Overview
Most Sonoran Desert off-roading tours may take you off the beaten path, but they still don’t offer 360-degree views of the stunning desert landscape. During this hot-air balloon ride from Phoenix, take to the air for the best vantage point of the area, and as a bonus, see the sunrise, too. After your flight, reminisce on the beauty of the Sonoran Desert over a Champagne breakfast.
What to Expect
Meet for this Sonoran Desert sunrise hot-air balloon ride in central Phoenix. You’ll be driven over to the launch site by your guide.

Listen to a short safety briefing about your trip, and then climb aboard the basket with your other group members. Your pilot flies up into the air as you enjoy 360-degree views over the Sonoran Desert. Learn about the wildlife and history of the desert from your guide.

Once you land back on the ground, sit down at picnic tables, and fill up on breakfast hors d'oeuvres, accompanied by Champagne.

Your Sonoran Desert sunrise hot-air balloon ride ends with a ride back to the original meeting spot.

Best Birthday Party Ever

Our twin daughters and some friends enjoyed an amazing birthday party by taking a sunrise hot air balloon ride above Phoenix. The pilot, Patrick, made the entire experience extra special.

As JPB001 said, they meet at the office. Sign some paperwork, and then you are shuttled to the launch site. It is cool because then you get to watch every balloon inflate. Have fun Dana!
