“Our Birthday Gal loved it. Mark is a great pilot.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 6, 2011

The morning trip is the best time. We have flown with Hot Air Expeditions several times and they are the best. The crowning event is the Champagne breakfast on the desert after the flight.

“Truly AMAZING”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 6, 2011 via mobile

A MUST for everyone in their lifetime. Hot Air Expeditions could not have been more professional with every detail. The gormet breakfast in the shadow of the seguaro cactus was something my family will never forget. Thanks for everything Captian Walter!

“The perfect morning”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 6, 2011

Thank you for the amazing experience. I was able to share such an unbelievable time with my parents and girlfriend, not something I will ever forget. Frank and Mike did an excellent job of making the whole experience entertaining and fun. From the conversation in the car rides to the beautiful sights and peaceful flight, to the very well done breakfast at the end, it was a perfect morning.

“Bucket list”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2011

Crazy awesome. If a hot air balloon ride is on your bucket list, Hot Air Expeditions is for you. Our basket held four people and our captain, Tommy Brown. He was great. We were the first ones in the air, which provides perspective as to how high you are going as you watch the other balloons getting smaller and smaller. We were in the air for about an hour. They set up a very nice champagne (or cider) toast and snack after we landed.
