Overview
Most Sonoran Desert off-roading tours may take you off-the-beaten path, but they still don’t offer 360-degree views of the stunning desert landscape. During this hot air balloon ride from Phoenix, take to the air for the best vantage point of the area. And, as a bonus, see the sunrise, too. After your flight, reminisce about the beauty of the Sonoran Desert over a Champagne breakfast.

We are very happy to hear that you enjoyed your sunrise flight with Kyle! He is an amazing pilot and loves to provide our passengers with the most memorable experiences. FFA regulations do require a certain amount of light to be visible before flying (otherwise we need special equipment to legally launch our balloons). We love to give you a beautiful landscape for your flight, which is why we stress the importance of arriving on time for check-in. We want to ensure you are able to see the most of sunrise as possible, while still following FFA regulations. We hope you will come back and fly with us again soon!
