With all the hustle and bustle in Las Vegas, it’s not easy catching unobstructed views of the area. During this hot-air balloon ride, drift across the sky, hovering high and low, for a flight with spectacular 360-degree views of both the mountains and deserts of Nevada. Then, touch down to enjoy a Champagne toast, making this tour ideal for couples or people celebrating a special occasion.

What to Expect
Make your own way to the departure point (hotel pick up available for a nominal fee). After a short safety briefing, climb into the basket of your hot air balloon and take off. Your pilot takes you up into the sky for a hot air balloon ride over the rugged desert landscape of southwest Nevada. Afterward, your pilot guides the hot air balloon back to land. When you touch down, share a Champagne toast, and then end your tour with a return to the meeting point. Bonus: During the winter months, select the sunset option to see the sun dip below the horizon and cast a golden glow across the area (see exact dates upon checkout).

This was a superb experience, floating in the air where it felt quiet and poetic. I felt safe even though it realistically might sound impossible. I would do it again and having bubbles after the ride was pretty fun too! If it helps, some of the people in the balloon expressed

All facets of the experience were well executed, the pilot was humorous and the ride itself was amazing. We experienced fantastic views, an incredibly calm and quiet trip (except for the burners, which could roast marshmallows 40 feet away). Definitely one to consider for your

If I could give a review on just the customer service, professionalism and actual flight time (60 minutes) it would be a full 5 stars. This was an amazing experience. Because we’ve ballooned before- I have to be honest the whole process is a little daunting with a ton of wasted

Thank you very much for your feedback! We always try and learn from every review and improve our processes wherever possible. We don't ever tell anyone they will be near the strip though, so we aren't sure where that came from. All of our advertising is very clear that we do not fly near the strip. If there is any way you can let us know where you saw that, we would appreciate it. Again, we will always take this back and try and improve our procedures and the quality of the experience so we sincerely thank you for the feedback! Buoyantly, Vegas Balloon Rides
