My 2nd Time to do this but loved it even more this time. They are very cautious and safety conscious here! Besides-What could be better than flying high and then dipping into the rio grand gorge - actually touching the water with the basket? Crazy fun! Followed by a little brunch and champagne! A great day!!!

Up at 5:30 anxiously awaiting our pickup from our Pilot. After rounding up the friendly and helpful crew we were off to the high desert to unpack the gear and head skyward! All in all a wonderful experience. Skilled crew, touch of local color, knowledgeable about Ballonning and the local geography. Would diffently recommend and do it again sometime. The... More

Had an amazing experience with Pueblo. Was very nervous heading into it but wasn't nervous at all on the flight. We felt that the pilot and crew were top notch and very safety conscious. Definitely a must do in beautiful Taos!

Both pilots that I met had years of accident-free experience, and I felt very safe with the one we actually went with. Safety is #1 with these guys, and having an awesome some experience is also clearly very important to them. My daughter and I had the best time ever! Well worth the price.

I have wanted to take my wife on a balloon ride for years but was skeptical about doing so due to her fear. When I saw the reviews of Pueblo Balloon I felt confident this was the outfit to use. Kris did not disappoint. His ability to engage you from the moment he picks you up through the whole experience... More

Kris, Dave, Mel, and Elizabeth made our first (and definitely not last) hot air balloon ride an unforgettable experience. The entire experience from the hotel pick up to the champagne brunch was remarkable. It is hard to describe but the ride is exciting and peaceful at the same time. We're bringing the kids back next summer! Top notch...you will not... More

My husband and I took our two kids (ages 6 and 9) and we all loved it. The kids were not scared at all. It was a new experience for us and I'm so glad that we spent the money and went. The basket has no door so you have to climb into it. The take off was super easy... More

Our family group of 8 had a fantastic time! Kris, our pilot, was friendly and fun. He was great at helping my nervous daughter to relax and enjoy the flight. We had fun helping to fill the balloon, and pack it into the bag at the end. Touching the Rio Grande was fabulous! We were picked up from our hotel... More

I was really hesitant to try ballooning but Kris put our minds at ease immediately. He continually explained exactly what was happening so we knew in advance what to expect from filling the balloon, getting in, and landing. Kris was the best and his crew member Randy was there every step of the way to add to our enjoyment. Kris... More
