    Exciting adventure surrounded with my hubby and made good friends there too!! This is something everyone needs to try in their life!!

    Was not much wind which made it a challenge but the pilot found some at a lower elevation so it turned out to be an excellent experience. Very smooth landing too

    Pilot and crew were very experienced and even more friendly and entertaining. We had a blast, and threatened them with coming back.

    Absolutely beautiful, i was a bit nervous with hights but the pilot shane got me laughing and my fears went away. Shane and his crew are very informative and friendly. The sunrise and views were breathtaking. Landing was alot smoother than i expected. What a wonderful experience

    Shane and the crew were great! I appreciated Shane's expertise in piloting the craft as all other pilots landed their balloons due to avoiding wind gusts. Shane knew how to pilot with confidence, control, experience, and knowledge. We got the full ride, where others were probably disappointed in that. We did start a little after sunrise. There wasn't a ton a great scenery or wildlife to see, but being in the air was still thrilling. I am greatful to have gotten to enjoy this with my friend who had her first hot air ballooning experience. A bucket list kind of deal for her on our last day in AZ.

    Great bucket list experience! Professional, fun, safe. Pilot Shane, drivers, & team top notch. Thanks.

    Way too crowded on the hot air balloon. Should be max 16 people (even that’s a lot) we could barely turn our bodies to look in different directions. We had 21 people on one hot air balloon. Also way too long of a trip. If we aren’t seeing something different 45 minutes is way too long, 20 would be fine if it’s not gonna go further and show us a different area. Standing there and looking at the same view… Also would like to be offered the inclusions I paid for. We did not get offered fresh fruit or champagne. We got denied by one person and an excuse from another as to why we didn’t get what we paid for. He was very rude when I asked for it and had a disrespectful attitude. Not sure why but there’s no excuse.

    The flight and entire experience was amazing! The pilot and crew were wonderful. Can't wait to do it again!
