After testing the wind and... More

My husband John made the flight; here are his thoughts, and photos, "SPECTACULAR experience, our pilot Murray has been flying in the Albuquerque Air for 20+ years, his humor and knowledge moved this ride from an" attraction" to an unforgettable experience

He was prompt, helpful and very interesting. He told us about the area, local restaurants and ballooning. We were met by pilot Will at the launch site. He was... More

We went on our anniversary since neither of us had ever done this, even though I grew up in Albuquerque. The morning we went, Will and Slade showed up exactly on time and the first thing they did was test the wind. Safety is no joke for these guys. As other companies filled their balloons, our guys continued to monitor... More

If in Albuquerque don’t miss the opportunity to go up in a hot air balloon. Thoroughly enjoyed myself although we had an “interesting” landing…we didn’t tip over but was a little rough! Pilot and chase crew were fabulous. Do it!

Our "pilot" was Murray and he was great. He let us help with the balloon so we were up close & personal with the whole experience. The flight was amazing!! The leaves were turning colors and it was beautiful. I'm short & it's an experience to climb into the basket but when we landed sideways (no one got hurt), I... More

Rebooking was very easy and painless and they were able to make it work with our schedule. This was the first time either of us had been in a... More

My husband surprised me with this trip for our wedding anniversary and it's one I will never forget. The pilot was very skilled and made me feel comfortable. It was so much better than I expected. I've wanted to ride in a hot air balloon since I was a kid and it fulfilled all my expectations. Highly recommend for anyone... More

My friend Penny and I, both 66, decided to cross hot air ballooning off of our buckets lists. The experience was so amazing that I would do it again and again. There is a calm and serenity that overcomes all fear when you are floating along looking at the scenery. Murray and the crew were very kind and professional. We... More

This was a first experience for both my wife and I. And I must say that World Balloon did a great job. We were pleasantly greeted at the launch site which was very easy to find. The process of inflating and flying was explained very well. Our pilot, Jonathan Wright, was very experienced and made us feel very safe. The... More
