We haven taken friends from the States and Foreign visitors to the Balloon Fiesta, and never had any comments but raves about it. People can walk around the balloons as they ready for flight, sometimes helping anchor it while being readied to take off. There are special shape balloons from dragons to 14 story high pair of jeans. There is... More

Booking online was easy and we received a call the night before confirming that the launch was on for the next morning. We were a bit nervous to go up in a balloon, but we could tell that our...

It was our first balloon flight. Murray and his crew made it an awesome experience. We felt completely safe, had great conversation, learned a lot of history, and saw Albuquerque from an amazing vantage point. When we take another ride, it will only be with World Balloon! :)

I couldn't have asked for more! Informative website, perfect safety track record, fair pricing and charging policy (you don't pay until after you've safely landed), friendly service by phone to confirm your reservation, knowledgeable and entertaining staff the day of, and a brilliant pilot full of fun and insights while we were in the air. They took volunteers to help... More
