We were taken to 3 different places, finally ending up in a circle K lot, with nothing to view from above or around. The crew seemed they just wanted to get this over! We were taken on I17/Jomax area for about 15 min or so actual flight time with last 6 or 7 minutes trying to land. What a waste of time, to go over a hot air balloon ride, and watch garbage and weeds all over on the ground. Never recommend this torture to anyone!

We had a ride this morning and it was so pretty and peaceful. Very cool watching the set up and we even got to step inside the balloon while it was inflating! Many fun stories and history from the pilot and we were lucky enough to ride with Earl, who is the most energetic ball of delight I've ever seen at 5am! Highly recommend this company for a fun, peaceful trip!

About Arizona Balloon Safaris

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.
