Owner description: Riding the soft desert winds is the perfect way to celebrate your special occasions with friends, family or when there is romance in the air. And, there is no better place to enjoy it than around Taos. We fly the scenic Rio Grande Gorge as it cuts through the high desert mesa like a 650 ft. deep Grand Canyon. The famous Rio Grande River gently flows through it. As we're gently gliding and enjoying the beautiful panoramas we drop down into the Gorge and kiss the river for the most thrilling balloon ride anywhere. We see baby coyotes, deer, mountain goats and elk in the Spring, blossoming flowers, bushes and cacti in Summer, the colorful changing Fall foliage and the beautiful snow covered Sangre de Cristo Mountains in the Winter - there is always majestic beauty everywhere! Join us for your adventure of a lifetime today!

I was very nervous because I don't like heights, but this was a wonderful experience. The crew and pilots are friendly and knowledgeable. Their safety record is great and they are first class and professional to work with. Combine that with a very unusual trip to the bottom of the Taos gorge and up again the experience is not to be missed.
Do dress warmly in layers.. it's cold at 5 am that high in the air. Also consider a hat because when the burners are in use your head will get very warm

The crew went above and beyond to ensure our safety, comfort, and enjoyment. A little history lesson of ballooning, as well as, local history was included with our experience!!! Amazing adventure!

If you can only do one thing in New Mexico, it needs to be a hot air balloon flight in the Rio Grande Gorge with Pueblo Balloon company. From initial contact, reservations, set up, the flight, the brunch, the storytelling, the photos, the safety and detail, the shear beauty beyond any other balloon flight, Pueblo is a class act operation. Yes it's pricey, like all balloon flights. But the views you cannot beat, the sound of the flames, the jokes and stories, the cool morning air, the ranches and cattle, the mountains, the rocky cliffs. Do not use any other company. These folks know what they are doing. Following the flight, you are entertained with a champagne brunch and story of man's first flight in France. 110% recommend!!

I've been on balloon rides before but this was the best. The Gorge is fantastic, and you wouldn't get another POV like this. Not much is worth getting up at five in the morning for, but this is. The trip ends with the best post-balloon ride champagne toast I've had to date as well. The pilots and crew are knowledgeable and professional. The price is not cheap, but it's worth every penny.

Riding in a hot air balloon is a wonderful experience no matter where you do it--but experiencing it in the Rio Grande Gorge in Taos, New Mexico is a "bucket list" adventure. Pueblo Balloon Co. in Taos is exactly as advertised--professional, knowledgeable, and fun. Door to door service, champagne and brunch are all included--but as good as all that is the best is the camaraderie pilot Ed and his staff provide. If a hot air balloon trip is something you are considering, plan a trip with Pueblo Balloon.
