Overview
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.

Highlights
  • 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.

Did a sunrise hot air balloon ride this morning with Marcus and Captain John! The experience was incredible to say the least. Both of them were so positive and made it enjoyable from start to finish. My ride included a proposal and they did a phenomenal job making it special!

Had a fantastic time celebrating my engagement with Hot Air Expeditions. First class experience from start to finish. Arrived early in the morning to be driven to the launch spot by Nick, who was knowledgeable and answered all of our questions about the ballooning experience.
