A hot-air balloon ride over Phoenix is an exhilarating experience, whether at sunrise or sunset (seasonal). After your flight, enjoy a gourmet champagne breakfast or evening hors d'oeuvres for the perfect start or finish to your day.

"A magic carpet ride" and "riding on a cloud" are two phrases that have been used to describe the beauty, exhilaration and gentleness of ballooning. The balloon tour lasts approximately 1 hour with sunrise and sunset (seasonal) flights available.

Even though you travel at speeds of five to six miles per hour, there is virtually no sensation of motion because you are flying with the wind. As you gently leave the ground, you'll be amazed at how light the balloon feels.

During your breathtaking journey, enjoy floating at different elevations from as high up as 5,000-feet (1524-meters) in the air to within feet of the ground. You'll take in gorgeous views of the Sonoran Desert, the impressive giant saguaro cacti and the other local flora and fauna. Upon landing you'll relish in a ballooning tradition - a toast with chilled champagne! Post-flight you will enjoy cuisine catered by the award-winning Vincent's on Camelback.

    I actually booked this tour for two of my friends and they came back totally ecstatic. Neither had been up in a balloon before and were a bit dubious of what to expect but they both had a ball and would highly recommend it. They said the degree of safety was second to none and the views absolutely amazing.

    Everyone should go on a hot air balloon ride at least once! I was a little nervous about what the trip would entail but the excellent staff at Hot Air Expeditions made this an incredible experience for me. I received a phone call the day before my flight confirming the pick up time. The driver Jim picked me up promptly at my hotel the morning of the flight. On the drive out to the launch site, he shared a number of funny stories that made me completely forget that I had been nervous at all about the flight. When we arrived at the site, we got to watch as the crew prepared the balloon for the flight. Our captain Tommy Brown was wonderful. He took us on an smooth, easy flight up to over 6,000 feet. I can't say enough about how safe and relaxing the entire experience felt. It was such a smooth ride, I barely felt like we were moving. But we definitely did! The driver met us at our landing point and had breakfast and champagne ready for us. I'd call it a once in a lifetime experience but I definitely want to do it again!
