It was a wonderful time! We had a great experience. It felt so good to be traveling through the air at such a dream like speed. Watching the set up and inflation was also a great visual trip. Highly recommended.

A much overdue gift from my wonderful hubby! Spur of the moment decided to go for it and buy and book our balloon ride! Kevin and crew were great and explained everything, the process of setting up, our flight plan, landing. Answered all our questions. Allowed us to just take it all in and enjoy the peacefulness of floating along... More

This was the most lovely trip to go on. Kevin our pilot was fab along with all the ground crew. An hour up in the air felt like ten minutes, I was sad to know we were landing. The brunch in the park afterwards was a really lovely touch and featured some home made goodies too which were yummy. I... More

I had always wanted to go in a hot air balloon and was thrilled to have such a fun experience once I finally did. The people in charge were friendly and explained everything well so we felt safe. I'd highly recommend it!

If you have adventure in your blood and think you've taken a lot of risks in life up to this point, try this out. The anticipation will keep you awake the night before, you will worry it will be too much but it all disappears as soon as you become airborne. What an absolute thrill. Words can't describe the feeling;... More

On our planned visit to Tucson I surprised my wife and 21 year old daughter with a sunrise hot air balloon ride. We had to get up early but it was worth it. Left the ground around 645 and landed around 815. Glided westward over some amazing desert scenery. Saw coyotes, rabbits and great terrain. Kevin was our pilot and... More

I have never been on a ballon ride before and was uncertain about how I would handle the experience. Kevin, our pilot, was an amazing source of information and perspective. He patiently answered all of our questions with great insight. He guided us through every step of the process, explained what he needed us to do and then helped us... More

Kicked-off my husband's birthday celebration with a sunrise balloon ride with Tucson Balloon Rides. The online scheduling was easy and efficient. Our pilot, Kevin, was professional and friendly. He was very knowledgeable about wildlife, Tucson history and his conversation made the balloon ride informative. The scenery was spectacular - a memorable way to experience Tucson, for sure!

This was our first Balloon ride. Could not have been more perfect. The pilot and the extra handlers were personable and easy going. Able to see Coyotes, deer, rabbits, and Javelina. Views were amazing. Not sure this trip could be topped.

This was a very impromptu activity for our family and we are so glad Kevin was able to get us in. This was our first balloon ride and it was more than we expected. Great staff, great views, beautiful weather and a fun and delicious brunch prepared by Kevin's wife. It was so peaceful up in the air and such... More
