Phoenix Hot Air Balloon Morning Ride

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
A drive through the Sonoran Desert just doesn’t do it justice—the desert expands over 100,000 square miles (260,000 square kilometers) total. One of the best ways to get the views you’re hoping for is a hot-air balloon ride, and this morning tour from Phoenix gets you up in the air with an FAA-licensed pilot to catch sight of the sunrise. Plus, afterward, you can enjoy a Champagne breakfast by your landing spot.
  • See expansive Sonoran Desert views on this morning hot-air balloon ride
  • Feel safe on your sunrise ride with an experienced FAA-licensed pilot
  • Get the chance to chat about your flight over a Champagne breakfast
  • Upgrade to add hotel pickup and drop-off from Phoenix for convenience
What to Expect
This hot-air balloon ride starts at the time you chose when booking. If you chose to upgrade to add hotel pickup, you’ll be picked up from your Phoenix hotel, otherwise make your own way over to the Deer Valley Airport. Once you arrive, your crew for the day gets your balloon ready to go. Your FAA-licensed pilot makes sure you have a safe ride up in the air. Take off and fly up to take in views over the Sonoran Desert. Catch views of the beautiful landscape, cacti, wildlife, and sun as it rises for the morning. Afterward, back on the ground, enjoy a Champagne breakfast, and chat about your flight experience. Your hot-air balloon ride tour ends with hotel drop-off (if you’ve chosen to upgrade), or right where you are.

My dad and I went as a belated graduation gift (6years late!) and it was so wonderful! The crew was amazing, and photos cannot do the view justice. Would absolutely recommend for couples but small groups are great too!

The morning ride with Tommy could not have been better. We were driven in a van from the airport by Anthony to a field. Which field for take off depends on wind. You watch the whole set up of getting the basket and balloon in place for take off. The Basket was comfortable to

Pilot Tommy Brown and driver Nick were excellent! First time on a balloon ride and it was awesome. I would highly recommend this company.

I went alone after a conference. If you're short on time and are looking for a one of a kind experience, this is it..if you are willing to get up a bit early. The pilot Tommy, driver Anthony, and their crew are fantastic and take very good care of you.

Capt Tommy was the best, skilled at his craft and fun to be around. Our group had a great experience and breakfast in the desert was just the cherry on top.
