Phoenix Hot Air Balloon Ride at Sunrise

Most Sonoran Desert off-roading tours may take you off-the-beaten path, but they still don’t offer 360-degree views of the stunning desert landscape. During this hot air balloon ride from Phoenix, take to the air for the best vantage point of the area. And, as a bonus, see the sunrise, too. After your flight, reminisce about the beauty of the Sonoran Desert over a Champagne breakfast.

We did a sunrise ride in Colorado Springs.. the entire trip was so awesome! The crew did an amazing job of explaining the entire process. Soaring quietly through the air as the sun rose.. an ending with a toast & blessing ! It was a bucket list item.. so glad we did it here !!

Definitely a bucket list item! These flights are completely weather dependent, so don't be surprised if your trip gets cancelled the day prior. Fortunately the weather today was perfect! Our pilot, Patrick was wonderful, funny and made the experience worthwhile. Rainbow Ryders have experienced pilots and there is a reason they are the number one hot air balloon company in the SW. There was another hot air balloon company out at the same time and it seems they were having difficulty navigating their balloons. They offer snacks and beverages at the end of the trip. I would highly recommend Rainbow Ryders if you would like to book a hot air balloon ride!

Wife and I had a wonder time, but I have to totally agree with a previous reviewer almiami that at the end of the ride you have to finish paying for the trip, and you have the guy hovering over you, suggesting that you leave a tip on an IPad . I never experience anything like that in my life, could you imagine a waiter or a waitress doing that at a restuarant.
