Overview
Traveling the Sonoran Desert by ground just doesn’t give you the same views an aerial vantage point can. Take to the skies during this Phoenix hot-air balloon ride at one of the most stunning times of day: sunset. Along with a flight led by an FAA-licensed pilot, you can enjoy Champagne and hors d'oeuvres after your time in the air.

Group of 10 of us ages 5 to 65 enjoyed a magical , sunset Balloon ride into the Sonora Desert two days ago . Having children in our group was concerning ,but pilot Don was excellent in allaying all fears as he raised , lowered and landed our balloon very calmly and gracefully .
