Tommy was a great pilot! Would do it again in a second!!
Had a great time! Captain Mike England and the crew provided an awesome experience.
Captain Mike and crew were fantastic. The balloon ride was smooth and staff made everything enjoyable for both of us on the ride. Steve our driver was courteous and friendly and answered any questions we had. Food after ride was excellent. Thanks so much for a wonderful balloon flight in Phoenix. We will definitely do it again!
Loved the customer service this company provides - all the way from the receptionist/reservationist to the crew, the pilot, and the brunch at the completion of our flight. Will recommend this for my next out-of-town visitors, or a gift certificate for employee appreciation day at my office.
Loved, Loved, Loved the ride, everything about it! Nice people and a beautiful experience!!! Will definitely recommend your company!
Captain Mike England was very knowledgeable of where we were going and where we were. Had a great personality. Very good time. Is there a place we can purchase t-shirts from our flight?
Very professional and courteous crew members. Great overall experience.
From being picked up at the hotel by Nick, to John manning the balloon & entertaining us , our experience was top notch!!! I highly recommend to anyone wanting to experience such a majestic opportunity.
The whiole experience from beginning to end was fantastic!
This trip was an incredible experience. Of 3 hot air balloon flights I've taken (Illinois, Albuquerque, and Arizona), this flight was by far the best. The pilot was knowledgeable, entertaining, and highly skilled--had a fantastic landing. The food and celebration after the flight was a great way to end the perfect trip. I highly recommend Hot Air Expeditions and their staff with no reservations! Thank you for a great experience. CJ from Illinois
I'm scared of heights a little but it was my first time to Phoenix and really wanted to get a feel of the la escape and desert. I was on a work trip so I couldn't get out very much, the hot air ballon seemed ideal. Captain John was perfect and his years of experience made me feel at ease. The sights are beautiful and it's very tranquil. The celebration breakfast at the end is a wonderful touch.
Loved the hot air balloon ride experience. It was beautiful and peaceful. Tommy was our pilot and he was great, joked around and explained things about the hot air balloon. If you are afraid of heights, no worries, you go up gradually and don’t even realize how high up you are. Great time, highly recommend it!
Beautiful day, wonderful pilot, very satisfying breakfast, gorgeous views, extremely accommodating!
