We enjoyed our hot air balloon ride. The pilot was very friendly, we had a long flight and a smoothe landing. We were disappointed in the lack of communication though. We weren't sure of the time we needed to meet for our sunrise cruise. The only thing we saw, when we booked

Very friendly and professional crew! I was a little nervous before the trip as this was my first time ballooning, but I felt so safe flying with these guys. It was a much calmer flight than I imagined it would be, the views were incredible and our pilot and fellow passengers

I booked a Sunrise balloon ride for my husband's Christmas present. We were visiting AZ from out of town and our ride was booked for the Friday after Christmas. We had booked a babysitter and woken up early to arrive at the Starbucks at 6:40am and eagerly waited for our balloon

Responded 30 Jan 2020
I am sorry for this experience. Weather does play a large role in this experience. This flight canceled over an hour before meeting time and all customers were advised via phone call or text. Unfortunately TripAdvisor does not always share phone numbers therefore we have to email cancelations. Many times TripAdvisor customers don’t receive cancelations until well after meeting time due to not regularly checking email. I am very sorry for that. We would have happily called had we a phone number to call. Future recommendation is when booking through a third party click the allow to share phone number box.

Great experience. Very knowledgeable and safe pilot. I recommend them. My only disappointment was that they don’t pick up from your hotel the way that is advertised on their TripAdvisor page. That may just be something that needs correction though.

Beautiful Cityscape Ride
We chose the ride that lifts off from Gilbert because getting to Phoenix for the Sonoran Desert was not convenient.
