The skill and professionalism of everyone was exceptional. Before going I did not realize how many people it takes to make this such a wonderful experience. Our flight was both fun and peaceful. I will certainly fly with this company again. This is something that everyone should experience.

Whenever my husband and I visit Tucson from Oregon, this is our number 1 first activity to do. Fleur de Tucson is the ultimate ballooning company. Mike and Becky have been flying for many years. Safety is their middle name, with excitement and adventure added in. Mike is so professional and able to take you to see sites in his balloon that other companies are not able to do.
The balloon ride is not complete until you are treated to a bit of info about ballooning and a champagne brunch. Thanks Fleur de Tucson! J & P Spires

If having a meaningful event is what you are after, this is it. The owner and staff are first class down to every detail. My wife and I went. It was special and we were the only passengers. Costs a bit more, but is well worth it. From the team work and opportunity to get involved in the flight preparation, to the awesome ride and education, to the champagne and food after, we left saying, wow. Unbelievable. Thank you Fleur de Tucson. If you can, go!

We took our first hot air balloon ride this morning with Mike and Becky, and crew and it was a real treat. Mike is the most professional and in control pilot who makes a hard job look so easy. He is very careful to make sure the wind is just right and will pick another launching area to be safe, if the wind isn't right.
We glided over the Tucson Mountains and desert below and it was so quiet.. except when the burner was going. We saw some wildlife below and the sights from the air were gorgeous. We had a thrilling and magnificent landing which I will always remember! Mike and Becky seem like friends we have known for years and I will urge anyone to ride with them over any other company in Tucson. They are the oldest company and Mike knows what he is doing at all times. The basket is small and holds only 4 passengers plus Mike,
which we prefer over the bigger baskets. We were able to help unroll the balloon and get it up plus help taking it down for the next ride. We were airborn for about an hour so it was a long ride.
After the awesome flight we enjoyed mimosas and Becky's homemade muffins along with other breakfast treats. It was a perfect way to end a perfect morning.
This was so cool!!

Had a great time on our Balloon ride today! Mike and Becky, the owners, did a great job, made us feel like friends just going along for the ride. Spectacular views along the way and the champagne brunch was nice. Becky even served homemade muffins, so sweet!
