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 about the beauty of the Sonoran Desert over a Champagne breakfast.
