Many thanks to pilot Randy and his amazing crew. What a great reason to get up at 5:00 am. Beautiful weather. Calm relaxing flight. Beautiful views, soft landing (both of them). Can't say enough about how much we enjoyed the experience. Seriously recommend World Balloon if you're considering a hot air balloon flight.

Weather turned out to be perfect. Got to actually help a little putting up and packing away the Balloon and gear. That was interesting to watch. The ride was wonderful. The quiet and sensation of floating was amazing. ability to see the landscape was also great. Nick was our pilot and he did a great job of explaining the balloon... More

This was our first balloon ride, and it was great. Our pilot, Murray, is one of those guys you really feel secure with. He explained everything, didn't laugh at us out-of-shape people trying to climb into the basket, and took us on a very nice ride, dipping the Rio Grande river and making every dog in every neighborhood we flew...

What an excellent adventure! I had to wait a day from my original flight plan, but in all... it was just want I needed as a way to release some memories. I felt safe and secure the entire time - even when landing, sideways.

We booked the balloon flight for our 30th wedding anniversary. From the time we arrived at the launch site, World Balloon took great care of us. They let those who wished assist with blowing up the balloons. The flight was amazing! The champagne after landing topped off a wonderful experience!

This was one of those items on the bucket list for both my wife and me. We were on the 8/4/15 booking and Murray and the rest of the staff were top notch in service and professionalism. What a great group you all are. The ride was perfect and the views were fantastic. We were treated to a little bit... More

My wife and I really enjoyed our balloon ride with World Balloon. It was fun and we had a great experience from the early morning (ugh) set up to the fabulous views to a great landing and a great champaign toast. We would highly recommend World Balloon to everyone.

My bucket list includes a balloon ride, which we took, on Aug. 5, which also was our 48th wedding anniversary. It was a lovely, peaceful ride over the Rio Grande! We didn't go very far, about four miles, but it was just a lovely day. The whole crew was fun and nice and made our trip memorable. Great adventure.
