What a wonderful way to start a beautiful day in Albuquerque. We met at the meeting area and the adventure began with our pilot Dean and his crew, greeting us with a warm handshake and a friendly smiles. After we assisted with unpacking and inflating the balloon, we hopped into the basket and we were off. What a beautiful day... More

What a memory that will last a life time !!! If you have ever thought about going up in a hot air balloon " Just Do It " . World Balloon staff and Murray, our balloon pilot were professional and knowledgeable thru out the whole experience. We will be back !!!!!!!

It was the morning of my birthday and my husband drove me to a parking lot in NW ABQ. It was a surprise hot air balloon flight! Unfortunately, the winds were too much that our flight that day had to be postponed. Our pilot, Dean, so kindly explained to us the reasons for his decision. We gladly signed up for... More

This was our first hot air balloon ride. We were very impressed with the entire experience from watching the balloon inflate to the landing! I appreciate how they kept the number of people per balloon basket to a very comfortable level - lots of space to enjoy the ride. Dean, our pilot, is clearly an experienced pilot and very informative... More

Ballooning and Albuquerque go together really well. Our pilot Murray was really nice and "funnay" lol. It was overall fun and entertaining. Bringing a camera is a must. The after flight ceremony was a blast. Everything was awesome besides a few cacti when we landed everything was smooth. The fun part is every ride is different you go where the... More

To say my experience flying 6800 feet in the sky was AWESOME - is an understatement! Murray (Pilot) and Slade (Pilot in training) treated us to an unforgettable experience. Murray explained everything in detail and gave a great "aerial tour" of Albuquerque. I've always wanted to be in the balloon looking down, and now I have. I've told everyone and... More

My wife and have been wanting to do this for years and a business trip to Albuquerque was the perfect opportunity. We picked World Balloon because of their 40 years in the business, figuring they knew what they were doing. We were right!! The whole experience from the pre-dawn start to the landing on residential street was amazing! That's right,... More

Murray, our pilot, was great. Super experienced, friendly and fun. We had a great ride. I thought the "continental breakfast" was somewhat tacky, with pre-packaged Otis Spunkmeyer muffins, but whatever. Everything else was awesome and so worth the money. We got lapel pins, certificates and souvenir champagne glasses to take with us as reminders of this once in a lifetime... More

My wife, 12-year old son and I decided to book a balloon flight as part of our spring break visit to New Mexico. It was wonderful. My son was really impressed for the first half-hour or so. Then it got a little boring for him. Murray, our pilot, was excellent with him, talking to him about the area and the... More

While on vacation in Albuquerque, we took a hot air balloon flight. We booked through World Balloon, after we read copious reviews and blogs. Their balloons are meticulously maintained and the pilots are primarily concerned with safety, and first class service- in that order. Our pilot, Murray, along with his wife were fantastic. We felt completely safe, and Murray was... More
