“A Soaring Experience”

2 Fly Us Hot Air Balloon Rides - Private Flights
Reviewed July 4, 2013

Looking to avoid being a part of the crowd, we highly recommend 2 Fly Us Hot Air Balloon Rides. Kevin Flannigan was a master, not only of piloting the balloon, but of making the flight memorable through his informational narratives and great stories. From start to finish, with help from his assistant Gene, the experience exceeded our expectations. So if you are looking to enjoy your first balloon ride over Phoenix, 2 Fly US is the way to go. Thanks Kevin and Gene!

Kevin Flannigan, along with Gene as ground crew, provided a memorable adventure. Kevin's experience and his personality made our flight enjoyable from the moment we met to the moment we parted. It was much more than we expected. It started with watching Kevin and Gene inflate the balloon. After take-off we climbed to have a bird's eye view of the surrounding countryside which made for some great picture taking (take a video camera along). We then moved down among the hills with the balloon's shadow following us while watching runners on the trails and a coyote moving through the vegetation. It ended with Kevin leading us in a toast after landing. We (four of us) voted it the best of all our activities while in AZ. We highly recommend it even to those who might be a bit apprehensive. It will not disappoint.

Our first trip to Phoenix and the one thing on our son's " to do" list was a sunrise hot air balloon ride. It would be a first for us and I can't imagine having a better experience anywhere. Kevin and Gene were professional, super nice, and lots of fun. Our only disappointment was that the ride had to end!

My family enjoyed this experience immensely. It was the first time for all. This was at the top of our to-do list for Phoenix. Kevin and Gene(sp?) were a great team in making this a perfect experience. The flight was great, with altitudes ranging from probably 16 feet to 6000 feet. Lots of information and education provided by Kevin to add to the visual experience. Highly recommend this company.

We went on this ride with another couple. It was a nice, relaxing way to start the day. Neither I, nor my husband had been in a hot air balloon before, and weren't sure what to expect. The pilot, Kevin, was great about explaining what we were doing, following the air currents, going up and down, etc. He also had some interesting experiences to share from his 29 years of flying hot air balloons. The view was also amazing. We both had a great time and would highly recommend the experience for anyone!
