Amazing experience - even though I am scared of heights! Entire crew put guests' safety and comfort above all else. When our pilot wasn't happy with the twist of a rope, he unloaded us all and readjusted to ensure all was in tip top shape. We soared to close to 1,000 feet! The champagne breakfast after our flight was really fun and tasty! Would without a doubt fly with Balloon Safari again! An unforgettable experience.

This was an outstanding outing. The captain and crew were knowledgeable and courteous. I would recommend this trip to anyone seeking a first rate hot air balloon experience.

Terrible landing on the cotton field, hit ground and big basket turned over to the other side, my neck almost got hurt, passengers were shocking! They put 12 people in one big basket, I didn't see the view of 360 degrees they mention on their website.

Very professional crew and pilot AND lots of fun! The entire experience, from watching the balloon inflate to the champagne breakfast (actually a pretty decent breakfast!) was a treat.

From Our Editors

When Randy Long and his family recently went on spring break, they didn't laze around on a beach staring at the sea. Instead, they trekked around the world to China. The choice of destination isn't surprising given Randy's extraordinarily adventurous spirit—the former travel agent has trotted the globe a few times, dog sledding in Alaska and scuba diving in Bermuda along the way.

Despite his eagerness to explore, Randy probably surprised even himself when he was caught by an unexpected wave of inspiration during a 1986 Rotary Club meeting in Illinois. When hot air balloonist Harold Lovelace spoke to the club, Randy was so transfixed that he immediately offered to buy one of Harold's balloons. By the end of the year, Randy had his pilot's license, was flying in the world's largest hot air balloon event, and became a pro at photo-bombing the portraits of landscape artists. Within five years, he sold his travel agency and set up shop in Arizona as a full-time balloon pilot.

Since founding Arizona Balloon Safaris, Randy has maintained a perfect flight record, successfully piloting more than 2,000 flights for more than 20,000 passengers (including Shakira and J.W. Marriott). His colorful balloons ride the Sonoran Desert's breezes, gently carrying passengers as far as seven miles while maintaining a feeling of near motionlessness. From any corner of the balloons' sturdy wicker baskets, people can scan all 360 degrees of the desert panorama without a single visual interruption. Whether skimming the tops of cacti or reaching the flight's 5,000-foot apex, groups will likely spot—and sometimes hear—deer, coyote, and jackrabbits during the 45-minute ride. Passengers can bring a camera to take pictures of these sights along the way. Upon landing, the chase crew welcomes groups back to Earth with celebratory glasses of champagne.
