This activity will end right where it started.
After hotel pickup in Phoenix, you’re transferred to Deer Valley Airport, or make your own way there at your chosen departure time. Once the licensed pilot and experienced crew get your hot air balloon ready for flight, climb inside the basket for the approximate 1-hour ride.

You’ll feel almost motionless as your balloon gently leaves the ground, traveling at speeds of 5–6 mph (8–9.6 kph). Float with the wind on an airy ride at elevations as high as 5,000 feet (1,524 meters). During your breathtaking journey, peer out over the Phoenix valley and enjoy a panoramic vista above the impressive saguaros of the Sonoran Desert.

Exhilaration comes with the sunrise followed by a gourmet breakfast. Upon landing, take part in a ballooning tradition by toasting your aerial tour with chilled Champagne. Then enjoy cuisine catered by the award-winning French-fusion restaurant, Vincent on Camelback. (See sample menus in Itinerary below.)

You’ll receive a commemorative flight certificate and, if you opted for hotel transport, be dropped off in Phoenix to complete your tour.

It’s great experience, and it’s amazing seeing the seeing the sun rise. My only complaint - Wish they would have extended the cover all the way to the end of each side, so when the pivot pulled the flame/fire , it would not be that hot on the top and back of our head.

They cancelled it last minute and couldn’t reschedule, so I didn’t even get to experience this on my trip. Very upsetting.

Hot Air Ballooning was on my bucketlist & today I got to check it off with the best flight crew ever. I chose the hotel transport option, our driver was Gary who was super nice and friendly. We then met our pilot John who was also amazing and really funny. This was my favorite part of visiting AZ, the crew was great, breakfast was light yet delicious, champagne was amazing, the views were breathtaking & the flight was smooth and really a great time. The crew gave very good instructions for how to get in and out of the balloon and gave a lot of information about the area we were flying over. Very informative and fun experience would recommend to EVERYONE!

The Hot Air balloon ride was the experience we most looked forward to on our trip to Sedona. Although we had an hour and 45 minutes ride to get there, the Experience was WONDERFUL! John was Great! He definitely knew how to make it a smooth ride! The other travelers were so chill.
