We were lucky enough to be the only people booked the morning of our flight so we had a private tour. We had an amazing experience with Apex balloons. I believe our flight lasted an hour and a half and we were up in the air much longer than most balloons. Jon and Gary were very passionate about ballooning and... More

I did a Google search for hot air ballooning in Phoenix 2 days before I was leaving and not only was Apex able to readily accommodate me but they were great and easy to deal with! The pilot Jon and his flight crew were professional, very experienced and even entertaining. Strongly recommend hot air ballooning in the AM as Jon... More

We surprised my parents with a sunset hotair balloon ride for their 40th wedding anniversary and it was a memorable and exciting experience. I am so glad we chose Apex, as Jon is the owner and takes great pride and care with his balloon and his passengers. My mom was apprehensive because she is scared of heights, but after about... More

From the moment we gathered at a meeting place to the moment we returned our pilot, Taylor, and his crew confidently transported us into the world of hot air ballooning. The ballon ride was majestic. I felt safe and able to relax and enjoy floating over some beautiful landscapes. We went up 8300 feet! Just wonderful. .

It started out as a birthday gift for our daughter and a guest. Then we learned her fiance has a deep...respect...for heights. When he saw how many volunteers there were for the guest position, he gathered his courage and agreed to go. By the morning of the flight, my husband and I had realized how much we wanted to go...

We arrived at the meeting spot a little early to grab a donut. We were very excited about our adventure in the air! John our expert balloon driver was friendly, attentive, informative with the area, and didn't mind all the questions. We topped at 7,000 ft, it was so beautiful and peaceful. I am glad I've had my hot air... More

We had a great trip yesterday with Apex balloons. It started off a little weird as where we first went didn't work wind wise so we turned around and went elsewhere-where 6 other balloons took off just ahead of us, but from that point on it was amazing. John, the owner and pilot, fell in love with ballooning at the... More

My wife and I recently booked a flight with Jon in Scottsdale, AZ. A hot air balloon ride has long been on our bucket list. Jon gave us a great experience! We loved every second of the trip! Beautiful views from 7000 ft, and Jon provided us with a celebratory bottle of champange to finish our experience. Definitely a must... More
