we were both so excited to do this and cross it off our bucket list. The weather was perfect. lots of sunshine for good photos. The company entertaining to say the least. there were a few who were not fond of heights but loved it in the end. we were able to watch the inflating and the deflating of the balloons. several balloons went up around the same time. another great photo op. having drinks and snacks on the desert floor was such a nice touch. The sunset picture was one of my favorite I took while in Phoenix for the month of February. amazing amazing amazing


Epic experience, a must do I simply can't describe it , our flight crew Matt and Michael were simply the very best. Great sense of humour which was an added bonus to the experience. Very very highly recommend it.


Our pilot Mike was amazing as was the entire crew !!! What a wonderful experience!!!! The flight over the desert was so peaceful and beautiful..a must for bucket list


My wife and I took the afternoon balloon excursion to celebrate an anniversary week. Was an extremely uplifting and amazing experience all around. The views were breathtaking as one could expect, but all the other aspects of putting a balloon in the air were very interesting to watch and take part of, from watching the crew inflate the balloon to jumping in the basket and all that fun stuff! We also had them pick us up at our hotel and bring us to the launch site and we were very glad we did that because our hotel was in the opposite corner of Phoenix, so that was a really nice feature that I would recommend to anyone if you’re not familiar with the city. All the crew and staff were very nice and polite and friendly. Special thanks to our balloon pilot Kasey for safely guiding us through an amazing journey! While our flight had to be cut a few minutes short based on inopportune landing potentials, the company ultimately made it worth our while. My wife and I were also surprised by being presented with an anniversary cake which everyone in our group got to enjoy. This was such an amazing experience, and we are letting all our friends and family know! Thanks again so much Hot Air Expeditions!

Awesome experience. Kacey was a great pilot. Champagne toast and truffles were a great ending! Highly recommend this experience!


What a beautiful and fun experience! The trip was magical and our pilot Kasey was so friendly and knowledgeable. And then the toast after the flight was also special. If there are any doubts about doing this, just go for it!

Had a great flight with Mike and his crew. We got a full 60 minute ride with plenty of elevation. Amazing once in a lifetime experience!


Oh my, our 1st time up and what an experience. From pick up to lift off to landing they were great and very professional and enlightening. You couldn’t ask for a more breathtaking sight experience. Would definitely do this again with Hot Air Balloons!


The good folks at Hot Air Expeditions were very helpful. Our driver was Nick and he made us feel very comfortable. Jonathan was our pilot, A+++. He was competent, entertaining and enjoyable. What an awesome experience!


We were celebrating our 50th Wedding Anniversary and had an absolutely marvelous trip with Captain Matt. We can strongly recommend Hot Air Expeditions as a professional group providing an excellent adventure!
