Phoenix Hot Air Balloon Half-Day Adventure
- Duration: 3.5 hours
Overall, it was a fun ride with my guide, Kathy. We had many stops along the way so she could tell me about the local wild life and flora. I did think it was a bit pricey for a riding around residential areas, but it was a 2-2.5 hour bike ride so it was good exercise. I think some spots going uphill could be a challenge for people not as fit or without much lower body strength. However, I thought it was a casual, and "easy" ride if you are looking to be active, yet low intensity.
My hiking guide was Mr. Denny and he was absolutely amazing! Throughout the hike he explained about different type of vegetation and their history. He always made sure that we stopped on a regular basis and I had some water so that I would not get the hydrated. And he was overall a very pleasant and nice man. The trail was perfect. Not too rocky or complicated especially since it was my first time.
I HIGHLY recommend this tour. My son and I had already done 2 days “on our own”, and within the first 15 minutes I knew more about Arizona than I had learned in 48 hours. Eric was AMAZING. His knowledge of Arizona history, vegetation, culture, folklore, traditions - just to name a few, was invaluable! This is a MUST DO especially if you can get Eric as your driver/guide/expert.
Rainbow Ryders Hot air balloon experience was one me and my girlfriend will never forget. Absolutely stunning views and a peaceful sunrise drifting around phenolic on a hot air balloon amazing piloted by Patrick. 5/5 stars
Daniel is an incredibly knowledgeable and charismatic guide. He's a great storyteller and I enjoyed learning about the history of Arizona. Tour was on time, pretty seamless and the experience was wonderful
