What you can expect

Board a nine-story-tall hot air balloon and let the calm breeze carry you over Phoenix and the Sonoran Desert. Enjoy a champagne toast to celebrate the morning's adventure as you sit back and relish the views of diverse wildlife, dramatic landscapes, and the rich variety of nature.

The adventure begins as you step inside the uniquely woven basket, hear the burner ignite to begin the inflation process, and gradually lift off into the open sky. Feel the elation of drifting 5,000 feet (1,524 m) over the vast open desert.

Fly confidently with FAA-certified pilots knowledgeable in both hot air balloon safety and the nature of the Sonoran Desert. Here you find the only place in the world where the famous saguaro cactus grows in the wild, reaching 15 – 50 feet (4.5 – 15 m) in height during their 150-year lifespans.

Continue sailing through the Arizona sky as you sweep just over tree tops, float past the Four Peaks, and watch the sunrise paint the sky a golden hue. Keep an eye out for desert wildlife such as coyotes and native birds such as Gila woodpeckers, purple martins, and gilded flickers.

Your balloon ride allows for breathtaking aerial photo opportunities that capture the Sonoran Desert's highlights from an unparalleled view. The adventure wraps up with a refreshing pastry breakfast once you've set foot back on the ground.

I had the best experience. This was my 1st balloon ride and my pilot was Kyle. I must say he made the trip enjoyable with his personality and expertise. He has a chill laid back demeanor but at the same time he is so much fun. My group was pretty awesome as well so the experience as a whole was a 10. I highly recommended if you're in the area to use this company and request Kyle. I will definitely come back in the future.

So much fun! Watching them set up the balloon, filling it with air, and then floating in the sky was a great experience. Morghan was a great pilot!

Wonderful experience! Jesse R was our guide and truly delivered a fun, relaxing experience. I hope to book with them in Albuquerque in the Spring. Would definitely recommend Rainbow Ryders for a wonderful experience--it is clear that they take pride in their work and their equipment.

The whole process was super easy! We checked in at 5a.m. they took us to our destination made sure the wind was good we waited so they could get the balloons ready to go and we where up in the air. Our pilot Kyle was the funniest ever made the experience 100x better! After that we came down they disarmed the balloons and we had champagne. It was overall a 20/10 experience!
