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

They have a perfect safety record and Murray, our pilot, and his crew were professionals and a lot of fun. This company has been in business for 41 continuous years and its founder, Sid Cutter, was also... More

I really enjoyed the atmosphere that was created by the World ballon staff. They made sure everyone was safe and took pictures. The flight was awesome and the pilot knew a lot about the surrounding areas. We ended the flight with a drink and a brief history of Hot air ballooning was a nice touch as well. An awesome experience.

To other guest considering this venue: - All in all, I would be hesitant to recommend this to a friend. - The workers seemed confused as to who... More

Thank you very much for your feedback. It is truly appreciated. We are obviously very disappointed that you didn't feel like you received our normal World Class experience. To clarify a few things though; each pilot does have a complete and accurate manifest when they arrive, but on this particular day unfortunately a couple of folks were confused about the... More
