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.
What to Expect
This sunset hot-air balloon ride in Phoenix meets at Deer Valley Airport. You can choose to upgrade to add on transport to the airport, if you’d like.

At the airport, watch as your pilot and crew prepare the hot-air balloon for flight. Once they’re ready, your balloon takes off.

Enjoy stunning views over the Sonoran Desert, including areas covered in saguaro cacti. Your flight goes as high up as 5,000 feet (1,524 meters).

Back on the ground, sip on Champagne while nibbling hors d'oeuvres. Your tour ends at Deer Valley Airport unless you’ve chosen to upgrade to add transport back to your hotel.

It is cooler, so we wore light jackets. If you do a morning ride, It will be quite cool while you're waiting for the balloon to inflate, etc. I prefer the afternoon rides -- I'm not an early riser. And, yes, the burner... More
