will look for a launch site further out of town and a crew that is better managed and more professional.

This is always been a desire of my wife and I to take a balloon ride. I was able to surprise her with this ride. According to her the views were spectacular! The captain, and all the staff were incredibly friendly, professional, And knowledgeable. Everything was first class! The champagne breakfast in the desert was the icing on the cake. Thank you hot balloon experiences for the wonderful incredible unforgettable memory. Beth and Jerry
