My husband and I met three other couples in Phoenix for a weekend getaway/reunion, and one of them brought a coupon from Travel Zoo for $400 off a booking of eight or more. Sweet! We were a party of eight! That meant half-off our balloon flight! We booked just two days in advance, and were told to meet in a... More

I am not impressed with this company, and they caused us to have a terrible experience with Adventures Out West/Unicorn Balloon Company. To start off, I made reservations for my balloon ride three months in advance. I planned this as a birthday gift for my mom's 50th birthday. All she'd wanted to do for her birthday for the longest time... More

As my friend and and I drove from SE Chandler area, to the NW Cave Creek area at 3:30 in the morning we questioned our wisdom. Here we were ...two middle aged women .... driving to meet a fellow (we don't know) in the corner of a parking lot , half an hour before sunrise so he could drive us... More

We have had ballooning on our bucket list for a long time and so took the opportunity of the good weather in Phoenix to give it a try. What a wonderful experience. We'd gladly take another ride, although not in the desert - we just aren't desert people - that isn't a reflection on the experience, however, merely that we... More

Pilot John Bagwell is well experienced and quite humorous. This was the experience of a lifetime, surreal, serene with a quiet that I have never heard before. The views of the desert were awesome. Like John said now that I crossed this one off my bucket list I need to add two more, going to be hard pressed to find... More

Unicorn Balloon Company took me on my very first hot air balloon ride, and I had an absolute blast! I opted for the sunrise ride, and despite the very early meeting time (7am in Cave Creek, which is about 45 minutes away from Phoenix), it was completely worth it to see the first glimmers of dawn spread over the desert,...

What a great experience!!! These guys really look after you well - it's more than just going up and down in a hot air balloon (which is pretty amazing in itself). The history, the stories, the (bad) jokes, the descriptions of what you're seeing, the champagne and nibbles on landing, i could go on and on about how totally awesome... More

I did a lot of searching on the internet for a balloon company for our visit to Scottsdale November 2010. It was hard to tell which one was the better company, there are large firms and small. This company caught my eye when they stated "we are no longer the largest in the area, but we are the best!". After... More
