Overview
Traveling the Sonoran Desert by ground just doesn’t give you the same views an aerial vantage point can. Take to the skies during this Phoenix hot-air balloon ride at one of the most stunning times of day: sunset. Along with a flight led by an FAA-licensed pilot, you can enjoy Champagne and hors d'oeuvres after your time in the air.

The overall experience was great but some details made it not exceptional. The majority of the balloons flew over the mountains and the lake, we could se them from afar because we flew in the opposite direction and spent a long time still above the highway. I’m sure their view

I’ll be honest, I was pretty excited for this ballon ride. I had always wanted to go on one, so my expectations were pretty high. This somehow surpassed them. It was so cool to watch them launch streaming flames into the balloon to inflate it and tip the basket upright. Lifting
