About Pueblo Balloons
Riding the soft desert winds is the perfect way to celebrate your special occasions with friends, family or when there is romance in the air. And, there is no better place to enjoy it than around Taos. We fly the scenic Rio Grande Gorge as it cuts through the high desert mesa like a 650 ft. deep Grand Canyon. The famous Rio Grande River gently flows through it. As we're gently gliding and enjoying the beautiful panoramas we drop down into the Gorge and kiss the river for the most thrilling balloon ride anywhere. We see baby coyotes, deer, mountain goats and elk in the Spring, blossoming flowers, bushes and cacti in Summer, the colorful changing Fall foliage and the beautiful snow covered Sangre de Cristo Mountains in the Winter - there is always majestic beauty everywhere! Join us for your adventure of a lifetime today!

I took a private flight, just my daughter (27), me (56) and the pilot, Sol (?). We used a smaller basket than when there is a larger group. For us, it was one of our top father-daughter experiences in our lifetimes. The view going down the gorge is amazing. Sol is knowledgeable about both the technical elements of flying and its history. Thus, the experience makes you feel one with other hot air balloon travelers across the ages.

I am a professional pilot and always check ratings and accident history, if any, and several reviews before flying with anyone!! I also never rely on internet reviews, I have pilot friends around Taos I relied upon to make our final decision. No problems with this company and excellent pilots. This was my wife and I first balloon ride..

My wife and I took the sunrise hot air balloon flight on a chilly, but beautiful October morning. Fortunately we (and 6 other passengers) were able to experience a flight through the Rio Grande Gorge in an area north of the US 64 bridge. It was fantastic! Sol, the pilot, flew us through about a mile of the gorge, even to a point of only a few feet above the river. The gorge is beautiful with the clear running Rio Grande, amazing rock formations, mule deer, big horn sheep, and rainbow trout to be seen. After touring the gorge, we ascended to an altitude of about 1300 ft (elevation about 8100 ft) where we had an eagle eye view of the landscape below. We descended to an open field for a successful landing, where we were met by the ground crew. Flight time was just under an hour. Sol is obviously a skilled pilot and a great tour guide with lots of knowledge of local area and hot air balloon history. My wife wants to fly again tomorrow! The itinerary for that day was to meet at a parking lot in Taos at 6:30am, then ride about a half hour to the launch site, then about a half hour for the pilot and crew to set up the balloon and for flight instruction, then about an hour flight, then about an hour post landing for packing up and celebrating, then about a half hour to drive back to Taos. Obviously sunrise times and weather conditions impact schedule and flight path.

I searched extensively online for a balloon company in Taos and ended up going with the recommendation of my hotel. The entire team at Pueblo Balloons was extremely professional, knowledgeable and very friendly. The pilot Sol exceeded my expectations and provided a safe and enjoyable once-in-a-lifetime experience. The service was top notch from the pick up at hotel to the champagne toast at the end.
