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.

Amazing Sunrise Adventure
Joanna_F

This hot air experience was an incredible way to celebrate our 10th wedding anniversary. I had originally hoped for a sunset ride, but opted for the sunrise ride instead given we were in Phoenix in June. We couldn’t have asked for a more memorable experience. The morning was cool and comfortable, our pilot - Bill - was fantastic. Funny, knowledgeable, and clearly in love with his profession. The Champaign and French breakfast afterwards were such a treat. I would 100% do this again.

Hi Joanna, Thank you for your review and for flying with Hot Air Expeditions!! It makes me so happy to hear that we were able to help make good memories for you that will last forever. You were in great hands with Bill and his crew, you are absolutely correct when you say it shows that he loves what he does as do all our pilots/crew. We hope to see you up, up, and away with us again sometime soon.

John was an excellent pilot, his crew did a nice job as well. Food was good. Wish we could have seen more country, but I understand that can’t be controlled.
