This was a wonderful adventure! A girlfriend and I were visiting Arizona and neither of us had ever taken a hot air balloon ride. We thought it would be an exciting thing to do and it was! So serene and peaceful in the air. Kevin was a great pilot. He added to the trip in that he was prompt, efficient, amusing and informative. We met up at 6:00 am (ugh! But necessary for a sunrise flight). We found our spot for takeoff and waited while the balloon was set up. This didn’t take long and then we boarded the basket. There were 4 of us plus Kevin on the ride. This was really nice as opposed to being in a big group, much more private. Kevin gave us a lot of history of the area, which was interesting. At first you soar way up in the air quite high but then once you are in the mountains he lowers the balloon almost to the ground so that you can see the vegetation and maybe an animal or two. Our ride lasted about an hour which was a perfect amount of time. The entire trip, start to finish, is about 3 hours. The cost was $175 person plus tip. I highly recommend this as a must do on your visit!
