Beautiful morning flight!

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!

Really a spectacular time! They are a fantastic company that loves what they do and they really take a lot of pride in it! The ride was amazing but we also got to take part in setup and breakdown, so you get a real feel for how everything works and are not just a spectator! And we even got a... More

Pilot Al brings laughter and impeccable piloting skills... the whole crew were a blast to spend time with. The after brunch with champagne was a spectacular set up, not to mention the stories shared etc

We had an amazing ride, touching down on the Rio Grand and ride ended with packing up on a residential street! Fun. Our pilot was very experienced and we felt safe at all times.

Never in our lives have we been more at ease at the heights and lows of his balloon. Truly a fantastic trip. He is a one of a kind... More

AMAZING ... the views were breathtaking. A good friend suggested that I ask for Captain Al. He was friendly and knowledgeable. We were thrilled that we could fly with him. The crew was helpful and friendly. We will book with you again when we return to Albuquerque. Thank you private balloon flights.

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
