49 Reviews

  • Location: Phoenix, Arizona
  • Duration: 3 hours 30 minutes (approx.)
  • Tour code: 5095HOT
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.


  • Choice of several departures throughout the day
  • Enjoy fantastic aerial views
  • Romantic experience, perfect for couples
"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.

    Captain Mike and the entire staff were excellent. I am not good with heights but did this hot air balloon ride for my wife's 50th birthday and I am so glad I did. A once in a lifetime type event, I highly recommend it.
