Sooo worth it! If you've never been in a balloon before, it is a MUST and Private Balloon Flights enhances the joy even more. They take the time to teach you about the balloon and all it's parts and let you help in the set up and fold up of the balloon. So much fun!!!

Thank you Al for our magical experience in the air! Thank you for taking care of our sister when her nerves got the best of her. :) We had a wonderful time and would do it again.

What a magical experience! Loved the fact this wasn't so crowded that you couldn't see out the side! Wonderful end with champaign and glass with balloon prayer on it! Would do it again if I was in the area!

The Pilot was friendly and knowledgeable and the balloon appeared new and well maintained. We felt entirely safe the entire flight. The flight was not at all what we expected... What we experienced was the peaceful serenity of floating on the breeze like a feather. I can't think of anything negative about the adventure. However, be prepared to help the... More

We had a group of four and were on the second flight up of the morning. It was so much fun to help the first group take off, chase after them, and then load the balloon up on the truck after our flight. There was so much more involved than just riding in the balloon! We really enjoyed helping the... More

Thanks to the crew at Private Balloon Flights. We flew in the couples basket and the event was outstanding. Frank was the pilot and Pam was the ground pilot. We had the experience that memories are made of and would recommend this team. Get involved some day on a balloon flight experience. Thanks to all at Private Balloon Flights.

We had planned a balloon ride while in Moab but decided to wait until Albuquerque, the "Balloon Capital of the World." While there are many choices there, we selected Private Balloon Flights for my wife who is normally afraid of heights and agreed to try this for a one time trial. Our flight captain was Dr. Sharon who was not... More
