Full description

Glide over the Arizona desert on a hot air balloon ride and admire the desert landscape and mountains from above. Toast to your experience with a glass of champagne once you land.

The experience begins even before you rise into the sky. Help the crew inflate the balloon for a real "hands-on" adventure, or just relax and take a few pictures as the gentle giant comes alive. Once you gain altitude, enjoy vistas you have to see to believe as you float over the Arizona landscape. Phoenix lies beneath you while desert stretches to the distant mountains. The pilots are FAA-licensed and experienced in navigating with your safety and enjoyment in mind. Your pilot will also answer questions and identify points of interest during your flight. A chase crew will follow on the ground and meet you at the landing site. From there a van takes you back to the launch site. Upon your return, enjoy a celebratory toast of Champagne to cap your unique airborne adventure. You'll also be presented with a flight certificate.

We had a WONDERFUL experience on the Sunrise Hot Air Balloon Ride with Rainbow Riders. They were very professional and courteous. Easy to communicate with and prompt with responses. Our pilot was Jesse R and he was AMAZING. So informative and funny-the right amount of taking and information vs letting us be silent and in awe of the beauty! HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

We took the whole family on a first time ride. Naturally we all were anxious but the crew explained everything and how it all will transpire which put us at ease. The ride was great. Seeing the sunrise peak behind the mountains as you rise up into the air was breathtaking. The serenity of it all was awe inspiring. We ended up at an elevation of 5500 ft!

I wanted to do something different for my 50th birthday while celebrating in Phoenix. The experience was AMAZING!!! We glided up 2400 ft in the air and enjoy every second. It was beautiful and a sight to see. Only thing is wish we could have stayed up longer like most of the others. Our guider had plans that night and didn't want to say up for to long.
