My girlfriend and I had an absolutely amazing time with Arizona Balloon Safaris. From the shuttle ride and the take-off point to the balloon setup and being able to walk inside the balloon, to the flight and inflight conversation, to the landing and after the flight champagne breakfast, everything was amazing!! I was worried that I may have overpaid for some obscure balloon ride, but I would have paid much more! The staff was absolutely amazing and funny, and it made for an incredibly memorable experience.
I did their Breakfast Sunrise Tour. Got about an hour and 15 mins of actual flight, but the whole process of setup and take down was part of the experience. I’d definitely recommend one of their flights. It was absolutely worth every penny.
An absolutely amazing first time experience for my family and I. The crew were incredible!! Always felt safe with our pilot Scott. The end part of our excursion topped the cake, with a toast of champagne on a safe return and breakfast in the desert. Highly recommend this company and their crew.

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.
