NileGuide Expert Says:
Margie and the crew from Hot Air Expeditions have been offering visitors a bird's eye view of the Valley for years! Keep in mind that a hot-air balloon ride requires cool temperatures so balloons can only take off at Sunrise or Sunset. Keep this in mind when you book your tour, as you may need to wake up as early as 4:00am to get out to the launch site.
- As you ascend you will be astounded at how light you feel. Hovering over the valley, you can see and hear the life of the Sonoran desert. Upon landing, an elegant table setting, complete with tablecloth and china, awaits you. Delicacies prepared by a chef will whisk you away to a culinary wonderland. This is not for those on a tight budget but it's definitely worth the money spent for the memory created! The launch site is at Cave Creek and Jomax Road. Sunset flights operate seasonally, November through March.
