This was the highlight of our 9-day Scottsdale vacation. The early morning pick up was right on time and the whole morning was fabulous. The whole crew were friendly, informative and made you feel at ease. I would highly recommend this for everyone, even those with a fear of heights. You felt nothing while up in the air, but had a fabulous view of the land below.

The air balloon ride was totally worth waking up at an unearthly hour. It's not cheap but overall a must do at least once in life. Only reason u have it 4 and not 4 stars is our ride send to be shorter than the other balloons that took off around the same time as us. Our pilot and his assistants seemed to get a later start compared to the others. Our pilot didn't go as high as some of the other balloons and then it was like we landed before the others. That's days it was a great experience!
