This balloon trip was a birthday gift and although we had to reschedule a few times because of the weather, when we finally got airborne it was spectacular. (I don't understand the complaints about rescheduling. I'd rather be safe and have a clear view!) I'm famously scared of heights but lifting off in a balloon is so smooth, it wasn't... More

The experience of a lifetime Freed from the constraints of the ground you float above the city carried by the whims of the air to land, who knows where. A must for the adventurous.

The company overbooks and often have to cancel due to weather conditions and given the very short season at times one may have to wait for one year to the nest to haver the experience which by the way is very short.

Thank you for your feedback. I can understand your frustration with having your flight cancelled. Unfortunately, ballooning is entirely a weather dependent sport. The safety of our passengers, pilots and crew are very important. We try our best to have everyone re booked right away. Please feel free to give our office a call as soon as the schedule re...

Hot Air Ballooning FOR THE WIN! This was definitely something I have been wanting to do (I refuse to say bucket list, I'm 30 ffs) and roped a friend into coming with me ).

We planned our trip well in advance. We had scheduled a balloon ride for Wednesday morning of The Albuquerque Balloon Festival! We were the last group to be taken out to the balloon field! We had a great crew that had come in to assist during the week from Canada. Our Pilot, I believe, said he was from Sri Lanka.... More

What a cool experience! I don't get all of the snotty reviews listed on Google. It was a well organized and well executed event. Sure, we had to be re-booked a few times due to weather but when you're participating in an event that relies on exactly the right amount of wind and near cloudless skies (they cause weather, dontcha...

Thanks so much for your review! Yes, patience is sometimes needed in ballooning and it is well worth the wait if you are cancelled. We certainly cannot control the weather! So happy you had a great time with Zan and the crew! More

All the way to New Mexico, from London, Ontario, Canada, only to have the amazing good fortune to fly with Sundance Balloons, a local company from home, not 20 minutes from my doorstep.

This was our second attempt to fly with Sundance. Previously we got cancelled due to strong winds. Our meeting time was 6.15 am. It was still dark but the Sundance crew was there to welcome us. Gary was collecting all the paperwork while the Pilot (CJ) was checking on the weather. Once we were taken to the Launch field, the... More
