We were three adults and two twelve year olds. The kids loved being involved in setting up the balloon. The champagne toast and history of ballooning at the end of the... More

I am from the East Coast and we came for a visit to Albuquerque and had to do a balloon ride. I made the reservations and it was a very easy process. The balloon ride experience was SPECTACULAR!! My two teenage boys loved it. It was an amazing family memory.

A must, a privilege, an awsome peaceful adventure! Early morning is the best. Nothing compares to the quietness of the ride. Pilot was excellent.

Company and pilot Al were great. Flight was smooth and exciting. Enjoyed the hands on experience. Very affordable with 2 or more. Plenty of mementos to take home.

We had such a good time. All the crew were friendly and helpful. We got to help inflate the balloon and pack it after landing. Al, our pilot, told us neat stories about flying balloons and he and the other pilot told us about the first balloon flights while we were drinking champagne after the flight. We felt very safe...

We had 3 generations in our party of 6 and everyone loved their first hot air balloon ride! Captain Chuck and the whole team was professional and kind. We felt so safe and learned a lot about ballooning. Very peaceful ride.

We had a wonderful experience here. Our party of five, three grand daughters, wife and me, had the balloon to ourselves, along with our pilot Al. It was really a nice ride, peaceful and smooth, over the Rio Grande. Helping to fill the balloon and get it aloft was really great fun as well as helping to fold the balloon... More
