My husband and I booked this as our first excursion in Arizona. The canyon was breathtaking, it almost doesn't look real. The hike there and through the canyon was a breeze and it's a family friendly activity and guaranteed you will leave with magnificent photos. Most importantly, our tour guide Keola was informative, fun, and provided us with interesting history regarding the canyon. I recommend this excursion to everyone, you won't regret it. It is worth every penny.

We loved our day, aloft with a light breeze, gorgeous sunrise and desert scenery! You would never even know the balloon just went up to 5,000 feet without all the others around you rising and setting. I think there were a total of 15 groups in balloons taking to the air… views from above as they prepared to take flight were remarkable! The pilot was so informative and polite, a 9 year veteran but also extremely hilarious. We are already planning a family outing!

It was great but did find out we each paid $20 extra going thru this site. It was already expensive but this was a blow to us when we got there. Should pay $65 instead of $89

It was a really excellent program with an outstanding organization. Everything was well prepared. Our pilot was a real professional with a good humor. Thanks a lot!

Amazing views, continuous photo opportunities, some steep ladder steps. Don’t forget your phone!
