Float is a new approach to balloon rides. We only fly balloons that offer all of our customers and basket-edge view. Book right from our page!
Hello. We're Float Balloon Tours! We fly just north of Phoenix and Scottsdale, in the open Sonoran desert, overlooking the Bradshaw Mountains and Lake Pleasant - and our approach to ballooning is a little different. We believe that less often means much more, so we pride ourselves on only keeping things small, intimate, and local. Everyone get's a basket-edge view! We also realize that we're showc

(sound on) Very exciting news; we're thrilled to announce that Float Balloon Tours is now part of @rainbowryders Hot Air Balloon Co.
We started Float with one balloon and two team members in 2014, and in the time since we've humbly played part in celebrating and sharing flight over the desert with thousands of passengers, while learning from and growing alongside some of the best pilots, flight crew, and humans on the planet.
These five years have given us (by far and away) our earliest mornings, biggest celebrations, hardest-learned lessons, most resounding moments of connection and decision, and the clearest points of joy in our lives to date. We simply wouldn't be who we are today without it.
This sale both increases Rainbow Ryders's Phoenix fleet by 25%, and creates an amazing opportunity to expand on the very reason we are all here; to give extraordinary experiences. We (Matt & Olivia) will continue to grow our other company, @clothandflame and together will work to create shared packages that combine Rainbows' reputation for excellence and constant growth with C&F’s ability to create bespoke culinary pop-ups wherever they can be imagined.
Enjoy this nostalgic peek back at the last few years, then take a moment to follow both @rainbowryders and @clothandflame to see what we're creating together from here.

We get over the the desert on every flight. Not half. Not most of the time. Every single one. #thedesertisbeautifultoo

Austin & Kristen just got engaged on an adventure flight over Lake Pleasant. We were lucky to carry these two for a little over an hour, and we’ll let their sweet love take it from here. 📷: @marcmintz

Arizona is where we started. We built our dream of what a balloon ride could be here, so our flight paths, our post-flight dinners in the desert, and everything we do is designed to highlight this unforgettable wilderness we get to call home. 📷: @marcmintz
We're offering $50 off weekday and $40 off weekend flights as we are adding another balloon to our schedule! All flights end with a gourmet brunch or dinner cooked by tableside in the desert. Flights can be booked for almost any future date. If we were booked-up on your day before, try us again! ☎️☎️☎️
Grab hold of adventure, any way you can.
Moms are carriers. Every day they're out lifting spirits, carrying burdens and actual people, pulling up pants and expectations, keeping injured limbs and consciousness elevated, and raising the world.
So this Mother's Day, we're carrying our moms (in balloons)

Short phone video of night flight we did a few months ago during the supermoon. The only things to break the cover of night were the glow of another balloon, the rare intersection below, and the glitter of Phoenix in the distance. One of the strangest ballooning experiences we've had thanks to Shane over at Aerogelic.
