Honoring last minute requests and additional gestures always have a positive impact - Rainbow ryders phoenix, you won it. I reserved the flight on occasion of my spouse b'day. I requested for some surprise, as I am not sure, what would be possible surprise on hot air ballon flight. Thanks for the banner and warm wishes. You made our day....... More

Money well spent! We did the sunset tour (even though we were done before sun actually set), but no matter. The cloudless sky and little wind made the trip memorable. Avoid standing under the hot, hot burner in the basket if you can-or wear a hat!!

Hot air ballooning was a great experience for my family of 5. My 14 year old was worried...but the trip was so different than what we all expected, there was no time to be scared! From the moment we arrived...at 5:15 am...to the moment our tour was over, we were impressed, entertained, and awed with the beauty a hot air... More

Our first hot air balloon experience. We did the sunrise trip. This company was great and extremely professional from pick up to drop off. Our pilot, Patrick, gave us the biggest "bang for the buck." We went a bit over 9000 feet above sea level. The ground crew was great for getting us in and out of the basket, as... More

My two teenage sons and I recently took a sunrise cruise when we passed through Albuquerque last week on a six state road trip. From the moment we checked in Dean and his crew made us feel comfortable and at ease with the experience. The views of the city were simply amazing for our flight that lasted a little over... More

Our first Hot Air Balloon trip was incredible. A beautiful morning in the North Phoenix valley. The pilot and crew were outstanding and well educated on the sights we were experiencing. Excellent lift off and landing. Great photo ops. Can't wait to do this again, sunset ride the next time.

Our family of four had an amazing hot air ballon ride over Phoenix on our family vacation in June 2015. The staff was super personable and professional and the whole process from start to finish was very organized. Our family was the only one in the smaller balloon and that afforded us to go MUCH higher than any of the... More

This was a really great experience. Starting with rising at 3 a.m. Then heading for the site. We were able to help with the balloon and had a truly wonderful flight. Our pilot Patrick and his helper Chris were helpful. Patrick was a very experienced and well qualified pilot. Loved it and would certainly recommend it to anyone..

Gently floating over north Phoenix eased my fear of heights! Neat experience. So quiet. Eleven people fit comfortably in the basket and Mark was our confident pilot. Landing went smoothly , as we had been prepared. Champagne toast in the desert was fun in the early morning! Our flight was on Halloween of 2013. Now I can watch "my balloon"... More
