We went with Northern Light Balloon Expeditions since they launch so close to Sedona. The pickup and launch was right on time and we were in the air for a gorgeous sunrise. Granted we have only flown with Tom and Doug once but they have to be the best crew. No messing around, just perfection. I appreciated how all the... More

Our pickup driver was late and we had to go with another company at the last minute. Lady on the phone at northern light was very rude and not helpful at all. I would suggest going with Red Rock Hot Air Balloon. They were very nice and care about their customers.

It was awesome, because of the time change we were up early the first morning in Sedona and saw hot air balloons and thought it would be a great place to do it. We asked at the front desk of our hotel and they called and arranged it for us the following morning. The balloon company picked us up @... More

From start to finish, we were well entertained! Weather was absolutely beautiful. Our guide Blair had a wonderful sense of humor and kept us laughing the whole time. At one point, it was so serene and peaceful that I almost fell asleep. With the exception of the heat to keep the balloon up, it was quiet. My only disappointment was... More

I am facing some serious health issues and needed to get away and relax. My cousin booked us with Northern Lights to watch the sun rise over Sedona after my doctor gave a thumbs up. I am scared of heights, but it went so slow and easy that I didn't even realize we were climbing above the canyon! We glided... More

My husband and I made an impromptu decision to take a ride for our 30th wedding anniversary. I am somewhat afraid of heights so this was a big step for me but I am so glad that I did! Everything went smooth from the early morning pick-up, lift off, flight, landing and celebration champagne toast afterwards. The views were absolutely... More

We were traveling with friends and I have to admit that when they told me they booked this I seriously considered backing out. I have a terrible fear of heights and hated to waste this kind of money if I had to back out at the last minute. But I'm so glad I did it...it was great and worth every... More

This is TOTALLY worth the early wake up call. The views are incredible and for someone who was nervous about being that high in a balloon, it was a non-issue. You don't even feel it take off and the ride is so smooth that you hardly know you are so high off the earth. We were in the largest balloon... More

This was a first for both myself and my wife (who is scared of heights) but Dan put her at ease and after the ascent she was enjoying herself as much as I was. We both had a great time and would recommend this to anyone. From pick up to drop off it was an experience we will not forget.

What a beautiful way to watch the sunrise in Sedona! I was a tad nervous, but Blair was the coolest, warmest, and funniest pilot! His staff was fantastic too! The whole experience was soothing, stunning, and a blast. And Blair--don't forget about Silly Billy! :-D
