We went ballooning for the first time with Northern Lights. They picked us up at our hotel at 5:50am (gulp!). They drove to a secluded location, filled up their balloon and we took off. It was us, one other couple and the Pilot and Captain, Tom and Blair. Absolutely beautiful and Blair kept up a running commentary that was entertaining... More

We had our hot air balloon experience with northern light balloon expeditions in Sedona. Definitely one of our favorite during our trip in Arizona! The landscape is amazing and you just don't want to miss the experience. We had Doug as our pilot who is very reliable and informative. The ride was really enjoyable and remained very stable during our... More

From the time you start on this 75 minute ride, you are mesmerized by the beauty of the red rock and surrounding mountains. Its everything you read about and then some. The attached photo says it all. The company is very professional, the pilot is also a very good guide offering fascinating tidbits of information along the way. They launched... More

The aerostatic crew was timely and friendly as they escorted us to the initial take-off location. Pilot Daniel was very knowledgeable about area geography and history. We can't say enough good things about how safe we felt in our 1 hour journey around the Sedona valley. Definitely worth the price and effort.

We checked another item off of our life list by taking a hot air balloon ride with Blair and his crew on Mar. 20th after deciding that Sedona would be a great place to this. It was everything we had hoped it would be-beautiful morning and scenery, competent and friendly chase team and crew members and a pilot who made... More

Had a wonderful time today on our hot air balloon ride. Doug our pilot had 43 years of experience and made us feel at ease. Would definitely do it again.

I had read reviews on TripAdvisor and none that I read actually addressed where you flew so the six of us went with our concierges recommendation and chose northern lights over red rock. After going through the experience and looking back now, I feel we might have made the wrong choice (unless someone can reply to this and show what... More

We were surprised to see your somewhat negative review considering your praise to the pilot and his crew on the day of your flight. To answer your question, we prefer our launch site for a variety of reasons. No, it is not close to the formation our competitor flew by that day but we have the versatility of climbing high...

This is a must-do if you are in Sedona! Our pilot Danny was awesome, extremely knowledgeable and made everyone very comfortable as we had a couple of nervous people in our group. They operate with smaller balloons - there were 7 people total in our gondola including the pilot and I loved the intimate nature of that. The views of... More
