Overview
Most Sonoran Desert off-roading tours may take you off-the-beaten path, but they still don’t offer 360-degree views of the stunning desert landscape. During this hot air balloon ride from Phoenix, take to the air for the best vantage point of the area. And, as a bonus, see the sunrise, too. After your flight, reminisce about the beauty of the Sonoran Desert over a Champagne breakfast.

Such a fun time! We went on the sunrise tour, it was breathtaking. Beautiful scenery, perfect pace. It was amazing to see the set up and take down of all the equipment. Kyle was a great pilot. He was filled with fun facts and funny jokes. Highly recommend.

Excellent way to start the day. Seeing the sunrise over the desert as you’re floating over the hills is fantastic. Patrick was a great pilot that kept us entertained the entire flight. Well worth it.
