There is nothing quite like drifting over the countryside in a hot air balloon. New Mexico's largest balloon rides operator offers ride packages that include something for every taste. Soar above the city at sunrise, or in the evening when the wind is right and you will get a true sense of the beauty of Albuquerque. The pilots that fly for this company are experienced and will gladly discuss their flight record with you.
This was the most amazing experience I have ever had. The people that work there are great, helpful and confident. Made me feel comfortable when I was nervous and made me fell apart of the experience when I got to help set up and take down the balloon. Thanks
The whole experience was a pleasure. The staff (pilot & ground crew) were helpful, knowledgable and courteous. Ours was a six balloon launch which added to the photo oppotunities and the party atmosphere.
Our only complaint is the ride seemed too short at 60-minutes. The promotional material did not indicate normal ride time and our expectations were closer to the two-hour range.
The post-ride Mimosa, snack, souvenir hat, pin and certificate were a nice touch. Would definitely do this again.
This was a wonderful experience! We were picked up at our hotel and went to the launch site. My husband helped hold the balloon while it was being blown up. Eric was our pilot and did a great job of pointing out points of interest.
It is so peaceful just floating above everything. Took lots of pictures! We were in the air for about an hour and 10 minutes.
I would recommend this to anyone. It was well worth it.
I was a real nervous Nellie about the prospect of soaring up there in a hot air balloon, but our guy was reasssuring and understanding. We were picked up at our hotel while it was still dark, and even though we had to wait for all the gear to be unloaded, it was interesting stuff to watch, and the time soon passed (I was still hesitant, and in no great rush!!). When that tethering rope was released, I was mightily scared, but Jim, our captain, was informative and I didn't have too much time to think about being scared. He pointed out all the local landmarks, and we soared over Albuquerque, dropping down appreciably to sight petroglyphs and romping jackrabbits. We even saw a coyote. Our landing was relatively easy - just a little bump into the scrub. Our champagne breakfast was welcome and we were deposited back at our hotel by about 10:00 a.m. All in all, a great experience, and one I would recommend.
Don't waste your time or money. This place does not care at all about customer service. They should be called "dream crushers" instead, because that's how I felt when I signed up for one of their rides. Even the Vice President of the company treated me like dirt.
