What people are saying about Phoenix

A superb experience. Wasn't sure what to expect in all honesty but very glad we booked this. Very peaceful floating over the Sonoran desert. Our pilot Bill was very experienced, put everyone at ease from the start and his knowledge and wit during the ride all added to the day. The champagne breakfast at 730am in the desert was unreal. Thank you guys. Ps ,,, watch out for the cacti when wandering around. They are a real pain.

This trip was fabulous! The guides were so organized and accommodating. We had such a fun time and Jordan was excellent! He shared some great info about the surroundings and answers all our questions. Highly recommend this for visitors that want to see some beautiful scenery and get some lovely pictures. We we’re pleased to see some wild horses during our trip as well! It was an excellent trip!

This was an amazing experience. Our pilot Jon was great, and kept us entertained with his jokes. I mentioned that I had gifted myself this trip for my birthday, and the crew went out of their way to make it special and memorable. The whole experience was seamless and very organized. Fantastic, 10/10, would recommend.

Staff were amazing, trip was so fun. I wish there was more info on “what to wear/how to prepare”. Wish it was a little longer, we were only in the air for just over an hour but I assumed it would be more based on the 3.5 hour booking

We loved it! We will definitely go again when we are back in Arizona. Jacob our pilot was super attentive! And such a professional pilot! We felt safe and the location was great
