Return Details

Returns to original departure point
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.

Best Thing I’ve ever done

This was a bucket list item and if it’s on anyone’s bucket list - do it!! This was amazing, our Driver Joseph was so fun, our balloon pilot John rocked!!! The entire morning was phenomenal. We had breakfast after and it was delicious. I’d give this 10 stars if I could. These guys were professional and for someone who doesn’t like to fly - I’d go again in a heartbeat. A little clarification, take a hat…. Not for the sun, but the flame above you is kinda warm, the hat helps!!

Hi Megan! We're so glad to hear our crew member Joseph and pilot John provided such an amazing experience! Our crew have a passion for ballooning and it shows! We hope that you'll come fly with us again soon!
