From The minute we pulled up to the champagne toast at the end it was an excellent experience. The pilot and crew are friendly the scenery was amazing. If you're thinking about doing this just do it

It was an amazing experience, the pilot's passion for ballooning made the experience that much more enjoyable. We felt very safe, not hurried and well informed. Can't wait to go back and take my family.

We enjoyed the balloon ride in June with our German daughter, who enjoyed a year with us and returned to Germany the next week. The ride was smooth, operators very friendly and superb memories were created! Thanks to all!

What a class act!! I treated my dad and husband for a fathers day balloon flight. What a life changing experience! They really enjoyed the flight, and the knowledgeable crew. We finished our flight with yummy mimosas and great conversations :) Looking forward to our next flight. Thanks a million

The balloon ride was so incredible with such a peaceful and serene view of the city, which you couldn't get from any other point in town. The experience was even better than I imagined. The pilot Will Swanson was so experienced and knowledgeable and friendly and the crew was equally experienced and friendly. Absolute fun from start to finish. Wish... More

My Dad asked for a balloon flight for his 80th birthday. He is in good health for his age but walks with a cane. Murray the pilot and the two crew members were amazing in assisting my Dad, and all the passengers for that matter, in and out of the basket. They engage each passenger and share stories about the...

My wife & I had a great ride with World Balloon! Murray was our captain and there were 9 of us on the flight. I would recommend this to anyone that is interested in going on a morning ride, they are fantastic! Would do this again anytime we find ourselves back in Albuquerque NM. Loved it!

A fabulous experience from beginning to end. Was able to help the crew get the balloons set up and broken down - they tell you all about the art of ballooning and how it works. Helps you appreciate how much work goes into these flights every single day. My sister was freaking out about getting in and out of the... More

Absolutely the best view in Albuquerque!!! What an incredible way to experience the skies... You just can't get these 360 views in any other way. Such a peaceful place to be, too. The pilots and chase crews really made the experience a great one. They were professional, kind, and clearly experienced. The humor and mimosas didn't hurt, either. I would... More

My wife and I took this ride as an anniversary gift. No one in our family has done this type of adventure due to living in NM where balloons are so common, however it was a wonderful experience. Staff were knowledgeable and extremely helpful. The overall ride and sights were spectacular. Thank you for making this a special day for... More
