I am not a fan of heights but i had no problem with this. I wasn’t pleased that we had to wait 45 minutes for a late group but once they arrived, apologetic, we were off. It was quiet, smooth, Don was very entertaining and...More

We chose this company because the Verde Valley is gorgeous. The Red Rocks in Sedona are fine for hiking, but for ballooning, the Verde Valley is the best. We saw ruins from the air, the Verde River, and all the cool hiking trails from the...More

An exhilarating experience! Captain Don and his crew created a fabulous flight. We soared over the valley as we enjoyed Don’s repartee about the history and physics of balloon flight. The ground crew made climbing in and out of the basket so easy. Thank you!...More

We arrived at our pickup place at 6:30 AM. In this part of the country the best time for hot air balloons is in the mornings before the winds pick up. Our guide Don was funny and informative. We had a great view of the...More

From shuttle pick-up to drop off, this was a great adventure. The shuttle pick up was prompt, and just a short drive away from where the balloon was being prepped. The ground crew was awesome. Junior , the "chief" of the ground crew was a...More

Unfortunately, we were very disappointed with this company. The experience is in Cottonwood which is not in Sedona and does not give you the same beautiful picturesque views of the red rock range, we did not know that because we had never been to the...More
