The only Phoenix Balloon Ride with a Door Basket!

Our Season Has Started! Come Fly With Us!

Ready to get out of the house and experience life?! Arizona remains open and accessible. Come join us at Destination Balloon Rides on one of our Epic Private flights for you and someone special. Or bring the whole family on a Private group flight!

And while some Hot Air Balloon companies in Phoenix are still using large baskets carrying 10 – 20 passengers each, we at Destination Balloon Rides are a very small company. We have a basket carrying a maximum of 5 people (including the pilot) with plenty of space to breathe for all passengers.

In addition, we are following all CDC guidelines and FAA guidelines as it comes to cleaning and the health of our staff and passengers. That’s why all passengers will get a mask to wear during the tour (It’s yours to keep). If you’d like, you can also book a Shared flight that would be with one other couple.

I’d love to answer any questions you have about our plans regarding COVID-19.  Feel free to call or text me at (302) 236-7425

– Chief Pilot Shawn

Why should you choose Destination Balloon Rides?

We are one of the few Phoenix hot air balloon companies who focus exclusively on small groups.

While other companies pack as many people as they can into their baskets, here at Destination Balloon Rides we focus on making your balloon flight as enjoyable as possible. This means small groups and personalized attention on you.

Floating on Wonderful Praise From Our Happy Customers

Fabulous Experience!!!

This was our first hot air balloon experience and it was AMAZING!!! Shawn was able to calm my extremely nervous boyfriend rather quickly, as he was clearly experienced and very knowledgeable!

This was my first time in a balloon and I can't wait to do it again! Shawn was very informative! I live here and yet learned more about the valley than I could have imagined! Professional, informative, fun and inspiring!

Great experience

My wife and I took a ride with Shawn. Everything was clearly explained, safe, and fun. We saw beautiful mountains and desert views and Shawn also pointed out interesting facts about the scenery. Highly recommended!

First Time Flight

Excellent flight. Was a little nervous at first, since I’m was my first flight. Shawn made me feel right at ease. Explained everything he was doing & the purpose behind it. Pointed out various points of interest.

What a wonderful time! Could not have been a better experience. They met us even before they even set up the balloon to make sure any fears were eliminated. From there the blast began! Beautiful, smooth flight, and so much fun!
