Organised as part of a deal for going to a timeshare presentation. Well organise tour. Picked up with a group of other people early from our resort and taken to the launch site. There were 4 of us plus the knowledgeable pilot on board and we were chased by the hard working ground crew. There were quite a few other... More

Blair and his crew were fabulous, one time and spot on! The Red Rocks were breathtaking and the fly over the Cocina Forest was a bonus and they topped it off with mimosas. Definitely recommened it to anyone in the Sedona area.

What a great adventure if you have the time and money. Really for what you get it's relatively cheap in comparison to the memories it will provide. First, they picked us up at our hotel early in the morning and when we got to the place that they launched the balloons, we got to help inflate the balloon and enjoyed... More

Flying high above Sedona as the sun was rising was just amazing. The whole trip, from watching them blow up the balloons, to the wrap-up at the end was fun and interesting. They showed up right on time at our pick-up location. Dan, our pilot, made the experience all that more enjoyable with his vast knowledge of the history and... More

Our pilot, Dan, is awesome! We now know more about Sedona and the surrounding areas than in the two years we have lived there. We were well-informed about what to expect and what we were seeing the whole way through the adventure. All pilots and crew members were 100% professional and possessed of the greatest asset, a sense of humor.... More

We were picked up at our hotel entrance at 5:45 am, picked up 3 other passengers and drove to the launching site. Our pilot/guide, Dan, was a native Sedonan who seemed to know everything about the area, from history to geology, and during the course of our journey we came to learn about getting one's balloon pilot license and the...

The people were pleasant to deal with and the experience was very peaceful, but....if you want very close proximity to the canyon walls, then Northern Lights is not for you. Their launch site is not as ideal as Red Rocks Balloon Adventure which we could see was closer to the buttes. If you just want to be up high and... More

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.
