My daughter, a friend and I went ballooning and we thought we'd be terrified, but the total opposite happened. It was such a peaceful feeling floating so high. Mark our pilot was very calming and informative. You are in great hands with him and his crew. I would recommend them to anybody.

My wife and I had an amazing flight! Our pilot was very friendly and easy to speak to. The whole crew was really nice and were helpful in taking pictures of us. I was pleasantly surprised at the end of the ride when they popped open the champagne and had juice and bagels for us. We had the best time... More

This experience was worth every dollar spent. Cannot begin to describe the feeling of floating 5000 ft over the Sonora desert. The crew were efficient, courteous and very professional. Our pilot Mark was great. He was very informative from start to finish which made us all feel safe. Great sense of humour as well. Thanks for making our first hot... More

Rainbow Ryders ensured that my mother and I had an unforgettable experience. Our Pilot, Mark, had invaluable knowledge of hot air balloons and their equipment. Not only was Mark knowledgeable on balloons, but he knew EVERYTHING about the desert, and was very personable. I will definitely experience another hot air balloon ride through the expertise of Rainbow Ryders.

I was in Scottsdale for a conference and I ended up staying in Arizona for vacation an additional four days. The first thing I did was drive a short distance to Rainbow Ryders in Phoenix to take a sunrise hot air balloon ride. Although the sun was already rising when we all met up at the office and drove to... More
