What to Expect What to Expect

"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.
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.
Your time up, up and away is approximately 45-60 minutes. 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 LOVED this adventure. The Captain was friendly and funny- -yet, I had complete confidence that we were in good hands. The views were stunning . . . especially as the sun began to set. It seemed like every minute I was able to take another picture that was even more colorful than the one before. I would suggest wearing a jacket as it gets pretty cool when the sun goes down. After our thrilling ride, the crew had set up a candlelit dinner complete with a champagne toast, bbq duck pizza, quiche and truffles. I highly recommend!!

A fantastic experience. It was so quiet up there and you could see for miles. The crew were very professional and friendly. The champagne breakfast at the end finished it off perfectly.

I absolutely excellent. The crew and pilot (Bill) were knowledgeable, friendly and patient. The day could not have been better - unless of course bathrooms had been available. But, you can not have everything. Seriously, this was super!

It was fabulous. The tour operator was terrific. They were very professional but fun. We felt safe the entire time. The ride was amazing not scary like I anticipated. It didn't even feel like we were in the air or moving. And the breakfast was beautiful. I would highly recommend this tour.

This Hot Air Ballon Ride was amazing. Had a fabulous time celebrating my sister in laws early 50th Birthday. Picture perfect day for weather. The whole experience was great thanks to Bill the Capitan and his entire crew. Bill made the trip what it was. His humour and wit kept us laughing the entire time. The crew went out of their way when breakfast was served. They could not do enough for us. The experience is something I will remember forever.

This was great! We met at the Deer Valley Airport to park (that was the only thing not clear since GPS was wrong but they answered the phone and redirected me, so no problem) and then went in a van to the balloon. We watched them fill it and were given good information and history of ballooning. It was quite informative and very interesting and FUN! The breakfast was yummy and too bad I couldn't drink more champagne because I was driving. I highly recommend it!

Everything was spot on. As a foreigner, the most important thing for me was the hotel pick-up which made it all possible. The nerves jangled furiously during the first 10 minutes, after which I calmed down and enjoyed it immensely. The driver was great, the pilot was amusing, the ground crew were professional and the after flight picnic was easy-going and leisurely.

Awesome experience! Our pilot was amazing and made everyone feel very safe during the flight. He had a great sense of humor which added to the overall experience. We flew quite high up (just over 8,000 feet) and took in a beautiful desert sunrise!

An amazing experience. This totally lived up to all expectations and more. Our driver and pilot were very helpful and amusing! This is defiantly a tick off the bucket list. The photos you will get from this tour are just breathtaking! Well worth the money - very well organised.

The people who operated this tour were very helpful, friendly and attentive of our needs. We started the morning by seeing how the ballon is inflated and the ride was set up. The pilot and his assistant look after us and served us breakfast in the desert after the ballon trip was completed. The experience was wonderful and I would recommend anyone wanting to try hot air ballon ride to do so with this company
