Reviewed November 24, 2013

We had one morning opportunity - the other company in Sedona was fully booked - and we were lucky enough too book with Red Rock. Very professionally run! Mark was our "driver?" and he was awesome. I was super nervous because I don't do heights but am so so glad I did this! Pick up was right on time - had to pick up others along the way. The set up team were also very friendly and efficient. Mark was a great guide for the ride - and expert at steering to make sure we didn't hit anything! We even got to see a couple of deer on top of the mountain. Landing was also perfect - follow by the balooners prayer, mimosas and muffins... All in all a great experience that I highly recommend!

Great experience for wife and I both, 60+. First scheduled flight was called off because of too much wind (a good decision for safety) without any expense for us...just investment in time to go out to the site and then find it called off. Fortunately, we were able to schedule another flight, which went off well. Too balloons from the company were launched, ours had 12 guests and pilot, which was sufficient room for everyone to have a great view, especially since the pilot made sure to periodically rotate the balloon so everyone had the same view opportunities. We noticed balloons from other companies quite a way off in the distance and farther from the interesting rock formations. It was very interesting to see how the pilot maneuvered the balloon in altitude to take advantage of differing wind directions at different altitudes, he was able to put the balloon just where he wanted to provide the views and even land right on an untraveled road very near to the location were we then had our champagne, juice, fruit and muffins. Can't think of anything even remotely negative about the experience.

Went on the Red Rock Balloon trip this past Wednesday morning in Sedona. Although it was quite cool, it warmed up as we ascended. Our pilot, Mark, was fantastic and answered all our questions and kept us updated during the entire trip and informed us of the interesting areas. It was great to see Sedona from the air - we descended and ascended a number of times. Our landing was perfect and a few members even assisted with moving the balloon to its eventual site where it was dismantled. The entire crew was professional and the balloon was up after about 30min and dismantled in about the same time. The end of the trip was celebrated with champagne, fruit and muffins.
Thumbs up to the company and the 2 pilots, the 2 Marks.

Overcoming fears is always a great cause for celebration. The balloon pilots were amazingly skilled.Their sense of humour and fun made even those with fear ,feel totally at ease as we glided across the sedona landscape - this is an elegant and beautiful way to watch the sun come up over the red rocks- the champagne and tasty muffin breakfast at the end sealed a precious moment for me - where I forgot my fears .

A beautiful, fun-filled experience, offered by an organized and professional crew. Early morning flights, only, but so worth it! Pick-up at your lodging and a light picnic breakfast with mojitos or sodas after your trip. A must do when visiting Sedona.
