Super awesome experience watching the sunrise from 4000 feet up in a giant balloon. Our guide and pilot Danny was super awesome and beyond knowledgeable of the geography and history of the city and state. Really fun ride and totally worth every penny and lack of sleep. We even got certificates and a lovely mimosa picnic after! Great company, great... More

We found that we were going to be in Sedona on the 4th of July and decided this would be something truly memorable to do on that day. It was a rather last minute idea (a week ahead of time) and we tried the other company first but they were completely booked up (said it was the most popular weekend... More

Taking a hot air balloon ride was on my "bucket list" and the experience was amazing. Sunrise over Sedona has to be one of the most beautiful sites in the US. Our pilot "Ron" picked us up promptly at our resort at 4:30 AM, and we were off on an adventure of a lifetime. The morning was beautiful, calm and... More

I've surprised my teenage kids with a balloon flight in Sedona. Everyone was grumpy with a 4am wake-up and one of my girls got a bit nervous when she saw we were going on a balloon. Immediately our captain (Daniel) reassured everyone of how smooth the flights were. And indeed he was right. After a 5-10 mins of setup, when... More

All the pilots, and ground crew too, are extremely pleasant and professional. They are all committed to making a memorable experience for their passengers, complete with a champagne breakfast snack served afterwards. The ballon ride was wonderful - amazing views and skilled pilots.

It's an ASTONISHING experience! Daniel was our pilot, excellent guide, excellent pilot, excellent service! We felt really safe during our ride, he knows what he is doing and knows so many things about Sedona and Arizona. The lunch was delicious! A perfect experience!

It was an early morning wake up call, 3:30 as we were in Munds Park, a 45 minute drive, had to meet for pickup at 4:50 at a local parking lot. Got to the launch site, and realized there were 5 balloons taking off today. Got to help with the takeoff, and the landing, Captain Doug was very knowledgeable, although... More

This is a Bucket List experience! Capt. Ron & Crew Chief Mike were super friendly, VERY informative, and professional! Capt. Ron has been piloting a balloon for over 30 years all over he world, so you can't beat that personal experience. Been to Sedona many times, but seeing it by Hot Air Balloon is literally a breathtaking experience. Even with... More

An out-of-the world experience! The balloon ride was simply fantastic! To go up thousands of feet & just float, soaking up the morning & enjoy the awesome views all round - stuff that dreams are made off! Our 'pilot' ex-Navy officer Bill was simply great - aborted a landing that would have gotten us on a rough patch (maybe as... More
