Went with my 24yo son for my 65th birthday and we had a blast!. We were a bit uneasy about doing this, but the crew made us feel completely safe and comfortable. The sights were awesome and we had fun at the champagne celebration afterwards. Would highly recommend this fun and amazing adventure.

Great experience! We fit snugly together in the basket (fits 6 people) which kept us warm as a bonus

My husband surprised me with a hot air balloon ride for my 50th birthday, and what a wonderful surprise it was!! Dan and his crew are a lovely, fun group of people who make you feel safe and comfortable for the entire experience. I would like to note that on the morning of our flight, the wind conditions were not optimal so Dan decided we try again the next day. While disappointed, we were grateful he put our safety first. A lesser professional may have forged ahead for a less than optimal ride. So glad we waited until the next day! The sunrise was spectacular and the views were jaw dropping. The ride was smooth and the landing was perfect! Even saw some coyotes! Afterwards, we were treated with a fun little brunch with fruit, cheeses and mimosas! Even birthday cake ☺️. We were also surprised with a follow up emails short while later with a ton of photos of our event, not realizing the crew followed us and took the pics while we floated along, unaware. Nice touch. Highly recommend!!

Fantastic experience all the way through. Booking was easy , communication was great , our ride was spectacular. We went first thing on a Sunday , fun , safe, scenic, Dan was very informative , beautiful route over the mountains just west of Tucson . Also had a nice after landing celebration of mimosas and some light snacks . Great way to celebrate a 60th birthday ( even got a small cake with a candle !)

Excellent honeymoon activity. Dan and Julia are nice folks, the views of Twin Peaks are picturesque; there's even an interesting bit of history you learn. I would certainly recommend them.

Just got back from Tucson after hanging with Dan in the sky. It was so much fun and we had the most amazing views and even drifted over a small aerodrome which was cool. We saw animals scurrying away from the blast of the burners and welcomed the sun as it popped up from behind the mountains. The crew of 4 worked together to look after us and ensure we had the time of our lives. I give it 5 out of 5!

We were gifted this ride as a wedding gift and I 10000% recommend to anyone who is looking to go on an amazing, safe, wonderful adventure. The entire crew was amazing start to finish, they knew I was so nervous but spoke to me with very calm words and it was as smooth as it could have gone. So thankful and blessed to have been able to experience this!!! No one better for a balloon ride in Tucson!!!

We decided to celebrate our birthdays in style and Dan, Lorrie and their crew made it memorable. We were in good hands from start to finish, from clear communication about the upcoming ride and safety information, to the celebratory finale. It all made it a great experience!

We celebrated our 50th wedding anniversary with a hot air balloon ride March 12, 2022. It was an experience of a lifetime. Our pilot Dan and the ground crew were friendly, helpful, caring, and so very efficient. We felt safe from the very start.
Yes, you have to be up early and dress warm for the cold Tuscon early morning weather but it is so worth it.
If a hot air balloon ride is on your bucket list, be sure to book with Foolish Pleasure you will not be disappointed.
Thank you Dan, Lorie, Julia and the ground crew for a wonderful experience!!
