The ride was amazing. The people from World Balloon were professional and personable. We felt very safe and enjoyed the entire process of inflating the balloon, the ride over Albuquerque, deflating and packing up the balloon, and the champagne toast afterwards.

World Balloon was amazing! This is the type of company and crew that goes above and beyond (pun intended)! We felt safe, had a ball, and would highly recommend this company! Just do it! It was worth every penny. In fact, we felt like we got more than we paid for!

We have never been on a hot air balloon ride and it was something we have always wanted to do. It was a really neat experience getting the balloon prepared and actually riding in it, but the whole time we were in the air we were over houses… The other balloons in the air were moving around to different areas,...

World Balloon is the greatest. They were very friendly on the phone and answered my questions that I had. The day of the flight, the crew was happy and friendly and really wanted to make our experience memorable. Our flight pilot was amazing and we felt so safe and trusted him. My husband was very apprehensive before he left but... More

World Balloon had an excellent crew. They were experienced and they were enjoyable to be with. We saw some awesome views of the town and the Rio Grande. We also saw coyotes with a kill along the banks of the river as we descended to do a 'splash n dash'. A bed and breakfast recommended them and said they will... More

We had such an awesome time with Glo as our pilot. This company is top notch, helping thru the whole process of setup and taking down of the balloon was just part of the experience. Incredible views of Albuquerque and the Rio Grande. Thanks world balloon for trip we'll never forget.

For our wedding anniversary, we started the festivities off with a great balloon flight. The pilot, Murray, was super! We dipped the basket in the Rio Grande, and soared to the clear, clean skies of early-morning, beautiful Albuquerque. The landing was what one would expect in 7 MPH winds; a bit bumpy, but a great experience. The mimosas back at... More

We had a really fun time flying with World Balloon. Our pilot was professional, friendly, and fun. I especially liked flying very low over the Rio Grande.

Planned the trip for our grand kids aged 11,13,15. They said trip was okay but were extremely disappointed they didn't get to "splash and dash". Would recommend another location. Too many balloons trying to fly in same area prevented flight over river. Staff was very nice but did not explain several balloons would be in such close vicinity.

WBOwner, Owner at World Balloon, responded to this review

Thank you very much for your feedback. Albuquerque is the ballooning capital of the world, so having a ton of balloons in the air is actually our goal, and pretty much a daily occurrence. We think that the vast majority of our guests love seeing all the balloons flying. In fact, this is the first time I have ever had... More
