We were visiting town for spring break and decided to try out a hot air balloon ride on the spur of the moment. It turned out to be a terrific experience. We started out around 7:30 near the Rio Grande. After taking off, we went up about 1,200 feet and then the pilot came down and briefly touched down on... More

My wife and I did the Albuquerque World Balloon one hour group (10 people) balloon experience with Muray and his crew on March 27, 2015. Had a wonderful time. Murray and his crew were marvelous! Highly recommend.

Rode on March 20 with Glo as our pilot. World Balloon had to cancel the day before due to low visibility, but were able to reschedule us our last day in Albuquerque. We covered a large area at different altitudes. Would have loved warmer weather, but can't fault them for that. On the whole, very enjoyable.

Amazing flight! Great pilot! Soft landing and ends with a mimosa! Must do! Once in a lifetime journey that everyone should try once.

First let me say we had never been on a hot air balloon ride, my wife was a bit scared and we didn't tell our boys we were going. As soon as we arrived any fears were gone! The professionalism and customer focus of our pilot Murray, and his crew members, Becky and Slade were EXCELLENT!! Murray is a 23... More

World Balloon was wonderful! Clear instructions, very organized, informative, and lovely champagne celebration following the flight with a quick education on the history of ballooning. Highly recommend!

Thanks to the weather, we had 2 cancellations before we finally went up. It was really worth the wait, and we appreciated the attitude in regards to our safety. Both pilot and ground crew were friendly and approachable and fun. Would do this again in a flash the next time we are in New Mexico.

We are two senior couples who wanted to check off another adventure on our bucket list. We couldn't have made a better choice than World. Our pilot, Murray, was personable, knowledgeable and very competent. The entire support crew got us off the ground efficiently and with great humor. This was a memorable flight in a beautiful balloon floating over Albuquerque... More
