Fodor’s calls Hot Air Expeditions “the best ballooning in Phoenix. Flights are long, the staff is charming, and the gourmet snacks, catered by the acclaimed Vincent restaurant, are out of this world.”

Seven TripAdvisors 4.5 stars: > * They did an excellent job - prompt start, good narrative while we were over the mountains, well organized when we landed, and very good champagne breakfast – DaveAZ7 > * The skies were clear, photos were amazing and the view was second to none – kymbir

Hot Air Expeditions

Though a pilot mans each of Hot Air Expeditions balloon flights, the excursions are really guided by Mother Nature. The colorful balloons simply follow the wind, hovering above the cacti and coyote that call the Sonoran desert home before gently climbing breezes to give passengers a full view of the surrounding mountains and lakes. Groups can take morning flights year-round or afternoon flights from November through March, both of which offer spectacular photo opportunities, as well as time-sensitive challenges to any still-life painters on board.

The mutable nature of the flights mean they last anywhere from 45–90 minutes, after which, passengers will enjoy chilled champagne and gourmet catered cuisine from the award-winning Vincent’s on Camelback Restaurant, complete with tables linens and china in the heart of the desert. Each guest is awarded an official flight certificate as a memento of their aerial journey before boarding a courtesy van that returns them to the launch point. Though the actual flights last up to 90 minutes, groups should allow up to four hours for the entire trip.

Customer Reviews

It was a great experience. It was my first balloon ride so I was not sure what to expect. Our captain was very professional and informative. The ride was very gentle and there really was no sense of going up or movement. Having a light breakfast at the end of the flight was a nice finish. One surprise was that the basket was a tight fit, the basket is divided into 4 sections with 2 people per section and I am not small so it was a tight but acceptable fit.
