Excellent experience. Canadian friend of mine wanted to cross it off bucket list. I decided to go along although I have a fear of heights. Everyone should do this at least once in their lifetime. Kevin is really a professional pilot and I never feared for my safety once we were in the air. Very hard to explain but very... More

Definitely recommend Tucson Balloon Rides! They went above and beyond to treat us to the balloon ride we were all looking forward to taking. Due to the wind, they had to inflate the balloon not once, but twice! They kept our safety in mind and gave us an experience of a lifetime. They were professional and fun! I have been... More

I haven't taken the balloon ride - but I see these guys fly by my backyard almost every day this time of year. It looks like a blast! A couple years ago my family (two little boys) were able to go over to a balloon fest in Marana and were able to "help" the crew launch the balloons. The balloonists... More

It met our high expectations. The crew was friendly and professional. We enjoyed the flight path. The banana bread was delicious.

Oh my, this is now something I can cross off my bucket list. Kevin and crew were the best. We couldn't have asked for a better day over beautiful Tucson valley. Thanks for a great ride and a wonderful brunch after the ride. We will be bringing all of our visiting friends for a ride with you.

My husband and I have always wanted to take a balloon ride, so we decided to do it to celebrate our 50th wedding anniversary. It was GREAT!! We loved every minute of it. Kevin was a terrific pilot, and the rest of the crew were very courteous and efficient. Kevin gave us a very interesting history of hot air ballooning.... More

This was the first time riding in a balloon for my husband and our 2 friends who were celebrating their 50th anniversary. Our pilot, Kevin was wonderful as was the chase crew. Not only is the ride fantastic, but they also sent us photos taken by the chase crew and we enjoyed a delicious brunch after our flight.

We wanted to do something fun and different on vacation and heard wonderful reviews and decided to try it. It was a fantastic experience! I highly recommend it. Kevin and his crew are so knowledgeable about the area and describing what we were seeing. It was a beautiful morning and just so cool! I would fly again with this crew... More

We decided to do this last minute. Booked on a Friday morning, and was in a Balloon 4k feet above the ground at 0600 Saturday morning!! (after driving 6 hours from SoCal) Take the time to experience this! Kevin and his crew are professional, equipment is 100% and they make this something to remember. Small details are not overlooked.
