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.

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!!!

Great, but...

The trip overall was great. Bill was out pilot, and he was very knowledgeable and humorous. The views were spectacular! We enjoyed the flight! I was disappointed that the trip did not follow the 10 passenger limit as stated in the posting and emails sent to me. We had 11 passengers and the pilot. We choose to wear out masks the whole time but others did not. Also, I realized that I was charged over 1/3 more by booking through Viator than if I had booked directly through the provider as stated in the emails sent to me through Viator by the provider. So I essentially paid for an additional rider because of Viator’s upcharge. Still waiting to hear back in this policy. So, definitely take the trip, just book directly with the provider for the true lowest price!

Our flight got canceled while we were traveling to the take off point because of one lightning strike way off in the distance. I get safety and maybe that was the right call. HOWEVER....you should have an extra balloon the next day for people that are still vacationing to RESCHEDULE. Very disappointed that it was a sorry , can’t do anything about it because we are booked. I have two girls that were very upset and disappointed!!!

Fun hot air balloon trip with a beautiful sunrise

I really enjoyed my hot air balloon trip with Bill and Todd. Everything was very organized and I received a phone call with the pickup time and Todd was right there on time to pick me up. Bill was a great pilot with a good sense of humor and explained everything really well. The champagne breakfast afterwards was delicious. Todd even took some photos of our balloon going up in flight which was really nice to have as a souvenir. They give you a flight certificate at the end. It was a really nice experience and a highlight of my trip to Phoenix.

This was my first time and oh boy it was a beautiful sight to see. One of my favorite experiences by far. I did the sunrise flight and it was breathtaking. We had a rough landing but everyone was safe and we were able to laugh about it after. While enjoying our complimentary champagne and breakfast. The best part is I caught it all in video. My Polaroid camera broke during our landing but it was still worth the experience. Highly recommend everyone to try.

Thank you for joining us up, up and away Jessica! We are happy to hear you had a great time and enjoyed viewing the desert from up above. So sorry to hear about your camera! Some landings are bumpier than others, but we always do our best to make things as smooth as possible, with the conditions that Mother Nature provides. Thank you for taking the time to share your experience with others, we hope to see you among the clouds again soon!
