We had a fabulous time and enjoyed the entire experience, from helping to get the balloon up and the wonderful flight to the landing and packing up.
Mike, Becky and their whole team were fun and professional, giving us plenty of confidence in their abilities with the balloon.
The flight itself was wonderful. Total silence except for the flame, the sun rising from behind the Catalina mountains, deer running beneath us, the light changing on the mountains, thousands of cactus and views for miles.
Thoroughly recommended.

My Granddaughters and I took our first ever balloon ride this morning with the stunningly beautiful balloon belonging to Mike and Becky of Fleur de Tucson, and their delightful crew. Our excitement mounted as we watched the crew prep the balloon for takeoff at sunrise. Didn't know what to expect, but they made us feel most comfortable from the moment we climbed aboard and started gliding over the splendid desert landscape. I don't think you have seen Tucson until you have seen it from the air. Mike is a master pilot, maneuvering over the terrain, spotting all types of wildlife, taking us through passes we didn't know existed. We saw herds of deer, a fox, coyotes, and Mike even took us close enough to those jack rabbits to check for horns! LOL He is very knowledgeable about the mountain peaks and other points of interest. We felt we were in great hands the whole time, with regular updates from the chase team as to wind conditions. The landing was unbelievably smooth. My teenage granddaughters thought it was breathtaking, and have been talking about it all day. We had a delightful toast to the successful ride, a scrumptious brunch, and Becky provided us with pictures that we help us remember this memorable ride. I would highly recommend Fleur de Tucson and really enjoy the desert beauty below. Thanks for an unforgettable experience!

Mike and Becky and the entire crew provided an unforgettable experience! It was a dream come true to share this amazing adventure with my out-of-town son and grandson on my son's 40th birthday! I cannot imagine a more professional, hospitable, or more thoughtful group of individuals that the Fleur de Tucson balloon team! First class people and outstanding experience start to finish. They even included a personalized photo thumb-drive and yummy brunch after the flight! Patty and Andy

Personalized service by Mike and Becky. Our weather was not perfect, but our experience was. The crew took what might have been a dismal day in the air and gave us a great ride for our first adventure in a hot air balloon. Loved only 5 people in our basket, including the pilot.
Great experience

We had an amazing adventure today. The experience far exceeded our expectations! Our pilot, Mike Fleury, made it such an enjoyable flight. His knowledge and experience added to the fun and feeling of security. Becky Fleury and all the ground crew were very professional and friendly. The set up of the balloon was very interesting and done with speed and efficiency and at the end of the ride the packing up of the balloon was just as interesting and professionally handled. Then we were treated to some history of ballooning followed by the Balloonist prayer and toasting our safe landing back on the ground with champagne mimosa's and a light brunch and conversation with all. Thank you Mike and Becky and crew for a very memorable day! We will definitely recommend Fleur de Tucson Hot Air Balloon rides to all our family and friends...from Alaska and all across the lower 48!
