My wife and I really enjoyed the experience on our flight in a hot air balloon. The story told by the pilot and the champagne after the flight was very entertaining. Also enjoyed the privilege of backing up the ballon and basket after the flight.

Had an amazing time with Private Balloon Flights. We scheduled a sunrise flight and we were the first balloon in all of Albuquerque to get up into the air - and actually see the sunrise. Everyone working there were awesome and really sweet. Would definitely recommend them to anyone.

Who doesn't have a hot air balloon ride on their bucket list? My daughter and 2 teenage grandsons went with me. Enjoyed it very much. Crew was knowledgeable and experienced. We felt safe with them. They told us just what to expect. Would have loved to be up longer.

The owner was not very friendly, she was very rude, and our pilots name was Frank, same type of personality and just a terrible experience all around I wouldn't recommend flying with this company, should've flown with Rainbow Ryders

Im a fixed wing pilot myself and it was fun to see how ballooning works :-) We enjoyed helping to launch the balloon, and... More

This was a great team. Very personable and knowledgeable. Captain James was friendly and confident. I enjoyed that they allowed my boys and I to help "lift" and "pack". Thanks!
