Riding the soft desert winds is the perfect way to celebrate your special occasions with friends, family or when there is romance in the air. And, there is no better place to enjoy it than around Taos. We fly the scenic Rio Grande Gorge as it cuts through the high desert mesa like a 650 ft. deep Grand Canyon. The famous Rio Grande River gently flows through it. As we're gently gliding and enjoying the beautiful panoramas we drop down into the Gorge and kiss the river for the most thrilling balloon ride anywhere. We see baby coyotes, deer, mountain goats and elk in the Spring, blossoming flowers, bushes and cacti in Summer, the colorful changing Fall foliage and the beautiful snow covered Sangre de Cristo Mountains in the Winter - there is always majestic beauty everywhere! Join us for your adventure of a lifetime today!

All I can do is reiterate how fantastic an experience this was. Judging from others' photos, it would have been cool to see another balloon flying with us, but we still had an exhilarating flight in our lone large balloon with a basket big enough for all 8 of us (plus Chris the pilot). It was also so nice to... More

A great experience for everyone. Very early morning start. Make sure when making the reservation if you want pick up in Taos. Otherwise, you are expected to meet them at visitor center for the drive to the launch site. When driving out to the launch site, the pilot and staff are very informative about the area and ballooning. All though... More

This is a spectacular experience, with very professional people. 1.5 hours in a gorgeous environment at sunrise, down into the gorges, touch water, just amazing. Pilot both very kind and extremely good (ranked 7 and 11 at the Albuquerque balloon festival gathering over 600 balloons!). Big horn sheep to be seen fro close on most rides. Just do it! Worth...

We were picked up at our hotel early in the AM, brought out to meet up with crew and other riders and then brought out to site to check for feasibility, then quickly on to another. They set up and we could help fill the balloon, etc. Took off up over the Great Gorge for some spectacular views, taken down... More

Ditto Patrick B.'s review below, with whom I ballooned with. I will also add that, for anyone afraid of heights as am I, have no fear!! The ride is so peaceful and beautiful, one forgets about any neuroses one may harbor. In addition to Chris being a super informative and funny guide, I need to give a shout out to... More

This is a unique and remarkable experience. It was a beautiful clear crisp morning, silently drifting through the New Mexico sky, surrounded by mountains, endless fields of sage, views in all direction for miles, picking up wind at different altitudes to float over the Rio Grande, and then a splash into the river as we floated by rocks and trees...

What a wonderful and amazing ride!! Our crew were very professional and friendly. My girlfriend and I did this ride and would highly recommend this company. We were in the air for a good hour. The only thing negative was that the burner's on the balloon are very hot on the top of our heads. I do not know if... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our balloon trip with Kris. I felt completely safe the entire time. Kris is really making an effort to ensure that everyone is having a great time and getting a good look at the Gorge.

Doing a Hot Air Balloon ride has been on my list of things to do for a long time. I finally can check this experience off my list. Pueblo Balloon Company were great to work with. Chris, our very experienced pilot and Alex, part of the chase crew were wonderful people to deal with. I would highly recommend this company... More

What a great experience! I could go on and on listing reasons why to choose Pueblo Balloon, but my title says it all. A perfect experience with Chris and Zack!
