This was one of the highlights of our trip to Tucson. After an aborted (weather-related) balloon trip in Carefree, AZ last year, we booked this trip in hopes that it would go..and it did! Fleur de Tucson definitely keeps the weather/safety factor foremost in their planning, so make sure you check in the day prior, just to ensure weather conditions... More

Mike, Becky, and the crew made this an experience I will cherish forever! There are barely words to describe the feeling of how much I enjoyed this balloon ride. This was the first time for me, so I was very excited, and just a bit nervous. Becky explained everything while the crew inflated the balloon. From the minute we took... More

From booking to landing, Mike, Becky and their crew made our first hot air ballon ride an over-the-top experience. We met just before sunrise and were driven to the launch site. We were able to help with the balloon launch preparation (but only if you WANTED to), received basic instructions on how to enter the balloon, and up, up and... More

Started just west of I-10, floated over the mountains, over Picture Rocks Road, over the Avra Valley Airport and landed shortly after. I've been on a Balloon ride starting in the East side of Tucson, but this route was WAY better. It's hard to put into words how beautiful the view was going over those mountains at sunrise - absolutely... More

Becky and Mike are great, and this is one of the best experiences of my life, by far! I always do a copious amount of research before traveling and settling on vacation plans, and these are the people to do your balloon ride with. I contacted Becky in September to plan for a ride at the very very end of... More

Our family definitely recommends this balloon company. Mike, Becky and their crew were efficient, friendly and professional. We flew from the northwest outskirts of Tucson, over Saguaro National Park, saw some deer, flew over hills and farmland before landing. While flying, we would go up and down in order to get a good view of wildlife and terrain. All balloon... More

We appreciate your kind words and are so glad you enjoyed your ride/experience, as we enjoyed meeting you all. Just to clarify....All the balloon companies do not fly the same route; there are a couple other companies that fly from the east side of the Tucson Mountains, but our flight path is unique and we are the only ones that...

I highly recomend this company for a great experience. Becky explained every detail while Mike and the crew prepared for flight. As much as possible all riders participated in some small way enhancing the fun. The early morning flight over the mountians was beautiful. In addition, it was my father's 78th birthday and Becky went out of her way to... More

One of life’s highlights and the best way to see how wonderful the country surrounding Tucson looks. The ride starts at dawn and the balloon drifts over the desert, expertly guided by Mike the pilot, who points out landmarks and wildlife below. Mike inspires total confidence and at least on my ride, the balloon was incredibly steady, quiet and controlled.... More

I hate to complain but....Mike's website promised "spectacular panoramas from higher elevations- as high as 2500 feet". All we got was the lower elevations-500 feet at most. When I asked Mike about going higher, he said you can't see the wildlife from higher up. I think Mike was just trying to save propane. If you have no intention of going... More

Stephen, thank you for reviewing your flight. We very often fly at higher altitudes, which is why it is advertised on our website. The day you flew the upper winds were blowing to the east, which would have made the balloon fly into the city if Mike had flown at 2500 feet, instead of giving you that beautiful flight over...
