We had so much fun on the balloon ride! Waking up early for the sunrise tour was so worth it! I would advise eating before you go up in you get uneasy with heights (I felt a little sick but I think it was because I didn't eat).The crew and the guide was amazing! Such a beautiful experience. I would... More

The pilot and ground crew were excellent. There were 3 parties in our group, 10 people total (4 in my party.) We were all given a high degree of individual attention. I don't have experience with the other companies, but am confident we got the best value for our flight.

This was not my first hot air balloon ride, but it was for my friend--she loved every minute of the experience and I was impressed by the absolute professionalism of Patrick, our pilot. A+++ and thank you, Patrick

Purchased this trip for my husband's birthday present. We were both extremely happy with the experience. The staff were all friendly and funny and always professional. Felt very safe in their hands. Took our children ages 13 and 10 and they enjoyed the experience as well - everything except getting up early!! Perfect way to start off our family vacation... More

We took the sunrise ride in Phoenix and the Rainbow Ryders are a great group that really made our trip a great one. Everyone was really friendly and more than willing to answer questions. The view was beautiful and take off and landing were a fun experience. We would definitely go again.

This experience is great for solo, couples, group travelers. Wake up early and set out by 5am for a unique view of the Phoenix desert. Our trip lasted about 80 minutes and gave us a view of Phoenix, and it's Saguaro cacti, jackrabbit, birds, and even a coyote. Everything is well-planned, coordinated and professional. Once you're back on land there... More
