The whole balloon experience was SO much fun, and was well worth waking up early. The sight Murray showed us were so beautiful, and him and his whole crew are so personable and fun, the time off the balloon was just as fun as on it because of Murray and the crew. Many many pictures were taken of the beautiful Rio Grand and the city of Albuquerque. We also saw the clouds roll over the mountains just under the sunrise, it truly is so elating to see the earth from above with your own eyes. Afterward, Murray and the crew served us snacks and Mimosas while teaching us about the history of air ballooning, which I learned a lot from! 10/10 would go again any day.

First time in a year that life felt a little "normal." We had such a wonderful time out this morning! Murray (the pilot) and his crew were amazing. If you are a first time visitor or someone who wants to simply enjoy the beauty of Albuquerque, call these guys. We were the first balloon up this morning and were the only ones in the air when the sun crested the mountain. We counted 8 other balloons still on the ground. They had us up and at 1000 feet well before the world came to life with the sunrays. We had history, education, and great jokes to keep us entertained while mother nature did the rest of the work. BOOK this trip! You will NOT regret it!!!
