5 yrs and 9 years ago, these folks were amazing to deal with. Present day, good luck in receiving an email response 7 days later. If it were not for persistent phone calls, I'm still not sure if I'd have received a response yet...at the 10 day mark! They don't seem to want to accommodate dates for people coming into... More

Our family tries to do something different every summer and this definitely topped them all. Private Balloon Flights was so helpful in helping us plan for this, as I had been in contact with them for months prior to our trip. The process of watching them prep our balloon for flight to airing it up was quite amazing. The balloon... More

A hot air balloon flight has been on my wife's bucket list forever. We were in Abq for an antique car tour, and this seemed to be the time to fulfill her wish. We had a wonderful time that we will not soon forget. We lifted off just after sunrise, and had an hour flight that took us over houses,... More

This was a 60th Birthday surprise for my wife. It was an awesome experience. Not only did we get a balloon ride, but we were part of the crew. Our pilot Al was great! I would highly recommend Private Balloon Flights to everyone. We will be back someday.

We had a great time on our balloon flight. We got lucky & had a special pilot who came just for our flight. We learned a TON about balloon flying & being aeronauts. The early morning wake up call was a bit early & we could've very easily met the team at the park instead of the rendezvous spot. The... More
